They aren’t practicing, no scrimmages, nothing going on. Why would there be articles from local sources stirring the pot? I could see if it is some national guy with a Ravens/Browns/Bungles bias trying to start stuff. Sure, the contract is very team friendly and could cut him and be nothing. That was known when they signed him. All this is doing is sewing division in their locker room. For absolutely no reason. Whoever the local writer is, should be called out by the Steelers and left off any press invitations. Sure, write away about a controversy if playing like Mitch or Kenny. That is a real story. But he seems to be stuck in the QB controversy writer mindset and not doing that team he covers any favors. For what? So he can say he called it out if for some reason it happens???

If you want to read how the NFL will be totally destroyed, then read about the newly proposed kickoff rules that will come before the 32 owners at their meeting. CBS sports had the whole thing which came across my telephone this AM, but I don't have a link. I guess ya just go into CBS Sports and you'll find it. After reading the suspect rule changes, I'd be surprised if even the officials could remember all of them and keep track, let alone the teams and players. GAWD!! Special teams will have a whole new meaning. They need 24 owners to pass it, but surely more than that will have their heads screwed on straight and vote it down. (I hope). Opinions???

Whenever you want to know what the Democrats are up to, watch what they accuse the other side of doing.

Sounds like Mad Magazine's "43 Man Squamish,"  which was played on a round field and nobody ever won because nobody understood the rules.

They are also banning the swivel hip-drop tackle.  I'm all for safety, but how do they even tackle now without a penalty?

Football is a high collision sport. You can't really legislate the violence out of the game.

Exactly. The players know that and are rewarded handsomely for putting their bodies through the abuse. I am all for legislating the intentional head hunting and other things that can be penalized for going beyond. They are making it hard to watch though. Almost having a contest with the NCAA on who can ruin football sooner?

So owners made the kickoff rule changes official. I didn't know they have the same rule in the XFL, which makes it even stupider.

Sounds like the Stillers got their new Troy. I was sort of shocked. It sounded like they were going with Graham Burton or possibly grab one of those top CBs that dropped. Or even trade and get one of those guys 5-10 picks later and get another pick in the process.

Upgrading at OT is always a good thing and they did get a former first round CB via Diontae’s trade. So, I think CB is more of a depth/future pick, so wasn’t too shocked they didn’t go there. And history of top CB picks not panning out (hopefully JPJ breaks that trend). I know nothing about this Futaunu dude, but was like OT 5 taken. Does that mean deep draft for OT and he was one of the remaining top guys or they reached? They most likely can get one of the two remaining centers in the 2nd round. They claim to have a center on roster, but weren’t good enough to start at center last year? Does that mean Dan Moore? If they can shore up the center position, the OL can turn from one of the worst (start of this past season) to one of the better lines.

Not the same magic that the Khan artist pulled last year so far. At least with the bang factor. Troy can end up being the next Stiller O line all pro. I guess the Jones pick last year really wasn’t the bang factor too. More came from pick 2 and further on. A ton of luck that those guys were there came with that too.

Two A+ rated drafts in a row. Both lacked splash position picks. If they did this at the end of Ben’s career, he is likely just retiring now. Probably a playoff game win or two. They appear to be in a position to either get a bit lucky that Wilson has some left, see if Fields is at least an athletic game manager or go all out in next years draft.
