I'll Give credit where credit is due...That was a statement win congrats.....Huge win and that was an awesome win for Chuck Pagano...AWESOME STORY. I gave you hell about not beating any good teams You beat a really good team today. AGAIN CONGRATS.

and the Packers and the Vikings who could both very well be playoff teams as well.  We also beat an extremely talented Lions team (yes I know the record does not look good but make no mistake the Lions have a tone of talent).  I'd agree the Colts didn't have the hardest schedule in the league but they were 2-14 last year they weren't supposed too.

I will tell you that 3rd and 23 to Hilton was one of the most perfect passes I've seen all year. He did it again 3rd game in a row with no INT, leading this so called "expansion team as people were saying at the years beginning" to a victory. Special teams and D hit on all cylinders, pretty scary knowing the potential this team has.

Can't wait to see this monster build up to its fullest potential. I smell a possible very dominant team.

This thread is hilarious... Luck didn't deserve to make the Pro Bowl over Manning, Brees, Schaub, and if Roethlisberger hadn't gotten hurt, he would have been ahead of him too.

RG3 shouldn't have made it, IMO, because I think Ryan, Rodgers, and Brees should be in, but...RG3 has also been THE most electrifying player in the league this year. I can't blame people for voting for him. Why do we have to knock Griffin because Luck hasn't been as exciting to watch? Geez...

Anyway, Brady never goes to pro bowls iirc, and Manning and/or Schaub are probably going to be in the SB (if Brady isn't)... Lucks gonna be in the game. chillax

Most electrifying? Why cause he can run and option play? That's your opinion and the crap media driven drivel. He's good, not knocking him. But It's being blown way out of proportion

He played an excellent game today, no doubt about that. Struggled early but put it together in the econd half.

He struggled in the third quarter I thought.  That's where he had his in-completions streak.  What I liked though is I saw him dumping it off more I thought I saw them trying to do that more in the KC game but it just wasn't working but then today outside of the bomb to Hilton he didn't really take many shots deep which tells me I think Luck is starting to see the field better and the game is start to slow down just a little bit for him.  I really think he is going to explode next year if we can improve the line in front of him. 

 

Oh and this is just a side point about Luck he has one sick hardcount!

Schaub is still a top 7 QB in my book

I think he's in the group below the "elite" QBs in the NFL but I think that's as high as he'll ever go.  I think Luck is in the same group as him but I think Luck will work his way into the elite group at some point.

Agreed on both counts. He's not forcing the ball as much which is helping his efficiency. Saw a lot of improvement in this game. The good thing about Luck is that all of his faults are correctable through coaching.

And yeah, that hard count is sick. Reminded me of the Bucs-Redskins game where Griffin pulled them offsides four times or so in the game.

Schaub might be top 10.

 

There are the Living Legends: Peyton and Tom.

 

The "Elite": Brees and Rodgers

 

The almost Elite: Big Ben and Eli

 

Just needs to win a big game: Romo and Matty Ice

 

Above average: Cutler, Stafford, Schaub, Flacco, Rivers, Palmer

 

Average: Freeman, Bradford, Dalton, Newton, Kaepernick, Locker, Ponder

 

Young and Up and Comers: Luck, RgIII, Wilson, Tannehill.

 

Garbage: Fitz, Sanchez, Gabbert

He barely makes the top 10, maybe not even the top 10 (Rodgers, Brees, Mannings, Brady, Stafford, Roethlisberger, Romo, just to name a few).

 

He's one of those guys that won't make a ton of mistakes, but he won't win games for his team.

    • Rough 53 (some will be cut)   QB- Wentz, Eason RB- Taylor, Hines, Mack, Wilkins LT- Cosmi, Tevi LG- Nelson, Pinter C- Kelly, Hunt RG- Glowinski, Reed RT- Smith, Davenport TE- Doyle, Allie-cox, Morris, Thomas  WR- Hilton, Pittman Jr, Pascal, Campbell, Newsome, Pattmon   DE- Houston, Banogu, Turray, Smith, Muhammed, Rochelle DT- Buckner, Stewart, Lewis, Stallworth, Brown LB- Leonard, Okereke, Speed, Adams, Franklin CB- Rhodes, Melifonwu, Moore, Ya-Sin, Tell, Rodgers, McCain III S- Blackmon, Willis, Davis, Odum   K- Blankenship  P- Sanchez LS- Rhodes    
    • Those three PLUS wide receiver!   Those Big 4 match our four biggest needs. 
    • *Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.   **I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.   Here we go... yep. No trades.   1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo.    2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.   4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.   5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol   6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.   7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.   Final notes:   - Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.   -I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability   -I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.
    • It’s the University of Michigan for goodness sake!    It would be a bigger deal if Dodds wasn’t there!   
    • I'd like to hear the board's thoughts on this topic from more of an outside perspective. From my experience Steelers fans fall into two camps (generally speaking); totally irrational and loyal to the death, highly critical of anything to do with Pittsburgh Football unless it results in a championship (and not always in a rational manner).     Now for my thinking, this issue should have been addressed much sooner, but if nothing else after the disaster that was the 2019 season. You have an aging QB who just blew his elbow out and were starting "junior varsity" replacements. You have been bleeding free agents all off season in 2020 and have lost or watched the decline of key players at LT, C, LB, RB, S, CB and just resigned a WR free agent. Plus, you also need a LG. These stooges are actually suggesting using a 2nd round pick on a QB from college when the decision to do nothing about the QB position has caused half the team to get sent packing because you have next to nothing to spend in free agency.   This is after these same people lauded the Dwayne Haskins singing as a "steal". Pittsburgh literally got him for nothing this year after WFT ate all the "bad" in his contract, a 15th overall pick coming into his 3rd year in the NFL who drastically needed a change of scenery.   I'm convinced that if it was up to Tomlin he would have already moved on. We all know he's a master at coach speak at the podium but he's a completely different guy otherwise. Even at that, he's started to unravel a bit because you can tell he's getting frustrated with some of his more recent public comments. He is no BSer. I get the warm fuzzy feeling we all have when a team is loyal to a player who has been valuable and produced at a high level, but I mean even New England and Indianapolis let Manning and Brady walk after all of their success.   Please tell me in what universe does any of this even make sense? I am confused.
