Inactives Vs. Steelers


Recommended Posts

The Steelers ground game will be depleted today without two of their running backs as they take on the Indianapolis Colts at Heinz Field. 

Both James Conner and Benny Snell are inactive after suffering injuries against the Miami Dolphins last week. 

With Conner out, it will be Jaylen Samuels who gets the start at running back. 

“The next guy has to come in there and play really well,” said Maurkice Pouncey. “We get Jaylen back. He is a slow runner. He reads the holes the right way. He is an upfield guy. It always seems like he is always falling forward. Whenever you see that as a lineman, you are like, man, all right, that is a good back. Him knowing the offense and the different things he can bring, sub-packages and things like that. It’s awesome to get him back, but it’s going to be great when we have all of them.”

Offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner is confident in Samuels and knows he can do the job. 

“He’s really unique as a pass catcher, a route runner,” said Fichtner. “He’s nifty in a lot of ways. We know he can be capable of being that one back that can play all three downs. He’s done it before in big games. I think back to New England last year. I mean, he’s had plenty of those moments. So, I’m just excited to have him back.”

The Steelers also have Trey Edmunds, and the physical running back is ready to do what is asked of him as well.

I just don’t get the Wilson thing with Desir out. What was the purpose of upgrading Desir.  

Because he got healthier and there was a chance he could play and the Colts didn’t want to get fined for lying on the injury report.

 

questionable just means 50/50 it doesn’t mean he’s going to play.

 

i think he got upgraded because he traveled with the team and they hoped he would be able to play based on how he was doing today.  Sadly he wasn’t healthy enough.

Marvel Tell is clearly jumping over Wilson. Wilson will be gone after the season.

I think that decision was made when they were shopping him.  It’s telling that Taylor is dressed and he’s not.  He’s just not working out here.

In fans eyes yes.  In the league’s not so much or they would have.

Taylor is the backup slot though.

I guess they couldn't find a trade partner for Wilson? Why don't they just cut him? They must not think too much of him considering Rocks performance against the broncos.

Because Desir is hurt and Moore has been banged up as well.  If someone else gets hurt they don’t have someone who would probably better and knows the system.  In other words he’s the break glass in case of emergency option at corner.

As a lifetime USC Trojan fan (whose team now has a lame duck head coach after last nights embarrassment  on national TV ) I am gonna have the bar set pretty high for Mr. Tell (and he CAN reach that bar ) ………..GO COLTS !!!!!

Trade deadline is over, Wilson is just dead weight to them now 


Yeah I know. That was a jab at all the people who jumped my case last week when I brought up him being a healthy scratch again for his second consecutive coaching staff with a lack of depth at the position because we either 1) already had a trade lined up for him that we didn’t execute because.... well, because. Or 2) they sat him so he wouldn’t get hurt so they could trade him.

    • Crap, sorry.   with the 129th pick, the Seahawks select:   Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn   If that doesn’t make Russell Wilson happy, then 7@€# him!   @crazycolt1and the Jags are aim the clock.
    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.
