Steelers claim Cain off of PS

Recommended Posts

I actually hope he sticks around there.  But he might end up back here after JU JU comes back. IF he stays there It will force Ballard to draft a WR instead of taking a chance on him developing.

Interesting. Well let’s see if our staff has held him back from performing or if he is just another talented kid who can’t perform when called upon.

With TY, Fountain and potentially seeing what DF does here, I don’t see us picking WR before the 3rd round. We need to add potentially a QB in the first and we have to resolve that DT/NT spot as well as a CB and a RT/RG. That’s a lot of have to haves to pick wr early imho.

Yep to me this is really good news. We will be in a good spot to get a stud in the draft. If Ballard passes on a stud I will scream.

It will l give Fountain a chance. I also won’t be surprised to see Cain back after the three games they have to keep him on  the roster. I think the Steelers lost another WR also that browns game.

I feel sorry for the guy. Going to another struggling QB situation... 

Look if he had been doing everything right he wouldn’t of been waived if it was all the QB.

Cain was known as a deep threat in college. We have zero deep game with JB thus far. He's never been a possession type WR, which is what they tried to turn him into after switching him back and forth from X to Z multiple times. You always preach JB needs time to develop and improve, but Cain was jacked around and asked to do things he wasn't good at, and didn't get an opportunity to do things he was good at. Pretty hypocritical of you to preach patience with one player and not the other...

Prepare to scream.  If you’re suggesting CB would take a WR in the first round, I think you will be sadly mistaken. Now, if the Colts don’t think they resign TY, then I could see it but forgetting to add in Paris Campbell to the mix as well makes me believe the first round WR guy would be a very slim chance. Warm up the cords my friend.

It might not be the end for him here. He will have to show something or after the three games is up he will be waived again when ju ju and the other WR come back.

They don’t “have” to keep him for 3 games for picking him up on the roster but they do have to pay him 3 game checks I do believe.

Maybe not. But this WR class is supposed to be loaded.  It might not take a 1st rd pick. Maybe the WA pick. It will all depend on who is there with our first pick. This might be a very good time to find that TY replacement. Then with Campbell we could be sitting well.

Not with mason. They dump off the the RB a lot.

Both Pitt and Indy are among the worst in "big play" stats. 

Rudolf is a lot more capable of throwing long though, and was a downfield guy in college.

If the Steelers  just have him run fast and go deep and he has success so be it. The colts clearly wanted more from him and he wasn’t ready to do what they wanted him to do.

I think he’ll find some success in the NFL at some point. Not sure if it’s with Pitt though. I think he would’ve had a much different year here had Luck not retired, but then again most of our WR/TE’s probably would’ve.

Even if Cain comes back to the Colts, a Ballard decision whether to draft another receive will be made independent of that.    That decision will be a stand alone.    And frankly, no matter what,  the need is there...

I think the Colts take a WR on Day 2.    We've got 3 picks to find one we like.   As we all know, this is a very good WR class coming up.     I'd be beyond stunned if we didn't draft a WR in Rounds 2 or 3.    Seems like a natural fit of need and opportunity.    It's a love connection.

Here is the issue though. Are we going to have another WR that needs developing if we pick that low rather then a 1st rd pick. I suppose you could end up with a guy like Mclaurin that late.  I don’t know enough about the WR that might be out there to know how many are going to be out there who are great.  Ballard did rave about the WR class. This could very well be the time we get that TY replacement. Future will be great with Campbell and a draft pick in 2020. Along with Hilton finishing his career with them it could be fun. If we go in with TY, Campbell, a draft pick, pascal and then maybe resign DF that could be a great group if everyone stays healthy. It even leaves room for a guy like fountain or to bring back Rogers. I definitely think this team will keep going with 6 Wr with the injuries this year.

They need to draft one anyway he wasn't and never will be the answer.

Completely agree. I was thinking the exact same thing as I read this thread.

I agree with you and @NewColtsFan, if JB is going to be our QB moving forward we need to get him more help. TY isn't no spring chicken anymore either.

Regardless of QB, that should be a big point of emphasis

Martavis Bryant is what I compare Deon Cain to, lot of 9 routes to succeed. Contrary to thought process/reputation, Rudolph has been under throwing his wideouts.

 

If they use him right, he can be productive since it doesn’t seem like their vertical offense is that creative right now.

Sorry you didn’t get it! And I’ve been one of the biggest Cain doubters on the Forum, since he was drafted.

    • It is more Randall Cunningham arm like, IMO, but yes, he has to see them and hit them. But that is true of every QB-WR. He does lead them to the right shoulders in short throws, if you look closely at them. He uses every bit of his physical talents to the max. and even on that drop by Darwin Thompson, the RB who did not turn around for a hot read throw that hit him in his back, the QB read was right, the throw was right, but his RB was not on the same page because he was a rookie. Those are things I am curious to see get better with time with Mahomes as QB as he works with rookies too.    It is like the long ball in baseball, everyone gets enamored with them but the base hits move the sticks, like first downs in football. Because Mahomes hits the long balls, they overshadow a lot of things he does underneath. For a 2nd year guy to build chemistry with Kelce who is thrown to as he comes out of the break, even that Tyreek Hill drop that he came out of the break, and same with Sammy Watkins for a crucial first down late in the game, he is still learning the position and I see improvement from Year 1 to Year 2 where he leads them right, IMO. So, no, the WRs are not wide open every single time till he manufactures time by moving back or moving sideways. It is like 10 yards back or 5 yards lateral, before a 30 yard throw for a 20 yard completion, that is his style, LOL. It is an adjustment for traditionalists, IMO, but once you adjust, it is enjoyable. At least it is to me.
    • What a horrible first round pick. DE is no where near our biggest need, and not only that, but this would be a huge reach. Matos is very raw and could easily be had in the mid 2nd round.    Indy needs to go DT, WR, or QB round 1. Possibly LT if Costanzo were to retire. 
    • I can agree with you that we have to get the DT spot fixed one way or the other and I personally don’t care if it’s our first draft pick or best FA DT on the board that fits our scheme. If we don’t fix that space, our defense is not going to hold scoring teams enough at bay and getting avg to above avg play from our QB will not be adequate enough. Prime Manning and Harrison and Edge ain’t coming back nor is Luck so I say we resolve the defense first as we look to improve the QB spot and develop it.    and for the love of god, can we use more power scheme blocking for our offensive line and less zone type crap. We have a few maulers, let’s use that to run over people. 
    • I was thinking about that too. I could only think of the Rams (greatest show on turf) beating the Titans, but I don't remember if the defense was that special. But then pats turning around and beating the Rams the next year. I think their D was tough that year - but again I can't remember.    I think the 49'ers are going to stop KC. 49'ers Defense is nasty!    I love that football is fun to watch again - since the pats aren't in it. 
    • San Francisco seems to have the more balanced team and has made fewer mistakes than Kansas City. I would take Shanahan's coaching over Reid's. (Not an Andy Reid fan, though really can't explain why-it just is.) Besides, Garoppolo is easy on the eyes. So, taking the 49ers.    Something will be missing in this year's Superbowl, though. Oh yeah, no Patriots.
