Tate picked up by the Vikings.  Probably a good fit there.

Blount untouched.  Toxic.

All's well so long as Bell's healthy; Archer & Harris won't combine for much, although the dynamic is now speed, rather than blunt force.  We don't have that big back, for all the good it did goal line vs. the Jets.

All joking aside, the move was necessary, but it certainly creates a(nother) weakness.  

Early in the season, the RB position was viewed as a position of strength.  Now, the team is forced to either push Archer into more action (something he doesn't appear to be comfortable with yet), roll with a practice squadder in Harris or sign a guy off the RB heap.

Personally, I'm interested to see what Harris can do, but let's be honest, if he was tearing it up, he wouldn't have been on the PS.  I mean, he was battling (presumably) with Archer for a spot to dress and to date, he hasn't been able to crack it.  Considering Archer's performance so far this season, that's not saying much.  And, considering the percentage of the workload that Bell carries, I'm not too keen on his primary backups being those two.  I think they need some proven talent on the bench too.

At the end of the day, I'd kick the tires on a guy like Tashard Choice or BGE, bring up the kid and demote Archer since he doesn't seem to have a clear role (yet).  Let the FA and Harris battle it out for #2 on the depth chart.

Porter had his head-scratching moments as a player; the pre-game fight with William Green, waiting for Ray Lewis after a game, fighting Levi Jones at a casino.

But he has always been a leader and looks to have made a good transition to coaching. 


Yeah, sometimes Peazy let his emotions get the best of him.  Opened the door for 92's career, incidentally, with the Green fight.  But you can't say Peazy didn't have heart.  And we've needed an injection of fire on this D.  If he can also teach technique, he's a huge addition.  Assuming that he can, having worked from Colo. St. back to the Steelers.  Not sure he has the upside to go much broader than a position coach, but I like seeing him on Sundays.

And yeah, kudos to him for being the enforcer with Blount.  The cunt.

If he can't cut it in NE or Pitt, he likely is N-F-L...particularly when considering the position he plays

Yup.

BTW, not to be too hyperbolic WRT Bell, but last night some of his moves where he would come to a stop, change direction, juke the defenders, the motion was reminiscent to me of Barry.  Not sayin' he's Barry, but the kid has a nice arsenal of accelerate-brake-accelerate moves, all the while keeping his eyes on where he's going.  Outstanding vision, always surprises me with how he can get an extra yard or three.  The fact that he's one of our best WRs doesn't hurt, either.

Dri Archer's gonna get 2 TDs against the Saints on 4 carries for 113 yards, just to spite your ass, Merman.  And a 47 yard KR.



I hope so.  Also hope Mike asshole Mitchell picks off a few passes.  That would be some of the best crow I've ever eaten.

Well, that's not as bad as steelersdepot's tweet suggests.  Dumb but not I don't read that as a suggestion to "go kill urself" or whatever the kids say on social media these days.
