Maybe Scott will surprise and be able to play reasonably well over half a season. I'll put it this way: I think he'll do better than Tony Hills, though that's faint praise.
Too early for draft talk? Well, never too early to look ahead, fix what needs fixed. Assuming we'll draft in the 20s, and hoping we get the 32 slot. But if you guys are totally happy with our OL and CBs and such, then just ignore the draft talk.
A little pressure off: Ravens lose, so not as big if we do drop the Patsies game.
Pressure back on: check out those Browns trying to bubble up.
What's the o/u on Beardy pass attempts this week? I'll say 50.
I hope J. Scott does surprise but I highly doubt it. If J. Scott goes down with an injury, we just lost our backup LT and RT. I think Scott as a fill in, coming in and out would be ok but to ask him to step up and be the full time go to guy @ LT the rest of the year? I don't see it. Of course, I'm wrong from time to time...I'm surprised Finny that your down on T. Hills. I really like him as a LT, as I see him as a pure pass blocking LT (main reason he hasn't suited up the entire year, a 1 position OT). Something we haven't had in Pittsburgh for a long time. He had a bum ankle during the Pre-Season and I thought he looked solid (of course, pre-season is what it is...). I'd rather have a pure pass blocker @ LT protecting Ben's blind side than a guy who couldn't keep his job in Buffalo. I have a feeling J. Scott is going to show why he's a career backup and T. Hills is going to get his chance to shine.
Brady: 40 attempts this week. Brady's last 3 games have been anything but spectacular. I believe he has an average (of those 3 games) of a 55% completion percentage, but he doesn't turn the football over. On the road their Offense hasn't been on point, but they've squeaked out wins. After getting smashed by Cleveland you have to wonder if The Steelers are going to be in for a dog fight. I'll go on record and say we win by 13 and skippy doesn't miss a FG.
