I think worst case scenario we finish 11-5. Just get to the playoffs and let our experience take over.


I'd usually be right there with ya Brinker but I'm not feeling the optimism this year.  Steelers are a solid contender for the Wild Card at best.  They've allowed a pedestrian 162 points and scored an unimpressive 196.  They're in 3rd place in their own division in both categories and in the standings!

Who knows man?  I'm trying to talk myself into drinking the Kool-Aid but I ain't quite there yet  helmet ninja

Week 4: Mendenhall should be cut.

If I said he should be cut, then I apologize.  That was knee-jerk to be sure.  But I still think that Redman should be getting equal carries if not starting.

Let me add:  Thought the Oline and RM played well in the run game last night.  They just needed to run it one more time.

I really disagree with the way LeBeau handled things at the end of the game, but I don't think he should be fired. I'd say the same for Tomlin.  This team really overachieved last year IMO; and they have pulled it together after some tough losses.  Hoping they can bounce back for the rest of the 2nd half of the season.

Back to the topic:  We pulled a guy off the scrap heap last year and it worked out.  Perhaps we should try to do it again.

You're not alone in that boat.  I've said it several times and I'll say it again.  Mendenhall is fortunate he was a R1 pick.  If he was a late rounder, he'd be backing Redman up.

One more year left on his deal after 2011.  I'd be very surprised if they bring him back.  He is not worth a big second contract.  TBH, I don't think any RB is worth it anymore.  With the way the game has shifted, RBs have really become dispensable.  How many Super Bowl teams have had a high priced, marquee RB lately?  If anything, I think they might be more of an albatross, cap~wise.  Give a RB a huge deal and you can't afford to get yourself a franchise QB.

Along with S and OL (amazingly, maybe even LB too), a RB should be a target in the first three rounds of next years draft.

Yeah, I'd concur, even on LB. Thought to myself that we actually need to get stronger up the middle of the D. We'll soon (if not in 2012) need a NT, already need another MLB, and need a ball-hawking, able-to-cover-deep S.

We should be able to find a decent RB AFTER the first rounds. I'd like us to go DB/OL 1st then DB/OL/LB/NT 2nd and 3RD.

I also think they need a kicker, but if they take a punter or kicker prior to the fifth, I will go ballistic.

The main reason (besides not stopping Slacco on 3rd down all night) was horrible end of game clock management.  In no way would I want to get rid of Tomlin, this has to be addressed as it's 2 weeks in a row when we could've put the game out of reach with a few runs and a field goal.  Luckily the Pats were actually inept and we won but the Ravens took full advantage and beat us hands down.  How can Tomlin be at this level and not know how to handle the clock?  It's pee wee football shit we're talking about here.....

I know it's just how it goes with injuries and the best teams win with them but if Woodley's on that field along with the way Harrison was playing, they wouldn't have converted that many 3rd/longs and we take them down.  So frustrating

Who knows what the Bengals do the rest of the season, but we could see both wild card teams from the AFCN.
