    If I had the ability to pick which QB to play for my team, I think I would have Russel Wilson over everyone including the great Rodgers and Mahomes.

    Yeah, the anonymous players that leaked dissatisfaction to the media last week. And now him calling them out. Beginning of the end.

    You wonder how many more painful losses Jerry will sit through before pushing the button.

    Steelers are finding ways to win, 7-0 now with an important win over the Ravens in Baltimore.

    They'll be 8-0 next week, that is for sure!

    Indeed. I think you actually saw a difference in the defence with Poe, Worley and Griffen gone. It looked more of a unit and were playing together.
    Diggs will be a star.

    This season is gone anyway, so picking top 5 in both the first two rounds will hopefully get us a couple of defensive playmakers and/or OLinemen.

    LvE was insane - if he stays healthy, he's a top top LB.
    Jaylon Smith ... it hurts watching him. I'd trade for a pick between 2nd-4th (if someone can bite).
    I would offer Zeke to Seattle for a 2nd - but I doubt Jerry can bite that.
    Both the above were terrible deals.
    I think if we pick top 3 ... we have to go with a QB, which gives us 5 years to build a team again (as giving Dak 40 million ... and not improving this defense is pointless if we want to 'win')

    If we're giving a new contract to Dak, then I want Sewell.

    Would anyone, even Seattle, trade a 2nd round pick for Zeke at the moment?

    And to get the only QB that is noteworthy (Lawrence) this year, we will need the top pick, anything less, we should trade down for more picks.

    If we are looking to get a replacement QB this year, we can do it later on in the draft for much better value.

    I'm holding out hope that Dak looks at the big picture and signs a new deal for decent money, but still with a home town discount. You never know.

    Because Zeke is still a top top top back ... and for a team that wants to win the super bowl, they go all in. I'd honestly trade him for a 3rd or 4th just to get rid of the contract.
    Yah I would hope Dak does that but I don't know.

    I think he is past his prime honestly, but watch him get traded for peanuts and have the best few seasons of his career.

    And lets assume you are correct, and he is still a top back, how much does that really add to a team in today's NFL given the nature of offense and the salary cap restrictions?

    he adds a ton because he's a) a good receiver b) an excellent blitz protector and c) can easily run 100 yards a game with a decent o-line (ours is shite, and we're down 21-0 before the 1st half ends week after week ... exaggeration but still).
    Considering what the Titans did, there's room for this kind of back in the NFL still ...

    I agree, those additions are important for any team, but I would argue that would could get the same level of production that we get from Zeke from a stable 2-3 journeymen tailbacks, and for cheaper than we are currently getting Zeke for.

    The Derrick Henry example is valid, and I agree a team can be built and have success while being a ground based team. This also shows how foolish the new contract we gave Zeke was, 6 years for $90 million (15 per year), whereas Henry got 4 years for $50 million (12.5 per year). So they got him cheaper and probably more importantly, for less time.

    After this season Zeke still has 4 years left on his deal! Given that, I think we will, and should hang on to him for at least another year, just because he will have better trade value even later into his contract, or better yet, he and the team may actually play up to their supposed capabilities next season.

    You're missing my point bro ... I want to convince a team to trade for Zeke... I think hes a waste of money!

    Haha, I would say I missed it by quite a bit actually. And I think you are right, sadly I highly doubt we will get good value in a trade this year, seeing as Bill O'Brian has already been fired and Jerry Jones only owns the Cowboys.

    Watch us end up buying him out, just to get him off our books.

    Steelers get to 8-0 after trailing for a majority of the game. Minkah Fitzpatrick is some signing.
