    Deebo personified what I think the Steelers were much like Lloyd and Faneca before him. That seems gone now. End of an era.
    Yeah, they don't really have anyone really nasty. DeCastro, maybe. No one on defense has that demeanor though. I think that they wanted Mitchell to bring that. But between playing him out of position and some poor tackling on his part, he was not successful. If you're gonna be nasty, you have to have the game to back it up.

      I still don't understand how he made it all the way back for a TD.

      • This LVE neck deal kind of reminds me of Jonathan Allen last year.

        P.S. J. Allen last year before he got the Lisfranc.

            Put Billy Price on that line, run more with Conner, and you'll see an attitude change on offense at least. On D, the only guys that seems to have some edge are Tuitt and V-Will.

              • A lot of the Steelers visits have been at S, ILB, and WR, with various others mixed in.

                  Price is a goddamn mauler.

                    I'm ahead of the disappointment curve.

                    • Of the three mentioned in that article as options, I'd rank Sweat 3rd.

                      • Based on what's been rumored, Jacksonville's new unis are going to be good.

                            Same. I feel like Sweat's potential ceiling is Bruce Irvin. His potential floor is INSERT PASS RUSHER OUT OF THE LEAGUE BEFORE HIS ROOKIE CONTRACT WAS UP HERE.
                            I don't get people saying Nwosu is an edge player though.

                            Hubbard bothers me in a 3-4. Has a good assortment of pass rushing moves, but he does not do well in space. I feel like every time I watched him standing up and needing to try to tackle someone in space, he got embarrassed. Doesn't have elite speed either.

                              I agree with most of this. I think Hubbard can be a force 'backer in a 3-4, though would be best served in a 4-3, and Nwosu is more of a #2 type rusher than your #1 pro bowl stud type imo. He's still learning and I think his best football is ahead of him. Or, he could bust. Not sure there is much in between with him.

                              • Miami went back to their old color scheme. Jags new uniforms are even more basic than originally rumored. I liked the slashes on the pants of the rumored version. These are fine though. They fixed those helmets.
