Just an unbelievable saga.
It’s all good man, we need the Steelers Score game!
Sorry, guys. I’m working on finishing the build of the new forum server but I don’t know phpBB at all, and it’s taking forever.
Moncrief in PIT is boom or bust in my opinion. It’s good that they have guys to rotate in/out… even better if Holton gets re-signed to the 53 as rumored.
I don;’t know about a “beast” but Snell gave good effort and flashed a little on STs.
Holton, Tevin Jones, Samuels, Nix, Skipper, Scales… those guys were really good on teams this preseason.
The Switzer Scan is gonna command a lot of attention.
Numbers don’t go that low.
and the narrative that Oli Maatakevich is a “beast on teams” is a joke. He is STs willing and capable but not a standout player, especially this year.
re: Switzer on the boat ride… I think Spencer was on there, too.
re: Ola to IR… I think they’ll be reluctant to do that if he is (as was reported) nearly ready to return. Original diagnosis was 2-4 weeks, and we’re already 2 weeks in. Also, IR to return players have to be on 53 man roster at cutdown, then placed on IR to open a spot. That means you can’t use it for an extra roter spot to keep someone from being exposed to waivers. I have no problem letting Snell, Gentry, Matakevich, or even Fred Johnson pass through waivers. I am reluctant to expose Spillane or Tevin Jones but they probably won’t move the meter for another team. No way do I want to expose Gilbert, Skipper, Banner, Kelly, or Spencer.
Guys I absolutely do not want to risk losing, aside from the obvious ones:
Guys I would like to keep around:
Guys who will probably make the roster and I actively do not want:
Spencer simply isn’t a good enough receiver and route running to be a key 3rd down guy.
No, but Johnson is, and he should be on the field ahead of Switzer. Spencer IS a much better returner. Should have ditched Switzer and Rogers, replaced with Spencer and Holton. Big STs upgrade, Johnson sees more PT. Win-win.
I don’t think they’ll practice squad a QB unless they keep only 2 active. Not enough reps to go around, even on Wednesdays. 3rd QB typically runs the opponent offense. I’d keep Hodges around just to have him play Baker Mayfield––he’s a perfect match.
I like that, Pabst: “Oli Maatakevich”
Look at it this way: Kenneth Dixon is supposedly on the bubble in Baltimore. Who wouldn’t rather have Dixon on the roster? Snell did play well on STs, but arguably not even as well as Edmunds.
Yes, it looks that way
