    No. He was a bad QB. The main problem was that Bill Cowher kept starting him year after year, and in most of those years Kordell had no backup to speak of because Cowher thought he was too delicate to have competition. Both Cowher and Stewart were hated on a lot, with lots of nasty rumors going around that they were homosexual lovers. Believe me, in DWF Steeler Nation, as the years went on (and on and on), Kordell had very few supporters, that's why I mentioned him. It surprises me that you younger guys actually think he was regarded as good; if anything Kordell Stewart set the Great Black Quarterback Experiment back a number of years.

    Due to multiple injuries on the d-line, Henry Mondeaux was recalled from the practice squad and recorded a sack Sunday while playing 28% of the snaps.

    The Steelers sport a terrible all-sumo o-line, but on defense they currently have two White starters in Watt and Schobert, and three backups -- Mondeaux, Spillane and Tuszka, definitely the most White defensive players during Mike Tomlin's 15 year run, and Bill Cowher's 15 year run also for that matter.

    I saw Mondeaux’s sack in real time - it was a great play. Glad to see him getting playing time. Was Aaron Smith or Brett Keisel the last defensive lineman to play for the Steelers?

    I remember for a time in the 2000s the Steelers had Smith, Keisel and Hoke (who more than held his own anchoring the 3-4 when Casey Hampton was injured).

    Smith and Keisel both started at DE in their 3-4 and both were very good, particularly Smith, who unsurprisingly was very under-rated. And Hoke was indeed a really solid tackle, could have started for many teams and should have for the Steelers as Hampton faded.

    Schuster is out for the year, sure would be nice if they resigned Matt Sexton.

    The Steelers signed Anthony Miller, the second round bust from the '18 draft who was cut by the Bears and then most recently by the Texans, who along with the Lions have the worst group of receivers in the league.

    It's concerning seeing such a decline in tackles from Schobert.. I'm thinking it's gotta be scheme wise. Hard to think Schobert has declined this much.

    Simple solution. Start Spillane and Schobert together at MLB. If Bush is really a 4.4 guy slide him into that hybrid LB/SS role! Start all 3. Couple extra DBs are mostly useless anyways!

    Exactly. Full-on Commie agenda for controlling the world. No one is off limits in this war on anyone who is not "in the club" as George Carlin used to call the elites.

    Pat Freiermuth has more touchdowns than all other rookie tight ends combined! And that of course includes Kyle "The Second Coming" Pitts.

    If I were the Steelers I'd go after Mitch Trubisky in the off season. I'd offer a three year contract at $8 million a year. That sounds about right.

    I’ve been saying this also....The talk radio guys have brought up his name....
    I’d go with Mitch and trade down my first round pick for someone else’s 27th pick and a third rounder or two....If the 22nd pick isn’t someone you love, trade it for 2 or 3 day two picks over the next year or so......Load up on day two guys.....You will have a more solid overall team.....GM’s listen up.....Don’t get wood over 40 times and athleticism...
    Can the kid play football? If a wideout can’t high point a ball, don’t draft him....If a db can’t turn his head around and defend a pass 40 yards downfield, don’t draft him....Kids with two last names and insistent on calling themselves Jr or the third or fourth when their dad never played football, be wary.....They may be more about themselves than playing football......Serious stuff....In search of dirtbag, gym rat players, not prima donnas..
