    The Big Uglies performed well, for sure.  But regardless of who was in front of him, CAP dominated out there.  
     
    Pitt field is notoriously like 3 feet deep, and CAP was shaking dudes like he was Shady McCoy on a clay court; the first guy didn't stand a chance.  In fact, all our backs did a great job of getting positive yards on every touch.  If an edge closed, they turned up field and got what they could.

    Norwood with the YAC, and then flip to the sidelines and we get Wegher with a yack.  Nice.

    Probably played his way onto the practice squad during the preseason.  Good for him.  We need hungry bodies.  Who's gonna back up CJ?

    We all know what Bersin can do in his limited role.  The idea behind Byrd was that he could do a bit more than just be a possession receiver that's 5th on the depth chart.  That said, it's not a bad position to be in debating these two talents for the same WR position.

    I know his history.  But his receiving ability out of the TE position is amazing.  If you focus on blocking, you have a roster spot.  I just want to know why he hasn't been used that much.  You could tell he has talent from the first pre season game, but we didn't develop it much throughout the preseason.

    AAANNNDDDD Marcus Lucas.  This dude must not be able to block at all.

    How is Lucas not higher on the depth chart?  Simonson comes out of nowhere, Bones gets hurt, and Lucas does nothing but run routes and catch.  I would have loved to see some Olsen and Lucas in the preseason just to see what we have.

    Cox earning his way onto the practice squad.  Byrd, well, he won't be on ST anytime soon.  Sucks, because he may make the team, but he may be fighting with Norwood to get a roster spot.

    The media hates our OLine this year.  We hated our OLine last year.  If it makes you mad, just don't read it.

    Stew, CAP [who everybody has forgotten about], Todman, and let Fozzy and Wegher duke it out of the practice squad.

    I'd take it one step further and say they're toothless (gum less, perhaps) because Goodell's antics may be then reason they do watch.

    Which begs the question, is 3 games enough? 2?

    Companies absolutely owned workers during the early 20th century. Unions sprung up as a reaction.  Yes, today there are companies and employees that keep things internal. And then there are large conglomerates who band together, i.e., unionize, that the courts recognize.  If it were not for the court system, retirement would be a unicorn and wealth would be even more concentrated than it is now.

    The thing with the courts, they can step in when the CBA--ANY CBA not just the NFL and the NFLPA's--is violated.  An arbitration award is nothing more than a contract.  That contract has no legal effect until the legal system gives confirmation.  The only reason arbitration exists is because the legal system needs to divert flow.  This CBA and the resulting negotiations wouldn't even exist if it were not for the court system allowing it.  So, to say the courts should not be involved is missing the point that the courts were involved in the first instance and have tried ever since to not be.
