“I think the more that you play, the more you are in positions on footballs and you are approaching the ball inside out, you learn to maintain that consistency, or you learn to chew up the free grass associated with a guy who has to cover great distances. All of those things can be done in a practice setting without actually tackling, and we have been emphasizing that. We’ll continue and we’ll expect the tackling to improve because of it.
“It’s just about improving on a day to day basis and some fundamental things individually and collectively.”
And from on of the comments on the page:
If you listen to "Pittsburgh Live" w/ Wolfley & Labs, the female reporter/host mentioned that Mike Mitchell even said that this was the 1st time he has seen a lack of tackling in mini camps & practices.
So I hope that they continue to have a horrible defense that can't tackle or stop the run. We might have a game where DLo or Stew gets a 100+yd day.
Also, looks like they're RT Marcus Gilbert is hated by their fanbase and Tomlin said he's not in danger of losing his job even though he's given up 4 sacks this year. I'm sure this has been mentioned, though, in other threads.
cancelled yes? not that it matters, even if the stadium is full of panther fans only they're still a pedestrian home crowd. late getting to seats for opening kick off, late getting to seats after half, not very knowledgeable as far as when to get loud and when to quiet down and opposing teams fans historically rep well in BOA. I'd love for this trend to finally get turned around
To be fair, the new bag policy has really messed up people getting into the stadium. It's not the actual policy but the employees at the entrance and the organization to it. Add in horrible Charlotte traffic and the fact there isn't decent parking surrounding the stadium like in most stadiums. Yes, people should get there earlier though
Not sure why after halftime though, people ordering bojangles?
If the NFL suspends him, we're in the clear. That's what I'd prefer. Is it fair to Hardy if he is eventually form innocent? No. But it was his fault to be involved with the crazy woman and he has brought this drama to our franchise, something that's in his contract that he can be suspended for. Unfortunately, someone sold out to media pressure and benched him.
They don't look good. Leveon Bell has been the only bright spot. Bell is an absolute beast and could end up being the best RB in the NFL in a year or two. Their offense aside from Bell looks bad and their defense is not the defense you think about when you think about a Steelers defense. Mike Mitchell has looked absolutely horrible and he basically was responsible for two Ravens scoring drives last Thursday night.
Honestly, this looks like a game we win - easily.
No way Steelers score more than 10 if we held a better offensive team to 7 points (although Detroit should have been around 17 points)
They have a weak defense, they arent as disciplined, they have nothing special on their offense that worries me, regardless of who is running the ball.
Only thing that bothers me is that this isn't a real home game for us. Watch it be like 50% Steeler fans next Sunday.
I for one would love to go to the police and charge anyone I want of domestic violence towards me, like Drew brees. It's be great, I can get them suspended forever, maybe even jail time, and then my team won't have face Brees anymore. With the media frenzy about domestic violence right now I'm sure no one would even question the validity of that, even if I'm male and never been near New Orleans
(I'm not saying Hardy is innocent but there isn't clear cut evidence either like in the Rice situation)
Character goes a long way with me and I dont like divas.. Its why i wasnt a fan of Smitty and why im not a fan of Cam. Keek, CJ, Olsen, Star. Those are players I can respect. Smitty was a loose cannon psychopath and Cam is an attention seeking, camera hog. Cam has been in the league 4 seasons now, can he just mature already instead of acting like a 13 year old on the sidelines?
Yeah, screw Cam and his awesome smile and selfless deeds he does off the field. Man, he needs to grow up. And that Steven Smith, I really wish he hadn't helped carry our franchise the last 12 years, such a thug move to sacrifice everything for one team/city/area.
