  1. Sports maybe now more than ever is cyclical, planned parity as much as the leagues can manage it. Sure you will have some teams that get stuck in ruts but " worst to first" is more the norm now. The steelrz team building will be challenged in the next few years.

    You Missed this, No?

    Ah crap you mean I missed the world cup?  Oh well it will be back in four years in Qater a blazing hot desert.
  3. Yes, along with big ticket guys big ben and a. brown......many die hard steeler fans totally agree. GO BROWNS!
  4. How ironic is this? .......Kudla was apart of the 2002 National Championship team, a two-time Big Ten Champion, First Team All-Big Ten player. He was also named the 2005 defensive MVP at Ohio State. After his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he began a career in insurance and risk management. In 2012, Kudla was named Managing Director of Development for the Fisher College of Business at the Ohio State University. Kudla ranks 14th in Ohio State history for career sacks....... Too bad, things occasionally just happen some times.
  5. http://www.espn.com/blog/pittsburgh-steelers/post/_/id/28194/what-no-deal-means-for-leveon-bell-and-the-steelers What does this mean for Bell's future with the franchise? That he's one and done, basically. There's no going back on a failed negotiation with $14.5 million as a starting point. Tagging Bell a third time would cost $20.88 million, and that's after another 300-plus touches. Even a transition tender of $17.42 million seems unlikely. Bell can hit unrestricted free agency in 2019 as a 27-year-old with mileage issues but a skill set that should age well since he relies more on vision/quickness/savvy than raw athleticism to get yards. Cleveland or San Francisco or the New York Jets will pay him something....... *[Hmmmmm, let's see, Big Ben real old, A. Brown getting older, Le'veon who knows?] What about re-signing him straight up next year? Perhaps if injury or another unexpected variable diminishes his value and Pittsburgh gets him at a value, but that seems unlikely for a player of his caliber. What will the Steelers do now? Give Bell the ball over and over in 2018, then prepare for life without him. Develop draft picks James Conner and Jaylen Samuels, hope for the best -- and for a good compensatory pick from Bell's 2019 departure....... Oh yeah.
  6. SportsCenter Retweeted Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter No deal for Steelers and RB Le'Veon Bell. No deal for Cowboys and DeMarcus Lawrence. No deal for Lions and Ziggy Ansah. No deal for Rams and Lamarcus Joyner. A dud of a deadline day. But the Free Agent Class of 2019 just got stronger. 3:44 PM · Jul 16, 2018
  7. Le'Veon Bell, Steelers fail to reach long-term deal ahead of deadline 4:52 PM ET Jeremy FowlerESPN Staff The Pittsburgh Steelers and running back Le'Veon Bell failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension before Monday's 4 p.m. franchise tag deadline, and his agent says that means it is likely Bell's last season with the team. "His intention was to retire as a Steeler," Adisa Bakari told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "But now that there's no deal, the practical reality is, this now likely will be Le'Veon's last season as a Steeler." Bell will play on the franchise tag for the second consecutive year barring an unforeseen development. He tweeted after Monday's deadline passed that "2018 will be my best season to date.".......... ESPN........ CONTINUED.......
  8. What could go wrong there? Actually the cottonmouths, copperheads also kind of spook me enough......if around. ........but I'll always eat venison done right! With gravy and onions and mushrooms and mashed potatoes, ummmmmm.

    Right now I'd still put him as #1 in a weakening division overall. AJ Green is getting up there, oddly Josh Gordon could end up as the top performer by years end. The steelrz paid a steep price to keep A. Brown there until the 2022 season starts. Worth it? Time will tell..... Oh for comparison my favorite WR GOAT J. Rice peaked around season 11 and never had double digit TD receptions after that.

    A few notes on mr. Instant offense A. Brown he recently signed a contract extension through 2021 -but- if you look at his 9 year career numbers he might have peaked in 2013-2014 and has actually sat out a few games recently......I've had him in my FLs the past few years. Diminishing returns soon? Current Contract Antonio Brown signed a 4 year, $68,000,000 contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, including a $19,000,000 signing bonus, $19,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $17,000,000. In 2018, Brown will earn a base salary of $915,000, a signing bonus of $2,900,000 and a restructure bonus of $12,960,000, while carrying a cap hit of $7,955,000 and a dead cap value of $28,160,000.
  11. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Michael Brantley's muscle and Jose Ramirez's hustle proved to be the difference for the Cleveland Indians on Sunday as the Tribe earned a series split against the visiting New York Yankees with a 5-2 win at Progressive Field. Brantley delivered the go-ahead home run off Yankees reliever Chad Green leading off the bottom of the eighth with the score tied at 2, and Ramirez manufactured an insurance run when he singled, stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error. He later scored on Yan Gomes' sacrifice fly to right. Yankees right fielder Giancarlo Stanton made a strong throw to the plate, but Ramirez beat catcher Kyle Higashioka's tag with a head-first slide. Pinch runner Erik Gonzalez trotted home on a wild pitch by Green for a three-run advantage........ What it means The Indians reach the All-Star break with a 52-43 record, including a 4-6 mark in their last 10, and an eight-game lead in the American League Central with the Twins' game against Tampa Bay still outstanding. Last year, the Tribe led the Central by 2 1/2 games at the break....... Andrew Miller is on schedule to make a rehab appearance Tuesday in Columbus to test his sore right knee, Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said. Miller, on the disabled list since May 26 with a sore right knee, could split time between Columbus and Akron during his rehab, depending on which team is at home on a given day........ cleveland.com......

    Steelers writer Ed Bouchette

    No doubt soccer is on an uptick, American tackle football is on a downtick -but- they are still far apart right now. I wouldn't want to guess what the numbers will look like in 10 or 15 years.
