Weird that though our season has ended

L.C. Greenwood Jersey , my thoughts have not. Here are ten of them:Given all the drama we went through through the season, one could almost pretend the season continues, since the drama does. Perhaps we could call it As the Stomach Turns, or The Bold and the Boomin?. Seriously, is this ever going to end? One down, one to go in the Lombardi elimination sweepstakes. I may just tune into the Chiefs/Patsie game, that?s how confident I am it will go our way. I will enjoy watching them lose. Which reminds me, who was it who boldly went out on a limb and predicted it would be the top two seeds in each conference? The same one who predicted Franco would play the hero against the Raiders in 1972, that?s who.I am grateful for the internet and the democratization of communication that it has wrought. I get to write about the Steelers, without having to outperform Ed Bouchette, Gerry Dulac or Bob Labriola. I hate, however, that the same tool gives voice to sundry tools piping in on our drama. Everyone has an opinion Dermontti Dawson Jersey , including me. But now everyone?s opinion has an outlet. Everyone?s a theologian. And everyone?s a sportswriter.I want to share a whole thought in praise of Bud Dupree. During our opening four games he looked pretty bad. But he really turned it around. He may not be the next Greg Lloyd/Joey Porter/James Harrison, but he, to borrow a baseball term, was worth at least one win against replacement.Which reminds me, the 1974 draft is not the standard. It was a shocking outlier, never seen before or since. Before draft season begins in earnest let me encourage you to take a look at various draft classes since you?ve been paying attention to football. Not just the Steelers, but all teams. It will remind you what a crapshoot the whole thing is. As I like to say, there are far more busts in the draft than there are in Canton.Here?s a challenge for someone with too much time on their hands. See if you can construct a team of 6th round or later picks that are active that could beat a team of first rounders who are still playing, somewhere. I?ll start. Tom Brady at QB, AB at wide receiver. On the first round team, let?s go with Johnny Manziel (Canada is playing, sort of) and John Ross. See how it works? Crapshoot I tell ya.Never had the least interest in fantasy football. Don?t come @ me.Five years from now we may be terribly glad to have drafted Josh Dobbs or Mason Rudolph. Neither, I suspect Jack Ham Jersey , will end up in the Hall of Fame. One of them, I hope, will win a Lombardi. We have great reason to hope in the future after Big Ben. We shouldn?t automatically assume it will be the 80?s all over again. It may well be the 90?s when we had some excellent teams, led by non- HOF QBs, O?Donnell and Stewart. For all you Tomlin haters out there- if you want a lesson on quarterback coaching malfeasance, see Cowher and Stewart. The Chin destroyed Slash. That man could flat out play.And those of you wondering how I came to have such a beautiful wife, it?s because of something we haven?t experienced in the Jordan Berry era- I out-punted my coverage.The evolution of Run-Pass-Options in the NFL creates a learning curve for Ben Roethlisberger Football is a game which is constantly evolving and changing. Whether it was the introduction to the forward pass, the shotgun offense, the Wildcat formation or the newest buzzword in football circles ?RPOs?.For those who don?t know, RPO stands for Run-Pass-Option, and this is a unique twist on how an offense will run their offense from the line of scrimmage. On any given play, the quarterback will have a choice between a run and pass play, but will choose between the two...sometimes it is a split-second decision.Everyone has to be prepared Jack Lambert Jersey , and everyone has to be on time for this style of offense to work, and for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger ? it is still new.New offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner has implemented more RPOs into the offense than any other coordinator during the Roethlisberger era, and Roethlisberger spoke on Wednesday about how this is still a work-in-progress for him.Roethlisberger spoke about RPOs during his Wednesday media availability.?It seems to be the hot topic in football now. Whether it is the NFL or college sometimes it?s just prudent to try things. You can ask receivers to block guys that come down or you can ask them to run a route. If it?s open, you throw it. It?s a little new for me. We?ve done some of it in the past, but it is something that I have to get used to. I missed an early one to A.B. (Antonio Brown) just understanding how fast certain guys can get there. He gets there a lot quicker than JuJu Smith-Schuster did later, so it?s still going to take time for me to get used to it and perfect it. I am going to work at it though because it can be good, as we saw.? Roethlisberger is trying to get accustomed to RPOs, but does he really like them??I just think it gives you options. It?s one of those things where you can hand the ball off with eight or nine in the box and beat your head against the wall sometimes. Or you can find a way to fake it and throw it to a guy if it?s open. When it works, it?s really good. When it doesn?t, we have to figure something out.?With the weapons the Steelers have on offense, even without Le?Veon Bell, they are more than capable of utilizing RPOs to their advantage. It doesn?t mean it will be a large part of their offense, but history shows us Fichtner likes infusing these plays into his play call sheet on a weekly basis. The Steelers? offense Mike Webster Jersey , like many across the NFL, will take time to fully get clicking. Tony Dungy once said you don?t know what teams are good, or bad, until the month of October. In this instance, the Pittsburgh offense has many areas where they need to improve, and learning RPOs, and the timing of these plays, is certainly a part of the improvement process heading into the Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.As was evident in Week 1 when Roethlisberger hit Smith-Schuster for a huge catch-and-run, RPOs can be effective, but it the entire offense needs to be on the same page.
