Thoughts on your 2018 Pittsburgh Steelers Offseason

Postby Steelers69 on Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:57 pm

Started a thread so we can talk everything Steelers in the offseason since its going to be a LONG off season since I am done watching Pirates, 1st thing up will be what do they do with Bell and what they do with Mike Mitchell and who do they bring in during free agency.

I'll start it off and hope they move on from Bell and put that money in the defense because they just freed up 14 million dollars in restructuring of contracts and I hate to say that is going to go toward Bell and not the defense. Their is a saying about Rb's are a dime a dozen and you can replace him with a two head monster like Philly did or find some young kid out of college what Kansas City and New Orleans did in finding little guys from small schools.

Even if we move on from Bell we can still have a high powerful offense and put that money we don't use to resign him toward fixing all the holes in our defense and maybe use every pick on the defense in the draft. Chris Long will be a free agent and he could be a good guy to go after because he was on 2 one year contracts last two years one in New England and last year in Philly and has won back to back SB.

We can't be spending 30% of our cap on Ben, Brown and Bell because we need help on defense and defense is what wins SB

I agree. Signing Bell or any running back to a multi year 8 figure deal is a HUGE mistake for this team. Unfortunately all signs point toward that’s what they are going to do.

Le’Veon Bell, Steelers
Dion Lewis, Patriots
Jerick McKinnon, Vikings

Carlos Hyde, 49ers
Isaiah Crowell, Browns
Orleans Darkwa, Giants
Rex Burkhead, Patiots
Damien Williams, Seahawks
LeGarrette Blount, Eagles

-- Wed 14 Feb, 2018 8:45 am --

This is a list of RBs who’s contract has run out. You can probably add Demarco Murray and Adrian Peterson to this list also.
Almost all of them at 1/4th of Bells salary or less.

I'm not saying to sign Bell long-term or not -
but you could probably grab 4 of those backs and their total production passing and catching wouldn't match Bell's production

Big deal what did we get for that production? We could put that money to better use on the defense. As long as you have Ben and AB and JuJu I think we could put up 20 points a game if the defense can do their job and hold a team under 17 points a game.

I for one would take Blount back in a heart beat because that dude is a beast and give me Dion Lewis for my 2nd guy, but we all know that Blount wouldn't come back here and play for Tomlin. Plus Tomlin doesn't know how to use to back system, all he knows is running one guys tires off. Hell he had Williams for 2 years and wouldn't use him after Bell's suspension and all Williams did was lead the league in rushing the 1st 4 games while Bell was suspended.

You already know what Bell will bring to the locker room CANCER and his me 1st attitude and you will have to worry about him smoking pot again and he is proned to injuries. So let him go to another team and see how great he will be with out the great offensive line he has here and watch how is numbers DROP.

It’s just a matter of how much do you want to pay someone for maybe more production. Bell is a good back. He has holes in his game however. Absolutely sucks in short yardage and he isn’t anywhere near a burner. And really more importantly 14 Mil a year is crazy for a position that usually gets hurt. So when he goes down (and he will) we will lose $14 mil of production. Just too much for that position, but Tomlins been Bells personal promoter since day one when a lot of people said he should have taken Eddie Lacy, which in Tomlins credit he got right. We get it Mike...you picked the right back.lol
And on top of that word is he’s one positive test from a suspension. To get to that point you need to fail a number of tests.

How much impact will the signing of Tom Bradley as defensive backs coach have? Carnell Lake was a good D-back when he played, but not sure he set the world on fire during his tenure as a coach of the secondary. Bradley's assignment could be a good sign of things to come for the defense.

I like that signing as well but it still comes down to the personnel and Butler and as of right now I have zero confidence in Butler and I'm still stunted that Butler wasn't fired at the end of the season

I like the Bradley signing too. The big reason is he is a big believer basic fundementals and teaching proper techniques.

As for Bell, he had over 1900 yards from line o scrimmage but is it worth $14m a year?? I agree with stiller that the money could be used more productively on the other side of the ball. Inside LB, Safety, Corner, another OLB etc. Maybe even to fill in some O line back up. Injuries do happen.

Here's another reason to not give Bell big money. On the walk thru day before the biggest game of the year....he doesn't show for most of it. On the DAY OF the biggest game of the year....he shows up late to Heinz Field.
I go back to what would the best coach in football do(Billicheck). There is no way in hell he would sign this guy long term. He wouldn't even sign him to a franchise tag. You are rewarding this crap with more money. But that's the Tomlin way I guess. Makes zero sense to me............but what do I know.

I kind of like the Bradley signing also. I like it in terms of making any change on the defensive side can't be worse.

Belicheck just showed what he would do if a star player steps out of line, he BENCHED his best corner for the SB and it cost him the win, and the other thing about Bill and New England they don't sign guys to huge contracts and they usually trade their guys before their rookie contracts are up.

They also usually draft guys from small schools and pick up guys on the free agent market from other teams and make them stars in New England, I'll be amazed if they bring back Dion Lewis because Lewis want's paid like Blount did last year and they wanted Blount to take less to stay in New England, but they will let Lewis walk and either find a replacement in the draft or sign some free agent who will produce in New England.

do any of you seriously believe he won't be back next year...running back by committee is fine..if you have a committee and 3 roster spots to spare for that group...
you also create another very big need position to fill...
I'd be really surprised if he's not back next year....either tagged or signed...
you might not like his "attitude" or the possibility he'll be a cancer...
he produces...and that is the bottom line...

Over 3/4 of the league does the running back by committee and take up the 3 roster spots, all you have to do is look at the final 8 teams in the playoffs all except Pittsburgh had a RB by committee and both the SB teams ended up with the committee. The reason you can have 3 guys on the roster is because you have extra money instead of one guy making 15 million you can have 4 or 5 guys at smaller contracts.

But I agree the Steelers and Tomlin are that dumb and will resign Bell and we will here how on paper every year how we are the most high power offense in the league and behind New England have the best odds at getting to the SB. I will use an Ex Steelers great saying Lee Flowers called Baltimore Paper Champions. Thats what we will be known as Paper Champions because we won't win any real championships
