Dez dropped it. And by "it" I mean his signature on a one year deal with the 7-1 Saints.

I'm sure the Saints offense will figure out how to get Dez the ball but yeah, catching it is another story.

Just saw that for Ben’s last 16 games, it’s 5,218 yards 39 td’s only 13 picks. Playing very well but under the radar. Needs to keep that pace going because Saints, Chargers, and Patriots are still on the schedule.

The Saints will probably use Dez the way the Patriots use C. Patterson: a specialty player that they know can only do a few things and will only use him in those ways.  Dez is a poor route runner and would probably get lost on those plays where the Saints do a lot of motion to get someone open, but he should be able to make a few plays on a game with they spread it out and he can run a fly pattern or a quick slant where he can catch it and run.

He also makes a good decoy to draw defenders away from better route runners.  The problem in Dallas was, he doesn't like the decoy role because he wants the ball all the time.  He's better in red zone situations when the ball is thrown high towards the back of the endzone.

I don't like the Dez pickup on it's face.  They are HOT, they are on a roll, why disrupt the apple cart?  Is he a game-changer at this point?   Unless it's somehow a message to that dude that planted the cellphone in the endzone...

They are thin at the position. His signing came at the same time Cam Meredith went on IR.

Definitely not that. Michael Thomas is revered as a god in this town and he's only another year or two from the braindead sports media waking up from the coma they've been in sleeping on him and realizing that Julio and Antonio are the only better receivers than him in the league and he might be even money with them by then. Obviously not by body of work, but just judging all three of them at their current (as in current in 2020) skill and production levels.

Seems like the Steelers always have a game like this every year, where they annihilate the crap out of a good team on national TV (Titans last year, Chiefs the year before).  One thing is clear: their offense doesn't miss or need Le'Veon Bell.

Oh, and that pick-6 Cam threw in the first quarter was Dilfer-esque.

Connor left the game early, so as long as he's not hurt - I agree. The best thing for the Steelers at this point would be for Bell to never play as a Steeler again. He's (Bell) has pushed this too far, the team is clicking, Connor is surprisingly good, bringing Bell in and making him the starter makes no sense.

That said - I can totally see Tomlin doing exactly that  :lol

Oh also, did they say on the broadcast last night that Ben threw more TDs than incompletions? That's crazy.

Pre-Week 10 Power Rankings...

I don't think ANY football fan who has been paying attention can take any power rankings that does not include the 49ers in the top 10 seriously.  What a joke.  I'll make sure to refer back to this failure of a ranking after week 17 when the 49ers have won out and taken the NFC west.



























:rollin  Okay, but seriously...

Man, the Steelers looked like SUCH a complete, dominant force last night.  I have not really been following, but if they have been playing this consistently good this season, they are a force to be reckoned with.

The Steelers will still be unpredictable.  They usually are throughout the course any given season.

This just in...Dez Bryant is the Saints Achilles heel.   :lol

There are now reports that Bell will not report at all to the Steelers this year.  That is the best thing for the team, honestly.  With the way the offense is rolling, they don't need Bell to come in with his drama and mess things up.

I'm cool with the loss of Bryant since the Saints are still an absolute force without him. I would've liked to have gotten to see what he could've added to our offense but every Saints fan also had at least about 5-10% worrying in the back of their minds about the potential for him to throw off team chemistry. The front office did the right thing signing him for $600k so it was basically as low risk as humanly possible since I think that's either the league minimum for someone as tenured as him or very close to it.

I assume he's probably gone the second he becomes a free agent anyway so this was more than likely a one-year loaner that just ended prematurely.

Todd Bowles can’t survive this week. I’ve been a defender of his since the beginning of his stint with the Jets because they’ve been rebuilding but you still have to field a competitive team, and this group of guys simply isn’t playing hard for him.

That’s how it goes with the Jets. It happened with Rex, Mangini, and Herm as well. A year or two of moderate success in the beginning followed by several years of mediocrity and excuses.
