    Russ is an upgrade to Kenny, no question.

    I was hoping they would stick with the hometown kid out of loyalty. I think Russ was a bad fit in Denver, but I suspect Kenny is a bad fit anywhere.

    He doesn't exactly fit the prototype for a Pittsburgh Steeler, but he does still have plenty of offseason time to get all roided up and maybe hit up an exhibition game somewhere to trip someone from the sidelines.
    I believe there is a special place in hell for people that buy entities that others "root for" and treat it like any other regular business from a profit/loss standpoint.

    I agree with this but you also said with this signing that they need to draft a qb in 2025, if not 2024.

    Its the Steelers... Season Starts... Some good stuff happens... Some bad stuff happens... At the end of the day they're usually on the positive side of the W/L record.

He still throws a nice deep ball his issue though is he holds onto it a bit long which generates some bad sacks.

    It's a good signing when you consider the cost...
    For this to work Pittsburgh needs to really invest in the offensive line. They got Broderick Jones last year and this year is a good draft for OL with a couple of centers available late first round.

    He is an upgrade over Pickett. As long as he isn't trying to be "the guy" and just takes care of the ball and let's the defense do it's thing it could pay off. He could easily be this years Baker Mayfield.

    Steelers reportedly will sign former Raven ILB Patrick Queen to a 3-year/41 million dollar contract. That's another solid signing, and will allow Pittsburgh to focus on other positions of need in the draft (Center, CB, OT, DL).

    They just traded Diontae Johnson to Carolina for basically a pick swap. Moving from 240 to 178.

    It was probably a 50/50 flip whether Johnson would make it to the regular season; has both contract and behavioral issues that popped up. Along with the 6th-for-7th round pick swap, the Steelers received CB Donte Jackson. I don't know a ton about Jackson, other than he suffered an achilles injury a couple years ago. He did start 16 games for Carolina last year, so that might be the CB move we've been waiting for. Jackson is a bit on the expensive side, it looks like, so who knows how that plays out. Now I need to move up WR as a draft need I guess.

    Uncharacteristically active offseason for the Steelers- sign a QB and a Punter, then the deal for a CB.

    Steelers just sent Pickett to the Eagles in a pick swap.

    He asked to be traded when they signed Russ.

    If they can win with Mitch and Pickett they sure can with Wilson. Since that 1989 season when they started 0-2 and got out scored 10-92 and still made the playoffs with the most negative point differential and yardage difference imaginable. They put the ugly in winning ugly when their offense is down prehistoric and terrible. They will win with a defense and letting other teams F themselves. Like the 2022 opener in Cincinnati or the first Baltimore game last year.

    Russ is basically going to be Ryan Tannehill in Smith's offense. Do enough not to lose.

    That said, hes on a prove it deal and it kinda makes you wonder if the Steelers could look at a QB (Bo Nix) first round.

    Re: Any Other Steelers Fans On Here?

    Well, this is one interesting offseason. Not a big fan of Fields if he were coming in as the starter, and we'll have to see how his contract plays out because his fifth year option is untenable (25+ million). We'll now on or by May 2nd. But, for now, he's an affordable backup for a 6th rounder that's unlikely to turn into a fourth unless Wilson gets hurt for an extended period of time.

    As for Pickett...what a Milo that guy turned out to be. First, the refusal to suit up for the Seahawks game last year. Then to demand a trade after you've shown nothing but glimpses of promise while you're in a situation where you may only have to be the #2 for a year (or less, potentially) while learning from a vet QB like Wilson? That's beyond delusional. He should have been more careful with what he wished for, because if he thinks that he's going to get more opportunity to play with Jalen Hurts starting in front of him, he's nuts.

    “ Although Fields' salary this year is $3.233 million, they'll have to decide by May 2 whether to exercise his fifth-year option to the tune of $25.664 million. “
