SCB Steelers’ Quick Hitters: The “No Guarantees” Edition

TGIF Steelers’ Faithful!

With the Steelers wrapping up their third day of OTAs yesterday I’m always stunned by some of the declarations and guarantees people make. The Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette in his weekly chat said James Conner will be the back up running back. First of all, Conner hasn’t even participated yet with the veterans. He’s still dealing with a hamstring issue he had during rookie camp. Furthermore, Conner has to prove he’s the number two. Knile Davis and Fitz Toussaint aren’t just going to give it to him.

Another guarantee I saw a lot following the draft was that third round pick Cam Sutton would play the slot. For all I know he still may end up there but so far in OTAs? He’s been on the outside. The Steelers would love nothing more than for him to take that spot from Ross Cockrell who just doesn’t play man well.

I realize that Martavis Bryant has been out of football for a year but I don’t understand why people still can’t say or type his name correctly. It’s not that difficult.

Tweet of the Day… Couldn’t agree more Joe!

Huge congrats to the Pens who defeated the Sens in seven games last night in DRAMATIC fashion winning 3-2 in double overtime. There are lots of people calling in sick today in the burgh!

Have some changes coming to the SCB website. Very excited about them and I hope you find them exciting too!

Let the record show that on Episode 19 of the SCB Podcast Chris made the first of what I can only imagine will be many rips on the Bengals and Joe Mixon.

The Steelers are going to release or trade one or two pretty darn good receivers at some point in this season. AB is AB, if Martavis stays on the straight and narrow he’s the #2 and JuJu isn’t going anywhere and I don’t think Eli Rogers is either. That’s four. What do you do with Sammie Coates or Darrius Heyward-Bey or Demarcus Ayers or Justin Hunter? See what I mean???

Have a great holiday weekend Steeler Nation!
