  • Accuracy matters and Trask has it

  • I'm all in on Kyle Trask

  • Davis Mills pls

  • let me save you five minutes. NO.

  • A .04 share? The worst show on TV lmao!

  • Steelers should trade for Gardner Minshew

    • @Danny Jones He was the only good player on an extremely bad team.He works hard. It costs almost nothing. A pick from the first round would not be necessary for the exchange. Any other QB the Steelers could pick would be at greater risk.

    • Naw we don't want him we need a franchise player he was a nice story but he's not a franchise player

  • Top qbs will be drafted right off.slim pickings at 24.kyle trask?? Monds??

  • No!

  • No no no..... the 1st 3 picks need to be off. Linemen. The ONLY exception should be najee harris if still there in 1st round. A derrick henry clone.

    • @Danny Jones my point is we HAVE to have 3 lineman in the draft regardless. If najee not available then at very least 1rd, 3rd, and 1st 4th round picks. That gives 2nd round and the 2nd 4th round and on for others. Offensive line was abysmal last year and we've lost 3 of those now. Without the line not even tom Brady with the best weapons could score more than 14 pts a game and I'll bet that

    • We have other needs you don't draft 3 straight lineman we need a corner back a line backer a running back I'm glad your not a GM I wouldn't draft 3 straight lineman when you have other needs to address

  • Answer: I don’t know

  • No they got Dwayne Haskins

  • I hope not. Just wait till 2022 for spencer rattler, (kedon slovis), and Desmond ridder. Sam howell will be #1 qb unless somebody jumps him.

    • @Danny Jones thats not long. We got big ben, he gone play this year. Them option are good.

    • We shouldn't wait that long

  • Justin Herbert 30-10, young star. Ben Roethlisberger 33-10, washed up. If you listen to espn for analysis you’re probably watching CNN too.

  • Yes; QB Jamie Newman will be Available ...

  • The sched is brutal.for Steelers. If at midway point of season theyre under 500 i think Ben gets benched and they see what they got in Haskins and Rudolph.theyre not in SB convo with Ben so this season is just kinda a wash anyway.

    • This season isn't a wash as steelers fans we never think like that no matter who we play against the steelers as a team and organization never just throw away seasons

    • I don't think so

  • O-line & RB, thats what they need...

    • I'm not going o line in the first round we have defensive needs we lost Hilton and and Nelson this year we need corner back line backer running back etc

  • Steelers don’t need a QB .they have other needs

    • @Danny Jones there’s always free agency And Rudolph is better then Haskins he did good vs the browns this year meanwhile Haskins got cut for hanging out at strip clubs

    • Actually behind Ben who we got Haskins Rudolph 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣we definitely need one

  • Steeler are the best

  • Watch Jamie Newman to the Steelers just wait😌

  • The heady cappelletti concurrently divide because insect steadily twist towards a crabby quicksand. deeply, black jewel

  • Not much talk about Mond? Simms has him as his 4th rated QB

  • They act like most of the QBs wont be out of a job in 5 years not everyone is gonna be a starting qb in each draft

  • They need a successor to learn from big ben before he gets hurt i doubt any rookie will take his place while he's healthy he's a top 5 qb able to be really good with goof offs around him and no run game 11-0 start

    • There is one thing about this..BEN DOES NOT MENTOR, and if you don't believe me look at how he acted when they drafted Mason Rudolph.

    • Exactly

  • don't be surprised if the steelers wind up with ian book on their roster for next season(now everyone laugh but nobody can definitely say that he can't be a serviceable nfl starter)....his pro day numbers were better than baker mayfield in every measurable category(now i'm not saying he's better than baker) so that has to be more proof that he can be serviceable to solid as an nfl qb....i couldn't find one "so-called expert" who was predicting what dak prescott would be in the nfl or where or when he might be drafted...book just completed his college career with the most wins in nd's history and did so with mostly possession receiver type of talent(he did have boykin for one season and claypool for a couple but their numbers weren't great and usually opposing teams schemed to take them away and book was able to move the ball and win utilizing 2nd/3rd options) ....the steelers don't need to address the qb situation this year and if needed can either live with ben or someone for 2022 but the next long term qb for the steelers might end up being D.J. Uiagalelei, depending on how bad the steelers are or how good d.j. is projecting by the time 2023 rolls around.....as a steeler fan i would love to see as a stop gap or short term answer be ryan fitzmagic, he just seems like a steeler to me and i respect what he has been through and the ability to hang around(only 4 months younger than ben but has played in 60 some less games, so he's basically like 4 football life years younger) and be productive.....if every qb was told they were guaranteed to have the career fitz has had would they take without knowing what the future was going to be(not everyone can be tom brady)

  • Oh good lord Y’all Steelers fans whiling in these comments lol

  • I honestly don’t understand the separation between Mac Jones & Kyle Trask

    • @David Kantor true lol maybe not depending on what situation they land In

    • There is noine - they will both be average NFL QBs with no rings to show

  • I mean I’d focus on areas of need. They have Haskins, he was one of the top 3 QB’s in 2019 and still has a chance to prove his worth. They should look for another QB in 5th-6th round.

  • I agree with Spears whole heartedly

  • Kyle Trask & Kellen Mond gone be sleeper QB’s in the draft

    • They should get Mond

    • @Almasi Billings so joe burrow was throwing to Justin Jefferson jamar chase and terrace Marshall

    • @chummymacaroni how when he was throwing the ball the Kyle pitts all his career and pitts is a top 10 pick you can’t not recognize that

    • Mond yes but trask is garbage

  • No.

  • Ben is a liability to this Steelers offense time to move on it makes no sense to keep him with that much of a salary he's not a DeShaun Watson or Russell Wilson . A Quarterback of those 2 there will win a couple of championship hands down but the organization will not pull the trigger on that happening so HELLO CLEVELAND BROWN your up it's your turn.

  • Haskins will be under center by game 4

    • @Richard McKinney hahahaha.... either you're related mason or just flat out 🏳️‍🌈 or have an unhealthy obsession for the guy. Whatever the case, in 2019 he had an int in each game, he struggles in a pro style offense and the Steelers have pretty simple offense, and he was so bad that yr, that he got benched for 🦆 hodges..... you're obviously a delusional moron... lmao 🤣

    • @Kent you don't know squat. Mason has the best and most accurate arm of the backups, but I know that you're not rational enough to see that. And you are judging Mason on one and one halve games where he did poorly, but please keep.being this idiot.

    • @Richard McKinney the Steelers will have 4 qbs, someone is leaving and you know it's mason. I don't know why the heck we resigned ben

    • @Kent lol you wish. More then likely Haskins is the one that is gone.

    • @Richard McKinney dobbs just got resigned.....mason is gone

  • Know when 2 retire. Take the biggest one. Can see over o.f. line.

  • They could try for kellen mond assuming he falls low enough or trade for no. 4 but I don’t think it will happen

  • I feel like they can develop Dwayne Haskins better than Washington, I think yall forgot they signed him. He is only 23 and if anything they'll draft someone next year not this year

  • Bruh the Steelers started 11-0 with Big Ben so many dropped passes injury to the defense no run game bad play calls and we gonna say they need a qb rn lmao

    • @Yaron Enciu Cam Newton had a ton of circumstances out of his control ruin his last season. There’s a chance he looks good this year(I’m an optimistic pats fan). Ben however, is only getting older and looks like drew Brees last year. A good qb that simply can’t throw a good ball 20 yards down field. With good teams around them they’ll go to the playoffs but have 0 chance at title contention

    • @Prestige V61 he’s not done at all he has a good 2 years left in him If he was done he would be playing like Cam Newton

    • @Yaron Enciu Nope, qb is a problem. He’s still a good qb but he’s old and his arm is gone. You cannot make a deep playoff run with him behind center

    • @Injeian25 what was he exactly supposed to do with butter finger wrs bad o line and an offensive coordinator who calls slants 24/7 Also he never called running plays I just described to u all the problems we got on offense so just let they sink into ur head for a moment

    • Bruh thank you!! This is exactly what fans need to know the qb isn’t the problem so it’s great that I finally found a person who would actually say the truth Respects!

  • If they can't find a viable rookie in rd 2-3 then they might just bring in Bridgewater(contract thru 2023 season) from Carolina - Big Ben's not playing past 2021, Bridgewater would be a "safe" bridge(no pun intended) QB while they evaluate the next 2yrs of QBs. Better to sit the rookie for most of the 1st season and bring him in for cakewalk games towards the end than to toss him head-first into the woodchipper.

  • Trade big ben

  • Trask and Mond are my two picks of the day 2+ prospects. Both have played some true competition in college and both look ready. Maybe not day one starters but definitely the two I'll bet to have lengthy NFL careers.

  • If they don’t get najee idk what I’ll do

  • Duck had potential but Ben wanted him gone. That's why Rudolph is still there. He sucks so much Ben isn't bothered by it. Ben should have retired, the Steelers should have signed Fitzpatrick for 1yr and look in the draft or even get Duck back

  • Yes they do need a successor for ben roethlisberger

  • They should Draft Kyle Trask to trade up in the early second and get Trask has Big Ben play this season then have a QB Competition next year in camp HASSKINS VS TRASK

  • Lmao we not drafting a QB, it’ll be next year.

    • @Danny Jones we would be foolish to get one this year

    • @Danny Jones need another CB bc we don’t have the depth

    • @Danny Jones we have bigger needs and other QBs on the roster that need to be evaluated and compete. We need Oline, LB, and RB first before a QB.

    • We would be foolish not to get one

  • Dwayne Haskins =trask. Haskins put up huge numbers in college playing in the pocket with great skill players and got exposed in the nfl

    • Idk if Haskins got a fair shot though neither Gruden or Rivera wanted him from the start and the offense doesn’t have any real talent. You even had Rivera come out this off-season and say that he feels they need to get more talent before going all out on a QB in the draft which if kinda admitting Haskins never had a chance.

  • They literally got Haskins

    • @Endless jah listen I just don’t think Haskins is the answer Let him start you will know why I doubt him

    • @Yaron Enciu keep doubting bud

    • @Endless jah We doubt him for a reason

    • Haskins is overhyped he did so bad the entire time he was in the NFL What makes you think he will be a franchise qb exactly?

    • 🚮🚮🚮🚮🚮

  • Spencer rattler has way higher potential than Kyle trask

  • Just wanted to stop by and say this wouldn’t be a discussion if they had just taken Jalen Hurts last draft. Thanks to the Steelers for protecting Ben’s ego and missing out on probably one of the best QBs for the next decade.

    • I'd rather have Claypool nice try thought

    • @Mo Fuggar🙆🏻‍♂️🤣

    • This comment is on a whole new level of stupidity lol

    • In Jalen Hurts?

  • No

  • Finally some Kyle Trask recognition

    • Exactly he was throwing the ball to pitts and he’s a top 10 pick idk why everyone is overlooking that

  • Kyle Trash

  • You don’t know that look at mac Jones, joe burrow, Kyler Murray, Zach Wilson, baker mayfield, Lamar, etc and how their draft stock grew tremendously

    • Kinda. I mean Kyler, Lamar and Joey B look to be the real deal. Baker has become a real starter. Mac and Zach, I think Mac has bust written on him. Zach could be the real deal too. Hard to tell. But either way they are on the top teams or have the gifts that just wow execs

  • Ben was not the problem, but is certainly not the answer...our o line, runnerbacks, cornerbacks and linebackers are going to be the positions that are going to be exploited by the other teams, and with a new offensive coordinator we have a offense we dont know actually works!

  • Running back period then oline and qb or middle linebacker

    • We need corner backs we lost two of our starting corners

  • Big Ben's is not wash

  • Big Ben is finished...but the Steelers won’t draft his successor this year

  • Steelers

  • Roethlisberger is becoming underrated 33 tds and 10 ints is not washed His WR core dropped literally every pass No running game and o line wasn’t great And finally the Steelers offensive coordinator called the worst plays possible Ben is carrying the offense on his back a new qb is not the answer until he retires

    • @Gabe Mendoza at times juju and Connor can come up in clutch but I agree A trio like Ben Bell and Brown is the real deal If we would have had a defense tho we would have won 2-3 Super Bowls by now

    • @Yaron Enciu He does have good pocket presence, I agree. And I knew guys like James Connor and Ju-Ju weren't anything like they had before. Those guys aren't game-changing players like Brown and Bell were during their time in Pittsburgh.

    • @Gabe Mendoza Ben has great awareness but like I said before he carried the offense on his back from players to offensive coaches If Ben gets help he will be fine and he had that help when the Steelers went 10-0 After the 2nd ravens game everything fell apart Offense fell apart quickly Defense fell apart slower

    • @Yaron Enciu The only downside is that arm strength tends to go down the older you are. Brandy's has, but Tampa did it right by working to the other strengths he has, like making the right throws. More coaches should take note of it. It's not really about the type of throws you make, but how well you see the field to hit your receivers. You don't need a cannon for an arm, you need good awareness more than anything else.

    • @Gabe Mendoza Exactly people need to understand that just because of their age doesn’t mean they are bad Take Brady as an example and he’s like 45 I think

  • Steelers should have drafted Big Ben's successor last season. At this point they'll have to take what they can get

    • @Danny Jones I'd take him too. But I think Harris is a tad bit more special but they're both special honestly.

    • @Brennen Jones I'll take the guy from Clemson

    • @Brennen Jones I'd Rather have Travis over Harris or draft a defensive player maybe a corner back

    • Should have your completely correct

    • @Kira Capalot Still took advantage of what was given to him. Browns shouldn't have kept it that close after all those turnovers. The final score should have been 55 - 7.

  • This QB class looks good

    • @Danny Jones our running back just signed with the cardinals so that’s probable cause to why we need a running back On defense we really only need lb and corners and only a few o line players The Steelers did a mock draft today and it looks reasonable

    • @Yaron Enciu we need some defensive player's why pick a running back when you have zero offensive line? Unless you build your line up a running back is useless

    • @Ryan Irwin- Diehl Steelers need a running back I don’t care what anyone tells me but they need a running back

    • But the Steelers pick at 24, it would cost too much

  • big ben needs to retire. jesus

  • If they’re smart yes they will. Ben is so old and out of shape. Ugh

  • 17th comment go steelers

  • Shouldve got Cam Newton

    • We good

    • No thanks.

    • Cam threw 8tds to 10ints last season Big Ben threw 33tds to 10 ints last season Pretty sure Tomlins gonna stick with Ben right now lol

  • It’s Mason Rudolph

  • The Steelers need to pretend they are taking Ben out for ice cream then drop him off at a retirement home instead.

    • @nahor88 The draft my friend look to the draft. Y’all not winning with what you have so may as well. I was trying to help you out dummy but you can hop in traffic too with that response 😂

    • @Dats a paddlin And the team has no QB... you realize how dumb you sound? LOL

    • @nahor88 Take them too and drop them off in moving traffic.

    • And use Dwayne Haskins or Mason Rudolph? No thanks...

    • 😂😂😂

  • no i don’t like this idea at all my steelers have atm 4 qbs dobbs rudolph ben and haskins why get another guy who would most likely end up being like trask that’s so stupid instead let’s work on our secondary which recently got worse build that line up and actually see what our last year rookies can do with a line so why get another running back for the same issue

    • @Danny Jones thats next years top 4 unless some suprisse players come, or these guys slack off. We will move up. We cant get trevor Lawrence, Fields, or lance but maybe mac. Which could be whoever will be 4th. We gone move up for the guy we want. I think it will be out of kedon slovis or Spencer rattler.

    • @Jump Street24 we probably won't even be high enough in the draft to get those players

    • I Lost brain cells reading this we have other needs on our team like we definitely need a corner back line backer running back and an offensive lineman but make no mistake we need a quarterback I don't trust Haskins or Rudolph

    • Just wait till 2022 and pick from kedon slovis, Spencer rattler, and Desmond Ridder. Sam powell will qb #1 next year, unless somebody jumps him.

    • Fr. I think Dobbs a free agent rn though but even with him gone, Ben, Rudolph, and Haskins is enough

  • Answer yes

  • Super

  • Let’s go moreee football we on a roll today and stop disrespecting Dwayne haskin he deserves a second chance. We only need a running back and some offense of lineman

    • Yes we need running back. Last year running by committee but who is available. Also Haskins is now in a winning culture with a real QB who he can learn from and a winning coach

    • @A J You are right then we need running game and strong O line

    • @Kağan Demir claypool is the height as mean joe green just less weight they don’t call him a transformer for nothing deonte johnson is a stud just have to catch that ball

    • @Jeffrey Abbey Haskins did it to himself though hold him accountable. Also no guarantee Darnold is a starter ever again. Panthers could easily draft someone.

    • All this praise for Haskins is why front office’s are starting to ignore the outrage mob lol.

  • Jesus. Loves U

  • rothlisburger is holding this team back.

    • O line No Running Game Bad Play Calling Positive COVID-19 Tests and Injures on Defense Butterfinger WR core Everything I just listed is what held back the team

    • And

    • Our play calling lack of running game held our team back

    • Wrong

  • Ben rapensburger is washed the Steelers lose half they defense the Steelers will miss the playoffs this is the browns and ravens division

    • @Luis Alvarado 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • 🧢 we beat y'all twice last year the Brown's haven't beaten us in years and they finally got lucky and won a game in Pittsburgh stop smoking crack if you think the ravens our browns own our division

    • Clowns and Ratbirds aint winning the North, lol, Blitzburg is......

    • Mmmk

    • It's the Bengals division

  • You will be SUPER RICH in MAY 2021 like this if you agree 👍💥👍💥👍👍👍💥💥💥👍👍💥👍💥👍👍👍💥👍👍👍💥👍👍💥👍👍👍💥💥👍💥👍💥💥💥👍
