Not that i put much weight on a pro bowl selection, i must admit that I thought for certain that Shazier was a lock to make it.

I'm not sure if you guys have seen/read this article, so i'll post the link below:
Within the article, ProFootball Focus lists the top 16 worst picks in the 2016 draft. I find it interesting that Artie Burns (#6) and Sean Davis (#10) are on the list, as well as a few other rookies having very good seasons (Eli Apple, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones, Derrick Henry, etc.).
I know the season and the careers of these players are still young, but in my opinion, PFF so far has missed on at least 6 of the 16.
Best We Could Achieve
Technically, we still have a long shot at the number 2 seed. It would require us to win out and both KC and Oak lose 2 of their 3 final games. KC has Tenn, Den, and @ SD while Oak has @ SD, Indy, and @ Den.
Not impossible odds, but still quite a long shot.
NE did us an obvious favor by beating the Purple Browns. It still likely comes down to Christmas Day though.
We win the division if we win 2 of our final 3 as long as one of the wins is against B'more.
If we lose to the Bengals and they beat the Eagles, virtually nothing changes. So, no jumping off buildings if we lose to a team that would love nothing more than to beat us. ;-) The hatred is real and they will give everything. I am more concerned about coming out of the game healthy than winning.
If we win and B'more wins, pretty much the same thing.
If we win and B'more loses to the Eagles, the division is all but ours. We could lose on Christmas and still only...
The Depot has an article about Bell as an MVP candidate, which got me thinking.
Just curious. What RB from the present or past is the best comparison for Bell? I have seen some compare him to Sanders, but I think it is superficial at best. I am not sure I have ever seen that combination of size, power, patience, blocking, catching.
I can't really think of one I am comfortable with.
The first matchup between these two, the best 2 QBs from an epic 2004 draft class, was a 33-30 thriller that was the steelers 13th consecutive win with a rookie Ben Roethlisberger.
Players in that game included Jerome Bettis, Antwan Randle El (who threw a TD to Veron Haynes), Tiki Barber, Jeremy Shockey, and Willie Ponder.
Fast forward a few years, the steelers with their stifling 2008 defense fell to the giants 21-14 after holding the giants to 4 FGs, james harrison had to fill in at long snapper and snapped the ball over the head of the punter and out of the back of an endzone for a safety.
And in 2012 the steelers pulled out a 24-20 victory over the giants, including a 51 yard catch and run TD from Mike Wallace in the 4th quarter.
Now in 2016, both QBs in their 13th season, both on their way to the hall of fame, both multiple superbowl winners will square off again with the steelers having a 2-1 advantage in the series. Giants may be playing a bit over the heads at 8-3 and...
Got to say watching L Timmons play a little more OLB in the last two games has impressed me with his pass rush and got me wondering.
Do you think there is any mileage or possibility that he moves to OLB permantly and then move J Jones or Bud Dupree to ILB ?
I prefer Timmons pass rush to both Duprees and Jones and don't think Timmons playing OLB has resulted in us getting a lot more sacks and pressure in the last two games than we have had for most the rest of the year with Jones/Dupree on the outside.
OLLB - Timmons
ILLB - Jones
IRLB - Shaz
ORLB - Harrison/Moats
