I agree, Brown should not be sitting. Tomlin is scared of his vets like Randle El. That part is obvious.
I don't think he is scared of his vets, he just thinks they won't make the mistakes younger guys tend to do. That being said I would love to see Brown and sanders dressed.
James Harrison - "Right now, you know, some people may want to jump on the Steelers bandwagon.
Don't do that. We don't need you. We didn't need you at the beginning, we don't need you now."
I think both Brown and Sanders have a very bright future with this team and Tomlin is still evaluating both men. ARE and Battle should be slowly phased to the bench as the season progresses to allow the younger guys their time.
Have Terrible Towel, Will Travel.
The big problem for both rookies have been the absence of Ben. While ARE is a bad receiver, he is a vet who knows hardly makes any mistakes. He is not flashy, he does not have great hands etc. etc. but he does not cause the team turnovers etc. like rookies will do from time to time. I am pretty sure, that had Ben been under center from week one, both Sanders and Brown would have seen much more playing time.
However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
I really want to see the rookies play but ya'll cannot deny that ARE had a pretty good game vs. the Ravens. He isn't flashy (except for that awesome catch early on) but he does what is asked of him. I do not like him returning kicks or punts because he doesn't have the ability to score. Why not have a threat in there at all times? I seem to remember that working pretty damn well for our upcoming opponent last year
If we get up by 20 at half then expect to see Sanders get some looks in the second half. If it is close then I doubt he will see the field much in the 2nd half, and he will not be targeted unless he is WIDE open.
BTW notice at 2:21 in this video - he has some Hines blocking ability!
3 burners on the field at once is going to OPEN up the passing game, last year we had wallace and holmes, but now we have an extra.
Always have and always will love Manny Sanders... he has great potential. Im excited for this guy/
