Where to you rank Ben among the current QBs?
Gerry Dulac
12:57
I put him in the top 5, if not top 3.
RR

Has anyone ever asked Tomlin why his clock management sucks so bad?
Gerry Dulac
12:58
Not in those words, but he is asked about it almost weekly. Though the person always asking is no longer around

Why do Steelers "fans" act like last season was such a failure anll all our players and coaches inadequate? I live in Detroit now and, believe me, a lot of teams would love to be anywhere close to the Steelers.
Gerry Dulac
12:59
Because there are naysayers everywhere
It won't be a home game.
I don't think Ben's deal has anything to do with it. But yes

In your opinion whats the lineup that gives the secondary the highest ceiling. (Outside CBs and slot, safeties seems set).
Gerry Dulac
1:01
Watt at ROLB, Burns and Brian Allen at CB, Sutton in the slot. That's the highest ceiling. Doesn't mean it will play out that way.
Norm

And would you care to predict the secondary's grade for next year?
Gerry Dulac
1:01
It depends, but I'll still say C
DCSteel
1:02
Seen anything promising from new safety stafford? Is he a guy that can masquerade as a nickel/dime "linebacker" in passing downs?
Gerry Dulac
1:02
I'll wait till training camp to evaluate.

Hi GD, What RBs make the team this year?  Thanks
Gerry Dulac
1:03
Bell, K. Davis, Conner, Nix
Jamie
1:05
Will bell be in Latrobe for the start of camp??
Gerry Dulac
1:06
Yes. I expect him to be there.

Do yoy think AB will return all punts or could Sutton/Ayers get chances with AB just handling the deep ones that call for some experience like Randle El did ABs firsr year
Gerry Dulac
1:07
That's always a possibility but Mike Tomlin talks about that every year and ends up letting AB handle all punts.

I've seen a comment form one of your colleagues that Goldson is in jeopardy of not making the 53....do you share that assessment?
Gerry Dulac
1:09
Absolutely he's in jeopardy. He has to show his skills -- and his speed -- haven't eroded after two years of not playing. Carnell Lake said Golson will have to make the final roster on special teams, which should tell you what they think of him purely as a DB

Will an OLB lead the team in sacks or do expect Heyward and Tuitt to lead the charge?
Gerry Dulac
1:09
I still expect Cam and Tuitt to lead the team, but keep an eye on TJ Watt.
RR
1:09
Why is pointing out obvious flaws in the coaching make someone a naysayer?  I mean, pee wee coaches understand clock management.
Gerry Dulac
1:10
Really? I think you grossly misunderstand what is entailed. Next you'll tell me a third-grader could do it.
Jamie
1:10
Do you see Justin hunter making the team and having any impact?
Gerry Dulac
1:11
I think he will be in a fight to get that final spot. I don't know, I have to see him on the field in pads in a game to see what he has.
Marco
1:13
Has anyone heard anything about deangelo?
Gerry Dulac
1:14
No, nor will you. Ship has sailed here.
Jud
1:14
Do you think Mitchell realizes he turns off a lot of fans with his after 10 yard tackle antics?
Gerry Dulac
1:14
I don't. And I couldn't agree more. Congrats -- that was my favorite question of the day.
Ryno
1:14
Are you expecting the front four to get significantly more pressure on the quarterback this season than last?
Gerry Dulac
1:15
Well, they only use three D-lineman, not four, but they better get more pressure. All those people who want to criticize the secondary need to realize their deficiencies are directly attributed a lack of pressure.
Jud
1:15
YEAH!  Do I win anything?  NO!
Gerry Dulac
1:16
Pat on the back.
atown jason
1:16
Is this Mitchells last year here without a renegotiation? I remember when he signed people thought he wouldnt complete his contract
Gerry Dulac
1:16
He's gotten much better. Don't forget, he spent a lot of his first year trying to cover up for Polamalul.
Jamie
1:16
Do you see Dobbs beating out landry?
Gerry Dulac
1:17
Nope. Not at all.
