Who will be the biggest "surprise" cut from the Steelers to get to 53?
Gerry Dulac
11:26
Maybe DHB. Toussaint? Gay?
Quinn
11:26
Do you think Bell is the best RB in the game? What about AB?
Gerry Dulac
11:26
Yes I do. Can do it all very very well

I noticed they drafted Allen but don't know much about him. Guess I;ll have to wait and see.
Gerry Dulac
11:27
Right. Former WR who has played CB for 2 years at Utah. Big and fast. But we'll see...

Chances we see AB move to the slot and our 2 deep threats on the outside??? Sounds like a "super" lineup!!!!!
Gerry Dulac
11:27
None. They are not fiddling w what AB does.
STEELER DAVE

More of a statement than a question. I think this secondary, provided both rookie corners make the team could be a pleasant surprise and strength especially if Golson stays healthy.
Gerry Dulac
11:28
I agree totally. Those are some big ifs, but it would be a nice infusion of young talent.

How is Knile Davis looking taking first team reps at RB? Possible FA steal at backup RB?
Gerry Dulac
11:28
They are eager to take a look at him in the preseason. They think he can be a nice addition. Power and speed.

The move to keep 90 on the team through the preseason only a move to hype the preseason games,or is there a benefit to it beyond having players that are not starters and won't even make the team available to play that 4th preseason game?
Gerry Dulac
11:30
Well, there won't be 90 for the fourth preseason game because there is already a cut before that. But that's all -- to have more bodies available during the preseason so the starters and top backups don't have to play as much.
Scott in Dallas

I am not sure why everyone wants to cut Gay. He has been solid for a long time and it's not like the whole D didn't look bad against NE. You?
Gerry Dulac
11:30
Believe me, they know where the liabilities lie.

Gerry, can you please ask everyone to stop all the Patriots talk & what we need to do to beat Brady? #12 is on the cover of Madden 2018 at 40 years old, nuff said...
Gerry Dulac
11:31
Only way for them to beat Brady is to not play him in New England in January
11:32
I think it was more trying to give Brady different looks to confuse. That didn't work out too well.
11:33
Oops, that answer goes with this question....
Scott in Dallas
11:33
I was reading how it seemed like it was taking a long time for the D to get lined up in NE and was wondering if we had more of those notorious "technical difficulties" in NE or if it was an issue with Shazier getting the calls made on the field?
Gerry Dulac
11:34
BTW, I thought you said you were tired of all the Brady talk....

Do you have anything on how brian allen and keion adams have looked in OTAs i know its just shorts with no contact but i havent heard anything on those guys
Gerry Dulac
11:34
Well, you're not paying attention. I wrote something one of the first day of OTAs on Allen and have mentioned him several times already today in this chat
STEELER DAVE
11:34
I believe 5 of the 6 receivers to make the team should be AB, MB, Eli Rogers, Ju Ju, Coates... I'm not a huge fan of DHB just from a production stand point. Your thoughts ?
Gerry Dulac
11:35
I agree 100 percent. The sixth could be a tossup among Hunter, Ayers and DHB.
dK
11:35
How is Ethan Cooper doing at OTAs?
Gerry Dulac
11:35
I'll have to ask Wolf. I don't study free-agent OL in shorts
Ryno
11:36
Given that it is football in shorts, is there truthfully much media guys like you can really see of any importance at this point? Or does the only meaningful stuff not present itself until the pads come on?
Gerry Dulac
11:36
Bingo. Hold your cards.
Luca Brazzi
11:36
How long do you think Brandon Boykin lasts in Balt with that degenerative hip thing he has?
Gerry Dulac
11:37
How long will depend how desperate they are in the secondary.
Mendelius
11:39
Gay and Cockrell are not good enough to beat the Pats, are they?
Gerry Dulac
11:39
No.
That's all the time we have today kids. Got to go watch practice in shorts.
