I'm sure you'll never answer this but why do you block fans for calling you out for constantly tweeting golf stories about minor clubs/events now that the Steelers are in camp? Most people follow you for the Steelers
Gerry Dulac
11:13
I know they do and a lot follow me because of golf. I block anyone on Twitter who tries to get personal or is a complete you-know-what, no matter if its about golf or the Steelers. You ever see me get personal with anyone on Twitter? No.
11:14
Did I answer that OK?
Bill

i know it's very early, but give me your best guess on which WR's make the 53. Thanks!
Gerry Dulac
11:17
AB, Bryant, JuJu, Rogers, Coates and DHB. Hunter could replace one of the last two. And I like what I see from DeM Ayers

Do you think Bell will report to the team before Labor Day?
Gerry Dulac
11:17
Yes
Bill

How's Bens arm looking so far this year?
Gerry Dulac
11:18
As good as ever. Ben's arm is stronger now than when he came into the league.

Do you foresee any scenario where 7 receivers make the roster? It would just be a matter of the bottom 3 playing special teams, no?
Gerry Dulac
11:18
Not really. If it does, it's because someone is a standout special teams player who happens to play WR and I don't see that person in the group

How much does someone like golson (for example) make missing a whole season? Do they pay him a full salary or is there some clause in the contract that pays him less? What about salary cap? ty
Gerry Dulac
11:20
I'm not sure of that exact answer but because the team keeps him via injured reserve they are paying some considerable amount relative to his contract

Have any of the late round picks, UDFA or FA stood out so far
Gerry Dulac
11:20
I like what I saw of Keion Adams, their seventh rd pick, the other day. Looked bigger and played bigger in pads.
Rob
11:21
Gerry, do you ever go golfing with any of the players or coaches during camp on the off days or whenever?
Gerry Dulac
11:21
I have yes

Great chat, as always Gerry. I haven't been hyper about going after a QB, as some others have been, but with Ben's recent statements, it seems the Steelers have to be serious about finding one. I know they always prefer the draft route, but they'll likely be pickng at the bottom. Do you think they might go after someone established, or stick to the draft?
Gerry Dulac
11:22
No, they would seek that person through the draft, and I believe they will get more serious in the 2018 draft, certainly by 2019. Anyone who they might be able to get who is established probably isn't much better, if at all, than Landry Jones, they believe.

Good morning Gerry. There's an article today in the Boston globe talking about Tom Brady owning the Steelers, are the Steelers doing anything differently this year to stop that from happening AGAIN!
Gerry Dulac
11:23
yeah, try not to have to play him in NE
Nick for New Hampshire
11:23
Gerry, I am wondering who has looked the best out of the DB's. I heard a lot about Artie Burns looking good on day 1. But, who is your top 3 in numerical order as of today?
Gerry Dulac
11:24
If by DBs you mean cornerbacks, it's Burns, Cockrell and Sensibaugh
Dave
11:24
Have any of the young undrafted DBs stood out any? I've heard before they're high on Hilton.
Gerry Dulac
11:25
I don't know that they're high on Hilton. He has just stood out a little. But it's only a couple days. The waiver wire is filled with one-week wonders
Shashi
11:25
Getting to hear some nice reviews on Justin Hunter's play, what are your views on that.
Gerry Dulac
11:26
Like I said earlier, I agree but I'll hold off on the rush to judgement. Needs to see game action. But you certainly notice him
Rick
11:26
Do you think Big Dan's stay with the Steeler's has run its course?
Gerry Dulac
11:26
No. I think he has one more year. But it won't shock me if it has.
Dave
11:26
Are we gonna see an equal amount of snaps for Jones and Dobbs, or are they going to just let Dobbs come in with the 12th string guys where we can't see how he does with some of the better players around him?
Gerry Dulac
11:27
Its probably more of the latter. Dobbs will probably get more snaps than Jones merely to give him lots of playing time. But it will not be to see if he should be the No. 2 QB
BillFraz
11:27
I think Demarcus Ayers is the bomb - tough, fast, great attitude, and DHB can't catch. Please tell me the Steelers will keep Ayers over DHB!
Gerry Dulac
11:28
That wouldn't surprise me, but I cant tell you that for sure. They like DHB for special teams and veteran presence
Dave
11:28
Will Tuitt get a new deal before the start of the year?
Gerry Dulac
11:28
I expect he will
Scott in Amsterdam
11:28
If the Steelers do win the Super Bowl this year....do you think Roethlisberger would be more or less likely to retire afterwards?
Gerry Dulac
11:28
He might be more likely. Some guys like to go out on top.
Nick
11:29
When healthy, who looked better in camp, Cam Sutton or Golson?
Gerry Dulac
11:29
Not enough body of work with either. Sutton hasn't even been in pads
ryan

What are your thoughts on brian allen and the depth on the defensive line
