Why the inordinate number of injuries this summer? They look more like a MASH unit than a football team.
Gerry Dulac
11:16
I know what you mean. But I think part of it is that Mike Tomlin is just being overly cautious, especially w his starters. It's just the second week of camp. No need to rush anyone on the field

How does Sean Davis look in year two?
Gerry Dulac
11:16
He should be very good. He was last year
Gus

Watching Ben's interviews this past week on ESPN it sure seems like he only perpetuates his Diva rep..really doesn't seem to care since he's won his 2 SB s..doesn't have the drive Peyton and Brady have...you agree?
Gerry Dulac
11:16
No I don't. Not at all
Rob
11:16
do you think mike hilton makes the 53?
Gerry Dulac
11:17
Right now he has a chance. Lets wait till they play a couple games

How has Hargraves and Davis looked in camp so far....I've heard a lot about Burns but not much about the other 2 second year players.
Gerry Dulac
11:17
Hargrave and Davis are very good. They should take big steps in year two. Nothing wrong there.

What do you hear about AV's head injury? Is he in concussion protocal? Thanks
Gerry Dulac
11:18
They don't have to list injuries in preseason but he got dinged in the head Sunday night and hasnt returned.

What do you think the steelers record will be overall?  With in the Division?
Gerry Dulac
11:18
12-4 if healthy, 11-5 if banged up.
Bud
11:18
can Bell be traded if unsigned
Gerry Dulac
11:19
No
Taz

Seems like Tomlin is holding more vets out of practice than the past, which I think is good.  With that in mind, are we in for the worst preseason in Steelers history?  (in quality of games if not record)
Gerry Dulac
11:20
Who cares if they are. Makes no difference
mding729

Over a week into camp, what WR make the team?  What WR get cut?
Gerry Dulac
11:20
AB, Bryant, JuJu, Rogers, Coates and DHB.
Jud

How long do you think the starters will play on Friday... 2 series... more?
Gerry Dulac
11:21
Most of the starters will not play, especially the stars. And two series max, probably just one, for the ones who do play.
Joe From SoFlo
11:21
Is Ross Cockrell a good enough DB 2 to get us through the AFC playoffs? Going up against strong offensive teams such as the Pats and Raiders...
Gerry Dulac
11:21
He was last year, at least up until the AFC title game.
MikeNYC

Shazier and Davis were among league-leaders in missed tackles last year.  Should we expect improvement on that score?  Thank you.
Gerry Dulac
11:22
I think Davis will be much better now in his second year. Shazier is still learning to play at a  more controlled speed. He can get in the backfield so fast that sometimes he overruns the play

Have you seen enough of Dobbs to render an opinion on his strengths and/or weaknesses as an NFL back up QB?
Gerry Dulac
11:23
No I need to see him in a game. But he gets rid of the ball quick and knows where to go with his progressions for the most part. But that's against his own team. Let's wait...
Jeff
11:23
Good morning.  Based on previous answers in this Q&A, it appears Golson is hurt pretty bad again.  Is it time to cut him and move on, or is he worth holding on to for what appears to be another trip to the IR?
Gerry Dulac
11:24
I don't think he has another IR in his future, not with the team. I think they are willing to wait to give him a chance to show something. Look, it's not his fault he's been injured. Nobody feels worse than him. I think the Steelers will give him as much time as they can for his final shot but they not carry him again.
Rob
11:24
what's your opinion of sensebaugh so far?
Gerry Dulac
11:25
William Gay
Shane falco
11:25
What is wrong with shadier and dubree? Tomkin hasn't said anything about them
Gerry Dulac
11:25
MInor injuries. Just being cautious w both
jimbo
11:25
any rookie hazing going on? Watt have to carry deebo's pads?
Gerry Dulac
11:25
I'm sure they do but I don't pay attention to that nonsense
GjSteel
11:25
Hi Gerry, do you think we will see any philosophy change in Steeler defense that will be easy recognizeable
Gerry Dulac
11:26
I don't know how trained your eye is but they will try to play more man coverage this year than they have in the past
Jud
11:26
With no competition in camp, how does MT stress the kickers in camp to increase performance?  Pressure situations?
Gerry Dulac
11:26
I think Boz has shown he can handle pressure. There is NOTHING Tomlin can do in training camp to simulate what he has already handled
