With a rash of new offenses sweeping the league

  • Sutton Smith Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , the Pittsburgh Steelers are staying the course.“We’re going to be the same, boring old Steelers,” quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told John Kryk of the on Thursday. “There’s something to be said about not making big changes, and just getting better at what you already know.”Within what the Steelers already know, there are plenty of unknowns. This will the first year without either Antonio Brown or Le'Veon Bell on the team since 2009, and it remains to be seen how defenses will approach the Pittsburgh offense.Presumably, they’ll try to take away 2018 team MVP and new No. 1 receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster with two or more defenders. Can JuJu beat double coverage? If not Sutton Smith Jersey 2019 , his numbers will reflect that.Then comes the question of whether the running backs will draw a safety toward the line of scrimmage, like Bell did. James Conner thrived last year, in an offense that had Brown. If Conner, who now enters his third season, can find another gear to his game, the focus on Smith-Schuster could shift to Conner.Ultimately, the goal will be for Smith-Schuster and Conner to become the new Brown and Bell. Along the way Cheap Sutton Smith Jersey , other players will need to step up to take advantage of favorable matchups, whether that’s receiver Donte Moncrief, receiver James Washington, receiver Diontae Johnson, receiver Ryan Switzer, or tight end Vance McDonald.Still, Roethlisberger remains at the center of it all Jon Bostic Jersey , and it’s quite possible that Roethlisberger is the real reason for the team’s success on offense, with his decisions and throws ultimately providing the impetus for moving the chains, scoring points, and winning games. The Steelers own 10 picks in this year’s draft after dealing wide receiver Antonio Brown and tackle Marcus Gilbert this offseason and some might wonder if that will make them likelier to package some picks in order to move up the board for a player they covet in April.General Manager Kevin Colbert fielded that question during a Sunday session with reporters from the league meetings and predictably did not rule out anything with the draft a month away. He also pointed out trades to move up in the first round that netted safety Troy Polamalu and wide receiver Santonio Holmes as signs of the Steelers’ willingness to pull the trigger when the moment suits them.Colbert also provided the flip side of that by pointing out that a late pick thrown into a package could turn out to be a player as valuable as Brown.“Anytime you鈥檙e talking about trading draft picks, I never just use, it鈥檚 a three and a six, because that six might be Antonio Brown Cameron Sutton Jersey ,” Colbert said, via the team’s website. “You say, just throw in a seventh. Well, that seventh might have been Brett Keisel. So you never just want to say, it鈥檚 a pick. You try to associate a player you could get with those picks. And you go back in history and look at what you got with certain picks, but then you also project who you might be turning away from in a given draft.”The Steelers have two picks in the third round and three in the sixth along with one selection in each of the other five rounds.
