I have been a big supporter of JuJu but let us not get crazy here. This offense is still not scoring like it should. I watch the Cowboys and some other teams scoring over 30 points a game and they sure as shit are not going to fail repeatedly in the red zone.

It isn't about JuJu replacing Bryant. This should be a 3 WR offense and there is nothing wrong with having Brown, Bryant and JuJu being those 3 WRs, they are each in their own way prototypical, each brings a different element to the WR position, they all COMPLEMENT each other perfectly. Haley once had a trio of WRs in Arizona in 2008 that all went over 1,000 yards, Fitz, Bolden and Breaston. This is what we should try and duplicate with our trio of WRs. Having Brown with 150 catches is not the answer. Diversify and include all your weapons on offense.

We just need to get Bryant back on track somehow, this offense needs him.

With that being said, Rogers coming up small again this game, dropping a TD pass, is a problem. He just should not see the field at all, I have no confidence in him whatsoever.

JuJu is not just a possession WR, or just a slot WR, he can be a traditional outside WR, his size and physicality and ability to break tackles allows him to make long plays down the field. What would this season be like if the Steelers did not draft him in the 2nd round?

Most laughed when Bryant was being compared to Moss and TO.

I'm going to suggest that JuJu is Fitz 2.0.

Agree. This offense needs to start using all of its parts.
Getting Bryant back into this offense is step 1.
Getting TEs the ball more than once or twice a game is #2.

At this point, Rogers over Ayers is not looking good.
Ayers returning punts improves return game and he does the same things as back up slot guy as Rogers does. But probably a quicker version, which is key in fhe slot for quick completions for Ben.

Exactly. But MB has to realize and accept this. JuJu is now the starter in 2 WR sets. The Steelers play 3WR more often than not, but Bryant has to be willing to get his touches when he can and not assume that he owns the position.

JuJu is the future. Everyone, including Bryant, knows that. Bryant can make a lot of coin on his next contract (elsewhere) by being a team player and contributing in the way Tomlin wants him to.

He has to understand that throwing a tantrum will not result in him getting traded. It's his only way out.

And if he realizes this sooner rather than later, the Steelers will reap the benefits, as they should (they stood with him through his league suspension and rehab).

Love me some JuJu but we will need more than that to get to the SB.
