If I recall correctly, I was very young, but I recall Gabe Rivera being blamed for a PS defensive slump for a few seasons; the argument being it was dufficult to recover from losing your #1 draft pick.

Even if this was a great idea, they wouldn’t have the balls to do it.

You can make a better argument for trading Bell... and I wouldn't do that , either.

Or Bryant, but again they wouldn’t do it - too damn conservative and stubborn.

We seem to have a WR factory. The rookies come in and the coaching and Ben turn them into superstars. Sell one and get the IMLB that seems to take 3 years to develop in the PS. There have not been many rookies that have come in an made a huge impact at that position. I am just saying I don’t want to develop an IMLB. We can live without JuJu and teams are foolish enough to make a trade for a WR. I don’t know who the prospect is, but that is for the GM to figure out. You can’t have AB and Bell at every skill position...the salary cap will not allow it, unless you get some type of Lebron James friends wink wink deal going on.

It makes sense.

You all are being short sighted. Sure up MB and Eli with coaching, plus we have a new punt returner too in Eli.

Yeah, Demarus Ayers, Sammie Coates, Markus Wheaton, Justin Brown, Toney Clemons, and Limas Sweed are all setting the league on fire.

The Steelers are better than average at picking WRs, but they're not perfect at it. JuJu is a budding star. There is no way they're trading him, and it would make absolutely no sense to do so.

JuJu is on a rookie contracts and playing for peanuts. So yeah, the salary cap will more than allow it.

There is absolutely Zero Chance the Steelers will trade Juju.

I'll give you credit for having the gonads to post this. Not much else though.

So assuming Ben returns, we will have AB, MB, Ju Ju, and Eli again. Too much pressure to make everyone happy. I suspect this pressure is what has made the offense sputter at times this year.

Get rid of someone (JuJu) from the WR Corp if you can get a IMLB with a pedigree.

I just don’t think you can get too much (trade wise) from Rogers and MB, so Ju Ju is th obvious candidate. I love him, and loved the Burfict hit, just think it is more important to plug the run defense gap quickly, rather than sit on too much talent in the WR Corp. you can have to much talent in the WR Corp to the detriment of the team.

Oh well no biggy if we don’t. I trust the front office.
