Seems Seahawks are all in with Will Dissly (UW Huskies product) at TE.

Damn, that's too bad, and I really liked him.

5th Round pick in next years draft 

It’s pronounced “Thee”.

It seems weird that the Steelers keep making trades. I get that they don’t want to throw in the towel already but it’s not looking like a great season. If you’re going to miss the playoffs anyway why give up any assets?

It's their division. Bengals are bad, Browns looks like they goofed on the HC hire and a lot of people think the Ravens are frauds.  8-8 could sneak you into the playoffs.. heck, maybe even 7-9

Go Bucks!

That Monday Night Football game between the 0-3 Bengals and the 0-3 Steelers is going to be epic.  Given how well these two have "played nice" over the past 10 years and how the professional baseball teams of those cities can't get along, maybe we'll be treated to an all-timer of a brawl.  

Always remember: WE'RE STRETCHING! AND YOU'RE A KICKER!

The Browns are my second team in that division, but I don't think Kitchens is that bad at all. They're lacking a couple of tackles and need to get Mayfield to stay in the pocket when he's being protected. I think they have an above .500 record this year. 

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die.

As bad as most of the division is playing...you never know.

Steelers have only lost to the Pats in the conference... Ravens haven’t backed their week one blowout of the worst team in the league and I don’t want to hear about the KC game bc they aren’t what they were last year.. Bengals aren’t good, Browns are meh(like nobody could see that coming).. the division is wide open

Maybe Vanett has Cardale on his speed dial. Stillers could use him now.

As a Steelers fan, I was always hoping that Cardale could one day take over for Ben.

Great news!  I regretted the loss of Jesse James- a decent/not great TE and X Grimble is a great athlete but a very suspect TE. Vannett is sorely needed and I love having Buckeyes on the Steeler roster. 
still too soon to say if this team will wake up and play or not, but Tomlin's worst year was 8-8 off an 0-4 start, so don't count them out yet  ...

I have the misfortune of living in Pittsburgh and listening to morning sports radio you'd think Vannett was the worst player ever. I'm generally a pretty calm person but I wanted to punch my radio this morning.

God bless and go Bucks.

Pittsburgh sports writers and talking heads are the worst.  Most haven't a clue what they are talking about.  You would be doing yourself a favor by not listening to them.

I've mostly enjoyed the meltdowns this season but I'm taking your advice going forward.

God bless and go Bucks.

Let me put it this way.  Every single Pittsburgh media source was up in arms when Shazier was drafted.  I said over and over that he was a guy that could pull the defense into the modern area.  We all know how that worked out up until his injury....he was a leader for that team from the second he stepped on the field and is now beloved in Pittsburgh.  They like to pretend they know what they are doing, yet none of them have a clue.

To be fair it’s a little unnerving that he couldn’t establish himself in Seattle with an offense that seems tailor fit for an athletic pass catching TE safety blanket for a mobile qb, or that he was found expendable after the emergence of another guy on the roster.

As a Steelers fan, why would you keep throwing away draft picks when its looking like a losing season? Who cares about the division... Ben is out, running game has been suspect, and Tomlin still cant beat the Pats....throw in the towel, and start preparing to rebuild. its time

Not a bad point. But they could be an 8-8 team in the playoffs. Many other teams would kill to make it in.
