"If it was me, that's the way I would feel about it". They will be led onto the field by rookie Quarterback Deshone Kizer, who will get his first taste of National Football League regular season action against a very hard-hitting defense that Pittsburgh throws out on the field. "So it means a lot that I have some trust I can run the offense and see something in me". Am I studying my craft? But pressure and rush lane integrity go together like Mike & Ike, peanut butter and jelly, and me and my irrational man-crush on Danny Smith.
Joe Haden's agent Drew Rosenhaus did tell Schefter that there was "tons of interest in him" and that "he will have a new deal with another team by tomorrow afternoon". While Antonio Brown once again put up ridiculous offensive numbers a year ago (106 catches, 1,284 yards, 12 TD's), Roethlisberger struggled to build a consistent rapport with any other receiver. "I was super excited when we got him". The former Browns cornerback had already visited with the Steelers after being waived.
Of course, things have changed in a big way since. Big lines are always scary, especially this early in the season, but the Steelers should be ashamed if they can't cover this one against a rookie quarterback, no Myles Garrett and a completely overmatched Cleveland squad. It is football. Those things happen sometimes when you are out there practicing. "We'll see. I don't want to make medical decisions". He just loves the game and loves getting after it.
Jackson begins his second season as head coach of the Browns, he went 1-15 in season one, the worst in the NFL.
Cleveland's coaching staff is said to have felt that Haden was having a good offseason and that he was healthier than he had been in the past.
It has been said the front office has a fondness for Ohio State products but in reality, only two former Buckeyes are on the roster this season, Cam Heyward and Ryan Shazier.
His work in practice this week has included running deep down the sideline with Darrius Heyward-Bey, one of the Steelers' fastest receivers. You don't know exactly how long a player needs to recover. Rookie T.J. Watt should pay immediate dividends as a pass rusher and when he's out, there's no rest for the Browns as their old nemesis James Harrison returns to the field. "(Watt) and we have Joe", Butler said.
"I think there is something different about him", Crowell said.
"We know Joe very well just from competing against him over the years and always had appreciation not only for his talents but just how he carries himself", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said September 7 on a conference call.
