About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • Bob Francis

    I know the defense has been playing much better the past 2 games, but I’m still puzzled at the relatively low snap counts for Heyward and McLendon.

  • JohnnyV1

    2nd that on McLendon! I thought he’d be starting, and Hampton would be relieving him, just from the way it looked/sounded in the off-season.

  • SteelerDave

    I would hope that as the season progresses we see McClendon getting more and more of the 30 to 35 snaps a game at NT as this well could be Hamptons last season and McClendon needs more than a half dozen plays a game to truly be prepared to be the man getting 80% plus of those snaps next season.

  • Menace_501

    Plus why is Al Woods getting snaps over Heyward?

  • Menace_501

    Anyone else notice that Cotchery is getting less and less snaps?

  • Pete

    McLendon is getting about 30% of the snaps at NT. Hampton is playing above the line and I’m sure he would be playing less if his play was suffering. You want the best guy in for the majority of the snaps and that guy is Hampton.

  • Ahmad

    Yeah I have noticed that. I wonder why that is?

  • Ahmad

    I don’t know what Casey Hampton you’re watching but the one I’m watching has been getting blown off the ball all year.

  • SteelSpine

    I’ve been wondering that too, & Cotchery had chance to leave last offseason to be 3rd WR (or maybe even as high as a 2nd) elsewhere. I guess the reason we dont hear Cotchery’s name is just Haley’s system. Sanders being our 3rd WR, & Cotchery 4th on depth chart, Haley insteda calling many plays with 4 WRs, Haley’s system prefers TEs & a FB, or gadget guy (Rainey). Also Sanders is healthy this year. So probly not any fault of Cotchery. Cotchery signed a 2 year deal, so when Wallace leaves I anticipate the other 3 will move up & Cotchery will be our 3rd WR.

  • SteelSpine

    I thought so too. Maybe the lack of playing time for McClendon is because this past offseason the lower talent level faced & simple schemes fooled me into thinking McClendon is a beast, but I dont wanna think that. I’m gonna go with SteelerDave’s response to ya herein.

  • Andrew Grigsby

    I don’t understand that either why Wood is playing over Heyward,maybe it’s a practice thing or something. Very odd tho im with you guys McLendon needs more PT for sure.

  • zyzak

    Hampton is playing better than most people think, he blew up a lot Sunday. Heyward also getting more snaps

  • michaelbro8

    McClendon & Hampton combined for only 30 snaps, so LeBeau is playing some different formations without a NT.
