About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • dgh57

    If Belichick and the Patriots lose that will certainly make my weekend a positive one!

  • CrazyTerry

    Seattle’s D has shut out Brees and co for an entire half. Can’t remember the last time our defense has done thatin a playoff game against any offense, let alone an offense as accomplished as the Saints one. Just goes to show you our D Coaches are not the only gods in town that are irreplaceable. Dan Quinn is another great coach and there are other damn good coaches out there. Our teanm needs to keep learning from others as other teams have learned from Lebeau over the years. Same with scouting personnel. Other teams are catching up.

  • William Weaver

    If you think the Seahawks defense is good (they are), don’t forget about the steelers of ’08. 14 consecutive games without allowing 300 yards of total offense! Amazing stat!

  • CrazyTerry

    That Steelers D was a damn great D too. But they still never shut out a good offense in the plkayoffs for 3 Qs of a game. Though what they did to AZ in that first half was pretty damn great in the SB where they scored a pick 6 to offset the 7 they gave up. Seattle’s D has 2 more rounds to go. Last year, Seattle’s D couldn’t finish the job. Can they do it this year? we shall see. They are off to a great start.

  • William Weaver

    Match the ’08 steelers up with this Seahawks team and I think the steelers win 24-13. Seahawks would not run on The steelers. Maybe rush for 55 yards. We would run on them. The saints ran some. I might be wrong but I think the Niners beat the Seahawks. Seahawks handle the panthers easily.

  • Nolrog

    Same. I’m rooting for the Panthers too though.

  • CrazyTerry

    That Steelers team barely scored that many ppoints against a weaker AZ defense and that too with 7 points via Harrison’s TD. What makes you think they can score 24 points in Arians system against this Seattle D level defense.

  • CrazyTerry

    Jamie Collins taken in the 2nd round is making m,ore plays in this one game than Jarvis has made all season. So much for the assertions by our defensive coaches that rookie can’t be that useful in the D. hell, didn’t Woodly make an impact the second half of his rookie year

  • CrazyTerry

    Right now, its the Panthers all the way for me to root for. I cant root for SF to win a 6th. Same with Peyton and Denver winning another SB. Or Brady and NE. Seattle is a reluctant second choice for me. Reluctant only because I hate their fans who whine even now about a 11 points loss to the Steelers because of a few nitpicky calls

  • David Edward

    Was thinking the same thing Terry. Would be interesting to speculate what could’ve been or can be in the future if the Steelers made different draft choices this year. Check this out:
    1. Cordarelle Patterson instead of Jarvis – would’ve had a dynamic KR this year and wouldn’t be wondering who’d be the tall WR opposite AB next year.
    2. Collins instead of Bell – don’t get me wrong, I think Bell is fine, but as you mention, Collins has already made much more of an impact than JJ and has the physical tools to be a better pro player.
    3. Logan Ryan instead of Wheaton – another Pats pick here, he’s a regular in their secondary and has a knack for the ball (INTs), wouldn’t need to worry about who’s taking over for Ike or Gay.
    4a. Shamarko – I’ll let that one stand because I think he’ll be fine, but wonder if they could’ve had him if they stood pat
    4b. Marcus Lattimore instead of Landry Jones – if they were going to throw a pick at someone who won’t play in a year or two, why not Lattimore then? He could end up being what Bell is
    5. Zac Stacy instead of Hawthorne – I was touting Stacy as early as the combine and he proved me right. He would’ve done the same as Bell and Hawthorne didn’t even make the PS.
    6a. Vince Williams instead of Justin Brown – yeah they got Vince with tje final 6th, but what if they got him first then took someone like…
    6b. Chris Jones, who ended up with the Pats (go figure) and was solid on their DL when Wilfork went down. He’s a bit of a NT/DE tweener but strong as Ziggy
    7. Zac Dysert instead of Nick Williams – they could’ve waited to get their #3 to develop…or just not drafted one and taken another DB like Don Jones who runs a 4.4 with a 42″ vert and led the Dolphins in ST tackles.

  • William Weaver

    You make a lot of sense but don’t forget all of the patriot early round misses. All teams hit and miss. The steelers hit home runs with early picks in the early 2000’s and won a couple superbowls. Then they miss a few and fall off. It happens. I would be willing to bet Jarvis will come on strong and make at least 3 pro bowls before he is done. Give him a year or two to get stronger. He won’t be a bust, just a late bloomer. I agree they have missed on a few though. It happens to all teams.
