I think they expected Pickett to be more of a force than he has been.The Steelers' offense... I have no idea what the plan is. They drafted Freiermuth in the 2nd a couple years ago, he was a bright spot last year.... he has 5 targets this year and they are trying to use him to block. Their WRs are two guys who are good contested catch guys (Robinson/Pickens) but get zero separation.... what is their plan?
He has some of the lowest average separation in the league, We'll have to see what the numbers are after the week, but I would guess Bourne for example blows him away. If you are looking for speed or separation Pickens is not your guy. There is a reason even pre-draft his comp was Parker most places, they are very similar players. Which isn't bad, Parker is/was a good WR, he was better in his 20s but could never stay healthy.Pickens caught a seventy yard TD last week without a defender within five yards of him when he caught the ball. I'd give my left leg for a Pats receiver that can't get separation like him.
Allen Robinson is Juju level toast.
I think he thought he could bring in a DC to fix the D and he could have a solid offense. Seems to me their biggest issue is the O-line, the weapons are fine, the line is not.What was McDaniels’ plan going to the Raiders? The defense still sucks and he has just a few good offensive players.
i feel bad for him as well he has got a raw deal was overdafted by 10-15 picks started out as a holding all the time guy now is a solid starter say NE u want bolles for your 2nd in 24 3rd in 25Oof. Feel bad for this dude
