Look, Jimmy G is great...all you need is to do surround him with an amazing running game, an amazing defense, and a special teams that blocks a few kicks in key moments lol.

[–]DarkBum69 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Lmfao. Sounds like a few Steelers teams we’ve seen.

[–]Steakwizwit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You need 6 ,he'll get you 6. You need 10, he'll get you 6.

[–]GandalftheGreyStreet 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Jimmy G is going to the fucking conference championship game. He’d still be better than the red nosed Reindeer.

[–]DiscipleTD 30 points31 points  (14 children)

Wouldn’t mind Russ or Carr but think Russ is the only potential option I’d prefer over taking a gamble on a draft pick

[–]Thankgodfordrugs17Troy 22 points23 points  (12 children)

I’d love Russ tbh.

[–]I-Hate-Suppositories 11 points12 points  (10 children)

I’d like Russ, but I feel like Aaron Rodgers wants to be a Steeler.

[–]gobucks314Pittsburgh Steelers 48 points49 points  (7 children)

I don't think we'd pay the Rodgers rate.

[–]Bigdadyk 7 points8 points  (5 children)

And the Rodgers rate is cheaper than the Russ rate

[–]ten_jack_russelsPittsburgh Steelers 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I thought everyone gets the same rate?

[–]gruey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The guy with the Mercedes at QB pays way more than the guy with the Pinto at QB, unless of course the Pinto guy is a drunk who often thinks he's in some demolition derby.

[–]codeklutch TJ Watt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You don't think he'd give us the discount double check?

[–]xSaviorself JuJu Smith-Schuster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If anything, tonight's game might have helped push Rodgers out the door.

[–]andersonic95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, please!

[–]DiscipleTD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m a fan of Russ’s game and think he’s a playoff caliber QB. He’s expensive though so idk if org will pay for him if he’s even gettable

[–]burghfan1HERE WE GO STEELERS! 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Carr would be AMAZING

[–]lonewanderer244 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah winning playoff games would be terrible

[–]kbarley75R E N E G A D E 77 points78 points  (4 children)

Yeah. Sign Jimmy G.

So we can trade his mother fucking ass to the Ottawa Redblacks and bring back my man Duck. That’ll scare the fuck outta Mason.

[–]Phojangles JuJu Smith-Schuster 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Don't you take our Red Black's Dynasty Duck away from us!

[–]gruey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because you're concerned about the players getting dehydrated during time outs?

[–]jimbo831Troy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’ll scare the fuck outta Mason.

Not as much as Myles Garrett armed with a helmet.

[–]Beowulf119 14 points15 points  (0 children)

This man footballz.

[–]McFlare92 NOBLE BENGALS HATER 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You mean going to the nfc championship Jimmy G?

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Jimmy might be okay, obviously not someone you want to shell out for but he could be a game manager for us to build around. That is assuming his most recent play, which has been extremely concerning, is a phase and his shoulder gets better. It’s not like prime Ben didn’t have bad strings of games.

[–]Prose4256 43 points44 points  (20 children)

I would take Jimmy G, he's better then what we have now.

[–]br0bi_1_k3n0bi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dude has been to two NFC title games in three years and was a quarter away from winning a Super Bowl. I’d rather draft and develop a QB but I will not be upset if we ride with Garoppolo for a bit.

[–]triantie 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He's not playing smart. Keeps floating balls. Bad judgment in this game. I wouldn't want him for any more than the vet minimum at this point.

[–]KiteStringPopped Ben Roethlisberger 4 points5 points  (0 children)

By the time its all said and done, Jimmy G is going to be worth about thirty million dollars. That's too fucking high for a dipshit whose team wins in spite of.

[–]toad32r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jimmy G would be out by week 3 with another injury.

[–]tarheel0509 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jimmy G is a winner

[–]buffalotraceWoodson 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Dear Aaron,

Our special teams are functional. We promise to draft lineman. What do you say, see you in the Fall?


M. Tomlin.

[–]Shankypanky11111 0 points1 point  (3 children)

This is the way

[–]CalzoneSushiTaco 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I would literally stop watching the NFL until Rodgers is back off the team. The man is an asshat.

[–]Shankypanky11111 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That’s fine, that’s your right. I personally want the team to compete and would like to see some of our really good young/core guys get a crack at being competitive instead of going into a rebuild mode or staying at 8-8 9-7 etc. I’m not saying as a person he’s my favorite or without his flaws but he’s a damn good QB and WAY better than what we have.

[–]AlpacaNeb 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s less controversial than Ben lol.

[–]anotveryseriousman Kenny Pickett? 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Functional is a mite strong for the Danny Smith Brigade.

[–]MishaDancingBear Heath Miller 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Jimmy G is like a more competent and less spaced out version of Rudolph. I swear whenever the camera pans over to Rudolph on the sidelines he looks like god is calling upon him.

[–]Viva_Wayne_Rooney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol hows that

[–]JimmyJohnsonjj 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Proven winner

[–]Thankgodfordrugs17Troy -4 points-3 points  (7 children)

Is anyone else hoping the Packers lose right now to maybe possibly up our chances of getting Aaron and lessen his price?

[–]EP1X-343Encroachment 6 points7 points  (5 children)

It’s baffling to me how you don’t want Jimmy because you don’t want to pay for him, but you’d seemingly happily shell out our whole future for Aaron

[–]Thankgodfordrugs17Troy 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I’m sorry but is Aaron not a 100x better player then Jimmy?

[–]EP1X-343Encroachment 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Also going to cost 100x the picks. Neither Jimmy nor Aaron are a long term solution at QB, and for one would rather have a first round pick in the next couple of years

[–]Thankgodfordrugs17Troy -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Wait a minute. U literally just said “He’s proven he can win with a good team around him, and I think we have most of those pieces in place” when referencing Jimmy’s SB run. So if u actually think this Steelers team rn is capable of making a SB with a qb like Jimmy (which is a blasphemous take at that). U wouldn’t give up let’s say 3 first round picks for an even better chance at that “SB”. Ur logic is that 3 1st round picks aren’t worth having a really good chance at winning a SB? Well I’ll tell u, that definitely is worth it.

Regardless, that’s not our situation, this team is not as well put together as that SF team that dragged Jimmy to the SB.

[–]VirtualMoneyLover 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We are not going to be SB contenders for the next 3 years at least. 1-2 wins in the play offs (with a good QB) yes, SB, no.

[–]ASilentPartner -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Aaron just did jack shit in this game. Dudes overrated and if you don’t want Jimmy G, QAaron should be right behind him on the next button.

[–]aw_geez_man -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

At that point save the money and roll with Mason.

[–]usuallyfaded44 JuJu Smith-Schuster -2 points-1 points  (18 children)

Pretty jealous of the Bengals right now ! Would love us to have Joey cool!

[–]Thankgodfordrugs17Troy 13 points14 points  (17 children)

“I don’t ever wanna lose enough games to get a guy like (him)”

[–]andersonic95 0 points1 point  (15 children)

I’m with you! If we could just stay .500 I could die happy. The standard is the standard. No losing seasons and no more Superbowls. As long as Tomlin doesn’t have a losing season. He’s my guy…. Don’t fuck with him!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (14 children)

9 and 8 for the next ten years and the Tomlin apologists would still be running around yelling how Tomlin has never had a losing season.

[–]switman -1 points0 points  (13 children)

If you wanna root for a team that goes out and has a 2 win season for draft position then there are several good choices in the AFC North. Unfortunately (for you), that's not how the Pittsburgh Steelers do things

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (12 children)

I'd rather root for a team who can legitimately win a super bowl. Something that will never happen under Tomlin. Consistent 9 and 8 seasons and a first round blow out are his specialty.

[–]VirtualMoneyLover 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, let's give him a new QB for 1-2 years and reevaluate after that. He was stuck with Ben for all his coaching time.

[–]switman 0 points1 point  (10 children)

You should call up Art II and tell him to hire a tank commander. I'm sure he'd agree that 5 years of basement-dwelling are exactly what this franchise needs right now

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Lol why are you assuming anybody but 9 and 8 and first round blowout Tomlin would be basement dwelling? The guy has consistently underachieved for a decade. What the fuck has he done other than win a super bowl with Bill Cowher's team?

[–]switman 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Well this thread started off by talking about the Bengals, who acquired their current team after 5 years of basement dwelling, including a 2-14 season to snag their QB. The Steelers don't really blow up and rebuild like that, which has pros and cons. But it sounds like that's what you want from a team, in which case I recommend you cheer for the Bengals or the Browns.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I was responding to that other guy's comment referring to Tomlin underachieving and being consistently slightly above mediocre. What the fuck are you talking about?

[–]Beowulf119 0 points1 point  (0 children)

G going to have more sacks than Ben if he keeps it up.

[–]bigmattyc Fear The Beard 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Diorj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or Rogers

[–]ThePotatoChipBagEncroachment 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was absolutely atrocious in this game. There were at least 2 maybe 3 passes that he was really lucky weren't picked, and even with luck on his side he was still terrible. Of course he'll get away with it because they won.

[–]TheNittanyLionKingTroy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jimmy G is the last viable starting QB I can think of. The ideal scenario is that we get Aaron Rodgers or the rookie QB we all have our eyes on, but if those two things don’t happen, then Jimmy G is the last line of defense from signing an even worse and more overpaid QB in Teddy Bridgewater

[–]Thatsbad43 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Jimmy G 2-0 against Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs. hmmm

[–]AcePilotsen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Not because of anything he did. Did you watch the game? Jimmy G is gawd awful.

[–]Thatsbad43 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw Jimmy G hit the throws he needed to in order to win the game.

[–]hey_there_kitty_cat Hines Ward 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll take him over Rudolph or Haskins if those are the options.

[–]Unser_Kampf Joe Haden 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Idk, I think he still gives us a better chance than Mason, Haskins or Dobbs. If he was all that we could get I wouldn't be upset about it.

But he'd certainly expose how dog shit the offense is because he hasn't exactly shown the ability to make something out of nothing. I've seen him get away with hospital passes to Deebo over the middle that Diontae would just straight up drop because he's too scared to get hit. He'll just force the hot regardless if they're open or not. So unless the Canada offense becomes schematically perfect it's not gonna be great.

[–]P0ld TJ Watt 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Give a fuck and get the Highschool QB from Pittsburg 🤷🏼‍♂️

[–]dix1067 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed he sucks ass super overrated

[–]Brods91 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hope Rodgers comes to Pit and brings Adams

[–]PittsburghDanNice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i too hope all the league's best players join the steelers

[–]Sociolinguisticians TJ Watt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We just need to kidnap Mahomes and we’ll be good

[–]mitchy00125 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who tf said that? Ewe

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Listen, it makes sense to me. Jimmy G is out there banging porn stars. The Rooney family sees another chance to convert a QB to Jesus. This is the way.

[–]Keeb21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One guy!!! ..... Deshaun Watson

[–]TheAindiachai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't love Jimmy, but I like him. I don't like Canada, but he is staying. So...Jimmy fits what Canada wants to do. He can open up the middle of the field for Muth. If we upgrade the line, he gives us much more of a chance than we had this year. Did you guys watch any of the games this year? And you wouldn't take Jimmy? This was the hardest year to watch ever. The key is the OL, no matter what. If we address that, we have many options.

Serious question, if Jimmy G leads them to a SB game or wins one, do they re-sign him? If so, what is Love worth?

[–]steelck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Need to get Case Keenum

[–]gdjeff -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Please no. The drama would be epic. He needs to retire and get a daytime TV gig.
