 Noticed that was well. JuJu got the yardage for the Steelers but AB ended up with 15 touchdowns. Dude is a weapon in the red zone. 

Once we finally stopped taking Julio out in the red zone he became one too. Almost like it's hard to be a red zone threat when you aren't in the in the game lol. Just another reason Sark should go...

He is but Brown gets lot of single coverage. Julio has couple of guys mugging him in most plays.

Yeah but even Shanahan did that when he was here. I don’t understand why either of them did it.

Interestingly no Antonio Brown or AJ Green on the list.

Brown's absence is fascinating, especially with Ju-Ju so high. AJ had that freak toe injury and only played in eight full games plus about five plays of another one. He was pacing for almost 1,400 yards before that.

AJ got injured weeks ago and we all know Brown and Pittsburgh in general got off to a bumpy start. **** at one point it seemed they were trying to find a way to faze him out of the offense.  He finished with 102 for 1297 and 15 tubs.

A lot of his touchdowns were from outside of the red zone though

Mike Evans does a great job considering his QB's. From watching the games, I feel there was a concerted effort to target Julio for TD's more. 

Interesting that the argument from some here is that Julio wasn't given many redzone chances but now is, so Sark should be fired. :rolleyes:

Great job JJ! He does it under harder circumstances than any other WR in the league. Hopefully that will change as CR emerges and he can do even more big things.

most impressive thing on that list is 15.6 ypr from Kittle at the TE position though, wow!

Congrats Jet! 

Evans, Hill, and mainly Kittle....just wow

 

3 Receivers from the NFC south in the top 10 as well. Nice.

Kittle is a pure speedster. Can't block but he's fast

Julio was in the redzone. Ryan just threw the ball elsewhere. Now you wanna get rid of Sark when Julio is on a run of five or so games straight with a TD? He finished with 8 after not getting his first one until week 7. That means in the second half of the season he was averaging a TD a game. 

Sark needs to stay. You don't kill the momentum, you build on it.

I really went back and forth with what I wanted with Sark. I was on a "fire him" moment then. 

But if it was Sark or Bevell? You stick with Sark IMO.

Sarks inconsistency has sealed his fate.Also think Knapp is lucky to still have a job also.

Another raise coming

A Bevell hire would probably be the first signal that the team is willing to sacrifice offensive salary for defense. It could lead to an interesting off season.
