Now that the 2016 football season is over we can talk about the ups and downs, good and bad, positive and negatives and who did well and who fell short of what we expected of them. I’ll have a few controversial thoughts about this team and I’m sure we will have time to talk about it, but I’ll try not to repeat too much of what we’ve already written and discussed.
It is 60 minutes long but it’s Sunday and what else do you have to do? Especially because it’s cloudy and cold in Pittsburgh.
Something not covered in the podcast; below is the 2017 recruiting class listing as it stand this morning (from Rivals.com).
I have to say that I’m not overly impressed with the class so far. I see some solid performers there who may turn out to be very good ones; DB Ford is one as are RB Sibley, LB Cam Bright, TE Reeves … and obviously there are starters in that group since there basically has to be. But we need to have more sure bets in the pipeline to grow better as a team; one four-star recruit is just not enough.
Now will see what this next week or two brings in before the kids sign on the dotted line on LOI day but if we don’t land some big fish soon I think we are two recruiting classes behind being able to have a real championship caliber team.
Enjoy and I’ll have some more articles up this week – I’m trying to get back to one a day.
