2019 Senior Bowl: Breaking down the Wide Receiver Group

2019 Senior Bowl: Breaking down the Wide Receiver Group

The Senior Bowl draws an impressive group of WRs which the Pittsburgh Steelers might be interested in. With the Senior Bowl coming up, the Pittsburgh Steelers will most certainly be looking for some wide receivers here, as Mike Tomlin has dispatched the entire assistant coaching staff, including Keith Butler, Randy Fichtner, and Teryl Austin to Mobile. So, the first group is one to pay attention to with Antonio Brown’s future in Pittsburgh being a question mark. How is the Senior Bowl WR group? Here is a short breakdown them all. Note: This is the initial group, void of all dropouts,...

Advanced Stats on Micheal Ferland and other possible Penguins trade targets

With news today sourcing some actual interest from the Pittsburgh Penguins on potential trade target Micheal Ferland, I reached out to our buddy Sean Tierney to get some data. I gave Sean a few names, and he gave me this view of goals above replacement. We included Derick Brassard for reference, and to show that sending Brass out and bringing someone else new in would be pretty beneficial. “Gustav Nyquist has been the best of the bunch overall,” Sean noted. “He’s powered good results at even-strength despite playing for a struggling Red Wings team.” I also like Minnesota’s...

Are the Penguins in the trade market for Micheal Ferland?

The Hurricanes pending UFA winger appears to be desired by the Penguins It’s almost late January, so that means it’s just about time for Silly Season™️ to take over and for trade talks to be heating up nearly every day, if not multiple times per day. Over at The Athletic ($$) , Pierre LeBrun mentions the Carolina Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Penguins possibly looking to make a deal yet again. First, let’s update Ferland. The pending UFA winger is all but gone. The only way he stays put is if there’s breakthrough in talks between the two sides but I don’t see that happening...

Pens’ bye week fun starting to hit social media

As a Steelers fan, I’ve made my peace with the Patriots continued Super Bowl success

If the Patriots do tie the Steelers with a sixth Super Bowl title, will it really be that big of a deal? If so, why? Thanks to a 37-31 overtime victory over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night, the Patriots clinched their third-straight trip to the Super Bowl—Super Bowl LIII against the Rams on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be New England’s ninth trip to the Super Bowl since the 2001 season, and if you’re a Steelers fans who knows anything about Super Bowls and the Patriots, that’s a lot of Super Bowls and...

Pens Points: Bye Week Blues

Pens Points: Bye Week Blues

As the players rest and recover on the bye week, news trickles in at a snail's pace with team activities being shut down. Don’t worry, just because the team is off doesn’t mean Pens Points is as well. Here is your Tuesday morning edition to warm you up. I’m afraid this may be a slow news week surrounding the Penguins at least until Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang report to San Jose for the All-Star game at the end of the week. You surely know by now that the Penguins are on their CBA mandated bye week which happens to coincide with the All-Star break. Whatever news does pop up over the...
