Love our team but we are probably the least talented (skill players) of any top 10 offense (point/per game) other than Indianapolis and maybe Buffalo.

Look at the offensive talent on teams like Rams, Chargers, Vikings, and Dallas.

This team needs more talent.

What? We have one of the best WRs in the game, one of the leagues top 5 running backs in yardage, a good backup RB. We also have a QB who is more dangerous with his legs that gives us another dimension none of those team have. Would it be nice to have a great #2 WR? Yes. But there is plenty on this offense for it to be dynamic.

And I don’t see what you’re seeing with Rams have two solid WRs. And a bunch of Mediocre running backs.

And if Kyler was healthy. Kirk was getting deep on a lot of people. Kyler obviously can’t throw the ball 50 yards right now.

"other than Indianapolis and maybe Buffalo."

Buffalo's talent is not suspect.

QB - Josh Allen arguably the most talented under 25 QB
RB - Devin Singletary . Zach Moss, T J Yeldon
WR - Stephom Diggs, Cole Beasley , John Brown,
TE - Dawson Knox, Tyler Kroft

The cards might be a little less talented skill player wise - but we have something none of the rest of them have. The best running qb in the game. He is what makes our offense special.

I think our skill players are good enough, and our offensive production depends 85% on Kyler's aggressiveness and effectiveness in any given game.

Can someone point to me the reason the Steelers are so much more talented than us on offense? We have the number 2 WR in the league and the #6 RB in the league? The Steelers have no one above either one of those guys.

I agree their running backs are worse than ours, but I do like their overall receiving core better. I feel our skill position players are pretty comparable.

I think the reason their offense is ranked as highly as it is has a lot to do with their defense giving them more downs than most other teams.

agreed. I just don't see a world where we are so talent deficient to the other top ten teams with Hop, Drake and Chase as solid weapons with also rans behind them with Fitz and Kirk. That's not the 1999 Greatest Show On Turf, but it's a solid cache of weapons.

Well to start...6/7 teams ahead of us have 6x MVP award winning QB's who have won at least one Super Bowl (12 total).

BTW - Have we really upgraded offensive skill positions that much from 2018?

2018
KK vs Rosen (significant improvement)
Added Dhop (significant improvement)
Drake vs David Johnson (neutral 2018 vs 2020)
Fitz was way better in 2018 (decrease)

So, we added a rookie (now 2nd year QB) and Dhop.

2018 - 3 win team and 14pts/game (last in NFL)
2020 - 8 or 9 wins and 8th in the NFL (22.6/game)

Exactly. This is another board over-reaction because we lost a game we had no business losing. Doesn't mean the talent isn't there.

If the offense scores 35 and we lose, KK is a bad playcaller.
If we score 32 and win against a tough Buffalo team, it was only because a fluke hail mary.
If our defense finally plays well and makes Cam look pedestrian, our offense is terrible, our coach needs to be fired, and we need to sit KM.

Teams that go from being the worst team in the league, need to learn how to win. In two years, we went from being the worst team in the league to a middle of the pack team that is competitive in almost every game.

Baby steps people.

jesus. That’s massive spin. Bottom line... two weeks ago we had a QB playing an MVP Level, the Best WR in the game, a stable of productive runnings backs and some guys at WR.

and why are you comparing us against two years ago? You should be comparing us...

forget it. You’re right. An offense with a Nunber 1 pick at QB, the best WR in the game, the sixth highest rushing leader in the game, a good 3rd down back behind him is really talent deficient.

Hop is elite.

Chase is good.

Drake is decent.

Kirk is...man...okay I guess. Lost a lot of faith in him yesterday.

Fitz is a legend, but washed.
