    Default #3 Rusher in the entire NFL

    Who would have thunk it?

    Le'veon Bell is STILL sitting out on his contract dispute, and I guess he thought he would "hurt" the team and show them his value by not being there.

    Well, the Steelers take has always been "next man up" when someone is traded or injured.

    In comes "James Conner".

    He played for the University of Pittsburgh a few years back. He was AWESOME but then got cancer, but kicked it's ass! Drafted in the 3rd round by the Steelers.

    Got the call when Le'veon never showed up this year, and now is the 3rd best rusher thus far this year, halfway through the season. He also has 9 rushing touchdowns. Another 323 yards receiving. A dual threat all the way around - just like Le'veon was.
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    Adrian Peterson for the Redskins has not been a bad pick-up, either!

    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    Running back is among the easiest positions to fill because they rely so much upon offensive line. Clear holes and even punters could make yards carrying the ball.

    That said - there's something about power and vision and acceleration that doesn't just happen. Glad this kid is taking advantage of his opportunities!

    It's a truth - even in the workplace. If I left my Department, The Department would simply move another person into the spot and not even miss me.
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.
