After this... dude just needs to go. This is just absolutely 💯% inexcusable.

Yeah I saw that live in real-time during the game. Later I saw Tomlin ripping him a new one.

Here's hoping they trade him as soon as they can. That's if they don't outright release him mid-season.

mid season is already gone DJ needs to go... 2829330259 but yeah...i'd definitely look to trade him come draft time. i would take carolinas 33rd or arizonas 34th pick for him (assuming they are picking at the top}. arizona has a shit ton of picks stock piled.

I don't get this dude's attitude. I understood being frustrated after the Browns game, I think everyone on the team was and the fanbase was beyond fed up. But to come out here the game after, when the offense is actually playing well and to put up tape where you're just literally standing around and making zero effort while the ball is fumbled right next to you like that? That's inexcusable. If I'm Tomlin I'd put his ass on the bench for at least a half of the next game just to make a point. Bench the vet and show the rest of the team that that kind of crap isn't going to be tolerated.

Then there's the whole argument debacle with Minkah on top of that as well. Of course the team is trying to play that off like it wasn't a big deal but there's kind of a pattern of issues developing with DJ. TBH DJ really doesn't have room to be criticizing the team, or taking plays off when he drops as many passes as he does. Take a look in the mirror before you start pointing fingers at anyone else.

I've been saying this since last season. He must talk a good game to Tomlin or caught him eating twinkies and threatened to tell Mrs. Tomlin. The longer they wait the more his issues get exposed and the less likely it is that they get anything for him. If Tomlin doesn't want to deal with his stupidity start talking trades because to me his dumbass is expendable.

Hopefully he learns his lesson and performs well for the rest of the year ... then his trade value goes up. He's extremely talented, but he's obviously not that bright (seems to be the only WR not on the same page with Kenny) and lazy. He needs to adjust his attitude or risk being viewed as a cancer on this team.

Welcome back, Kirkland! Glad to see you back on the forum.

DJ is reminding me more of Antonio Brown every day. I think an off-season trade is in the offing. I don't think we will get more than about a 3rd round from him but time will tell. He's obviously not a team player though.

I agree with benching him next game, at least for a half or so. Let's see what Calvin and the others can bring to the table. Honestly, I think right now, after viewing the last game and seeing what Sullivan has rung up, Kenny's top target now is MUTH. Pickens still has big play ability as well. I want to see Calvin get some looks.

WR is a big problem for this team and one we can't afford. Outside of DJ and Pickens we simply have no one who has shown anything. I mean Robinson has 185 yards this season and Austin III 170. And both DJ and Pickens are diva's and cause sideline problems every 3 weeks or so. We need to deal DJ this offseason (hopefully) but that means we need at least 2 new quality WR's and we still have to cope with Pickens, which isn't ideal.

So we need to invest in WR, while we also need a C, a CB opposite of Joey, a true NT, an OT and actually a better safety next to Minkah and a better slot CB too.

I agree with your assessment Stella but I'm holding out hope that Benton can be a true nose tackle and I think Thompson could be the Safety we need. If Pickens can grow up and live up to his potential he could be a once in a generation WR. First he has to learn how to separate. I don't think that he doesn't know how as much as he loves the combat/highlight catches.

I'm afraid Pickens will always be a headcase. He already was like that in college (it's the reason he dropped to us, other teams passed on him cause of his character issues) and is with us too. And he even isn't paid yet, I don't want us to be the team that gives him a hugh contract to find out that he turns into a complete lunatic.

For sure. From what I've seen the WR in the 2024 draft looks deep with tall guys. The one rank I saw shows in the top 11 not one is under 6'. It wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit if we deal both DJ and GP if it's a good deal for us. I think if we could get a second round pick out of it we could replace them both. One in the second and the other in the third. Like MOP said they all seem to be divas anymore. The guy I'd love to see us get is Marvin Harrison Jr. Not gonna happen I know but a man can wish.

I love Marvin Harrison Jr, he's a great kid! No diva action from him either. But he's probably going #2 in the draft (he is the best overall player in college football. But we all know a QB is going first.)

I disagree slightly with your plan, though, I think we dump DJ this offseason, free up capital. But I think we hold on to Pickens this next year. He's still on his rookie deal, he's pretty good, and - I don't think I'd count on two rookie WR's to start in one year. So, deal DJ this offseason, decide on Pickens in a year. That's how I would play it. I think we can get a 3rd rounder out of DJ. Maybe a 2nd rounder from a dumb team.

Center #1.
Center #1.
Center #1.

I also think Benton is going to be our NT. Maybe he grows into it (snack style?). We obviously have other needs too, but that's the direction I'd go.

I don't believe we need to go Center in Round 1. Van Pran is the #1 Center and he is being projected as giong in rd#2 and even rd#3 by some prognosticators. I think if we go RT #1 and Center #2 they can go WR in rd 3 or trade DJ for a 2nd round pick and get a WR in RD 2 with the trade of they can get it.

I agree with you. WR at times has been such a Steeler strength but really needs some upgrading now. Ben made the WRs around him better but there were still some good ones along the way. Unfortunately WRs often come with attitude. You think back to around 2010 when we had a pretty good WR room with Ward, Wallace, young Sanders and AB, and even end of career El. But, as soon as you look at the list you start thinking of the problems AB became and Wallace was. Hopefully they can do some rebuilding off season.

It seems like ya gotta draft at least one WR every draft. Just seems to be the nature of it.

I think there's a difference between DJ and Pickens. Pickens seems to really care about what's happening with the team and his teammates. Does he pout, sure. But you want a WR (and RB) who wants the ball and will let you know he's not happy when he doesn't get it. DJ seems to not know his routes, drops passes, and obviously puts in less effort when he's not the target. It's a shame, because I think he has far more potential than what he's showing. IMO the only difference between DJ and AB is the amount of effort put into the craft outside of games.

I don't know which of the two idiots at WR I want to get rid of first.

Maybe we can send both of them packing as a gift to the Commanders or another desperate team in the offseason.

At this point Johnson and Pickens are feeding off each other. There is no one to set an example.

Pickens didn't block on Warren's run and said: I ain't want to get an injury. Unreal

That's on Tomlin. That's on the WR Coach. That's on the Offense's leadership (if there is any) and Veterans which goes back to the Coaches for not promoting leadership and accountability.

Tomlins approach and choices have come back to bite him on the ass. Pickens coming out of College was known to be immature. They gambled and lost... trade him before its to late and get some picks for your bad choice.

It's hard to get injured on the bench. The season is all but over anyway. I'd like to see him ball out these last 3 games to give us trade bait.
