The Steelers were back on the gridiron Antworten

for their first official day of training camp Mike Hilton Jersey , and we’ve got the recap for you!" Latest NewsSteelers 2019 Training Camp Recap: The backup quarterback quarterback carousel begins to turnNew,18commentsThe Steelers were back on the gridiron for their first official day of training camp, and we’ve got the recap for you!EDTThe Pittsburgh Steelers have had two training camp practices under their belt now, and while it is still considered “football in shorts”, the team has had plenty of news coming from these workouts. It is a great way to get everyone acclimated, but also a tremendous opportunity to get some players quality repetitions who might not get those reps any other time. There might not be any position which better exemplifies this more than at the backup quarterback position.While not for a starting position, the battle between Mason Rudolph and Joshua Dobbs for the QB2 role on the depth chart has been discussed for months. As expected, Dobbs was given the primary backup role on Day 1 of training camp, and Day 2 had Rudolph under center.Dobbs’ first day was rough during live 7-on-7 drills. He threw back-to-back interceptions before missing an open receiver in the end zone. Rudolph’s day was a bit better Saturday when he threw a touchdown and ran another one in during goal line drills.This isn’t to suggest Rudolphs will win the No. 2 quarterback role after one bad Dobbs practice and one decent Rudolph practice, but the revolving door at QB2 has started. It is safe to say you can expect Dobbs to move back behind Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday, and so on and so on...Needless to say, the job on the depth chart will start to take shape when the preseason games start, and fans will finally get a chance to settle the Dobbs vs. Rudolph debate once and for all.Time to hit on some other news from Day 2 at camp...Offense wins 7 shots againThe Steelers’ offense had gotten the best of the defense so far in training camp (2-0) Joe Haden Jersey , but that could change when the pads start popping.JuJu Smith-Schuster has come to play...Every practice, going back to Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and Mandatory Minicamp, JuJu Smith-Schuster has shown he has put in the work this offseason to prove all the doubters wrong.James Washington vs. Artie Burns sounds highly contestedTwo players many fans have written off, for different reasons, have been going head-to-head in training camp, and it certainly seems as if it is a good battle going on. Washington has won his, and Burns has gotten the best of Washington too. Iron sharpens iron.Injury UpdateWhile T.J. Watt continues to be a spectator at training camp with a hamstring injury, wide receiver Johnny Holton will be joining him with his own hamstring injury suffered during practice Saturday.Chris Boswell starts his journey backThey were short distance kicks, but 8-for-8 is a good step in the right direction.VIDEOSPHOTOS Once upon a time, the Steelers were defined not by their throw-it-all-over-the-yard offense, but by a defense that knew how to get after opposing quarterbacks.That’s been more reputation than reality lately, but T.J. Watt is bringing it back.According to聽Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Watt has become the first Steelers outside linebacker since 2010 to record double-digit sacks in a season Vance McDonald Jersey , the first since聽James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley.That’s almost unthinkable for a franchise that saw a steady procession of such players from the 90s forward, as Kevin Greene begat Greg Lloyd, who begat Jason Gildon, who begat Joey Porter, who begat Woodley and Harrison. It seemed like that torch would be passed, but it went cold for nearly a decade.The search for someone to continue that lineage hasn’t been for a lack of trying, as they’ve used first-rounders on Jarvis Jones and Bud Dupree in recent years, to little avail. But Watt has figured it out fast, with seven sacks as a rookie before collecting his 10th in as many games with a pair last week.鈥淎s soon as T.J. got here, he got it,鈥?Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward. 鈥淪ometimes it takes guys longer. Sometimes you鈥檙e waiting. But for T.J., to start off the way he did and have such success at an early age in his career, he鈥檚 got a jump on a lot of guys. Only time will tell Tyson Alualu Jersey , but I think the sky is the limit for him. The thing with T.J. is you have to keep challenging yourself year in and year out because he鈥檚 putting up the stats.鈥淣ow everyone will expect more and more, but your expectations have to be higher than theirs. But I know T.J. will do it. He comes from the lineage of guys who go out and outperform each other. I鈥檓 excited for where his future can end up.鈥滺e also joined a select club of players who have 17.0 sacks in their first 25 games, along with Von Miller, Terrell Suggs,聽Clay Matthews, Aldon Smith, and Shawne Merriman.鈥淚 don鈥檛 know what to make of it,鈥?Watt said. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 set goals to be in company with other people. I just set goals to be the best player that I can be. Before the season I always put out a number of goals for myself. I don鈥檛 publicize them because you never know what can happen throughout the season.鈥淎nytime you can be mentioned with that great company, it鈥檚 awesome. But I鈥檓 not satisfied at all.鈥漈he Steelers can be, knowing they may have finally hit on one of those picks trying to extend one of the most prolific positions in their history.
