Brent Jones led the NFL in DVOA twice and DYAR three times during the San Francisco 49ers glory days. But was he an all-time great and pioneer at the tight end position or simply at the right place at the right time? The answer lies somewhere in between.
The 2020 Steelers may have started 11-0, but it was an unimpressive unbeaten streak, boosted by fortune and weak opposition. The end-of-year collapse was less surprising than the sudden and sharp decline of Ben Roethlisberger, who returns after a pay cut for one more run at a title. But the 2021 Steelers lack depth and experience at key positions, especially at cornerback and the offensive line. Unless the defense, led by the league’s pass rush, can carry Big Ben, his career may end with a whimper. – Rob Weintraub.
