Steelers notebook: 'Statuesque' Bears QB Mike Glennon impresses Mike Tomlin

Steelers notebook: 'Statuesque' Bears QB Mike Glennon impresses Mike Tomlin

DE Akiem Hicks has two sacks.

"I have a lot of respect for his talents", Tomlin said.

The court of public opinion holds a ton of weight, especially at home games when tens of thousands of season ticket holders are frustrated to their necks with Mike Glennon's performances so far.

When I spoke with outside linebackers coach Joey Porter in training camp, he said at some point they would need to see Harrison on the field to make sure he still could play. "He has physical traits you can't coach".

"He's a great anticipator, and you can see that when you watch his tape". Their O/U is 1-6 in their last 7 games following an ATS loss, 11-5 in their last 16 September games, and 1-4 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Rookie Tarik Cohen (6.4 yards per carry) offers an exciting change of pace but is most effective as a complementary piece rather than an every-down back. Glennon, though, has an 81.2 passer rating that ranks No. 21. "Those anticipation throwers often are hard to get after".

"I'd imagine he's grown and grown in positive ways since (2014)". Chicago has won the past two contests, and Pittsburgh is seeking its first win at Soldier Field since 1995.

S&P downgrades China's credit ratings
The downgrade comes at a particularly awkward time for China's leaders, just weeks ahead of China's Communist Party Congress. I hope that later this year China lowers its GDP growth target to 6 percent to 6.5 percent, or not have one at all.

Same goes for Week 5: Although 4-1, the Steelers lost at 1-4 Miami past year, a team that rallied to capture a wild-card berth. "And quite frankly, we're too fragile, we're too new in this team development process in terms of searching for consistency and an acceptable level of play to take any other approach".

The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to be pleased with their early returns on investment in their 2017 first-round draft pick, outside linebacker T.J.

"All have a chance to play", Tomlin said.

According to Mike Prisuta he described himself as day-to-day, but being able to participate in practice immediately, even on a limited basis, is a good sign. Gilbert exited in the fourth quarter for the final 15 offensive snaps. Fantasy Tip: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could be in for big game against Chicago's shaky secondary.

"I think ultimately you're always looking for ways to improve, and when things don't go well, then you're ultimately going to look in the mirror and figure out what I can do better", Glennon said. "Some teams out there are playing significant ball on the defensive side and are getting turnovers in bunches". We've got a good test for us.
