    Cap Class: If Ben Roethlisberger Canít Play in 2020, the Steelers are Screwed

    By G.Stryker SteelerNation.com Cap Class is a series where I break down the cap to find the amounts associated with the roster, dead money, or future cost of players. Dollar amounts and cap costs may not be exciting, but they can be interesting when you look inside the numbers. I will place explanations inside of […]

    Great write up "G." And thank you.


    I didn't realize BEN's cap was structured that way but then again I'm not a caprologist either. It's amazing how the STEELERS tie so much into an aging players last contract. I understand the importance of BEN's contract but it seems we are tied to tight to often and its aging player's contracts that are the problem. Like I said I'm not the expert but would like to know how other teams pale in comparison to our situation.

    I do know the Chiefs are going to be in for a HUGE surprise in cap management hence Mahomes comes due.

    Maybe, and it's a big maybe, they can work something out with Ben to push the roster bonus due date back till sometime in the Summer. Kinda like they did when they forced Boswell to push it back last year. Only, without the "forced" part

    This year is fucked for capologists. With no CBA in place 2021 is potentially an uncapped year. Problem is though, there are no post June 1st designations for any team, so any person cut, you have to account for all of their dead money this season.

    Cope, you need to get an interview with Colbert. Have him explain the goals, and this no cap situation and dead me net. Do it man , you can make it happen. I believe in you.

    yea - an odd year for sure. Hopefully they will come to a new CBA agreement without too much fuss.

    If they cancel the season even partially due to greed which would be the only way something isn't ironed out I will be moving on from watching football.

    slash, I'm pretty close myself but want to see how and what the CBA plays out as. Now another VERY important factor for me is how the 2nd spygate is handled. CAUGHT red handed in the act.................. I know it will be minimized but it best be something like a 1st rounder +

    Oh and billie should be BANNED for life and owner forced to sell.

    The 2020 season was screwed as soon as it was decided to keep the coaching staff intact....

    If you notice, we’ve been going down as we’ve replaced each assistant coach. Fitchner, Serrett , Butler are all inferior to their predecessors. And since Tomlin can’t hire or fire anybody, that falls on Colbert. We need better assistant coach’s.

    If you think the Rooney’s then you’ve been smoking something. Colbert is the guy who is involved in the hiring and firings of assistants.

    Tomlin is involved as well. He even coached with some of them before he came here. There is no way Colbert is hiring assistants all by himself.

    Tomlin hires all of the coaches. Colbert doesn't have any say in that stuff.

    That’s absolute bull. Tomlin does not hire & fire. Which is why he couldn’t get rid of Haley when he wanted to or LeBeau. It had to be approved by Colbert.

    You go find one shred of evidence that Colbert does the hiring and firing of the assistants. Good luck with that.
