    Sounds like JuJu is ready for his comeback year.

    I knew JuJu was working out but thought he was doing it on his own. I was very much mistaken. Dude is taking things real seriously.

    I love this quote at the end.

    “The strength? Let me just say, these little cornerbacks that are 5-9, 5-8, or whatever, I can quote this: Y’all got your hands full. I promise they’re going to have their hands full.”

    I thought he was in pretty good shape before. Then, Calliet said JuJu never had abs before but he does now.

    I can't get the article to load due to me NOT being a registered user, even though for free I chose not to register.

    His posted pic is awesome credibility of his strength. I see JuJu having a big year as QB play will be at a higher level than last year. Randy Fictner should also be playing at a higher level as OC than last year as well, I'm trusting Canada will be stepping Fitchner up.

    I feel like Ju Ju might have caught himself picking up some bad habits from a couple of his former mentors who are no longer on the team and was smart enough to get it together and refocus. I can't blame him really.....he had horrific mentors. The worst you could have really.

    He was and is. Only thing holding James back is injuries.I love his passion, drive, and of course his story. Never have any issues rooting him on, a good man.

    GIVE me a couple examples of his "mentor induced bad behavior". I've seen nothing but good character from JuJu even at the point of his "mentor's" expense.

    Last year's play was a product of many things including injury / OC / QB plat / amongst OL / team injury / ect..

    JuJu has been pretty dang good as a STEELERS player and advocate. I'll take ten of him any day, but not all of them at WR.

    I wasn't thinking about him doing anything bad necessarily.....I was thinking more about getting complacent. Of course, all stats from last season have to go out the window to some degree considering the QB situation. Maybe I'm seeing something that wasn't there.

    Most of this stuff is mental edge. Juju wasn't all ripped up when he broke into this league and did plenty fine. He had a down year because all of the reasons listed, though becoming a one may not have been. If this trainer can produce durability well that is something, but as I've said here a million times, I have a lot of concern about over powering your joints and ligaments. The trainer talked about making him into a performance sports car. Well try running a Porsche down a gravel grid road sometime. I'm extremely skeptical of "Faster". To me you have a speed. And you can track train it for straight line speed, but what you really need in football is pre requisite straight line speed and agility. Bottom line I've always liked Juju. He is one of my favorites. I hope he has an awesome year, stays healthy and Holds on to the Ball!!! But regardless, I don't really see him as a Steeler beyond this season. I think its Last Dance for him. He will get paid elsewhere if he has a good year. But you got too much invested in defense that is going to get paid. You have three young cheap receivers for another three after this. Doesn't add up to a long term deal for Juju in Pittsburgh and I think if a 1 was offered, the Steelers maybe should have went that way.

    I don't know Supersteeler but I haven't seem any indications of him picking up any bad habit from the diarrhea twins. If anything I think he helped offset their character. I hope I'm right and you're wrong but NOT in an "I told you so" sort of way.

    Here's to SB champions and yet still able to sign JuJu looooooooong term.

    While AB went full on crazy in the personal life arena, nobody can ever criticize his work ethic and practice regiment. If you're looking for a performance/practice mentor, you'd be hard pressed to find somebody better than AB. He likely made Jerry Rice look lazy.

    Course that was apparently due to a serious sociopathic need to be loved and respected as the greatest ever. Once he reached a level of adulation that essentially peaked as it was so ridiculously high, he couldn't climb any higher and he started to derail. He was a like a heroin addict that had built up such a tolerance that the love and respect he was getting just couldn't sustain him anymore.
