Let's get to:
HERSCHEL DINKINS OF POUGHKEEPSIE, NY: Will Trey Edmunds's promotion to 53-man squad be missing significant playing time? So far in the depths, has Jaylen Samuels now run our No. 1 back?
ANSWER: I do not know for sure at this point, but my guess would be that the roster movement made on going back would suggest it. James Conner is expected to miss more than one game, but I do not think that even that Medical staff at this point certainly knows how many more than one of them will be. The remainder of this practice week and, more importantly, the results during the game against the Raiders, determine the depth graphics when running back during the absence of Conner.
BRIAN DONOHUE OF WHITE PLAINS, MD: In the midst of the deserved uproar over officiating service, I have barely mentioned that Chris Boswell's missing extra point, which I maintain had an impact on the loss. While there was a point in a three-point loss when the Steelers went up 24-7, the Chargers probably will not go two for their two extra point attempts. What's going on at Boswell this year, and are the Steelers thinking about a change now or possibly in the off-season?
ANSWER: Chris Boswell has missed his fifth extra point of 201
JAMES GARRETT OF PAGOSA SPRINGS, CO: Your comment that fans' opinions about the quality of the NFL's office have no weight in the league is interesting, but your answer would be the same if the question is with television viewers instead deals? [19659003Response:IRespectfullyRespectYourAssistenceofAtlongNaturalandNothashashashashashashashashashashashashasbeeninteractedinFromNFLscanviewoftheassociationofFansamSportshashashashashashistoryofviewservicedbyMichaelDavidSmithandappearedin28NovemberonProFootballTalkcom:
"At Thanksgiving, all three games had more viewers this year than last year. The early game in Detroit rose 7 percent over the previous year, the late afternoon game in Dallas 16 percent over last year and the prime time game 28 percent over the previous year.
"Last Monday, ESPN scored 18 percent more viewers than the 12th week. On Sunday night NBC scored 8 percent more viewers than last year.
"The NFL's only eight NFL broadcast window, prior to the 12th week last year, was the afternoon game for FOX, down 5 percent. The loss of FOX was the gain of CBS. The early game at CBS rose 26 percent year-on-year and the late afternoon game at CBS rose 19 percent year-on-year.
"The NFL is now comfortably ahead of last year's level and the stories of the league's decline in TV ratings are beginning to feel like a distant memory."
DAVE EMERY VON PITTSBURGH, PA: Has Mike Tomlin made a fatal error if James Conner does not have sufficient backup and is supposed to have Le & Veon Bell at some point?
ANSWER: How do you know that Stevan Ridley and / or Jaylen Samuels are not sufficiently filled? in the time when James Conner has to recover from his non-season injury? And did you believe in your wildest dreams that Le'Veon Bell will lose $ 14.5 million if you suspend a full season? I am certainly not.
NATE FERRICK VON PITTSBURGH, PA: Should the Steelers track Kelvin Benjamin, who sees that he was recently released from the bills? Could add this powerful receiver to our grave offense.
ANSWER: I'll start with some facts about Kelvin Benjamin's career, and then I'll leave it to the media to report on his teams. Benjamin was selected for the Carolina Panthers in the first round in 2014, finishing the race with 1,008 yards as rookie in 2014 and another 941 in 2016, after a battered ACL had cost the 2015 season. His quarterback in Carolina was Cam Newton, who was once voted NFL MVP, but he criticized Newton for Tim Graham of The Athletic: "If you could match me with another quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"
Benjamin was then traded to Buffalo for the third and seventh election break, and this was written by Leo Roth of Rochester Democrat and Chronicle on December 4:
"Almost from the beginning of the season, Buffalo Bill's coach Sean McDermott was asked if Kelvin Benjamin's efforts and attitude are widespread. The fallen passports, the half-hearted efforts for less perfect throw wounds, jogging in the field.
"" Sometimes. But not always. Sometimes, "McDermott said on October 3, when asked about Benjamin's efforts. "I would say the same thing with all our offense. Sometimes I see it and sometimes it's not good enough. "Not good enough," Benjamin finally got to make his jogging, um, running papers. "
If someone put a gun to my head and put me to the ballot If I added Benjamin or Martavis Bryant, I'd be Bryant take immediately.
ISRAEL CATANO OF ARTESIA, CA: When the Steelers blocked the Chargers on Sunday night, I believe there was some kind of review, and during that review, the broadcasting team brought along an ex-official, and he stated that there was a check because Jaylen Samuels had touched the ball and that it was live.
ANSWER: When a blocked punt crosses the scrimmage line, it is treated the same as any other punt that crosses the scrimmage line. That means: it can not be advanced by the shooting team; If the kick team touches it, it is dead at this point. It can be returned by the return team; and if it is touched by the second leg and not possessed, it is a live ball.
IAN DRIPS OF WATAUGA, TX: Do you think it would be a good idea to have an eighth officer in the cabin waiting for undisclosed missed calls? They could bumm and inform the umpire within seconds and make the call correctly.
ANSWER: That sounds good, but adding another man to the crew could cause the eighth man to justify his presence to the eighth man, who wants to influence the game instead of just intervening when needed. In many cases, more is not better, and I believe that no more civil servants would be better in all cases.
CALLE MOORE OF ARLINGTON, VA: When a quarterback kneels towards the end of a half, even though his knee is lowered, he was not touched by a defender. Is not the game still alive at this time?
ANSWER: In the NFL, a player can "give up" the ball at any location on the field, and the game is dead at that point. It is not necessary for a defender to touch it. A quarterback who breaks down and kneels the bang is recognized as giving himself up.
