Default Sean McHugh

This guy is a hell of a lead blocker . . . have to give props to Arians for lining him up at FB, because watching the game he was absolutely destroying LBs all over the place.

Carey Davis played pretty well too, but I think we've found a genuine Steeler role player in McHugh.

It was good to see some plays last night that we had a fullback in the backfield that was getting back to some steeler football the running game looked alot better then it had been.

Early on I thought this guy was a very good pickup for the team. He may not be the best lead blocker, but he is the best we've had since the FB position became more of the H-back position. He has shown the ability to do exactly what is expected from that position in this style of offense.

Position flexibility, is what Tomlin calls it. And we've got a couple of guys in McHugh and MeMo that have performed well in the roles they've been called upon to play. Excellent FA pickups by the team that does nothing in FA.

Good teams dont have to do alot in free agency. We bring in players who can assume certain roles. Its the Steeler way.

Yup, I love the idea of McHugh lining up in the I with Russell or Moore on short yardage. He is a much better blocker than Carey Davis.

He did block well last night, but i don't care who we need to have a run blocker full back on run plays.
We ran the ball with single back formations and was stuffed up the middle, but on three plays were Memo had a blocker he ran for 10Yd, 5yd, and 13yd.
