"Roethlisberger, Tuesday on his 93.7 The Fan radio spot, suggested that Smith-Schuster could play more on the outside to give Martavis Bryant a break Sunday in Kansas City while Rogers plays in the slot."
So much for JuJu can't replace MB. They are making JuJu plays inside and outside, it's very wise to pick him up now just incase he blows up.
MB runs 30 yard routes every other play and needs a break. You must have missed "to give him a break part". Guys can't run 30 yard sprints continuously all day without stepping off the field. JuJu will NOT be called on to run the same routes as MB even if he is on the field for him. It will be a different package of players and plays. They are completely different types of players with different strengths and weakness. Have you even watched a Steeler game with JuJu in it?
JuJu has Eli Rodgers 2016 upside. Which is great for a rookie and I love his potential. JuJu is more Hines Ward than MB and that is what you will see in the future. You didn't see Hines Ward "replace" Plex when he left. He didn't start running his position all the sudden but started performing like a #1.
I think you missed my point.
I would take JuJu because he is more consistent, but in no way do I expect him to be catching 50 yard bombs like MB did when he came on the scene.
