3 Steelers X-factors vs Miami on Monday Night Football
JuJu has been off to a very slow start, but that was to be expected. Without number 84 on the team, JuJu would have to become the number one receiver on the offense.
Every Batman needs a Robin, and JuJu was a robin in his first two years. Now, in 2019, JuJu is Pittsburgh’s Batman, but he needs his Robin.
So far, the Steelers second and third wide receivers are not stepping up enough to help JuJu out. Defenses are not afraid of any other receiver on the field that doesn’t wear number 19.
JuJu has a prime opportunity to break out this week against a struggling Dolphins team. He has made a few big plays this season, but he has yet to have that one massive game.
Anytime you play a team that is struggling, you try to take advantage of that and use it as a stepping stone for your own season JuJu can feast on a weak secondary to help himself out.
If JuJu can get going, this can only help the offense get in a rhythm out of the bye week. With the defense playing the way they have as of late, the offense getting going can help make them competitive every week.
