    Tim Benz: Understanding what ‘Benny Snell Football’ should be for Steelers

    In a three-minute interview posted on Steelers.com, Steelers rookie running back Benny Snell refers to himself in the third person three times.

    OK. Just so long as Benny Snell realizes that Benny Snell is still third string.

    For now.

    “Benny Snell football could be second (down) and 3 (yards to go),” Snell explained this weekend at rookie minicamp.

    “Third and 3. It could be fourth and 2. It could be third and goal. Fourth and goal. Or it could be four-minute offense. You just have to run the clock out to win the game. It’s just feeding him. Let him run it up. He’s going to get up. He’s going to dance a little bit. He’s going to do it again. Everybody in the stadium, both teams, know what’s happening.”

    That less-than-bashful explanation of what “Benny Snell Football” is — based on a question about his fourth-quarter stomp-out performance of Penn State in the Citrus Bowl in January — continued to feed what has become a developing narrative about what the Kentucky product should be for the Steelers this year: a circa 2005 Jerome Bettis closer of a running back.

    I don’t buy it. At least not in 2019. For many reasons.

    It sounds like he is full of himself.

    So Benny refers to himself as Benny?

    “George is getting mad!!!”

    Re: Tim Benz: Understanding what ‘Benny Snell Football’ should be for Steelers

    Benz opinion below doesnt make much sense to me.

    To me, “Benny Snell Football” should be about replicating James Conner when Conner isn’t available. Not replacing Conner late in games.

    Replacing Conner when Conner isn't available, seems to be advocating that the Steelers just feed Conner and not spell him with some reps of another back. Why run a guy until he is on the injury report, rather than run 2 or 3 guys and all of them being healthy? I'm interested in seeing how Snell is in pass protection. Read some reports that he will shine there. Could be a 3rd and short guy that can go play action to stay in and protect, or catch a screen.

    Ugh, Daniel cannot stand people who refer to themselves in 3rd person. Daniel is annoyed.

    Did Benz actually say anything? I’m still trying to figure that out.

    Judging by his 40 time, he plays at a Snell's pace
