Do not over-react to news
If you follow people on Twitter, find beat writers or national reporters that support their information. Has that writer been following the team for years with an ear to ownership or the coaching staff? Sometimes they could be getting the information spoon fed to them with some alternative motives, look into it and don’t trust blindly. Unless I’m hearing it directly from Adam Schefter or Steelers beat writer that I trust, I tend to wait for official word to come out.
