Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back James Conner is confident that the team will have a big year in 2019, and believes that they have a ‘great chance’ to win the Super Bowl.

“Not guaranteeing nothing but I think we have a great chance of going all the way,” Conner said, according to NFL.com’s Kevin Petra. “That’s what we play for, that’s why we show up every day, that’s the ultimate goal, is to get a ring. I know that’s a lot of people don’t think that we can do it, with the pieces that we lost, and just counting us out. We don’t mind it, though. We know that they’re counting us out, but that’s why I said we’re going to shock them because I don’t think they expect us to do what we’re about to do this year.”

Conner’s role has been a topic of discussion, but the running back isn’t worried about any big changes.

“I’ll have a similar role. I’m healthy, first and foremost, I’m 100 percent healthy now. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there,” Conner said.

“But we got talent in that room. We got Jaylen Samuels who’s a tremendous receiver, a talented runner. We got Benny Snell. We know the work that he did at Kentucky. He’s a hard-bodied runner, so all those guys will get touches. It’ll be fun this year just seeing those other guys being successful.”
