    I tend to view WR the same way Leels views RB. Yeah, AJ makes Dalton seem functional and you could have taken Parker at 12, but I think you would have been better served to get Rashad Greene in the 4th. He's basically AB lite.


    I like Amos as a guy to groom to take over Will Allen's roll.

    My take on Dupree? Bad eyes, low FBI, lousy motor. Maybe I'm wrong (hope I am) and he'll be Stud Dupree instead of Dud Dupree. Time will tell. If we were hell bent on taking a LB, I would have preferred Diggy in the 2nd. !st after 1st after 1st at the same position is just dumb and a poor allocation of resources.
    I think the million 1st round LBs comes from a) Jarvis showing nothing yet and b)the way the board ended up. Not to mention Harrison's age, Foote getting cut, and Woodley getting fat, hurt, then cut. I was thinking it would have been better to wait, but with no top tier CBs and both Dupree and Ray there, what are you gonna do? I look for a lot of rotating players at OLB this year, as they only want Harrison in 25 snaps a game, Jones may or may not suck, Dupree is raw, and Moats is just "nice". The ILBs should be legit, and I look for the DL to improve as well, with Tuitt getting more experience, Heyward being Heyward, McClendon now having to hold off big Dan, who is apparently is in fantastic shape for a big man. The secondary is still a question mark, but finally has some quality youth. The defense just has to be good enough, though; the Steelers are an offensive team now, and have the firepower to outscore most teams.

      Yeah. **** the Browns for taking my NT, **** the Texans for taking my CB, and **** the Jags for taking my OG.

      • Pettine declared McCown as the starter. So, week 6 will be the return of Johnny Football, right?

        • You think it will take McCown that long to defecate himself on the field?

            No but I could see Pettine taking his time taking a hard workin' vet off the field for the douche bag young guy.

                    • Just found out from Bob Labriola of Steelers.com that the team did, in fact, reach out to La'el Collins and his camp to indicate they were interested.

                      I feel much better now. Ok, I feel a little better now.

                        I think all 32 teams probably checked out Collins. A plug and play 1st round lineman at a reduced price? Sign me the **** up. But, he chose Dallas.

                            It wouldn't have surprised me in the least if we didn't. As I said before, I've lost a lot of confidence in Tolbert.

                              It's 4 months until the opener.

                              The NFL won't take that long to rule on the appeal, and if Brady wants to try and take the NFL to court? Subpoena for all electronic communications incoming.

                                Well that depends on the law and what phone he used and etc.

                                there have been other suspensions served 2 near 3 years later due to court appeals already. Brady has like 100x the money those guys have and a bigger ego. i fully expect this to be a cluster**** of long time in court. Brady retires before court.

                                NFL and 4 months is nothing. They have routinely timed these things strategically, and they know this will be a multi year battle.

                                We will see. i will be shocked by anything less than a full year deferment
