I think it's a pretty darn good pick - no complaints. I think he will be very good as one of the bookend LBs in the 3-4, and his versatility could, in the future, allow the Steelers to run multiple defensive fronts ala the Ravens and use him like the Rats used Adalius Thomas. Plus, they are woefully thin at LB and needed some quality depth.

Now, I can take the rest of the day off :grin:

I think Timmons fits our scheme better then posluzny. I can see him falling sorta far. Maybe even into the second

I was pushing for pos a lot because the Steelers were considering going 4-3 and Pos is a juggernaut for 4-3 Defenses.

But Timmons can also play in the 4-3, so it's no big deal. Plus, Timmons is a better all-around athlete than Pozlusny, and you have to factor that in.

A lot of folks may now have remorse over Revis going right before the Steelers picked because the Jets traded up, but the Steelers budget for CB was tapped when Taylor was signed last year.

Steelers are drafting for need this time and OLB and OL are the needs. Might have traded down and been able to get the same player later, but Timmons is a safe pick.

Both of those teams won the Super Bowl playing the Cover 2 defense. And if they do eventually switch to the 4-3, why is that such a big problem? I personally don't care what defense they run, so long as it's good, hard-hitting and helps us win games.

Because Steelers fans don't have any patience. That's why. Remember - many of these same fans wanted to run Troy Polamalu out of town after his rookie season and declared him a bust. Some of them also want to run Ben Roethlisberger out of town after one bad season.

Mr. Hall, welcome to the Bengals. On the right you will see the training room, while on the left the press room.Look behind and there is coaches office. Now if you walk past the coaches office and take a left to the next office, you will see the probation office. You'll need to go there first to be assigned a probation officer. Also at this time you need to select your choice for community service, for future reference.

As we also did in the 70's. (As i'm sure you know that Dungy's cover 2 is simply another variation of Knoll's)

A switch to this defense and it's 'eventual' results are not what i have a problem with. It's a matter of Tomlin attempting to 'rush' into such a change and causing him to 'reach' for players like Timmons that gives me pause.

IMHO, the Timmons pick is driven more by his abilty and personnel need at LB than scheme. My guess is that the FO views LT as being another one of those players that "defy scheme", and that he will be an impact player sooner than later (definitely before the offical switch to the 4-3). I dont think this pick signals a rush to the 4-3. No one player could dictate that.

Yes, I know the Cover 2 is a variation of the Steel Curtain defense. But would you have said this if they drafted Posluzny, who was the popular pick at least in this thread?


Yes i would have XT. As i believe that neither Timmons or Poz were worth a 15th pick. We could have traded down and aquired more picks and still landed one of them.
The only backer in this Draft IMO whom was worth going in the top half of the first was Willis. (Which he did)

That being said i do believe Poz later would have been the better choice as opposed to Timmons. Whom IMO is Tomlins poor attempt to emulate Dungy and try to aquire a guy whom he mistakenly believes to be 'something like' Derick Brooks. LOL

It's going to suck for us to have to watch the coming meltdown at the Linebacker position. But i must admit that it will be funny to watch Tomlin bit his bottom lip and attempt to explain to the press and fans as to why Timmons "has'nt panned out" and or "Is having difficulty adjusting to the pro game" or why the team doesn't seem to be reponding to his judgement as a leader.

That being said i do believe Poz later would have been the better choice as opposed to Timmons. Whom IMO is Tomlins poor attempt to emulate Dungy and try to aquire a guy whom he mistakenly believes to be 'something like' Derick Brooks. LOL

It's going to suck for us to have to watch the coming meltdown at the Linebacker position. But i must admit that it will be funny to watch Tomlin bit his bottom lip and attempt to explain to the press and fans as to why Timmons "has'nt panned out" and or "Is having difficulty adjusting to the pro game" or why the team doesn't seem to be reponding to his judgement as a leader.

if its such a bad pick, who would you have wanted us to take?

Yes i would have XT. As i believe that neither Timmons or Poz were worth a 15th pick. We could have traded down and aquired more picks and still landed one of them.
The only backer in this Draft IMO whom was worth going in the top half of the first was Willis. (Which he did)

As for Timmons, I don't think he was worth a 15 rounder, but I still think he does have talent and think we did a good job there. Something tells me he might be in the running for the starting spot at linebacker, but we'll see in training camp how we really works.

IF he is in the running for a starting LB position on the Steelers, how can you say he wasn't worth the 15th pick?

1. You have to have somebody willing to trade up (Cleveland will not give Pittsburgh their #1 pick in 2008 that is for sure)
2. You have to assume the Steelers even think they need a 1st round corner (I think Ike and McFadden will be starters for years to come)

isn't meriwether one of the players that was tagged as a problem child? The analyst sya his shoulder may be trouble, he has tore it up several times already. Hard to be a hard hitting safety with a bad shoulder.

Lets be honest here - all those questions you have raised are likely to have been covered by the Patriots and their scouting team.

Obviously the Patriots don't think he is going to have a problem 'hitting' of they would have burnt their top pick on him.

Problem child stuff is BS to be quite honest - one tear up doesn't single you out as a problem child.

I would like to see the Steelers take C Ryan Kalil in the 2nd I also think that the Cards are having a pretty nice draft under Whiz and Co. But I think the biggest winners so far are the Brownies.......

the philadelphia eages select kevin kolb from houston

this is a bad move for the eagles because they dont need a qb, and he is definitely not the third best available. A third-forth round talent who flourished in a spread offense with good receivers.

it's not that he's particularly bad, its just not a postion of need, and he wasn't the best qb available.
