Stevenson Sylvester
 
Is all of the talk of one our pressing needs being at inside lineback an indication that the coaches do not regard Sylvester as a player that can start in the future? Obviously it's difficult for us as fans to know the full story since we have only seen glimpses of him since he's been on the team. From what I've seen, he seems active on special teams and his one start this year (against NE for Farrior) was as a part of perhaps our finest effort of the season. He must be missing something, however, if he is not mentioned as a candidate for the classic Steeler in-house replacement for a departing veteran. At any rate, whether or not we draft a young ILB, can we expect to see a Foote/Sylvester platoon next to Timmons this season, or something else?

I really don't want to see Foote starting. I was happy the day he left and dreaded the day they re-signed him

jeebus dude...:doh: ....did you not hear Mikey T ? "the steelers don't have backups...they have starters in waiting" .....
it's a steeler tradition to keep "starters in waiting" on the roster, feed the fans BS about how pleased they are with their progress , until the waiting period is over and its time for them to "step up"...then they cut em... (ala tony hills):hatsoff:

He will start.....soon. Foote is a short term player.

Well if Sylvester is not the Answer then in 2010 Colbert wasted 3 picks on LB when he didn't really need to, and could have started the OL rebuilding process sooner and more robustly than just taking 1 center

I always heard that the coaching staff was really high on him his rookie season. Maybe he got lazy this past season? I know the few times I have seen him I was impressed. I would love to see him starting. I guess if we go with Hightower in the first round then we will have our answer then.

Yeah that could end up being very bad. Worilds wasn't even considered a 2nd round pick and raised some eyebrows. Sylvester looked awesome at Utah but here hasn't shown it.

What worried me about Sylvester and Worilds is they did not dominate in the preseason last year. When you see a guy has something they usually dominate those preseason games. If they're having trouble against 3rd stringers?
