love him or hate him, steeler or not, i think he has potential to be a starter in this league for many years to come. some people just take more time to develop and mature than those who come from national championship type programs.
Not to mention how everyone was laughing and applauding our two LB's in the mid 90's who destroyed 3rd string QB's... even while Cowher was yelling and screaming at them...
Funny how things change so fast.
