spent two first-round picks on the unit in recent years.

Plex is more motivated to produce than at any time in his career.
He also no longer takes things for granted, and that improved

Thanks for confirming my assumption you really do think the Steelers should have pulled strings to find $3 million for Burress

And please get back to me when the geniuses in the Jets front office confirm their superiority to the chumps in the Steelers front office after the Jets win 2 Super Bowls and play in 3 in a six year stretch
