McNabb hasn't been conditioning or anything though. He wouldn't be game ready for weeks.

Dwyer all day! He proves himself game after game. Yet, Haley and Tomlin are stuck to Mendenhalls junk by their lips. IDK what thats all about.

If you start in 3 games and run for over 100yards each game...and you are not a starter?...then you need to think about playing for another team...

McNabb plays a lot of pick up basketball these days. May not take him too long.

Yeah that is an epidemic on the Steelers. Heyward is outplaying both Keisel and Hood. Worilds is outplaying Harrison. McLendon is outplaying Hampton. At least Allen is finally above Mundy on the depth chart.

Seems obvious now that Lewis should have been given the nod over Gay much sooner as well. I think Spencer would have seen some decent playing time had he been healthy. I don't think I'll ever get a chance to see if Sylvester could be a starting ILB.

He couldn't be any fatter than Ben was two years ago.

Before I get fired on from all sides for saying Worilds is outplaying Harrison I think Harrison is the best OLB the Steelers have ever had. That is quite a statement considering Ham (4-3 OLB but OLB nonetheless), Greene, Lloyd and Porter have been exceptional players. Just imagine though if Harrison had been given the nod sooner and bookended the line with Peezy in place of Haggans. The window of excellence for NFL players is so small you have to give guys a shot early. If a player has a lot of upside I think it is worth the risk. Trial by fire.

I really want Heyward to start. I think he could be the next Richard Seymour. I think he is going to be a really special player.

Yeah it was an agonizing couple of years watching Gay fail week in and week out. Then in his final season with the Steelers he was finally serviceable right before being shipped out never to be heard from again.

No one caught this.

I think Dwyer is amazing... but, I get tired of seeing him "tap out" after two consecutive run plays.

If he could get in shape, he'd be the obvious starter; as it is, I think the RB-by-commitee is the best way to go.
