Lemme guess he's a genius cause luckily every team passed over DeCastro and fell in our lap. Pouncey too......it's kind of hard to fuck up a first round pick but we letting one go this season cause it was a flop, anyways he ain't hitting them out of the park and most are ending up flat busts. And if he does find a decent one worth keeping we can't pay to keep him cause him and Khan are such super geniuses we can't afford a dollar scratch ticket to pay for these guys. I'd preffer Colbert over most GM's out there but some fans need a reality check....
Really? If first round picks are so easy to make, then why are certain teams like the Browns and Raiders(when they're not giving their picks away) consistently bad even though they consistently get top ten picks? How's JaMarcus Russell doing? How about Ryan Leaf? Busting on a first round pick is actually much easier than it seems.

Its going to be veteran OLB musical chairs. Whoever is left standing when the music stops will be signed by the Steelers. Freeney or Harrison and I'm fine with that.

Freeney is a 4-3 guy. He does not drop back in coverage. Not gonna work. Besides, Steelers are probably offering 5 bucks a year in salary so, its a moot point.

What about Abraham is he still available? Or is he too expensive?

I'd take Freeney in a heartbeat - over 100 sacks, over 40 forced fumbles, he can still get it done even as a situational pass rusher from the outside....beats the hell out of the lumbering bears we have upfront on the DL too.

What is the coverage responsibilities of the Steelers OLB's?? They drop back into hook/curl zones when they are not rushing or playing the run.

Tell me that Gildon, Porter, Haggans, Lloyd, Greene, Harrison, Woodley have ever been chasing tight ends or slot receivers all over the field.

Dwight Freeney is a good enough athlete to take a 3-5 step and drive back into a hook/curl zone.
