Now I will agree with you there are some Ohio State fans that are idiots but not all of us!
Ohio State fans aren't all that bad. Now, Penn State and West Virginia fans, THOSE are all idiots.

Signed, Pitt fan

I can't figure why Timmons hasn't been. Maybe it's just because he doesn't strike a flexing pose after making a play and make screaming faces at the fans. I dunno.

Pittsburgh Steelers (Last Year: 8-8)

NFL Draft Individual Grades:

15. Ryan Shazier, ILB, Ohio State: B Grade

Talente prospects tend to fall to the Steelers - David DeCastro and then Jarvis Jones - but that wasn't the case this year. That's fine because the Steelers are still making a decent selection. Ryan Shazier is a speedy linebacker who will upgrade the middle of the defense. Pittsburgh's defense was very slow last year, so Shazier was taken to compensate for that.

Pretty lazy analysis. For a guy with ridiculous TFL, sack, and just tackle numbers in college, I'd say he qualifies as a "talented prospect" who is worth more than just the speed

Shazier wasn't nearly the prospect of DeCastro or Jarvis Jones. He didn't fall to us nor was he a steal. Shazier was drafted right around he was supposed to be.

I have high hopes for Shazier. He has the tools, now translate them to the field!

Same goes for Jarvis Jones in his second year. I expect him to get much better and the linebacking corps to be much better overall.

Hopefully the coaching of Joey Porter helps mold them into all-stars

Joey Porter is going to bring back a nasty demeanor to this linebacking corps and he won't put up with half assing it.
