This is a great point. Florida State is a Defensive Player machine. McFadden (you know the rookie who broke up the pass in the end zone on 2nd down that Manning threw to his main man after the Bettis fumble) is from FSU. Florida State has great talent, and even though some of the...well I can't even type the name of the school...but its initials are P S and something else...want Poz because they are homers and want the local talent, you have to think big picture. And big picture, Timmons fills multiple needs, not just the inside linebacker position.

Um, that was like, 30+ years ago. We're at now, now. Everything that's happening now is happening now......:

In fairness to him we must give him much more time because he is a Steeler and Poz is not.
To be honest in todays NFL, I'm sorry to say it that alot of the old Steelers would of been mediocre. Yes I loved them and Yes they were a force back then, todays NFl is WAY WAY Diffrent. But as I said I love my old Steelers! Just a true statement. You look at alot of the sizes they were back then they would of been in many diffrent positions, specially on Defense.

The Dermontti Dawson and Rod Woodson picks were 30 years ago? Not quite. Besides, Troy hasn't been a bust either, has he, and that's VERY recent. Like I said - the draft is a crapshoot - sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

in todays nfl the old steelers would be bigger, meaner, stronger, faster, and healthier.

they would crush any of todays opponents.

Give the guy, the team, and the Rooney's a break!

No I don't think so... If Timmons is a good player who is injured all the time it can't be called out as the teams fault because he didn't have that history in college and there was no way to know. If he is just a bad player then yeah obviously they should have taken POZ... But I have full trust in Tomlin and think barring to many injuries Timmons will turn out to be a very good player.

IMO the Steelers knew what they were getting the kid just turned 21 they see tremendous potential in him. Maybe they think Poz is at his ceiling. I also liked Poz more at draft time because I felt like he fit the Steeler mold.

Default Re: Steelers Regret Not Taking Posluszny?

regret?

yeah. posluszny is so great, the steelers regret not trading UP to get him.

the steelers and 31 other teams had him rated below the player they took in the 1st round.

i realize he's from penn state, but the bellyaching over the 1st pick being used on timmons is rediculous. why spend a 1st round pick on a consencus 2nd round graded player when we can go out and try to get 1st round talent?

if anything the steelers woulda traded UP in the 2nd round to draft paul if they wanted him. instead they took woodley.

to answer the question, the steelers have absolutely no regret about not taking paul. not yet anyways. perhaps in 5-10 years they might, but if thats the case so might 31 other teams.
