Eh, I am still waiting for them to bring back Mitch Berger to complete the 2008 reunion.

You do know that right after the 1974 draft, the "experts" graded the Steelers draft a low score, like a D or something, right?

Once in my life I totally geeked out for the draft. I bought every draft guide I could get my hands on and studied them front to back. On draft day I got to my set early, I watched ever pick with anticipation praying the right guys would fall to the Steelers, and it just so happens that year they did. Every pick fell in place perfectly, the Steelers draft was praised by one and all they were set to dominate the league for the next decade!

The year was 1989 the Steelers had two first round picks which they used to pick Tim Worley and Tom Ricketts. I learned not to take myself so seriously soon thereafter. It turns out buying a couple draft guides and subscribing to ESPN insider doesn't make you an expert after all.

Oh there was a bit of a happy ending to 89 after all though, we did get Carnell Lake in the 3rd.

Where's the option to agree with not getting an A or B, because honestly we aren't even close to either.

i created 4 options for panicky thread starters who complain our picks are busts or suck.

strangely enough those 4 options are the ones with 1 or fewer votes.

i figured as much.

i'll just put a vote down for you next to this option- my sense of self worth will be diminished if not validated with draft grades

Right...because you can't criticize the Steelers without being in panic mode, killing yourself, or jumping off a bridge.

Where's the option for "My head is stuck so far up Steelers management ass, that I'd give them an A++++ no matter who they picked" That would have to be your vote.
