That's a classic rookie mistake and the reason why I don't blame Ben for that pick.

In fact, right after that play, the camera showed a closeup of Ben rolling his eyes and the look on his face said, "You mean you couldn't have seen that ball was too far ahead of you?"
I'm 100% in agreement with this and MainSteelerFan. Great talent and no doubt these young receivers will be true assets for this team. However, they do need to learn to play the ball in the air and adjust their routes if necessary. I think it would be cool if the Steelers brought in Lynn Swann, Stallworth, Lipps to work with these young guys in spring training on how to be great receivers (and teach them how to adjust to the ball after it's been thrown). Hell, they bring in old linebackers to pass along the knowledge, why not bring in some receivers to teach these young bucks?

The Steelers are old. They have to find guys like this so they can keep winning. They are off to a good start.
Who are the two legit receivers? Maybe if you count Ward. Sanders and Brown are green yet. Ward is needed.

Hood replace Smith when he is done? Hood is better now.

It's almost like the Redskins Smurfs with Charlie Brown and Rickey Sanders! Ward and Wallance would be Monk and Alvin Garrett. Randel El would be Virgil Seay.... LoL
