I guess I should be happy that we didn't have to draft any of those garbage QB's. They will all be huge busts... maybe Gabbert has a chance but Locker at #8?

Anyway, all those CB's won't even get a chance. 2 Years ago EVERYONE said we couldn't defend pass... we didn't.

Last year we couldn't defend the PASS and luckily we didn't have to play Brady in playoffs then we got mauled by Rodgers. We also don't have very accurate/clutch QB's in our division.

I guess we'll at least get to see the master DB coach Tomlin work his magic.

It's amazing how you think a DE will cover the SLOT?

We have Bryan't "10 yards a catch" McFadden as our primary option. He has been hot garbage for 2 years? Add up those Arizona stats... he' s giving out free candy in our backfield.
Ike won't sign... somebody will offer him batshit crazy money.
C. Butler can't even find his helmet.
Who else? Exactly, we have -depth at CB.

Two years running we've been gashed by passing teams and Tomlin sticks his head in the sand. Oh yeah, Ben can bail them out... you can only hit that well so many times.

BTW, instead of calling me names because your so mad or telling me how we are going to kick ass because we are the Steelers.

Please tell me how you think we'll cover 4-Wide? Pressure, yeah that's right, that PRESSURE that Brady and Rodgers felt by DESTROYING us in 2 Q's and then coasting for the next two.

Once again, just show me a logical way we'll actually stop a pass? Didn't think so but we'll beat up Cleveland and Cincy! Sweet!

Like I said before, even if we did draft a corner, the player wouldn't start this year. Also where did you get the impression that "Butler can't find his helmet". The only CB that would start in Dick Lebeau's defense is Patrick Peterson in this draft, unless someone gets injured.

Exactly, my point-

You're not exactly a master debater. You are proving my point!

WE HAVE NO ONE IN THE BACKFIELD.

So, Cam will come in and STOP THE RUN? Nobody runs on us? They just pass because it's the easiest way to stomp us.

Clark can't cover.
Superman can't cover 4 guys
Ike will be gone.
And as you said "No CB" can just step into this vaunted Defense. A vaunted DEFENSE that hasn't stopped the pass in TWO YEARS. Sure we can pile it on Cincy, Clev, and we'll beat BALT / JETS because they don't have an accurate QB.

I'll go back to my original point. We'll still get bombed by the Pats, NO, Green Bay's. We don't adjust AND we have no CB's

So our system is so awesome that no CB can grasp the complexity of giving up 10 yards a pass.

Then you add to it that we don't sign FA's.

I'll go out on a limb, our RUN D will be awesome. Our PASS D will be shit.

We'll get to the Playoffs then get bombed by a passing attack we KNEW they would do but won't adjust and won't draft anything to counter it.

Does that sound familiar?

CRAP! I guess there's no reason to watch the next season now! Way to ruin it for everyone, llama.


I guess I'll just take up basket weaving or something.

I'm okay with Heyward, all the good Olinemen were gone and while I would have prefered a CB I see why we may have chosen him, but we NEED to secure a good CB tomorrow. I'm personally hoping we go after Ras-I Dowling, I'd be willing to sacrifice a lot of the rest of our draft to get him. Williams will be off the board to early for us to trade up but with both Williams and Harris left on Day 2, Dowling might slide far enough for us to get him.

I'm guessing the front office felt Heyward was a better pick than any of the corners still on the board. Perhaps they believe they can get one just as good in the next round without reaching in the first.

No need to reach for a guy you can probably secure in round 2. D-line was a pressing need for us as well. I think they did the right thing here. We'll see how things go in rounds 2 and 3 as far as securing a CB.


I still think Butler shows promise and hopefully Lewis finally gets his head out of his ass.
