Also, I'll sh!t on my pillow and roll my face in it if the Steelers trade up to get Pouncey. I just don't see that happening. I agree that Williams really isn't the best choice and like the idea of trading down into the 2nd.
Agreed, so why take a gamble on a late 1st rounder just because you have a need when you can keep trying with the 3-7th round picks like we have been? If pouncey is gone in the teens and a qb is still available that someone wants I think we could get much more quality with a pair of 2nd rounders.

You have to take the gamble because we HAVE NOT STOPPED AN ELITE PASSING QB/4WIDE since the second half of the Arizona SB.

Like one of the other posters said and I've been saying it for years. Our D doesn't adjust and is great beating Cincy, Clev, Jets, and Baltimore. Why? They don't have accurate QB's.

You realize that we are heading down the exact same path as the last two years. We have zero DB's. ZERO.

We'll get into the playoff then get bombed when you have to play a real team.

Good pic, next you'll move on to Crayons big boy!

You are so cute.

I love how people resort to pictures and "voice of reason" when people have some pretty legit concerns about a PASS D that hasn't shown up since the 2nd Half of the Arizona SB.

Wanna bet we try to pressure Tom Brady and he shreds us? You wanna bet Cam Heywood doesn't help us out?

What good Pass Offense have we stopped?

Let's start with the Super Bowl and work our way back?

Look at the stats, tell me what Sportshow doesn't continually point out that we can't defend the pass?

And you remind me of the biggest Chicken Little fan ever. The sky is always falling.

What part of me saying that I have concerns over the secondary too didn't you understand, douche? I'm not willing to come on here and boo hoo and claim we are totally doomed before the damn draft is even over, much less the season even started.
