I never said you weren't a fan. Show me the post oh "master of reading comprehension". I also never said "you suck". Is there some sort of English-to-retard language barrier I'm not seeing here?

I've also agreed all along that our CBs (aside from Ike) are not very good, just that we shouldn't have reached in the first for a guy we can pick up in the second.



Again, reading comprehension. Where, exactly, did I say you don't know shit about the draft? Never said it. Also never said that ALL cornerbacks in the draft were a reach. Just possibly the ones available to us at 31.



You're making this too easy, Corky. The exact quote: "
"You are the one on here REPEATEDLY saying how our secondary sucks so bad we'll never win against a good passing team this year. Thanks for the "adult dialogue", Kreskin. You're a genius."

Where does it say "everybody knows this"?


In review:
1) I agree our CBs (except Ike, who may leave) are not very good.
2) I hold out HOPE that Butler or Lewis puts it together this season.
3) I DO NOT share your feelings that we have NO chance against "better passing teams". It's all about exploiting THEIR weaknesses.
4) I do not feel that there was a first round worthy CB pick left at 31.
5) The Steelers WILL pick up a CB in round 2 that could be just as good as anyone available at 31 in the first.
6) You are a total paste-eater.


I can't put it in any simpler terms for you to understand, unless there is some sort of finger-painting function on the site here that I can draw some pictures with that you may comprehend that I don't know about.

The phrase in red is my favorite. And you talk to me about "reading comprehension"? No wonder I don't "understand you".

The Steelers won't wait till beyond round 3 to draft a CB unless they have some other plan, so you can eliminate those rounds from your list.

Not sure how the pick of Hood or Mendenhall could be construed as later round picks since they were drafted in the first. Plus they are pretty good which doesn't help your case.

Wallace was a steal in round 2 IMHO. He's been awesome.

I still think the jury's out on Lewis and Sweed.

You could go down the post first round picks of EVERY team in the NFL and find players that didn't pan out, Corky. It's basically a crap shoot most of the time after round 3 or 4 anyway. Mostly role players, camp fodder and preseason cuts with the occasional gem or diamond in the rough mixed in.

And. yes, we will see.

We can only hope Art Rooney II is here scouring the board for this kind of infinite wisdom for the Steelers scouting department. Sign him up, Art!

Id rather have a team throw on us for 600 yards and 6 Tds than watch their RB rush for 200 yds and 4 TDs

We did go to the Super Bowl without drafting quality CBs in the later rounds, no?

It makes no sense to draft a CB just because we needed one. You want to draft another Bryant McFadden because Bryant McFadden sucks too bad?

You have to learn how to rationally balance costs with benefits. We may need a CB, but if the CB we get at 31 isn't that much better than the CB we'd get at 62, we may as well get a dominate defensive end and a slightly less talented CB. And it's not like we don't need a defensive end with Keisel getting up there at age 32. The other option would be to draft a slightly more talented CB at 31, and a much less talented (less talented than Heyward) player at 62. It's not that hard to understand.

You're wasting your time, clopp. Logic doesn't apply to llama. Careful, or you'll be accused of being married to LeBeau or Colbert.
