yes sir we will be fine my prediction is brown starts for us in the nickel and dime packages and we will see some suprises in who plays and who doesnt. dont worry guys we did great drafted for need not talent and built some depth while addressing the need areas.

Nutshell, courtesy of John Czarnecki, Fox Sports...

"Hey, it’s utterly amazing that men like Kevin Colbert in Pittsburgh and Ted Thompson in Green Bay can have quality drafts picking low in the rounds. Colbert has been one of the best in the business for years and never gets the superlative national attention like Belichick, Bill Polian and Ozzie Newsome. Granted, neither Colbert nor Thompson seeks the limelight, either. But both of these Super Bowl teams helped themselves for the future."

We still have a couple of CBs who were drafted in the last couple years that have not panned out yet but it doesn't mean they are not capable. Butler is especially intriguing (I think I remember that he is a CB, correct me if I am wrong) They had to bolster the OL and DL positions just as much as they needed a CB. I think they did an excellent job there. Only time will tell if either of the CBs will turn out, but drafting anyone in any round is a crapshoot. I think Colbert and company do a great job. They got talent to supplant either Keisel or Smith and the Oline was a shambles last year lest anyone forget. So the second pick is not that surprising to me.

The Crows got a better grade than the Stillers....Jimmy Smith has red flags flying due to well documented legal issues. The Stillers don't draft problems waiting to happen... especially with a number one pick. Smith, of course, will be mentored by that upright citizen Ray ( the felon) Lewis. This is why the Crows had a better draft than the stillers..... Lets wait and see how that works out for the Crows. Cleveland did a good job due to the Falcons giving away the farm for one playes( We'll see how that works out also.

I distinctly remember people gushing over the Mendenhall draft immediately afterwards. That turns out to have been (I think) one of our worst drafts in decades. I guess the lesson is that you can pretty much turn everyone's immediate reaction around 180░ and get to something like the truth.

Also, for whatever reason people love the Bengals drafts year in and year out, starting with that moron Crisco over at CBS. It's perverse, and probably some kind of sexual fetish. Whatever, it's to be ignored by people of reason.

I don't care what they think about how well the "Crows", "Bungles", or "Brownstains" drafted. What it comes down to is great coaching and Steelers have them all beat.

everyones saying that it takes a few years for the dbs to develop in dick's system so, by that estimation, it would be butler, and lewis, and gay step up this year
