Half of these guys were here before Colbert got here.I won't argue with any of the names you put out there. Let me throw some names at you. Ben, Pouncey,Timmons,Woodley, Colon, Big Snack, Aaron,Wallace,Ward,Burress,Sanders.

Enough yet. Who did they replace Scott with. Some slacker named Woodsen. Man he sure didn't pan out. Yeah, point out we let him get away. Dan Rooney said it was one of the moves he regretted. He still went in a STEELER!!!! But that's probably because our FO sucks. I'm not saying they anywhere near perfect but they do a hell of a lot better than most. THE TRACK RECORD SPEAKS FOR IT SELF. I don't give a damn what you say!!

You're wasting your time trying to make a point here. He doesn't care for the FO and has suggested that the players are HGH junkies. Yet, somehow he's a fan

Everybody makes mistakes but we do draft very well. If we didnt we would be raiding the free agent market, We make it to the playoffs almost every year give the team some credit. Still think they should fire bruce the d bag.

I won't say the FO is perfect. But I will say they are better than the FOs of about 95% of the teams in the NFL. The people who constantly complain about how they do things obviously don't follow the way they do things in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Oakland, Seattle, Buffalo, etc. Those front office people are pathetic. And to say that you have to hit on every single draft choice is ludicrous. No team does it. It is impossible to project exactly how players are going to go from college into the pros. But keep complaining while the Steelers keep winning.

i'm not so sure i like the idea of hills at guard. interior linemen need to be maulers who can push defensive linemen backwards using nothing but brute strength. that is exactly what guys like essex and hartwig lacked and the reason our short yardage running game sucked ass the last few years. colon fits the mauler description perfectly , hills ? ... not at all....

Might as well hold further judgment on Hills until after tonight's game, don't you think? Tonight is his chance to prove himself to everybody in the Steelers community, especially the fans.

Hills knock on him in college is that he was more finesse than power. Does
that sound like a RG?

Hills did not score particularly well on my own personal eye test tonight, although he did have to unexpectedly shuffle around due to injuries. Chris Scott was also unimpressive from what I could tell, as was Keith Williams. In fact, I didn't think that the guard play throughout the game was particularly good, but I will wait to see what others who actually re-watch and examine every play have to say. I thought that Gilbert, outside of his penalty, played fairly well on his limited time. I see his potential and I am willing to work through his growing pains if that becomes necessary. It's not like the line standard is particularly high as it is.
