As for the offensive picks, every now and then, even the most defensive of teams need to load up a little on offense.
one only needs to look at the team stats from last year to see the areas that needed tending too. the passing game was the weakest link,and they addressed it quite nicely.

thank you. just think, if we still had kordell and maddox as our starters, how excited pittsburgh would be about o. jacobs as their potential "future". and the hope of him being a hidden gem like brady. with ben hes just our back up.

a good value pick with either scenario.

I like our defense. I'm a little worried about Casey going down. I hope he stayed well-conditioned in the off season.

We've been loading up on defensive talent for quite awhile now, especially in the secondary...this year we needed to address the RB's, WR's, and OL depth. All ways to make sure Ben gets all the weapons and help he needs to be successful for us. Our defense remains largely intact from last year save for Chris Hope, and we picked up Ryan Clark and some help in the draft for that. Between our draft, FA, and UDFA's we signed today, we'll be more than good to go with quality players.

Ben lost some of his favorite targets in Plax and El, now Heath Miller, Holmes, Wilson and Morgan who Ben seem to go to the more the season went on, and the MVP XL Hines Ward. How can you not be pumped. Ben is probably friggin smiling from ear to ear

When Casey was injured for alittle last season, Chris Hoke filled in great. He's tough, stoudt run defender and occupies the center/guard as well any reserve DL we have and probably as well as any reserve DL in the league. I dont want Casey to go down at all, the guys a pro bowler and the anchor of the DL...but if he does, we have someone to step in and fill the gap nicely till he returns

Chris Hoke took over and did do a great job. He's more explosive than Hampton. It seemed as though Hoke was always blowing up plays in the offensive backfield which is amazing when you consider that he gets very little playing time. I sometimes wondered why he wasn't the starting nose tackle.
