I guess people must have some family in the scouting department here or something my goodness
You're dumb because you have given no context at all to anything that you have given you're "opinion" on. You can't say the Steelers are bad at drafting, then list all their draft misses, and not compare it to other teams. It's laziness, and reeks of you bitching just to bitch.

This is a warning we need to keep it civil here.

would it offend you if you suddenly discovered that overwhelming majority of steeler fans do not agree with your opinion that this scouting department needs to change?


Cause you seem offended everyone isn't buying in to what you said.

Welcome to today s NFL. I agree it sucks having an 8-8 season every 8 years and a winless preseason is never fun but let's not over react.

I gave context in the first post. I compare the Steelers to the Steelers. Where did I say they are bad at drafting? A change or 2 has turned into ebsteelers thinks every draft has sucked since 74.

My opinion is so wrong yet everyone has something to say about it.

Nice.

No I dont get offended and cry like everyone else here when someone doesnt say that everything the Steelers do is amazing. I knew this was gonna be the reaction. I know how fans are. I guess this will be interest to visit later on in the season if it turns into another 8-8 season.

I hope I am wrong and both tackles play like stars and Allen is a beast and Jones is the next franchise quarterback and that we make the playoffs this year and we the championship

Well guys. Theres a reason he was in the 7th. At that points GMs are going... Well... I guess we can try.



Another thing is the mental part, which noone thinks about. These guys get treated like royalty in college. Because they make the college a ton of cash


Then they don't know how to act in the NFL.



Its not the Our Coaches Job to baby these guys. They make millions. Its on them, or they will be out of a job.



Let me, add... Our Front office has been to superbowls for a reason.


Our Front office has been to the big game 3 times in the past 10 years, Winning it twice.


Yet.. Apparently to us Fans... They don't know what they are doing.


What other teams can say that. Only 1 right now (Pats) and they are 1-2


In the Ben Roethlisberger era, you could say no team has been more successful


Closest is Eli (God Bless him for beating Tom Brady twice)

But Ben has one more appearance.
No, you didn't come on too strong. You applied the swift boot to the ass that many of us need to return to reality.
Many of us are spoiled. We expect all-pros at every position.....totally unrealistic.
We've had our fair share of great players.
Our pedigree and track record speaks for itself.
