A QB.

So we can bitch how he holds onto the ball to long and takes too many sacks. Flip side he doesn't n we bitch about all the throw aways and dump offs.

Watching luck have 20 seconds in the pocket along with so many other qbs makes me sick :-/

I'd rather have a punter on the ascent. Why take a punter during the decline of his career? Let's get younger, no retreads.

We need to actually DRAFT some players that make the roster....

I think Tomlin is a tool but this team is just not good. Serious lack of talent in every position. Just too many busts in the last few drafts...

Oh, isn't Tomlin supposed to be a DB coach? Because we've sucked since 2nd H of Arizona SB.

If we're able to draft Bridgewater I would take him in a second. Ben is almost done and Teddy can ride the bench and learn for two years. You can have the best OL but without a QB you can't find win in this league. I think we have a semi decen line, we just need a new line coach to get them to play up to there talent and maybe stay healthy

We've got needs all over the place, but we've got decisions to make first that will dictate where our draft priorities are.

If LeBeau goes at the end of the season (there's no way the Rooneys will fire him, or allow him to be fired mid-season) then Tomlin may look for a DC who's a 4-3 guy (like Tomlin used to work with), in which case you can scratch nose tackle from the list of needs. Then there's the cap situation - which is dire. If we need to lose some vets to get cap room, then that too informswhere our drafting priorities are.

Right now, the priorities to me seem to be ILB, WR, all over the Secondary and DL. If we can't find the cap room to pick up serviceable OL help in free agency, then that goes on the list too. If we pick top 5 (and it's looking increasingly like we might) then if Mariota is available, we have to take him, unless the staff see something in Landry Jones I dont.

Everything. This is a total rebuild. Tomlin and Colbert have dismantled a SB roster and built a roster that resembles some of the Browns and Bengals teams of years past.

We need younger secondary players. In fact, we should already have one or two more to groom right now, but don't.

Are you serious with that comment? Our defense has been near tops in the league every year since Super Bowl 43, up until this year. I believe we were #1 against the pass last year.
