Default Steelers Front Office

I just wanted to say I'm very pleased with the Steeler's front office. With coming off a Super Bowl win its a great time for Steelers fan all across the Steelers Nation. With the Rooney's resigning Ike Taylor and the F.O. making a trade for P. Cobbs. I must say I'm very pleased with the Steeler's top brass.

The Ike Taylor signing is huge. Did we really want to risk lossing Ike and entering next year with just Townsend, McFadden and Colclouch back there.

I must say I like the Cobbs trade. Sure he is a undrafted free agent and his pre-season success doesn't mean jack. But with Duce looking old and slow. We needed another RB. True Cobbs isn't the power back we all like and we did cut two big backs. But again I will say we won't it all with a undrafted speed back starting last year. Cobbs is a undrafted speed back. Willie is our starter but I'm telling I think Cobbs will make some plays this year and fill a role.

Cobbs runs very powerfully. Size isn't everything. Look at that dude from WashU...he played yesterday...Demaundray Woolridge.


THAT kid runs hard. When I was watching the Auburn game, I thought he was at least 240-250. Turns out hes just 210.

Left out the Parker extension also.

This is why I let the FO do their thing, try not to jump to conclusion, sit back and watch it all pan out. Great post by the way.

How did I forget about the Willie Parker extension.

A totally bonehead move on my part. But your right another great move by our front office.

Great post D! It is great to see our FO step up to the task and do what needed to be done before the season starts in order to keep the focus on the games, not on the checks and balances.

There is one thing I never doubt and that's the Steelers FO. They make good moves and play smart.
