Default Chidi Iwuoma to the Patriots

Your thoughts please, on the latest ex-Steelers to join the ranks of the Patriots?

The takes I have heard so far lead me to believe that he is an ace ST player (gunner) but wont be troubling the starters in the DB corps anytime soon.

Any insider info appreciated.

He is exactly that, he will be missed. If not for Abntony Smith, he's still a Steeler. Still would haver kept Chidi and cut Morey. Good pick up by the Pats. Good Luck Chidi.

Yeah - there goes all hope of a repeat for the Steelers; the absence of Chidi's help with blocking for Parker in the Jax game and returning punts against Cincy clearly made the difference in both games.

The Pats are now prohibitive favorites to win it all.

Seriously, he is a nice special teams player (for a 5'7" DB) and for all I know may have other redemming qualities such as being polite and having good handwriting, but if he is such a difference maker I doubt he would have gone unsigned for the last month.

Hopefully the Steelers can now focus maximium effort on bringing Kuhns back.

hey 19ward86.... I kinda have a sneaking suspicion that we drafter Santonio Holmes to play reciever.... just a thought. Alos, both he and Reid are return men. Iwoma is a gunner. He plays on kickoffs.
