Default I'm thinking, maybe Nate and Cedrick aren't so good.

Ben had all the time in the world today, and those guys couldn't get open against one of the lesser defenses in the league. As a matter of fact, that has happened pretty often this year. I'm getting the feeling that this is as good as these two guys get. The only thing I could say to the contrary is, watching on TV doesn't give us the chance to see the whole field. So this is a guess based on the results.

It's been a REALLY long time since I've seen one of those "college in bounds" plays in the pros; Wilson didn't even give a half-hearted shot at getting both feet in.

I'm going to say, the #1 priority for '07 is landing a field-stretching WR to complement Ward. There are a few really great ones coming up next year.

I gotta agree with you there Mosca. A couple of WR & some OL, definitely.

I don't agree... we need to address secondary/ o-line and maybe linebacker before we get another receiver... I'm not saying getting Calvin Johnson for example wouldnt' be nice, but it shouldn't be our top priority.

As I recall (hope?), Wilson will not be a huge hit to the cap if he is let go after this season, which should be the case - every time he screws up he has some remark for the official. Hate to burn more high picks on a WR but I guess they will need to draft another one.

Holmes has potential & Nate might become a tolerable #3 receiver.

Has anyone ever heard if Willie Reid will get back on the field this season? Not much production out a #3 pick, but then Anthony Smith getting playing time last week and making that bomnehead play on a punt return today has not shown much either.

I admit they are loaded, but Ginn may not even be the best receiver on OSU.

With other needs, probably look for a WR in 4th round or later. OL and LB are bigger needs.

Ben has much the same problem Brady has in New England - his WR's dont make any plays for him - they dont pull in bad throws and they drop momentum killing passes.

I dont think Pittsburgh need a burner (look at Colston) but they need someone with hands, who is intelligent enough to run routes and make a break when a play is breaking down.

Ben R makes his receivers what they are, and like Brady if he had a little more help he would be awesome.

I see the Offensive line being a top priority. They can find good O-linemen a bit later in the draft though. I would like to see them pick up a power runningback. I could also see us picking up a tall fast WR.

I like the corp we have. Holmes finally stepping up. HInes is a warrior. Cedric had some big catches today. And Washington needs a little more time. We need to get Heath into it more.

WR isn't the main problem with this team. The secondary is. They need a shut down corner.
