Or could it be that the fact the front seven ranked in the top five against the run, our Qb didn't turn the ball over, the coaching staff put together great game plans in regards to the 'element of surprise' in the playoffs, and the ball control personel to 'kill the clock',........compensated for a secondary ranked 16th in the league ?

And Is there even any need to mention the good fortune of Troy and the backers making plays at 'crucial' moments ?

Nope, but I AM saying that we have a capable and talented group of DB's who, through a series of unfortunate and unforeseen events had a less than stellar year as a group. Just because they suffered a few injuries and set-backs, I'm not willing to toss the baby out with the bath water, but I'm always amused by the people who knee-jerk and want to tear the whole house down because the faucet leaks...

Fortunately for us, the Steelers FO is very, very wise. There will be no CB's drafted early this year.

When was the last time one of our secondary's has had what you would consider a 'stellar' year in the recent past ? And WHOM said anything about 'tossing the baby out with the water' ? Or,... 'tearing down the house' ? (both of which would seem to imply COMPLETE retooling of the secondary and or team )
If you are speaking of me,....you are sadly mistaken,....i said no such thing. What i have always said was simply this,.....that this organization would be better served taking the CORNERBACK position more seriously than they have in recent years.

And though it may be 'fortunate' for you in your "vaunted wisdom" not to draft a CB this year. Hopefully the Rooney's will not continue to make the same 'oversight',...that you deem so 'wise'.

Whoops...didn't know I was speaking to an insider who knew everything about the team. My bad...

However, we aren't drafting CB's this draft in any pick earlier than 120...it is what it is, and that's what it is...besides, how many CB's who have been taken in the first round in the last 5 years have lived up to the hype?

Not many, to save you time.

We aren't picking DB's...

Woman? Based on what? Is that all you have? I expect more and better, but it won't ultimately matter...if you want a smack off, I'll bury you...I've read you posts. And I know this is based on something else anyways...

But....(sigh)....bring it on anyway....let's move to the blast furnace or whatever it's called here so no one gets in trouble...

No, this is something else...there's often "something else".

This has nothing to do with our CB's, and everything to do with something else that's completely unrelated to football...that's why I hate MB's.

Ok you both have your opinions - draft day is less than a month away - then we'll see who has a better handle on Steeler draft.

As LLT sagely puts it - agree to disagree and move on.

Thanks

My Steelers draft steal in my eyes would be to get RB Germaine Race from Pittsburgh St. ... sounds like a workhorse that knows how to put the ball into the endzone..
