Default One Word of Advice To Mr. Tomlin for the Draft

please dont embarrass us fans with your selections this weekend. i am not talking about bust vs superstar either... i am saying that i dont want any guy with questionable character being drafted. if you get a negative vibe from his demeanor and he has some baggage off the field, dont take him. living in cleveland, i dont want to have to try to defend one of our players because he was thrown in jail during the previous weekend. i dont want to see one of our guys whine, cry, and disrespect the opponent to the point that its embarrassing to watch either.

steelers fans dont like those kinds of people and players. we pride ourselves on supporting and paying to see guys that dont put us in danger off the field by driving intoxicated, illegally carrying weapons, and looking for fights. do the right think coach, because these kinds of players make the organization, fans, and coach look bad.

I doubt we will be drafting anyone with major character flaws.

And Tomlin doesn't make the picks,Kevin Colbert,the GM makes the picks.I am sure Tomlin will have some say,but the final say is up to Colbert and Dan Rooney.

holmes wasn't exactly busting with great character.

but i know what you mean. the NFL and its teams need to be more strict with players. i see nothing wrong with adding a clause in their contract that says "if you are convicted of a DUI we will take away 75% or more of your salary each year". how difficult is it to avoid drinking and driving?

It is not the history of the Steelers organization to draft character problem. I don't think that would change just because there is a new coach. By the way, Mr Colbert is the head of the draft, not Mr Tomlin. So, if there is somehow this radical change in the way things have been done, the blame should be focused on Colbert

I really don't think you have to worry about Kevin Colbert/Mike Tomlin/Dan Rooney bringing any draftee on board who is a known problem child. The Steelers just don't operate that way.

The ground beef of the draft will be selected by the Bungles and the prime rib will be chosen by the Steelers, as history has shown for the most part.

Here's my memo Colbert/Tomlin:

Make a draft day move with one of the current steelers whose financial situation places his future with the Steelers in doubt!!!!!!!

Dont wait until they are unmovable to acknowledge that indeed their future is in question.

this is what the bengals will be handing out to its new draft picks this year. Instead of get out of jail free, they will get the following...

Maybe he was hanging out with Tom Brady that day and got in touch with his metrosexual side?????

If it makes you uncomfortable, I could change it.
