I agree with your post here brother... but I dont see the aging OLB's myself. It is our ILB's that are gettin' old. With Farrior coming to the end of a good career as a Jet and Steeler, but we must address this position sooner than later in my opinion of course...

Well you must be happy when we drafted him. He has talent lets just hope he pans out to be a classic black and gold linebacker. All we can do is wait

Sounds to me like you need to give a guy a chance bud. This guy hasnt gotten on the field yet and your saying he is a bust? I am glad that your not the one that started this Steelersfever website, because if there wasnt 3,000 chatters at first you would have probably canceled it and we wouldnt be here right now in the greatest Steelers Forrum on the net...

I really love all of our picks except 1(Matt Spaeth)

I saw the guy a couple of times,and I'm really not impressed with his play.

He's big,not fast and isn't good as a blocker

He doesnt have good hands,the kind of guy that will drop a pass in the endzone.

So I still wonder why they took the guy.I know they wanted to bring the 3 TE Formation but we could have drafted one TE later in the draft or even sign a UDFA.

I still think we should have draft a OL or Michael Bush.

This pick I tell you is going to be one that will haunt us for years to come.

But I really love all of the other picks

My fav picks were
Timmons
Woodley
Sepulveda
Gay

I don't know if it would be cataclysmic if a 3rd rounder didn't pan out. I can name a handleful of guys in the past decade that went much higher, were much more hyped, and didn't work out.

Spaeth was inactive last week with an injury so its gonna take a while to see anything from him.

What is it you like about Timmons? His shirt/pant matching ability? I haven't seen much of him to really make a decision, but I worry because this isn't the kind of defense that a one-dimensional defender is going to thrive in.

If they DO swing him to ILB I think he'd be better off since, from what I hear and have seen in some videos, is very explosive into the backfield. I'd rather see Woodley on the outside as he's done well in coverage this preseason.

Drafting an Offensive Lineman, after tonights performance, MAY have been worth looking into more, in retrospect, but I'm sure that was considered and they didn't see anyone they were crazy about.

I don't know about Bush. First of all, he was, and is, high risk, high reward. Before his leg injury I would have loved to have had him, but there's really no way of knowing how its gonna pan out. I mean look at Timmons. He has bust written all over him and that groin wasn't looking like a big deal in the beginning.

We are having trouble figuring out who, of this group sans Bush, we would like to see go. This backfield has potential, even without Bush.

I agree with you on the other three picks. Everyone but Timmons I am in to.

Good points Crush....I have looked over the draft boards several times just wondering where we may have tweaked things a bit...(who we could have taken in place of Spaeth and Ryan McBean...ect.).....and I think you are right. At #77 the only Lineman that I saw that I would have wanted, that was available was OT Doug Free, and he was a reach at that pick...RB Tony Hunt may have been worth a look ...and WR Mike Walker at 6'2 and 4.45, would have been interesting.

I think that at McBeans spot...Penn States Tim Shaw would have been nice...He may translate into a solid blue-collar ILB...especially in a 3-4 scheme.

I'm not worried about the offensive line, and I doubt Coach Tomlin is either. We knew that he was going to mix things up so he could see where we are. I don't think we have the line to make a Super Bowl run this season, but I think that after this season Coach Tomlin will figure out what he needs and the FO will go and get it for him.
