I knew it was just a matter of time before this was brought up. We won a SB without his services as well, which everyone seems to conveniently forget when mentioning that malcontent. He dissed the team AND city on his way out to boot. I guess I'm just not as forgiving about those kinds of things as a lot of folks seem to be. He finally made the SB with his new team. Good for him. Too bad it'll more than likely be a losing effort and he'll still have no ring to show for it afterwards.

Agreed plex just didn't fit into the system in pittsburgh, and your right he probabley won't have a ring this go around.

Three reasons that grabbing tall recievers (that have slipped out of the first three rounds) is a bad idea.

1) Walter Young
2) Fred Gibson
3) Dallas Baker

now we are just being silly, Mannigham won't be available unless we pull a Holmes trade and jump up to grab him. I don't see that happening.

But yes, He would make a fantastic #3 receiver and that would put the fear into some teams in the league. "Crap, the Steelers have 3 guys with great hands now. Crap"

But, they'd still say "too bad they can't pass block" and we'd be S-crewed.

Jerry Porter is available and would look great in the black & gold. He went to college in Morgantown. He has great upside and would work well with Ben, Ward & Holmes. He is still young and is fast and tall. Sounds like a great match for us.
