Default Anyone else excited?

I was sitting here tonight finally getting to watch the rerun of the Arizona-Steelers game on ESPN Network. I was just watching the way Davenort slowly ran some draws on 3rd downs... Man I dont know about anyone else, But I look Forward to Seeing Mewelde Moore in the backfield on 3rd downs this upcoming season, and catching some screen passes out the shotgun. This guy picks up the blitz pretty darn well and is very quick to hit the hole and can catch the ball.
I for one am glad to see this signing to give us a legit 3rd down threat since we havent got a healthy Verron Haynes anymore.

He is the youngest of our backs and has the biggest chance at really doing somethign here. He is fast as hell, young, and has a great worth ethic. As we all know Willies Injury was horrible it could have bad lingering effects on him and I think management knows that and thats why they got Moore, also in a thread I started the other day we all discussed who we think would stay here their Carrer, well most of us agreed Willie wont, I think he will want alot of money his contract now is alot lower than he will want, After thinking about this they also must have got moore considering the money. Moore is another underated back like Wilie was, I hope moore can step it up this year and get more reps until he is in the rotation. We will see.

I too am optimistic on the Moore signing, but don't rule Davenport out just yet....he has been nothing but productive for this organization and I look for him knocking defenders on the backs to start a fresh 08 season

I just don't think davenport has the power anymore to knock over defenders I think his days are numbered.

I remember a few games last year that Davenport would hit the line, turn his back to it, and try to push his way through. Hey Dumptruck - that doesn't work so well.

Anyway, I'm excited about having Moore, and Davis back there supporting FWP

Yea, I'm happy we picked up Moore, but I still want to see more Gary Russell.

News and notes
I had a chance to speak with several coaches and personnel men early on here at the annual meetings. Here's a brief rundown of some of the information gathered:

? Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin stopped by our Sirius broadcast Monday afternoon to discuss what a good addition Mewelde Moore will be to the Steelers. As Tomlin pointed out, Moore was a scout team running back for the Vikings when he was the Minnesota defensive coordinator. There is a plan in Pittsburgh to build a package around Moore's skills as a receiver and runner. ...
