yeah, I bet that's everyone's dream. but it's not gonna happen. fact is they need solid linemen, not any scrub that gets pushed around all day.

the picks have been great today, but helping the o line is needed

Sweed and Holmes are 2 completely differenct WR's and size has a lot to do with that.

A basic passing tree only has 9 routes on it and I'm sure Sweed knows how to run a 3 (in route), 5 (hook) just as much as a 9(fly or go route). He was a top 10 pick at the start of the 2007 season.....a wrist injury made him slide. Its a great pick!!

Yep, along with the annual clamoring for another "big back."

So far it looks like Smith, Kemoateu, Hartwig, Simmons, Starks will be a good O line.

The problem is that Smith, Kemo, Starks, Essex are all in the final year of their contracts. If O line isnt addressed tomorrow, 2009 will be scary for Ben!

This is a great pick. It addresses a big need and fulfills the wishes of big ben. It is also redemtion after the steelers practically wasted their first round pick for a f***ing running back ( a position where they were perfectly set) and hopefully gives ben someone to throw the ball to aside from Ward and Holmes (other than crap like Nate Washington and Willie Ried). Lets pray the steelers adress the dire need at both lines.
