Default Groves to Jags

Anyone feel that the Jags got wind that we were going to draft Groves and traded up to skunk us?

If not... Sweed would have been Groves methings... anyone?

Jacksonville just swooped in and robbed us. Big time. That's all that needs to be said. We had Groves fall right into out lap, and the Jagoffs snatched him, so we had to fall back on Sweed. That trade isn't made, we would be picking out a number for Groves instead of Sweed.

I hope there's another D-Lineman out there as good as him. Groves would've done wonders for the Steelers. It's a blasted shame.

I was very disappointed. I think Jacksonville likes screwing us over on purpose.

No. I think Jax wants to win a superbowl, and thought that they found a team they could trade with... because they didn't think their player would fall to them.

If you want to succeed copy greatness. Jack Del Rio has made this no secret. Play Steeler football and success will come.

SInce we're going 8-8 and drafting hopefully in the ten-spot next draft there is no coach I'd rather see spank the rest of the AFC this season. Wait do we have to play them this year?

Maurice Jones-Drew showed the Jags what a rookie can do. Rashard at least gives some potential 'outs'.

that is a nice line but they did trade up to get harvey...
so basically trading all there picks away 4 2 de's means that they need pass rushers and they will get a lot of time on d
