Compared to this time last year, (no particular order):

RB: Willie, Dookie Who/What?, Davis, Russel (UDFA Rook)
vs. Willie, Mewelde, Mende, Russell, and Davis on the bubble---Big +

QB: Ben, Charlie, ......What?
vs. Ben, Lefty, Dixon, Charlie in the wings---Big +

WR: Hines, Tone ?, Ced, Nate, Reid, I forget the other guy
vs. Hines, Tone set to explode, Nate (could be the breakout wow since Tone's a lock), Sweed--money in the bank, Reid, Baker, Rucker--u pick 'im--Big +

LB: Joey's gone--Yoi!, J. Harrison a ?, Haggans, Foote, Potsy, depth?
vs. Silverback-PB, Timmons/Woodley bustin' thru, Potsy, Foote,
Fox, Davis, Humpal, etc. Decent +

Returns: Reid off Redshirt, Rossum, Dookie, Cold Cough
vs. Reid recovered & pushin', Drummond, Mewelde, etc.--Moderate +

Coverage: Despite Fri. Nite's Lite Up, seems a moderate +

OL: Too, too much---except some of these bright spots-
Faneca's replacement seems to be the least of our problems Big +
Marvel may be fixed--if so, Big +
Hartwig ( MINUS) combined with Mahan ( Minus) may equal a moderate +
Comment---Starks' Colonic may finally kick in, he gets his head out of his ass, and he finally realizes he could make a fortune planting DL and LB instead of corpses.
OL all in all is what it is, but a marginal plus over last year.

DL: Heaven Help Us---Big Minus
Comment---Gotta like Coach's hard line with the Snack--maybe he'll be in some kind of effective shape by November

DB: Some ?'s some positives, overall a moderate minus from this stage last year.

Gotta like the way Tomlin and the Management is building the team up and out. If we see the progress in the trenches next year that we had at RB, LB, QB, and WR this past offseason, we could be in about as good a shape as possible in today[s game.

i think you summed that up nicely, mill wright.

we are downgraded with sepulveda being gone and the subrtaction of tuman isnt a plus. (minor details- although sepulveda better translate into a pro bowl punter when he returns).

Excellent post Mill Write!

Pretty much nailed everything as it is without the Kool Aid glasses, or the Mr. Negative glasses.

Might be a few quibbles... but overall, good assessment.

"If we see the progress in the trenches next year ..."

This is where ideaology has no options. Only choices. There is NO REBUILD any time soon. The Hummer market died overnight. What fantastic solution is there ONLY for the Rooney's? None.

All assumptions based on 2007 are gone. DONE.

If y'all think the delay in the Steeler sell out is coincidental...

Now that Mendenhall and Dixon are blowing minds the Racetrack Rooneys cashed in on another bet - a gamble indeed.

The Rooney's got it right again.
