Default Sweed

Speaking at his weekly press conference on Tuesday, coach Mike Tomlin was not ready to give the team's No. 4 receiver spot to Sweed. i guess the coach does see a problem with his drops.

At least the coach isn't blinded by the fact that he was a #2 pick. Instead he's doing what's best for the team.

How many times have we seen players starting that should have been benched only because of who they were?

Yeah, Sweed is still a guy that has only been around for what.......6-weeks of training camp??

Baker is in year 2 and I wouldnt be surprised to see him dress as the #4 WR while the rookie Sweed is inactive on gameday.

He might. I am just thinking of who will be the 8 to sit, as you can only dress 45 I believe.

Davis, Woods, Dixon(emergency QB), Hills, Russell, Eason, Gay.....???? I just think if your #5 WR cant cover or return kicks, he will end up inactive.

if sweed does end up being inactive for more than the first game or 2, i dont care how anyone wants to say it, slice it, make excuses, twist it, whatever, thats a big disapointment for a 2nd round draft pick for a skilled position player. not saying bust yet, but thats far more worse a situation than timmon's from last year.

nice post Steel, I agree with ya there also.

I have just seen several drops by Sweed that concern me a lilttle with him being that he just had the surgery on his eyes to help him out. Maybe its just taking a little for adjustments for that... I dunno. But all in all I think the Steelers have got to have him at the 4 spot... no way no how he shouldnt be in there, but I really dont see him unseating Nate Washington this season

I missed the game against Carolina - all I had was a radio feed. Were they hitting him in the hands and he was simply dropping them or was he trying to catch them with his body and they were bouncing out?

Steelers coaches have always struck me as men of respect...

if u baker outperforms sweed. he gets the higher spot.
but im pretty disappointed in sweed thus far. he has been getting a bit of hype which i thought would yield better.
