Agreed. The kid obviously has something that needs to be worked on and there is no way the steelers can work on it with him unless some bad catches happen. He's now going to play with a chip on his shoulder as you can see by his Ward like block. Keep you faith and don't always get so frustrated steeler nation. I see these negative threads all to often only to see the players come back and make you eat your words!

Felt good about the block. Hope he gets some redemption with an important catch. It would go a long way for his confidence.

When we drafted him, I was estatic.

Now when I see the ball go his way....I think Drop.

It's in his head. He's a good receiver...but I will say this...he's lucky he was a 2nd Rounder.

Well, he made that one catch. He even put out his arms to make it.

There's good stuff in the kid. He just hasn't rounded the curve yet.

I won't give up on him yet like Willie Reid, but that would have put the game away.

I think I said this same thing at my son's Junior League tryouts... but I actually agree. he needs one or two more seasons, but he needs to get some confidence back. He actually played the second half like he was just playing and not thinking... a good sign, but we will see. With the success we've had in the draft there are high expectations for our 2nd rounders.
