Can somoeone please explain why the steelers have blown 3 great oppurtunities to select solid players of pressing need who were of greater value than the steelers settled for. Some notables they have passed up: Dan Williams, Sean Weatherspoon, Kyle Wilson, Bryan Bulaga, Brandon Ghee, Terrence Cody, Sean Lee, Major Wright, just to name a few.

I like this pick for the fact he has kick return skills. We've been needing a small speedy guy for returns. Also, reports are he is a tough cookie that doesn't mind going over the middle.

Neon Dieon Sanders in the third round is a bargain. Oh, never mind its Manny Sanders. My bad.

He's got some serious moves and makes some pretty tough catches. Mayock said he's a tough guy and you can see he throws his body around.

mike wallace weighs 200 lbs.

where do you guys get your info?

they are all ripping bong hits with santonio holmes right now, and goodell informed us we would forfeit 2 first round picks if we even looked at them.

When we take an unknown like Jason Worilds to be a “back up OLB and STs player” I grimace because of the misses in the Second. Going back to 67, these come to mind…Sweed, Ricardo Colclough, Alonzo Jackson, Scott Shields, Jeremy Staat, Will Blackwell, Jeff Graham, Mark Behning, Chris Kolodziejski, John Meyer, Willie Fry, Robert Barber, Ken Phares, Ernie Ruple, and Rockne Freitas. But the Second has actually brought us many of our better players… Lamarr Woodley, ARE, Kendrell Bell, Marvel Smith, Kordell Stewart, Brentson Buckner, Chad Brown, Levon Kirkland, Carnell Lake, Dermontti Dawson, Delton Hall, Sidney Thornton, Ray Pinney, Jack Lambert, Gordon Gravelle, Jack Ham, and Ron Shanklin.

And if you recall, Lambert was taken as a back up OLB and STs player.

Look at the bright side guys...we could be the Saints. #1 offense in the league with two excellent QB's - lost their starting SLB in FA. One of the best o lines in the league.

They pick a CB, a project O lineman, and a project TE.

Their fans must be pulling their eyelashes out right now.
