Although, yeah... with our O-Line, perhaps he would be CJ1K or CJ500 or CJ-IR right about now.
OK, for one, he played football at East Carolina! Do you know another player that played in that week conference that you can say you knew would be that good? And don't say David Garrard because I doubt you knew who he was before he was drafted!

I disagree. If we are going to run the Steelers version of the 3-4 then we need LB's. Given Farrior's drop-off last year & the concern that Timmons may have been a bust, the FO felt that LB was a major need.

Without a stable of athletic LB's, it wouldn't matter how many DB's we draft, the whole defense would fail.

Now, going forward, with Timmons, Worilds, and Sylvester, we may be okay. But, then again, what's going on with Woodley? Our defense needs first-round quality LB's and DE's more than first-round quality CBs.

Yeah, I'd love to see all the uproar over our picking Mendenhall over CJ 3 years ago. I doubt it existed at the time.

What's wrong with throwing the ball for red zone TDs, if running it constantly gets you stuffed at the goal line?

The Steelers need to adapt a stop thinking that they are still playing in the 70s.
I do believe we just won our 6th title?!?!?!
