There were no pads and no hitting, although someone had to explain that to rookie cornerback Bryant McFadden, who looked as if he wanted to knock someone's head off over the weekend.

McFadden, a second-round draft pick from Florida State, had a bang-up minicamp in more ways than one. He took a few liberties on the field, including a full-body bump with wide receiver Cedrick Wilson on the final play.

"Bryant has been impressive in the three days that he has been here," coach Bill Cowher said as minicamp came to a close with one practice yesterday morning. "He is very bright and has picked it up quickly. I like the demeanor that he has exhibited on the field."

IMO...It was his first time on the field, and he impressed the coaches/media. I think he will be in the mix when it comes time to pick a starter.

Nope... he waited a long time behind bruener to get significant playing time, now he's got it and he better step up to the challenge. At this point though, unless Miller makes a tremendous splash in camp; Jerame will get the nod for atleast the beginning of the season. And even then, Miller still needs to work on his blocking at the NFL level.

WEll we were all a little off. Gibson and Cobb are both history.
Kimo is starting and playing well
Ike never did compete for the nickel or dime role, just went straight to starter.
Heath has come up big.
Tommyvs.Batch, winner goes to Batch neither has been awesome.
Hagans and Harrison both have played well.
And Willie didn`t beat out Haynes as a third down back, that wasnt good enough

Couldn`t agree more! And the thread was started back in May, I think, with some incredible insight from BB2W. And we were lucky enough to improve in some of those roster battles, its also a showing of our teams depth. If we were always right on our predictions, then we would be the coaches.
