Welcome S.Homes.
Your quarterback is Ben roethlisberger. Make him look good and he will make you look good!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

i love this idea. assuming his failed drug test has been cleared up as he said.

the best thing about the s. holmes pick is that it is a definite vote of confidence for ben and w. parker. despite what holmes contributes in the upcoming season, i love the message that this pick sends to our future offensive stallwarts (hopefully).
adding l. white on offense will definitely be more productive than adding a player on defense. a defensive pick is really just planning for a year after next.

Who would you compare him to in the NFL? His OSU average is pretty sick but in a run offense.

I don't think we overpaid. If we didn't have the extra 4th rounders then I be questioning the cost.

I think we would have to give up a pick next year to move up in the second to get White. Want it. But doubt it will happen.

Finally a legit 1st rounder at WR, Troy Edwards we pulled the trigger way to soon, I think they wanted him and new he wouldnt be around in the second round, but we took him to early. Plax had one great game, and it was Mich State bowl game he went off, we saw it and pounced on him, another wr, that went way earlier than he should have. But with Holmes he is the real deal. El is gone but we upgraded already. El was sort of a third Wr anyway, even if he starts off as a third, huge upgrade.

Rooneys, Cowher, all the Front Office Thank you, gutsy move. Not to often we move up in the first round, Troy Polamula, but when we do we score.

Steelers fans consider yourself lucky, i do .

After a little seasoning?
He has Reggie Wayne potential.

NE takes Chad Jackson after a trade, which shows what THAT kid is worth.

I still don't like his 10.2 in the West Coast Offense.
