Default To all you haters...

To all the people who didn't like the way the Steelers drafted this year, stop. Have faith/trust in your team. They know what theyre doing. Im pretty sure theyve got a good track record since cowhers been here. Of course there will be those busts, but cmon now, The Steelers have been the best drafting team the last 6 or 7 years.

I think theres something about that runningback position. Back when we drafted Polamalu, so many people wanted us to get Larry Johnson. We traded up, got our man Troy, and the chiefs got Larry. I remember looking at message boards and seeing people bitching over the fact we didnt get our runningback, but look at it now. Although Larry has proven to be dominant this past year, Polamalu was one of the (if not the) most important player to our Super Bowl team this year. LenDale White may have been a good fit for our team, but to me, and obviously to the steeler team, they wanted to bank on a WR and got their man Santonio Holmes. They fell in love with him, traded up to make sure they got him, and now hes a steeler. Live with it, love it. We all love the best team in the world, and have to trust in who they take. Theres my rant.

I havn't heard many Steelers complaining about trading up for Holmes. I for one love the move. Holmes was the guy I wanted the most out of this draft. But if a fan questions some picks doesn't mean they are hating or a less of a fan. I question some of the picks but overall I like the draft. I thought they went with to much offense but oh well. Steelers always draft well for the most part and this draft was no different. People are entitled to opinions. Think about that before going on a silly rant.

Huh? Who is hating? I think it's fair to say that we all love and believe in our Steelers. I know I sure do! We're just all giving our thoughts and opinions about the draft, that's all. As fans, aren't we entitled to that?

I agree with SteelerzGirl. For the most part I have seen a lot of positive talk about our draft. I think basically everyone here has tremendous faith in the FO.

That is pretty dumb to say that anyone who doesnt like a pick is hating on the Steelers F/O. There are a few picks i didnt like and i thought we could have used better. hopefully they will get those picks newt year or in F/A... the best pick in the draft i think was Humes in the 7th round and i was very happy because i thought he would have been gone sooner !!!

Wow, that's pretty interesting stuff about Larry Johnson. I guess it worked out for you, Polamalu is a very good player. But I think most teams would rather have Johnson. The guy could break the single season rushing record next year. I don't know if anyone has ever rushed for 2,000 yards in highschool, college and the pro levels, but this guy has a great shot at it. It's easier to get a good safety than it is to get a guy that can do what Johnson can do.

good luck with that then bengalsfan. you will never have either. most teams would not win the sb like the steelers have either, so you "guessed" correctly that it worked out for us.
