Default Re: Who do you want on day 2 of the draft?

I wish the Steelers would have snagged Harris (although if he is that good what was he doing still hanging around with pick #60?)

But with the Steelers we need to recognize that the strategy is not to roll the dice for one season - so you will not see the Steelers do what the Falcons did last night and tank the draft to get one non-QB player to try and win it all once

Although he came close to blowing it up last spring, Steelers have a franchise QB for probably 5 more years - in today's NFL that is what is necessary to win Lombardis

So if the Steelers do not get a CB out of this draft and 2011 is not good year (see, e.g, 2006 and 2009) the theory is they look to compete in 2012-2015 and draft a CB next year

This front office has 2 Lombardis, 3 Super Bowl appearances, and 4 AFC championship appearances since #7 arrived over the last 7 seasons while replacing a very good HC - consider the possibility they know what they are doing in the draft

BTW, Green Bay throwing on almost every down is called "A Game Plan"

The Super Bowl coverage sorta hinted that they would do that because our PASS DEFENSE was considered below average. I'll let you in on a another big secret... most of the media points out that we don't have a pass D.

Peter King:
Some guys should be Steelers. Cam Heyward fits very well there. He's a versatile defensive end who can play the run well and penetrate well to bother the passer. Might be the long-term replacement for Brett Keisel, who turns 33 in September. But I'm like everyone else: I think Pittsburgh should have gone corner here, with such a desperate need at the position, or offensive tackle.

I totally agree Atlanta.. but you've got to admit our secondary is looking worse by the minute. If we lose Ike, it's gonna be bad.

I just don't think the draft was what we needed but we'll see.

I really think they might snag 2-3 CB's during the Free Agency period. ( I know they never sign free agents) but it's the only way I see the DB's being competitive. Please Lord, let Troy P. be injury free.

For someone with such organic vision and advanced vision you sure do use the media A LOT to back up your unique perspectives on why the steelers will be torched all year long and how bad the CB's are and how silly KC is for not drafting Williams, and not trading up for Ras, etc. etc.. etc.....

Judging by the user name I don't think kitties are what trips this persons trigger.

Actually, I just picked the first quote from many media, football analysts, as well as many people here. Also, pretty much the only thing this team has huge problems with is Belisuck and that damn spread does on us.

Have you been watching our games then you'll know it's pretty much the only major problem area we have.

Never said they would be torched all year. I said we can't be Elite Qb's using the spread and we've done nothing in since Arizona to fix it.

Anyway, sorry for saying anything negative about the Steelers because obviously they are perfect and your not a fan otherwise.
