Junior Seau is not human, he's a Terminator T-100 model I believe.

Once Ziggy and Hayward get in the flow of things, you'll see the LBs making alot more plays.

pissy? its called retorting. what i find comical is the way steeler fans look at all their players with rose colored glasses.

i weed out responses like yours which add nothing and take what actual fans say and continue the debate,

I think the replies have been far more realistic than your pessimistic outlook.

Im not sure the coaches are sold on sylvester or he would have played last year.
Money will probably exile Harrison before age.
Foote is very average but steady.
Woodley and Timmons are entering their prime. Not in it yet.
Worilds seems to be ok...Not seen anything special yet.

And when that happens, the Cardinals will surely swoop in and sign him.

i forget who said it ...but how is it a weekness when more then 1/2 the teams in the league would trade there LBs for the Steelers LBs ... come on ppl ...

i know the end of an era of Farrior, Hampton, and these guys got a lot of fans unsteady ...but the reality is the Organization has been preparing for this Turnover in the D...

How bad guys like Worilds and them are ...but they played a lot last year and we still had the #1 Def. in the league ... come on ppl some times fans get spoiled and if they see a little bit of a drop off they start to panic ...

Worilds is solid and has potential ...
Sly has tons of potential and lost 20lbs i think he said
Carter has a ton of pass rushing potential
and Timmons was worth the 1st roundpick ... I'm not going to give a whole bunch of stats ... but i think i would rather take the coaches words over some over reacted fans

who is your source to say that half the league would want our linebackers? thats just an unrealistic comment. carter showed potential? he didnt come within 5 yards of the qb. inh fact in his short stint he led the league in getting his face planted into the ground.

just because we want to believe something doesnt make it true. Sylvestor has tons of potential? tons?

Ok, so okay according to this forum: Our DL was a weakness, old, slow, lazy, and depleted by injuries. Add to that our defensive backfield is not so hot either and the only reason they did so well statistically was because teams didn't have to pass against us because they could run at will. And oh yeah, our linebackers are also a weakness. Who does that leave out? No, that covers it, our entire defense is old, slow, depleted and a weakness.

Remind me where they finished the season?

Jeez people, are you watching the same games I am? Do you watch any other games other than the Steelers and see what they are doing/playing like? sigh....
