Post Pick 2 new Steelers' Pro Bowlers

Every year we have a couple new guys step it up to Pro Bowl level besides the Alan Faneca's, Jeff Hartings', Joey Porter's, and Troy's. My pick for 2 new Pro Bowlers for the Steelers this year is Heath Miller and Ike Taylor. With a great possibility that Ben will make it as well. Everybody keeps talking about the negatives with Santonio and Ben. Nobody looks at the positives. Heath, IMO, is a lock to have a great year. No one is really talking about him. He did phenominal in the playoffs and especially against the Colts. He had 6 TD's last year and over 35 catches, more than El. I think he will reach double digit TD's being that he is such a great red zone target. As for Ike Taylor, no on had more than 60 yds on him in the playoffs. This includes Marvin, Chad, Rod, and Darrell Jackson. How many Int's did he miss last year, 9 or 10? In the playoffs he starting picking balls off, aka. Denver and Seattle. That shows to me that he is learning. On top of that he is a workout warrior. He started working out 5 days after the Super Bowl! Are you kidding me?! Thats work ethic. The disappointment there is that he will command more money and will won't be able to sign him because we need to sign Troy and Ben. We finally get a lockdown corner and now we can't afford him. That shows just how much talent we have on this team.

What does eveyone else think?

Ike Taylor and Chris "The Finger" Gardocki. Cleveland's loss was most definitely our gain.

I definately think Ben has a shot as good as any to make it to the Pro Bowl this year, especially with the way our running game is looking. Let's face it, Our running game this year could be amazing, or it could be very lackluster. Willie only has 1 season behind him, and Duce could very well go out again. Couple that with Nate Washington being our official 3rd WR going into Training Camp and Santonio Holmes coming in, I think this could be Ben's best year so far, as far as Stats go.

Secondly, I think that if our passing game does flourish, that heath Miller has a good shot to go to the Pro Bowl. He's a tank, as we've all seen from his limited catches, and even though there are some elite TE's out there, I think Heath could have a break out year.

Ike does have a shot, but I think he, as well as McFadden, are still a year off from being Elite corners in the league. I think they'll be solid, even very good, but I don't think they'll make it to the Pro Bowl.

As far as our LB's go, We all know what they can do. They're great as a whole, but people like Foote, Farrior, and Haggans aren't gonna put up the kind of numbers to get them into the Pro Bowl, especially with people like Lofa Tatupu and Shawne Merriman coming into their prime. I'll be suprised if JP makes it this year.

What do you mean they won't put up the kind of numbers needed? Foote led the team in tackling, Farrior is only one season removed from being runner up for Defensive Player of the Year, and Haggans notched 9 sacks last year. Not to mention that Tatupu isn't even in the AFC. I think all four of our linebackers have a fair shot at making the Pro Bowl and would be very surprised if at least one didn't.
