if he was available would I take him for leadership alone?

That Crimson O-line looked NFL caliber next to what seemed like kids playing Div III football - so overly matched in size and strength it wasn't even fair really. You coudl have plugged in any of the next 3 teams and thereafter in NDs place and I think they would have gotten steamrolled as well last night.

Any 1st-2nd round TE prospects? Thinking because of Miller's injury he might not be ready to go at the beginning of the season.

Ertz from Stanford and Eifert from ND.

I would prefer us making a push to go and grab Martellus Bennett in free agency, though. Sure-hands and finds ways to get open in the red zone. He won't command a lot of cash which fits in perfectly for our current cap situation.

I think Farrior types work just fine, but Farrior lost a BIG step with his age. I agree initially I said I would trade up to 10get to get Te'o. I wouldn't after last.night but at 17the I would take him with my pick in under 10 seconds.

I would take the guy that whopped him , Chance Warmack ...and Cut Colon and sign Foster to be a swing backup

yes I know it will cost more this year since cutting Colon only frees up 1 mill... but it frees up space for later years

just a quick Mock

1 - Change Warmack - OG - Bama - the guys a beast enough said

2 - Logan Ryan - CB - Rutgers - Not necessarily a "need" but if he falls to us in the 2nd you can never have enough talented CBs and Ike will be a cap casualty soon...plus he plays like a Steeler

3 - Duke Williiams - SS - Nevada - good value here , sit behind troy and clark for a year and ready to take over

4 - Gerald Hodges - ILB - Penn State - would move inside most likely , but he's a beast

5- Michael Williams - TE - Bama - Great Run blocking TE with some Red zone ability

6 - Phillip Steward - OLB/ILB - Houston - not to sure if he played inside or outside or
really anything about him ... but his stats seem really interesting http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/...steward-1.html ... Interviews say he thinks he's best at pass coverage ...

7 - MarQueis Gray - WR - Minnesota - Big Body QB/WR , he played both in college ... maybe a project but he's a big body

Hi, I'm Stephen A Smith. You may remember me from such rants as "Kwame Brown has NO BUSINESS being near the ball in the 4th quarter" or "Jamarcus Russell has no shame." I love Martellus Bennett like a brother... it pains me to say this... but the Pittsburgh Steelers would be out of their minds to sign him!

Broken link brah! Are all the YouTube tags on this site down or are most of us just not using them properly? I'm confused.

They aren't being entered properly. You're supposed to enter just the video ID, not the entire URL.

Gotcha.

Lloyd, here's the video that you linked:

This just in, Stephen A. Smith is still a ranting lunatic that overreacts to everything in sports media. How these two even have jobs still is amazing to me. They love to talk and say absolutely nothing at all and yet, their fanbases are huge?
