that "- or last year" part is what is really frustrating - this is becoming a norm instead of an instance here or there - WTF!!!!!?????

I really liked Russell Wilson, although I really doubted he'd last past R3. I also liked Kirk Cousins, and then Washington took him. Lastly, I liked Ryan Lindley... who went to Arizona.

Now, Lindley will likely be cut by the Cardinals. And, I say that the Steelers grab him. Why?... you ask, after watching him play horribly as a rookie.

1) This year's crop of QBs is not very good... even for back-ups.

2) Lindley was a rookie, playing behind the worst O-line in the NFL... against the strong defenses in the NFC West. That woudl make ANY QB look bad.

3) Lindley is a BB clone, only not nearly as good... which is the perfect thing for a back-up. He plays the same style as BB, has the same body-type, and has a powerful arm... a "poor man's" version of BB.

IF a QB is taken in this draft, I like Nassib (although, I had him going in late R2... but, there is talk of him going as early as 8th overall). In the later rounds, I like Alex Carder. Zac Dysert is also another option... and that's about it (unless the Steelers use a pick in R1 or R2).

Thus, in summation, sign Lindley, and draft a QB next year.

If Wilson from Arkansas is avalaible in the R2 I'd take him in a heart beat he kinda had a bad year last year but that was thanks to coach Patrino for fucking his assistant and getting fired just before the season started

I love everything Colbert has put out there since the end of the season.
At 8-8 can't be business as usual. At 8-8 go BPA every round, surely there are enough weak spots and holes to fill.

No doubt... but, he'll go top 20. All fo these guys I'd take in R2... if they dropped. They are good R2 picks (do nto get me wrong)... and in other years, they would indeed be R2 picks. This year, since the QB crop is weak, they will go R1.

Make sense?

Geno Smith
Tyler Wilson
Mike Glennon
Matt Barkley
Ryan Nassib

Taking a QB in this class is a waste of a pick. If we wanted one, we should've taken someone like Cousins in the third / fourth round last year. The only quarterback worth anything coming out of college this year is Geno Smith.

We think alike... once again.

As I stated elsewhere: Cousins, I thought that we were goign to get; I wanted Wilson; and thought that Lindley was a good fit.

So what should the Steelers do?Wait till Ben gets hurt next season then give Leftwich the reins and watch him drive the team into the ground? I don't get how drafting a QB is a waste, seems that we could get the SS or the ILB we draft in the 1st round to play QB when Ben goes down

Drafting a QB is a waste when there isn't any good one for you to draft.

I think the Steelers will get it right, they know they need a QB and they will get one
