Yes, that's true. I wonder whether it's been a run of bad luck picks, or bad skill at picking. Whatever it is, it's been a bad run.l.

Now... why was the O-line ignored until 2010? They seemed to like The Colon... and when not playing like an ass, Kemo was a great blocker. Lastly, Starks has been solid for a long while. Now, the other spots on the O-line have been horrid... which makes me wonder how Urbik was let go.

Regardless, I'm happy now.
Yes, I'm very pleased with the potential of Adams/DD, and Pouncey of course. Beechum coud be a find. Looking forward to seeing those guys healthy and kicking butt! But I'm concerned that Gilbert might be a swing and a miss given his big step backward last year.

As for the others - nice to see that Starks finally started takiing things seriously the past two years, once he was almost out of the NFL. Too little, too late - it would have been nice to see that effort during his seven slothful years here. As for Colon - well, now we know that his natural position isn't OT or OG; since we have a center, he can go draw penalties somewhere else when healthy. As for Chemo, I never say anything there. I like Legursky's effort and flexibility. Foster is another low effort player, but he's OK for depth - but only if very cheap.

I sure hope that Spence will be a big contributor, cause we need young LBs to step up. But that was a big injury ...

Everybody needs to relax, the Organization has dealt with change in the past, will have to deal with change in the future as well. Have faith in the F/O, they've been doing this for years. And lets remember, this is the same organization that made it to three SuperBowls recently, winning two of them. It wouldn't surprise me at all if the following players had to take a pay cut to play in 2013:

1. Troy P.
2. James Harrison

I think the following players will either have to take a pay cut or restructure their contracts:

1. James Harrison
2. Troy P.
3. Ike Taylor

Don't count on the Steelers taking the kid out of West Virginia, they will attempt to go with a larger WR in the mold of Boldin and Fitzgerald. The Steelers will be fine.

Amen on the relax part. I've never seen so much of Steeler Nation spaz out of a .500 season before. I have faith, but I'm not expecting it all to be resolved in one year.
