Bostic is probably my favorite target for ILB this season.

tough call. I see him as a 2nd rounder, but he might not go until the 3rd. I see him as being on the same level as Minter and Te'o, with a higher ceiling than either

Im tempted to tell Sanders to enjoy New England. 3rd round WR for 4 years vs Sanders @ 1 year.

I think its a solid trade off. I like Sanders but at the same time, if he doesnt get enough PT then he will want to leave anyway. Pitt seems to be wizards with selecting WR's in the middle rounds

he would probably start for the Steelers this year, but I dont know if he can be the 2nd WR on this team. one rumor is that the offer is for $4M/yr, lol no.

Personally I would like him better as the slot guy and JC as the number 2. He is still with us right? I dont remember seeing anything about him leaving. Anyway you are right 4mill/yr is ridiculous. Lets hope we can nab a good WR in the 2-5th round.

I would too, but he is the 2nd best WR on the team. Right now its Brown, Sanders, Cotchery, Plex, Gilreath.

If he wants anything more than about $2m per season, then let him go. He hasn't shown the ability to stay consistently healthy.

to be honest, I'm perfectly ok with the Young Money Crew seeing their way out of Pittsburgh. I hated the moniker to begin with, the "me-first" attitude is part of what killed this team last season. We'll see how much of it was the petulent alligator-armed diva in Miami though.

supposedly $4M this year, which means he will get at least that much in 2014 and beyond.

no, he made the offer just large enough to force the Steelers hands. We either spend the rest of our $$$ this season and force a few restructures to get Sanders an extension, or we let him walk and Bili is only on the hook for a season.

I'm fine with a 3rd rounder, as long as we don't draft another safety-sized ILB

EJ Manuel, QB, FSU
Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan St
Tommy Bohanon, FB, Wake Forest

Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma
Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State

Luke Marquadt, OT, Azusa Pacific

and a somewhat realistic one, with only 1 trade down in an attempt to get the comp pick we'll receive for Sanders:

Round 1 Pick 31 (S.F.): DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson (B)
Round 2 Pick 2 (S.F.): Phillip Thomas, FS, Fresno State (B+)
Round 2 Pick 16: Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Mississippi (B-)
Round 3 Pick 17: Kiko Alonso, ILB, Oregon (A)
Round 3 Pick 31 (S.F.): Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State (B+)
Round 4 Pick 18: Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut (A)
Round 5 Pick 17: Joe Kruger, DE, Utah (E)
Round 6 Pick 18: Luke Marquardt, OT, Azusa Pacific (B-)
Round 6 Pick 38 (COMP): T.J. Barnes, DT, Georgia Tech (A)
Round 7 Pick 17: Quanterus Smith, DE, Western Kentucky (F)


For the points in the "game", I think the key is to click on the green tabs that are "biggest needs" and select the highest ranked player from NFL.com, while in the process moving down bit by bit and accumulating several draft picks. That's how you get 20+ Draft picks

normally, I'd try to fit Dave Quessenberry somewhere in that late 3rd-4th round area but this time he was taken

and here we go....basically the perfect draft (Which would never happen):
Round 1 Pick 31 (S.F.): Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame (A)
Round 2 Pick 10 (MIA): DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson (B+)
Round 2 Pick 16: Jonathan Cyprien, SS, Florida International (A)
Round 2 Pick 22 (MIA): Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State (B-)
Round 2 Pick 29 (S.F.): D.J. Swearinger, FS, South Carolina (C-)
Round 3 Pick 12 (S.F.): Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Mississippi (A-)
Round 3 Pick 15 (MIA): Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA (A)
Round 3 Pick 17: Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida (A)
Round 3 Pick 20 (MIA): Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall (C+)
Round 3 Pick 28 (DEN): Alvin Bailey, OG, Arkansas (C)

Round 4 Pick 18
Round 4 Pick 31 (S.F.)
Round 5 Pick 17
Round 6 Pick 18
Round 6 Pick 38 (COMP)
Round 7 Pick 17

Lol keth that reminds me of how I played NFL Head Coach with Cower on the cover. Its was the 2006 draft class and I traded and traded so I could get as many rookies as I could. I ended up with Bush, Huff, Hawk, VD, Holmes all in the first round. Not to mention a bunch of picks in the 2-4 rounds. I had an overhaul of rookies lol

so we're essentially 3 for 4

except 1 of those 3 is gone. if a 2nd left, we'd be, essentially, 1 for 4

yea this is a seller's draft, although it only takes one guy to fall and one team to really want a guy. I think I'd be ok with Eifert, still would rather get him in the 20s (of course) as 17 is pretty steep for a TE.

I like Brown too, but 17 still seems high for him

I thought that the team had a great pick in Sweed, but he couldn't take his eyes off the jumbotron! At least we know that Sanders can catch the ball. The team needs a safety real bad, so I am going with Vaccaro to learn from Troy and Ryan and take over soon from one of them!

At the time I was ecstatic with the picks of Mendenhall and Sweed, but of course now it looks ridiculous. Sweed had a bunch of talent coming out but couldnt stay on the damn field. Plus he was like Nate Washington as in he would make an awesome difficult reception and then drop 3 easy ones in a row.

I like that we kept Sanders as long as he can stay healthy. I think he can be a real weapon in the slot this year with dat der speed but we shall see. As far as Harrison goes, good luck playing in a 4-3 defense my friend. Idk how thats going to work.

you are right, we are to be patient. there are just a lot of red flags with Jones. His production is undeniable for sure but the reason 34 OLBs thrive here is b/c they used to be 43 DEs who lined up against tackles and could play the run. Jones is nothing like those guys, more a pure pass rusher.

Sweed was unreal value at the time, but his problem was as much mental as anything else.

I was the same way when they drafted Troy, but I was just a young phaggot back then, now Im an old phaggot.

Jones is going to be a slashing pass rusher who dominates or he will get swallowed up by LTs and suck.

the negativity around every pick is just mind numbing. everyone is a GM these days. Ill try to hold off until we see them play, but there is a reason why we have a keyboard and Colbert has a job.

every moron assumes who would be available and when.

that being said, there is some level of disconnect in the organization it seems...

--------
Bell lacks elite speed but that guy has some unreal agility for his size, he moves like a guy much, much smaller. plenty of 4.6 guys make it work, Foster ran a 4.7 fwiw.

Wheaton has a level of physicality that I like, he seems like a WR in a RB frame. He can be a deep threat guy early on. He does not strike me as being a soft guy ala Wallace.

Round 1: Jarvis Jones, OLB.
Super high effort guy and apparently a leader for Georgia's locker room, something we definitely need. Instinctive and a closer. He gets to the play and he makes the play. His grade will depend on how rigid or loose LeBeau plays him. If he tries to pigeonhole Jarvis as "the right outside linebacker" without giving him any latitude to move around, then Jones will not do well at all. That's not the type of player he is. If he moves Jones around in a bandit type of role, and schemes to get him some free runs into the backfield like what he does with timmons, we could have a rookie DPOY.
Arguably the 'best' 3-4 OLB fit in the draft, if you consider that he's already been playing 3-4 OLB so he won't have to do much transition. If he adds 10 lbs on an NFL weight room and 'supplement' program, and if LeBeau moves him around to create mismatches, we may have our next sack leader. WORST CASE SCENARIO, Worilds and Woodley are on high alert. Everyone is looking at this as a "GTFO Worilds", but Worilds looked ok at LOLB, not so much at ROLB. Perhaps this is a future cap move, if the overweight, undereffort hamstring boy in my signature doesn't get his act together.
Grade: A+ or C, depending on Mr. LeBeau

Round 2: Le'Veon Bell, RB.
2nd favorite RB in the draft, knowing that Lacey had some medical red flags. He and Johnathan Franklin were the 2 most pro-ready RBs coming out because of their hands and blocking ability. A true 3-down RB and bellcow with no injury concerns. Round 2 seems high, but only in the draftnik minds. It's no coincidence that Montee Ball, a slower, less agile version of Bell without the hands or pass pro skills, went only a few picks later. Bell wasn't a reach if you consider that he would've been gone. Of course, I like Franklin a bit better due to his elusiveness and incredible speed, but I get why they went with Bell, who is a much bigger RB with good (not great) vision. 250 carries, 50 receptions. Haley, make it so!
Grade: A-

Round 3: Markus Wheaton, WR.
Solid pick. I'd like to see some size, as he brings to the table what we had hoped Emmanuel Sanders would bring. He is a faster version of Antonio Brown with much higher football IQ and route running ability.
Grade: B+

Round 4: Shamarko Thomas, SS
Lower. The. Boom. Favorite pick of the draft for us, Thomas is a super high-character guy with an impressive life story. Bob Sanders. Hopefully he continues to play like Bob Sanders without the injuries. He will fill Troy Polamalu's role nicely. This stat line from his senior season wraps up what he is all about:
led team in tackles
led team in interceptions (2)
led team in forced fumbles (3)
and he added 3 sacks and about half a dozen QB pressures.
Grade: A+

Round 4: Landry Jones, QB.
I'm torn on this one. Jones is a buckler. He buckles under pressure, and I'm just not sure this was the greatest pick. I can see him coming in and doing well as he has tremendous arm talent but he has far too much Gabbert jittery-ness to him for my tastes, especially considering the talent remaining on the board
Grade: C-

Round 5: Terry Hawthorne, CB.
A guy with good hands, hopefully our next nickel CB since it seems Curtis Brown isn't progressing as hoped (3rd season Keenan Lewis perhaps?)
Grade: B-

Round 6: Justin Brown, WR.
Well, he had a really productive senior season with Oklahoma as Landry Jones' 2nd favorite WR behind Kenny Stills (73 rec, 879 yds, 5 TDs). Surprisingly enough for a tall lurpee guy has some good short-range quickness skills and was a pretty good return guy for the Sooners on the few occasions they used him as such. Not sure if this was one of those things that they decided to go with a guy that Jones was familiar with or what.
Grade: C-

Round 6: Vince Williams, ILB.
Fast, instinctive signal caller. Hits like a ton of bricks. Better in coverage than I originally expected. Love this pick, and I think he might end up taking over for Foote.
Grade: B+

Round 7: Nick Williams, DE.
Athletic and long-armed prospect. Definitely worth a 7th round flyer. Could be our next Brett Keisel, i.e. a late round guy with impressive measurables and attitude with longass arms. :D
Grade: meh, it's a 7th rounder

Overall: Grade B+
We needed a pass rusher. Jarvis Jones, 3-4 OLB and sack leader in the toughest conference in the NCAA
We needed a RB. Le'Veon Bell, 230 lbs with decent quicks, great hands, and pro-ready pass protection skillset.
We needed a WR to replace Wallace and the impending departure of Sanders. Would've preferred the 3rd for Sanders, but I digress. We got the replacement.
We needed a safety. We got Bob Sanders Jr.
We needed an ILB. We got a guy that I've loved, who showed the smarts to call the signals for a defense ranked 3rd nationally vs. the run, 1st vs. the pass, 2nd overall behind only Alabama.

We needed leadership. We drafted 5 team captains.
3 on defense (JJones, Shamarko Thomas, Vince Williams), 2 on offense (Markus Wheaton, Landry Jones)

Pretty impressive overall

I loved the late round picks for us, and after a few days I am starting to like the draft as a whole. Like you said keth, if Jones is used correctly he could be a force. I said it earlier that I was shaky on Bell but I understand why Pittsburgh pulled the trigger. Im hoping the dude can succeed because we need a RB like nobody's business.

I loved the picks of Thomas, Brown, and Williams. Thomas is a beast and can play for Troy when he misses his inevitable few games this season and take the starting job when Troy calls it quits in the future. Brown is a huge receiver and I thank god we finally drafted another big target for Ben. Now we have Heath, Spaeth, Plex, and now Brown for those jump balls in the redzone. And I didnt know much about Williams but after watching a few videos I am happy to have him. Dude could be a serious steal to plug into the starting lineup next to Timmons sooner rather than later

As for Landry Jones....well we needed a backup QB. Ben misses at least 1 game every single year and I am tired of seeing old man Batch who is our QB coach in reality and fatass Byron take the snaps.

you guys are going to warm to Le'Veon Bell. I think he's an honest dark horse candidate for OROY.

my only drawback to Bell was being taken 48th, but Ball went just a little later and Bell >>>>>>> Ball imo

if Bell was a tad faster he wouldve been the clearcut #1. He has size, agility, hands, very smooth runner. I love the way he runs, he can move side to side so well for his size but he isnt scared to run straight ahead ala Mendy.

exactly. 4.5 for a 230-lb'er isn't bad at all. His numbers were pretty impressive. Christine Michael was the only one who had size and impressive numbers, but Bell had production, whereas Michael has been a headcase for awhile now

Hi guys, New Steelers fan from Australia here, I too am happy with the draft, I think we did quite well. I don't get to watch many games, and I am still learning lots about NFL.
But I have watched a few Sooners games on Youtube, And i think I like the Landry Jones pick, I mean you guys would know more about him than me, But wasn't this years QB selection in the draft fairly weak overall? From what I heard Geno's Work ethic was fairly poor, and I don't think you can really teach that. Sure landry buckles under pressure, But, I think confidence is something that can be worked on, Ben likes to hold on to the ball a lot, but he has good sense of pressure in the pocket, How is our O-Line looking this season? Is De-Castro fit to play? I think if our O-Line can keep the pocket strong maybe Landry wont feel too pressured to release the ball so quickly.

Anyway, It's hard to predict who would be taken at each number. I like our RB pick too.
Bernard: Tore his ACL in 2010, and has a suspected knee injury.
Lacy: has a fused toe, I don't know how bad that is, but they declined him because of it.
Scouts said :Weaknesses
Doesn't always make the best decisions as a runner, will miss openings. Not tremendously dynamic. Inconsistent as a blocker, doesn't attack his target.
Ball: Was classed as Just average.
Christine:Has already had a broken leg and a torn ACL, and missed 2 seasons of football.
Lattimore: Well we all know what happened to his knee, So I think it's a risk, But I really hope he does well personally. But at the end of the day, We need an RB for this season.

kethnaab
04-30-2013, 01:19 PM
yep, Bell was a solid decision. I wanted Franklin and was willing to wait, but I totally understand why we did what we did

this year's QB class was very weak. Landry Jones has everything you want in a QB except a set of brass balls. HE gets jittery in the pocket when he feels any pressure from the defensive line/linebackers. He feels pressure that isn't there too often.

DeCastro should be in excellent shape this camp judging from his work ethic. He was overwhelmed when he was thrown into a really bad situation last season after coming off a torn knee and getting thrown into an already-injury-plagued offensive line.

Batch said something about landry being groomed to take Ben's spot, Not sure if he will It's hard to say. I know people say he crumble too easily but part of me really wants him to prove people wrong you know. It's not so I can go "Ha, I was right" It's so that his pick wasn't a wasted choice and we actually get a QB that can take over if Ben gets injured or retires, I think with the right coaching and tutoring he might do well.

kethnaab
05-04-2013, 08:53 PM
So lately it's been a bit of an oddity with me, this strange feeling of optimism. I can honestly say I'm more optimistic after this year's draft than any since 2004. I have a few ideas as to why this is true:

1) Offensive line - I am quite confident the offensive line will come together this season and avoid injury (somewhat). During the healthy stretch last season, we managed to put up several extremely strong performances in the run game with low-talent/low-heart players like Isaac Redman/Jonathan Dwyer

2) Coinciding with #1, I'm really happy about the LeVeon Bell pick. He is an ideal match for the system, moreso than Eddie Lacey simply because his hands and pass pro are already NFL-ready. I like Lacey a bit more as a bullish runner between the tackles, but Bell has good feet and shiftiness and a bit more speed. Knowing that Lacey had a health red flag is enough to make me perfectly happy with Bell

3) Our WR corps this year and moving forward is possibly becoming a strength again. Sanders will be playing for a contract and I really like Wheaton who is, again, a fairly pro-ready WR as far as route running and understanding route concepts. Breaston might be a solid addition to the mix as well

4) Another year under Haley's offense for Ben and the entire offensive line should do wonders for their execution of the playbook, as should a reduction in Wallace-whining and missing the Brucey.

5) The addition of Shamarko Thomas and Terry Hawthorne adds a TON of breakneck speed to our secondary, something we've been somewhat lacking in. This will be the first off-season that Carnell Lake gets to work his magic on Curtis Brown. If he can manage to stay healthy, we will be able to transition into a changing of the guard in the secondary, with Cortez Allen, Hawthorne, and Brown at the 3x CB slots, and Shamarko/Golden at SS/FS.

6) The removal of suspected locker room cancer Mike Wallace and his bestest boyhood chum Keenan Lewis, plus the addition of 4x team captains (Vince Williams, Shark, DawgBones, and Wheaton) has got to provide a boost to the locker room

7) Vince Williams - Many of you know (Especially in FFMD) that I'm a huge Vince Williams fan. we may have found our Larry Foote replacement, a signal caller and defensive captain for the #2 defense in the nation last year behind only Alabama. Obviously won't happen this year, but I think he can be a real contributor as a future defensive captain

8) Woodley and Worilds being well-conditioned. Call me crazy, but I believe the first-round addition of Jarvis Jones should have put both of them on alert. 2 OLB slots, 3 OLBs. We don't rotate much. At the very least, Worilds has to know his position on the team is in jeopardy. If a 1st round draft pick at YOUR POSITION isn't enough to wake you up and bring out your best, nothing is.


Now certainly there is much to worry about. Will Ben truly 'buy in' on the offense? Will Woodley actually hit camp at OLB weight instead of DT/5-tech weight? Will Troy remain healthy long enough for Shark to get his feet under him and get up to speed with the NFL game? Will Jarvis Jones be allowed to move around to take advantage of mismatches, or will he be stuck in the same static ROLB position that Deebo was his entire career here? Will Cam Heyward see the field more than 10-15 snaps per game, on average? Will the NT position be solidified or will it crumble?

Dunno the answers, but I"m looking forward to finding out

DirtyMac
05-05-2013, 12:43 AM
I agree with all of Kethnaab's points and I think we will reach the Playoffs. The thing I liked about Wheaton is his ability to hold on to the ball after being tackled. also I don't know who Breaston is, but apparently he is an Awesome slot receiver and if so then he will be a great mentor to the new WR's we picked up. Just need Heath Miller to come back strong, We are looking good.

I would say that they tried to keep an aging core of players together and coupled with some bad draft picks there is a bit of a talent/age gap at the moment, but nothing that cannot be corrected in a few good draft classes.

having Ben (or any franchise QB) makes a team very competitive.

in the run game, he's a guy who can wall off the guy who lines up across from him, but he will get no movement in the run game

Yeah I think Troy has to take some of the blame there, but Gay still got burned. Gay isn't the an elite DB by any means, but when used correctly he is serviceable. He is strictly a slot guy, that should never be left on an island. I know he was covering the slot on that play, but there are few teams in the NFL with slot guys of Victor Cruz's caliber.

On a separate note, I really wish the Steelers would get some o-line depth, they don't have enough capable linemen, and no tight ends left to help block.

Troy ALWAYS takes the blame for it. You can trust him about as far as you can throw him when he tells people "it's his fault".

Gay was in trail coverage and got beat. Clark was shading over toward the CB with about 6 career snaps. Troy was doing what he does. He's not a deep centerfielder. He had no business being anywhere near the ball, but that doesn't matter to him. Darn near every time turds like Gay, Anthony Madison, or Tyrone Carter get beat, you'll see the hairball fly into the screen from halfway across the screen, but somehow it's Troy's fault.

Right.

If Troy is on the field, he takes responsibility for it. Doesn't mean it's true. Dude can't cover for EVERY $hitbag this team brings back for no apparent reason.

Ups:

1. Shamarko Thomas - missile....please keep your head up, no more concussions, I want you around for the next decade

2. NT depth - I'm really liking it. Ta'amu and Fangupo are still developing but they flash serious 2-gap ability. McLendon and Woods both are more 1-techs than 2-gappers but they are still able to be fairly disruptive at the LoS

3. DE depth - we can roll 2 lines, legitimately, of starting caliber, and still have an extra wave guy. Arnfeldt needs to stop giving up his back though and if Ta'amu can learn to consistently protect his numbers, he'll be a brute

4. William Gay got beat again for a TD - eventually the apologists will run out of excuses and we will come to our senses...again... and send him on his way....again. That's a good thing IMHO. In Gay's defense, it was a nice pass and a nice catch.

5. Guy Whimper got abused - again...and again...and again. When you see Whimper get absolutely mauled by 2nd and 3rd stringers over and over and over again, you have to think that Colbert is going to hit the waiver wire with our $5m cap space. As bad as he is as an OT, he's even worse as an OG. Interesting, and painful. Hopefully this shines a spotlight on what should be addition by subtraction.

6. Wheaton and Sanders - if healthy, those 2 could make for a helluva trio along with Brown. Unfortunately, we still don't have a big body for the end zone

7. Woodley - nice to see you again, 2008-2010

Downs:

1. Bell getting injured - figures...dude never misses a practice dating back to junior high, and now he sprains an MCL/PCL and might have a lisfranc

2. Pouncey - WTF. Is he believing his own press or something? What in the world is going on with him? It's great that he has the quickness to get downfield and block LBs but he has to block DL too, and he seems far too willing to concede that one

3. TE situation - wow. Just...wow. I wanted Eifert in the first, partially because of our TE situation and Heath's age plus injury. We might end up needing to go 3 wides with a FB as our base offense, except....

4. RB/FB injuries...even Will Johnson got in on the injury action. Bruce, why do you hate Will Johnson so much?

5. Lack of OL consistency. Adams, DeCastro, and Gilbert were up and down all evening. Consistency on the OL is what helps win football games. How they could look so good against the NYG last week and so bad this week is confusing to me

6. Rex Grossman looked really good against what was primarily our 1s. Yes, it's preseason, but still, a bit scary.

Tentative

1. Jarvis Jones - doesn't beat anybody, but does seem to be around the ball and manages to cause disruption. After awhile, you can't just blame it on luck

2. Dwyer - fumble aside, he was decent yesterday, although he still leaves yards on the field far too often. He reported initially in the spring weighing 235, then ballooned up to 260 through June until camp broke, then lost the weight again. DO. NOT. TRUST.

3. Ike Taylor - I bash Gay *ahem* but Ike is getting his ass whupped as well.

4. Robert Golden - I'm liking what I see for the most part but he still has to get better with the angles he takes back there. Roy Helu says "hello"

5. Larry Foote - Timmons has 6 seasons of experience. We have half a dozen ILBs with at least twice the ceiling that Foote has. I'm not a Foote hater, but he ultimately limits what we can do with Timmons because he is a liability in coverage and average vs. the run. He blitzes well, but not as well as Timmons, and honestly, he doesn't have the pop that McFadden and Williams (and heck, even Rolle and Kion Wilson) have

And so it begins:

Le'Veon Bell...our 6-8 weeks (possibly more) with a Lisfranc Injury.

so frsutrating. 1 of my top 3 RBs this season, probably the best fit for the Steelers, NEVER injured throughout college and high school. damn damn damn.


I have always liked Foote, but honestly I'd like to see McFadden on the field more and see what he really can offer.
I also think that Woods should be starting over Hood, and they need to get Shamarko Thomas on the field as much as possible. The D needs an injection of new faces, younger players that can be difference makers.


if this team falls below .500 early they should go to the younger guys. so sick of marginal guys getting the call over and over

LeBeau likes his security blanket vets even if they aren't really very good. Foote and Gay are examples.

if I was the boss, I'd get Shamarko Thomas and Robert Golden as much play time as possible @ the slot CB position, and I would get both McFadden and Vince Williams as much time as possible at the buck ILB position.

my "vision" for our DL if I had my druthers:

this year

Heyward (Ziggy) -- Steve McLendon (Islander Twins) -- Brett Keisel (Heyward)

Arnfeldt and Nick Williams to practice squad

Let Keisel go along his merry way unless he agrees to a very hometown-discount friendly contract. Let Ziggy go to a 4-3 team where he belongs. Then next year (and for the foreseeable future):

Heyward (Al Woods) -- Islander 1 (Islander 2) -- McLendon (Brian Arnfeldt/Nick Williams)



This this this. With the changes in personnel and the injuries upon injuries this season could get ugly. I obviously hope we can pull through but if not why not give the young guns the nod.....Clowney time!

we'd be set for a Carroll 4-3 at that time

LDE Heyward - 3-tech McLendon - 1-tech Islander - LEO Clowney

SLB - Woodley - MLB Timmons - WLB Jarvis Jones

Latest reports are its not Lisfranc. 6-8 week estimate did not come from the steelers according to Tomlin. Bell is already working out a little bit on it, they said the news gets better and better everyday.

Chris Wells has a vagina.

Willis McGahee is ancient.

Steve Slaton isn't talented.

Jahvid Best...well, his situation is unfortunate. Not a Felix Jones fan, but I think that yuo, along with several others, are drastically exaggerating his issues. He won't stay healthy long, but we only need him to stay healthy until the bye so Bell can come back after the bye

****. Out for the season?? Out offense is atrocious, take pounced out and it makes it much worse

Steelers ILB Larry Foote is out for the season after tearing his bicep in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Tennessee.
It's a blow to Pittsburgh's run defense, as they may now have to fall back on sixth-round rookie Vince Williams next to Lawrence Timmons. Foote, 34, was re-signed to a three-year, $5.5 million contract in the offseason. The Steelers also lost C Maurkice Pouncey to a year-ending injury in the opener

Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and MCL, and is out for the season.
It's a devastating injury for the Steelers. Pouncey, a three-time Pro Bowler and 2011 All-Pro, was the lynchpin of a very thin and shaky offensive line. After he went out eight plays into Sunday's opener, the unit crumbled and allowed Ben Roethlisberger to get sacked five times. Kelvin Beachum is a major downgrade.

a. Plaxico Burress out for the year with a torn rotator cuff
b. Pouncey out for the year with a torn ACL and MCL
c. Foote out for the year with a torn bicep
d. Larod Stephens-Howling out for the year with a torn ACL
e. Shaun Suisham out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury

a. Steelers placed WR Plaxico Burress on injured reserve with a torn rotator cuff, ending his season.It's likely the end of the line for the 36-year-old wideout, who was lucky to even be on a roster. If Plax has indeed played his final down, he finishes with 553 career catches for 8,499 yards and 64 touchdowns. Burress' career year came in 2002 with the Steelers, where he went 78/1,325/7. His numbers would have been far gaudier if not for the prison sentence that cost Plax all of 2009-10.

b. Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and MCL, and is out for the season.
It's a devastating injury for the Steelers. Pouncey, a three-time Pro Bowler and 2011 All-Pro, was the lynchpin of a very thin and shaky offensive line.

Foote, 34, was re-signed to a three-year, $5.5 million contract in the offseason. The Steelers also lost C Maurkice Pouncey to a year-ending injury in the opener

d. Steelers RB/KR La'Rod Stephens-Howling is out for the season with a torn ACL.
Not only did Pittsburgh lose its home opener to the Titans, the Steelers lost C Maurkice Pouncey, ILB Larry Foote, and Stephens-Howling to year-ending injuries. A somewhat dynamic scatback and Pro Bowl-caliber return specialist, Stephens-Howling's loss will be felt more in real life than fantasy. But it's a big blow. Look for the Steelers to continue to lean on Isaac Redman and Felix Jones in the backfield until Le'Veon Bell (foot) returns. They may consider re-signing Baron Batch or Jonathan Dwyer, though it's also possible the Steelers turned the page on Dwyer for good at final cuts.

e. Steelers K Shaun Suisham sustained a hamstring injury Sunday and could miss a few weeks.
Suisham kicked just one extra point and didn't attempt a field goal in the loss to the Titans. FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo suggests Shayne Graham as a possible replacement. Given how poor the Steelers' offense looked Sunday, it's a fantasy kicking situation to avoid.

this^^^ (except it was 1993, not 2005)



So on first watch, a few points

1. I don't judge line play without All-22. Off hand, it looked like we were getting pressure on passing downs just fine, but our run fits are hurting. Gotta see what is up.
2. I noticed a strong rotation along the DL. Saw Heyward and Woods in there quite a bit.
3. Troy is healthy
4. Antonio Brown is a stud
5. Redman blew his chance to do...anything. Felix Jones will start next game I'm willing to bet. Really asinine that he didn't touch the ball this week.
6. William Gay played relatively well from what I saw.
7. Seemed like most of the pressure by the Titans was coming off interior line stunts, which is exactly how I'd attack an offense with an inexperienced center playing his first game at the position.
8. Jason Worilds is useless. He was invisible, except when he made Jackie Battle look like Jerome Bettis.
9. Emmanuel Sanders has VERY inconsistent hands. He had a few excellent catches today and then a few that he simply has to catch
10. Cotchery still has gas in the tank

remember, the Titans now have arguably the best offensive line in the NFL, and we still held them to 2.7 YPC

Kemoeatu, yes he took a penalty on the drive to put us another 5 yards back.

this was after Hartwig gave up a safety for holding in our own end zone


At least Keaumato (sp) was a hell of a run blocker and he had an attitude.

no he wasn't. He made 1 or 2 blocks on pulls that made people go "wow", but for a guy his size, he did NOT anchor very well and didn't get much movement on the OL with any consistency at all


I hated Colon and Kemo for them diving into a pile and getting 15 yard personal fouls. so stupid.

i hated them for a variety of things.

Colbert's inability to bring in competent linemen has gotten ridiculous. We've been a laughingstock of incompetency for awhile. Our OL was starting to come together, very slowly, but now we need a center.

Is DeCastro playing? Hows he doing back from injury. Spose to be Hutch like coming out of the draft



lol wut. just wait, he is too much of a pussy to ever reach his potential.

What you mean. He seems to be always dinged up, but hes started and contributed both games thus far and did a solid job in each. I saw no pussness. He lowered his head and was running through guys.

Zero running game, mediocre offensive line (though they did OKAY tonight), mediocre receivers, no real tight end with Heath out (nice fumble Paulson, big early momentum shifter), defense is meh. They do not force ANY freaking turnovers. And, of course, the offense just loves to turn the ball over, in key situations too.

Ben hasn't even played all that well in either game. This has to be one of the worst Steelers teams in a while.

Defense actually looked decent.


Oline did decent pass protection but can't run block. Jones had flashes of decentness while dywer did good on 3rd downs. Need a consistent starter tho. I love our young wrs but they need some growing up to do, missed opportunities.

Rough game for sure. At some point they will need the run to actually be effective.

it's just ****ing depressing. I knew they might struggle this year, but my god. At least with the Pirates or Mariners we kind of expect it.

edit: want to rethink that after than INT?>

i've watched every snap of every game since I was 10.. whether it was by video or live.. and this year I watch the first game, watched one quarter of the 2nd game, and have this game on in the background. I can't believe how uninterested i've become in this team.

Man we're gonna be into some deep rebuilding.

Best case: bell turns into a stud and we just need an Oline and slowly more youth on D


Worst case: well, idk if it can get worse.




We're all gonna make it

If it is any take away, they have been playing better with each game. Despite the turnovers, the offense played well during the middle part of the game. Defense continues to keep them in the game. A lot of work but hopefully with a win this coming week and the bye after that, some spark can be lit.
