I think it is a good thing for Lima that he got injured this season because I doubt he would have made the team. With Ward, Battles, ARE, Brown and Wallace, Lima may have been the odd man out.
Maybe this recovery time will tune his head into catching the ball and seeing the competition that he has to deal with.

At this point, I'd say he feels helpless and almost thinking his NFL career is over. The kid cant catch a break................or a ball

Fezz, I think this is a really good point. If he would have struggled in camp this year, it would have been almost impossible for us to take up a roster spot for him.

I thought Limas could become Plex.

If Limas would have panned out Steelers would not have drafted a WR for next 3-4 years.


But now with Hines getting long in tooth Steelers will be looking to draft a WR early next year.

Limas could be the answer next year to a retiring Hines Ward. All of this is clearly dependent on his health.

Being out this season may actually help him. If Sweed isn't fit next year then I would suspect we go after a WR sometime in first three rounds of the draft.

Sweed's confidence seemed to be up and so was his production from what I remember hearing in OTA's before he got hurt. I was looking foward to seeing what he brought to the 2010 Steelers. It's just too bad that he got hurt the way he did. Who knows what 2011 holds for him.

Limas peed the bed as a toodler, and he still does.







Sorry, caught that on another site...of course, I wish Limas all the best. But realistically, with the ascension of they young talent on this team, he's going to have his work cut out for him to make the team next time around.

I think being injured may have bought Sweed an extra year, but he is going to have an uphill battle next year. The Steelers will have to make their plans as though he is going to be a non-factor. Counting on him would be too risky.

My guess is that we've seen everything we're gonna see out of Sweed as a Steeler. I can't see him working his way past the people we've picked up. My guess is that he's an early cut next year at training camp.

It's over.... Sweed is done. The new breed of Texas Longhorns are mentally fragile. I read a yahoo blog that sad Colt McCoy is on the bubble in Cleveland and may get cut. I'm curious to see how that Holmes kid does that everyone was hoping for on D in the first round.

Does that make him a Lima has bean?

Limas has one more contract year with the Steelers. He had a strong spring this year. The injury was a misfortune. He knows the offense. If he works hard he could come back strong and maybe contribute here. In any case, I'd like to seem him get redemption, if not with the Steelers then elsewhere. He's a good solid kid whose had some tough times.

I can't see any team wanting him. If he proves that he is worth any opportunity, my guess is that he gets a much lower paycheck and sticks here as a role player. If not, it's off to arena league for him.

The arena league would like their receivers to actually catch a ball. Lima acts like the ball is a hot potatoe. I guess beans and potatoes don't go together.

I do have a question, when these guys are injured such as Lima, are they allowed to be at the workouts, team functions, classes ?

Willie Colon has the same injury as Sweed (Achilles) and it seems like a see Colon all over the place, driving to Latrobe with Ben in the Mini Cooper, helping out with Hotel with the adjustment to RT, etc.
