I would take him over Johnson as a FB/TE hybrid any day of the week. Johnson will never be an effective blocker in space or on the second level.

Schmitt also has much, much better hands as a receiver than "stonehands" Johnson ever could hope to have.

I'm not saying go after the dude, but I don't have any faith in the reasoning of the Seattle staff. They cut TJ and have to pay him $6.5 million. They could have kept him for less than $8m. Who are their WRS???

I would sign Schmitt over Johnson. We need a good blocking FB atleast for first 4 games when Steelers will be running 40 times a game and with Dixon ability to gain yards on ground.

I'm glad you aren't in our personnel dept., pick up a big dumb guy who likes too hit himself in the head and recently got a DUI and sign him to a position that our OC doesn't use. Makes alot of sense. :shock:

Sorry if my moral compass would have me take both sides of the story into account, as well as the previous allegations, and the numerous accounts of people saying that he hasn't treated other people well.

I am not a GM, nor do I claim to be, but I do watch every single Steeler game with my son since he was 5 years old, and watching Steeler football is a family affair, and having to explain why our QB is suspended and having to still root for the douchebag is troubling to say the least and hypocritcal at best. So yes, you are lucky that I am not the Rooney's because I would have cut him for his stupidity alone, and maybe we would be a mediocre team for the next 10 years, but I would still root for them and watch them every weekend. For now I will root for the Steelers, but will have a hard time cheering for Ben. Who knows, maybe that will all change if he wins another Super Bowl, or maybe I won't follow as closely and eventually drop Steeler Football as my favorite sport and I will become more productive during football season in other aspects of my life.

I'm sorry you found it hard to tell your son that Ben garnered bad publicity for the team and the Czar Goodell had to make an example out of him.

Do you have the same problem rooting for douchebag Harrison or does your moral compass only apply to allegations of a sexual nature?

I agree, but that's cool. I love football, I love my Steelers, if they don't like the way I feel about Ben that's cool too. It wouldn't be brought up over and over if it wasn't an issue, and if they didn't feel the need to defend him. In my opinion Goodell did screw up, but Ben gave him a reason to. Nuff said I'm done with the Ben topic.

For the record, Owen is a big dumb scrub please don't sign him.

Steeler fans are very different from Big Ben fans. BB fans will disappear once Ben retires. Steeler fans have been fans long before Ben was born or before he put on a jersey.

I've been a Steeler fan since I knew what football was and will be until the end. That said, Big Ben is a personal favorite and I'd have bought his jersey (no matter the team) had the team been stupid enough to unload him this past spring.

As for Schmitt, I really don't see a need for him here. He fits a style we just don't play anymore and I'm not sure that he's all that good anyway.

Does our OC use a fullback alot even in running situations? Would he be a wise pickup by the FO if that is the case? then add on that the guy hits himself in the head on purpose and injured himself, and just recently got a DUI? Just sayin, probably not a great guy to sign...even if you are in love with him because he played at WV.

The only truth is that you are a tool for believing something so stupid.

And you are incorrect, NJ. Sports news wasn't like it is today back in the 70's. So there wasn't all this negative attention on "sd's Steelers" so anything they did was ok.

In White Men Can't Jump it was said that a black man would rather look good and lose than look bad and win. That pretty much sums up sd's take on Ben. It doesn't matter if he is innocent or guilty. There was a lot of negative speculation so dump the guy regardless of how much of it is true.

If it's true, is that something that you are proud of? If you think doing drugs is OK, I guess that is your perogative, I can now understand why you don't have a problem with Ben's behavior. I guess it all about how you were brought up.

I don't have a fullback. There's no fullback in my offense, there's never going to be one.

Again can TE David Johnson catch?? Johnson is used purely as a blocking TE in Steelers O-scheme. I believe Owen will be a better option compared to Johnson atleast in first 4 games.

Again i don't love Owen Schmitt and i have never pimped him on this board. Also i believe Steelers will have different O-scheme with Dixon in. I don't think BA will allow Dixon to pass 35 times a game.

Seahawks' Owen Schmitt arrested on suspicion of drunken driving

By Danny O'Neil
Seattle Times staff reporter


Schmitt, 24, was pulled over by Black Diamond police around midnight for speeding. He was subsequently arrested for drunken driving after his blood-alcohol content was measured at .151 and .161, according to State Patrol records. The legal limit in Washington is .08.

Arraignment is scheduled for July 8.

A written statement from Schmitt was released this morning by the Seahawks.

"I sincerely apologize to the team, the NFL, the fans and my family and friends for my actions and my poor judgment," Schmitt said. "I fully understand the seriousness of this matter, and I am disappointed in myself. I am committed to earning back the trust of everyone affected."

Schmitt was drafted in 2008 out of West Virginia and played mainly special teams as a rookie. He is expected to be the starting fullback in 2009 after the departure of Leonard Weaver, who signed with Philadelphia as a free agent in March.

so, when are you gonna start looking for a new team?

I will never follow another team, I might quit following pro sports, and being that I coach football and baseball it would probably give me more time for golf and travel baseball on Sundays.

As far as all these girls trying to set Ben up, why doesn't it happen to other franchise QB's, and if it happened to Flacco or Brady, twice, would you be saying that they were absolutely innocent too?

its happened to other NFL players.

why does it have to be QB position for you to compare it too? its happened to hall of famer michael irvin twice (maybe more ) that i know of



and the answer is actually simple... the 1st girl was a loon who didn't even try to criminally charge him, and the 2nd came about from the 1st accusation

....have you read any of the transcripts in either case or are you just "too disgusted" to bother

I have been a life long fan for over 40 years, and I am originally from Pittsburgh, why wouldn't you want me rooting for the Steelers? Because I don't agree with Ben's actions?

A lot of Big Ben fans can't stand Steeler fans... most hate the city and the people who live or have lived there. :stirpot

I would take him over Johnson as a FB/TE hybrid any day of the week. Johnson will never be an effective blocker in space or on the second level.

Schmitt also has much, much better hands as a receiver than "stonehands" Johnson ever could hope to have.

stone hands? i dont recall ever seeing johnson drop a pass. of course i think i have only seen about 4 passes thrown to him, but i dont remember him dropping any. from the FB position i think johnson is a pretty good blocker. i admit its been a few years since i have seen schmitt play.

do we really need to throw passes to the FB anyways? i dont recall danny krieder catching too many passes.

I would sign Schmitt over Johnson. We need a good blocking FB atleast for first 4 games when Steelers will be running 40 times a game and with Dixon ability to gain yards on ground.

I'm glad you aren't in our personnel dept., pick up a big dumb guy who likes too hit himself in the head and recently got a DUI and sign him to a position that our OC doesn't use. Makes alot of sense. :shock:

I'm pretty sure this thread was started to suggest Schmidt could solve our FB woes...
I brought up Johnson because he is our FB and cleared the way for a game winning TD.

I have never seen Schmidt do anything to suggest he is anything special in the NFL. Now I will finally get a chance to see if we missed on a great FB. If he looks like Carey Davis then surely all the love for Schmidt as a Steeler is unwarranted.

I actually started this thread because his name came up in a thread as being rumored to be released. I started this thread when it was official.

As far as putting the weight on Johnson for clearing the way for the game winning TD, it was a great block. But there were 6 other blocks that also had something to do with the play. Putting that block in the context of the result of the play doesn't make him any better than his total body of work for the game. If that run was in the 4th and the Falcons took the next series 50 yards and scored the FG as time expired, the block would still be a good block but nobody would be ready to put him on the Pro Bowl roster.

I don't think anyone suggested that Schmitt or Johnson for that matter was anything special. Schmitt wasn't used that much in Seattle but he served well leading for J Jones. They were disappointed because his 3rd round grade didn't amount to anything in that offense and was a wasted roster spot for the number of plays he sees the field. Johnson gives you a FB & 3rd TE at a 7th round value. He isn't a Kredier but he was better than Davis & Summers at lead blocking and serves as an in-line blocker as the 3rd TE.

Personally, the way the roster settled, I would take Johnson over Schmitt. If the Steelers kept Summers for a lead blocker, I would rather have Schmitt. Schmitt is better than Summers and equal to Johnson at lead blocking. Johnson gives you more value on the current roster over Schmitt since they kept 4 true HB. Johnson even has room for improvement. I'm not sure Schmitt does.

If I came across as being defensive...I apologize. Not looking to argue about Schmitt. I also said with the current 53, I like Johnson over Schmitt. If the Steelers decided to try to sneak Dwyer on the PS and keep Summers as the FB (Johnson would also be on the roster) I would pick Schmitt over Summers. Schmitt has been more effective at lead blocking in his career than Summers.

Just some comments on the helmet incident. He busted himself open in an introduction. If he didn't bust himself open, that would never be something brought up. He has done that through his whole career back to college. Hitting yourself in the head with your own helmet isn't as odd as you think on any level. There are many rituals of self hurting that some players do. You would be surprised what happens in the locker room, tunnel, or sideline. I did and experienced things myself. I had two OL that we would head butt each other without our helmets when we were in the locker room. Slapping each other in the face. I also experienced 2 players that did the same as Schmitt. Funny thing is, the one in high school finished in the top 5 of our class and went to West Point. I tease him all the time when I see him. Tell him if he didn't do that stuff, they might have let him in an Ivy League school. But he was a grunt and always wanted to be one. Last I heard, he is working Border Patrol. He was always a deliberate man. That is a good quality to be an NFL player. I'm not saying that will make you smash your head with a helmet, but being on that edge of violence comes in handy in a violent sport like the NFL. That stuff doesn't concern me and it obviously doesn't concern coaches. As long as it isn't a distraction or cost the team penalties...I'll take those guys on my team at certain positions.
