I was really high on McNutt. Big guy, looks great in space. I think we got that small scatback from FL instead. Oh well. Anyone else hoping for McNutt?

Mcnutt is the better WR hands down. But Rainey can be a game changer.

And he is going to change the way defenses have to play the Steelers now. Him in the slot is going to help Mike Wallace and the rest of the receivers.

McNutt is definitely a chain mover...but Rainey might be a game changer...

With experience at WR, RB and PR/KR, he could potentially perform well in several different roles...

No problem taking Rainey over McNutt. I really do like guys like McNutt (character, solid guys), but in this case, I think we needed the injection of speed over solid chain mover.

:Agree A. Brown did a pretty good job of moving the chains last year. With Rainey in the mix and another reciever (whoever replaces hines) I think our Offense could see its best year ever. Especially with the O-line upgrade

It's a tough call. I'm not unhappy with Rainey. It just that McNutt had some serious potential to erase the pain of Limas Sweed. :p

I believe McNutt had #2 starter potential. In the least, he would have upgraded our red zone %. I would have taken him.

Rainey is a special talent though. If they use him well, it could turn out to be a better decision.

I like Rainey over McNutt. I thought that a speed back would be a great asset for the Steelers. Rainey has the potential to add a new dimension to the offense. And when you factor in Rainey + Clemons, I absolutely prefer that to McNutt + whoever.
