    That's actually a positive for a fan. Commercials are the reason that I only watch Steeler games. Can't bring myself to sit through all the commercials for a team I'm not emotionally invested in.

    Since the HoF is all about marketing and the shield, I could see him being left out only because of the rape allegations.

    His play on the field shows that he is deserving of being in.

    I think that this sounds about right. I'd guess the competition is Brown2 / Moye / DHB. Brown2 has been running with the 1st team, so it's his to lose I guess.

    Must be because I'm from Canada and we don't generally use lbs. When I think of a pound sign, I think of the sign for currency in England:

    This always confused me, because it is not a pound sign.

    Or maybe the fact that talented rookies like JJ don't perform well in their rookie year shows that DL's philosophy of making players EARN time on the field is better than GIVING it to them based only...

    My understanding is that free speech protects you from persecution from the government.

    The player used his right of free speech to say what he wanted. He was not arrested for it.

    His employer...

    Seems like a great piece to set expectations from. For example: Of all players taken in the first three rounds, less than half became long-term starters.

    IMO this is much more realistic than praying for 2-3 draft picks to come in and be "studs". If we're lucky, we'll get 1 rook who makes a solid contribution this year.

    We just have to remember to temper our expectations of the rookies. Last year the board was talking about how it was the best draft ever and everyone was going to be a stud. Same with the year we got...

    Who cares whose fault it's been?

    Having those injuries has limited his play since. As was said here: his first injury didn't heal properly, so he didn't play great the next season. Why should he...

    Apparently, they don't (or at least sports teams in general don't). During lock outs, local economies as a whole don't suffer. It probably hurts the sports bars, but people take they money they would...

    It's ridiculous that tax payers get held hostage by pro sports franchises like this.

    Several studies have shown that pro sports franchises don't help the local economy. During lockouts, people who...

    Wouldn't it make hard knocks more interesting? Having practices where you visit another team seems cool and would make it different than previous installments.

    It's not like the Bills don't meet...

    Cool. We just moved to Pittsford from Toronto last August. Will be cool to try to get down to these practices in 2015.

    That's the Steeler way. Get a passable lineup going in to the draft. Get BPA without being tied to immediate need.

    It would be interesting to see how many of the defenders of this strategy have Bell on the Fantasy Teams.

    And we can't get rid of idiots...but I'm a Canadian and our laws are likely similar to those in your neck of the woods.

    Jaws' job is to get hits and promote discussion (to get more hits). I wouldn't ever get too concerned about who rates who where. Teams get to play games and then playoffs to see who's the champ.

    That's some great info.

    I am still hopeful because

    (1) A brand new coach might not have much - if any - input on draft decisions. Their FO might have put more faith in their scouting team...

    Anyone know how much $$ we have left under the rookie cap? Seems like we should be decent since we didn't pick super early.

    I think we're basically saying the same thing.
    What I think you're saying is: "The 2008 draft class lived up to reasonable expectations".

    I grew up in the suburbs of Toronto (Ontario Canada) and didn`t really watch too much NFL Football until I was in high school. The Steelers were on National TV a lot at that time and I loved the...
