    Really? People have made fun of Manning for years for the way he ducks contact.

    That was really bad. It's going to be awfully hard for him to ask his teammates to make sacrifices after that.

    Steelers Related SB Thoughts

    A few Steelers related thoughts from the SB:

    - After watching Von Miller eat Cam Newtown alive, I realized how good the Steelers offensive line was against Denver, and in general this season. I'd...

    I wouldn't use a first round pick on somebody who is just a rotational player. I'm talking more about a versatile defensive lineman who can play a bit at NT / DT and a bit as a DE, with the eventual...

    Reed was gone at 12 in the one that I did, and the guys that made the most sense were either Spence or Apple. I went with the potential stud pass rusher over the corner.

    This is pretty fun. I did four rounds and came up with:

    - Noah Spence, OLB
    - Kenny Clark, DT
    - Kievare Russel, CB
    - Kevin Byard, SS

    I probably need to work an offensive player in there next...

    Defensive Line vs. DB in the first

    I just saw McShay's latest mock, which has Eli Apple going to the Steelers in the first. Although the Steelers obviously have a glaring need at CB, the strength of this draft seems to be on the...

    That's a good point. Looking at 2017, the Steelers are already at $92 million dollars of cap money for just 20 players. And that is with no Timmons, no DD, no Bell or DeAngelo, no left tackle, no...

    Wow, 7 out of 12 WRs were not only successful, but really good players. And that is not including Coates. If he pans out, that is 8 of 12 that are absolute hits - can't ask for much better than...

    I don't have time to crunch the numbers but would be interested to see how the Steelers stack up. A link to their draft history is below. I'd bet that they are a bit below average on DL and above...

    I'd love that combo, but from what I'm reading after the Senior Bowl, most seem to think that Spence will be a first round pick. As Marcus Peters showed last year, if the talent is there, teams will...

    I think you have to find a way to pay Bell. DeAngelo was great running the ball but doesn't give you what Bell offers as a receiver. Like AB and MB, Bell is a threat to score every time he touches...

    Reading between the lines on ARII's comments, I agree with you that Cortez Allen is likely gone. He seemed to be one of the "mistakes" in the secondary. Even without getting rid of Cortez, there...

    SKL, good to see you back.

    On Holmes, the Steelers actually moved up few spots to grab him. I generally like your mock, but I wonder if you can still get Fuller if you move down. Especially...

    I'm not expecting a huge influx of free agents, but I could see the Steelers adding 1 free agent starter on defense, and maybe a depth player as well.

    In the first round in particular, you take the best player. If Henry can be a Heath like player for the next 10 years, you take him and don't look back. But if he's going to be a decade of Mark...

    I wouldn't complain about Henry at all. If they go that route, I do think that they need to add one free agent on defense, whether depth on the defensive line, a safety, or a corner who represents...

    I'm seeing reports from the Senior Bowl that the Steelers are looking at defensive lineman. I think they go that way.

    It was true but why throw your offensive line under the bus? Ben used to get beat up routinely and never through the line under the bus. Instead, he praised them when we all knew they stunk.

    Winning percentage will fluctuate greatly from year to year, but one thing that sticks out on that schedule is the lack of elite QBs. If Luck returns to form, he and Brady are the two that you worry...

    I always remembered him throwing his offensive line under the bus after that playoff loss to the Steelers. He seems to have come a long way since then.

    Agree completely. If I was Boykin, Pittsburgh would be my last choice. Well, maybe second to last after San Fran - the only thing less likely than Boykin returning is him reuniting with Chip.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a Revis level corner on the team. I just don't think the Steelers will find one at 25, or that they need one for the defense to succeed. If they had a Keenan...
