    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".
    What I'm saying: "Lets try to set 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...

    Before we get too excited about this draft class, lets remember how absolutely everyone thought both Mendenhall and Sweed were the steals of the draft and Dennis Dixon was a potential first rounder /...

    It's pretty much all based on the salary they get as UFAs. Guys you lose - Guys you bring in before a certain point. Salary differential.

    There used to be a guy on-line who would predict them very...

    So they're the new Bengals? It seems like there was a time when Cincy would pretty much always go off the board in the first. As you noted, I think there was a correlation between this tendency and...

    My guess is that Worilds gets the nod in the base to start the year and they have Jones focus on something like the Nickle package. Learn one position really well and be the first option there. First...

    Or like we used Woodley as a rookie.

    I wouldn't make that trade. We have two highly drafted Ts on the team now. We need to let them play...even if there are growing pains.

    You have to think someone will offer him something after the draft.

    I will always love KB for that game in Cleveland...regardless of what happened later (similar to my love of Porter for the playoff game in Indy).

    I would generally agree with this. EXCEPT for Ben. We have a great QB and it would be a shame to "waste" one of his productive years by taking the hit now. What if Ben actually had a season in which...
