    Numbers in a vacuum mean absolutely nothing. How do those numbers compare to historical data?

    That's even worse. Most teams tend to run right-handed and to the strong side. I cannot recall the stat I heard the other week but most runs are to the right.

    I agree. This is one of the more baffling threads I've ever seen.

    He effectively ran around an OT - once - on a blitz. There is no reason not to let him try that a few times per game, but he's...

    The Steelers have problems defending the run now. Imagine how much worse it will be if you put Shazier (who, in person, looks a lot more like a safety than a LBer) at OLB. He'll never get the...

    This begs the question, who on earth is Adam Gettis!? I usually follow the transactions pretty closely, but I've got to admit that I've never heard of this guy.

    You scream for young guys to play and then complain when they don't step in as instant all pros. Make up your mind.

    Meanwhile, while bashing the play of Jones, you continue to drink the...

    Shazier on the strong side? The same guy that others think should be moved to safety?

    Moats may be essentially a backup, but he has four sacks to 4.5 for Worilds (or 5.5 if you include his hit on Ryan). Worilds is on his way to putting up Clark Haggans type numbers, without being as...

    I think that Shazier can, and will, be an effective blitzer coming off the edge from time to time. I also think that he'd be a horrible full time OLB. You can't just use a speed rush on every play,...

    More sacks but fewer hits and hurries than the guys around him. That would be my guess, but I also have no idea how PFT comes up with its rankings.

    Not at all, but instead of blindly fellating him, perhaps we can point out that he's had significant blunders and areas of underachievement during his tenure.

    That falls under giving him credit for his success. Just like the Steelers this year, Tomlin's tenure has been remarkably inconsistent, with big peaks (the 2 SB appearances) and big valleys...

    The only position on offense worthy of a premium pick is a new TE to groom behind Heath. Unless a franchise LT falls to you, but you aren't going to find that drafting where the Steelers will pick. ...

    If you are going to give him credit for the success, shouldn't he also take blame for the failures? Should he own the 5 game losing streak in which he unleased hell in 2009? Shouldn't he own his...

    Given the salaries that both are likely to command, that's an easy call. Moats now has 4 sacks to 4.5 for Worilds.

    Wrong.

    Lamarr Woodley: 11.5 sacks in year 2.
    Joey Porter: 10.5 sacks in year 2.
    Jarvis Jones was on pace for 10+ sacks this year prior to his wrist injury.

    Jason Worilds was a reach in round...

    As I saw somebody point out elsewhere, Peyton doesn't just choke in the real playoffs. He also chokes in the fantasy playoffs, which typically start in week 14.

    It's not a self fulfilling outcome. It's a team drafting to find players to fit what it does, which is what all teams do.

    And go look at all the DEs who were in the pro-bowl last year. And...

    You conveniently left out Shazier, a week 1 starter. And while Tuitt played well yesterday, he has been a big part of many of the big runs given up by the D.

    The team also has nobody that would be an effective pass rusher as a 4-3 DE. Heyward and Tuitt would both be DTs, and there is nobody with the speed to come off the edge.
