    I still don't get why he wasn't regarded enough for a Combine invite. Talented kid--talented enough to be recruited by UCLA, good size, good speed, good experience. There something that we aren't...

    I guess you can say it is our definition of head and shoulders. To me, head and shoulders is a prime Patrick Willis or Urlacher, to guys like Poz. When I look at current players, none are "head and...

    Stick Poz on our D, and it'll still rank Top 10 all day. Stick Timmons on JAX D, and he will not move that needle much, if at all. Look, I'm not saying that I don't like Timmons... or that I'm a Poz...

    What are you talking about? You need to go and look at Pozluszny's production, his contract status, and his accolades (I think he made the Pro Bowl last year). He's not "clearly below" Timmons in any...

    That's it right there. He probably would've made the Pats* or Jets, if he was more position flexible.

    I don't get it. He would prefer to not be in the NFL as a QB, then to be in the NFL as another...

    And I would say Timmons and Poz are comparable players. And to be perfectly honest, if we had drafted Poz back then, you would see Poz jerseys all over Heinz Field. And I recognize he's from Penn St...

    Plus, he is just not that good. He is a solid, starting NFL LB. But (and someone evoked the name), he's not Patrick Willis. He doesn't make plays. He does his job "pretty well" most of the time. But...

    You know what sucks... Ike should've probably made one Pro Bowl in his time in the league. He won't anymore.

    It's context, dude.

    Take Johnny Foosball. No one is going to dispute that a rich, young man can't go out and have a good time. That being said, I'm sure you are saying he (as the "face of the...

    I like the Steelers over, for sure. I think the biggest upgrade will be on our Offensive Line, with Munchak, and Pouncey coming back. If we can sustain a strong running game for Ben, our offense will...

    I'm ashamed to admit, but I had to go back and look at his career stats. I had forgotten just how good he was for us: 1,400+ and 1,600+ yards, his first two years with us. Put that with the 1,400...

    Troy's impact (loss) coincided with others too. I think that doesn't get played up enough. e.g. One year, Troy was hurt a while, but it coincided with Aaron Smith being out at the same time. (BTW,...

    I appreciate that D Rock. Thanks! Maybe I'll just do a fantasy football league just for fun too (if I can't figure out a way to connect it to the curriculum).

    I've not been a blind optimist in these last few years, but I think we are under the radar, as a "good team". Most people consider us also-rans.

    I think it is realistic to think we are a playoff...

    No offense to you, but I hate when people say that. Of course we are "judging" someone... that is what we do, whether we will admit it or not. It is like when people say they are "colorblind". You...

    Agreed... I can't think of a good reason not go to the funeral, other than out of spite.

    People like to cite the use of no-huddle as the reason. I prefer to look at the offensive line solidifying (i.e. benching that bum Adams, also adjusting to no Pouncey).

    I'm glad. He is not a "franchise" type defender. You want to pay guys like Porter or Lloyd that kind of dough. Even Woodley (at the time), I was OK with. (Little did I realize, he was that type of...

    I'm with you. I'm secretly hoping he explodes with 9-10 sacks. I realistically think it'll be somewhere around 6-8. (I think he is that kind of guy basically.)

    I actually agree with Pouncey and I think he is probably still the type of player he's being paid to be but: Why does he always have to respond in this way? Why does he always dignify the answer, by...

    Meaningless?

    I would agree that there isn't a direct correlation between 40 time and playing ability, but to say that it is meaningless, isn't being objective. I'm struggling to think of an OLB with 4.9 speed,...

    I agree. When (hopefully) our offense is clicking this year, armchair experts are going to be saying: "I've been saying this for YEARS. The coaches are idiots."

    He's not an "elite" pass rusher. I think that is pretty obvious. He runs 4.9. He can't beat NFL tackles by simply lining up and whipping them--too slow, too small. But as Dukes said, he does have...
