Does anyone fear that if some of these young guys don't feel they get the ball enough they could opt to leave once their rookie contracts are up?
    I think they can keep them happy as long as they win. The one who can set the tone and be a real leader is Hines. The addition of Sweed, a pass catching Mendenhall and the emergence of TEs will likely effect his opportunities the most. This is the time where he can set the example and not dwell on personal achievement, but help these younger players be better for the team much like Bettis did.

    This is where leadership has to step up. The Steelers have always had the "Team before individual" thing going on. If a player didn't fit that mold we let them walk (Plex - maybe, still being debated.). If the team leaders build this concept in the new guys it will be fine. If not, then adios!

    Give me a team of "B-" players who are a team, over a bunch of "Me first" idiots with a few superstars any day.

    Can and will Hines be that type of player? He already owns all the Steeler records so being that kind of player in my mind cements his place as one of the greatest ever.

    Did anyone else have to do a double-take when the "Bradshaw Admits to Steroid Use" thread appeared and right next to it was this thread that said "I hope Ben uses them" in the title? My eyes must have completely glossed over the "TE article" portion of this thread title.

    2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
    3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford
