    Revis vs Timmons

    I can't believe we missed out on Revis and drafted Timmons. Now, I think Timmons will be a good player but Revis is a great player.

    He'll be the next Champ Baily for probably the next 10 years where the offenses are obviously given the advantage.

    By the way, who "spilled the beans" and allowed people to know we were going to pick Revis if available? Which, inevitably gave the Jets the ability to trade up to the spot before us to draft him?

    IMO, the Steelers were going to draft Timmons regardless.

    I don't know about that. The JETS traded up awfully far to jump ahead of the Steelers on this one.
    I remember wanting Revis and David Little in that draft. I am glad we got Woodley, it would have been nice to get all 3 though

    I saw that recently, and sadly, he is probably right.

    Timmons is a good player, no doubt. But it does seem that the Timmons pick probably had a bit of the "enamored of" factor in it, similar to Al Davis being enamored of speed guys.

    Re: Revis vs Timmons

    Wow.....sure wish the Steelers had drafted Ed Reed way back when. And Adrian Peterson too. Oh, and Jake Long. And Andre Johnson.


    The problem IS NOT that the Steelers drafted Timmons in Round 1.

    The problem IS NOT that the Steelers leaked info on wanting Revis.

    The problem is, after missing on Revis, in every subsequent draft, they have not found a CB to do the job opposite Ike Taylor. It could be a by-product of 'Drafting Best Player Available', or poor evaluation of rookies, or poor evaluation of current roster players.

    Regardless, if the Steelers had picked up 1 CB (Aqib Talib anyone?) of note, then we wouldn't keep hearing the bitching & moaning about 'missing Revis & getting Timmons'.

    Don't be hating Timmons because he isn't Revis.

    IMHO it is a lot easier to find an ILB in the middle rounds than it is to find a shut down CB.

    Flawed thinking in the Steelers war room that day if they honestly would have taken Timmons over Revis if both were sitting there.
