    Re: Steelers have reached agreement with former Bills tackle

    Hasn't Jon Scott played OG as well?

    Is he a chance to play RG seeing as how he knows what Kugler will demand of him?

    Smart buys today from the Steelers, depth is now covered, possibly 2 starters (Scott at RG & Will Allen at FS) & the freedom on Draft Day to go out & get an impact player or two.

    Put me in with those that think this doesn't change our draft strategy at all. These are moves for depth. Talk of Earl Thomas reminds me of the versatility that Carnell Lake had, although he played LB at UCLA, didn't he?

    Re: Steelers have reached agreement with former Bills tackle

    I view these recent signings from the perspective of the team adding more "Mewelde Moore type" journeyman depth. And i like others do not believe that it impacts our prior/current Draft needs in any significant fashion.

    Does it mean Iupati, Haden, Wilson or even a surprise pick like MCcourtey are out of consideration ?,.. no. Does it mean Mays, Thomas or Odrick are out ?,,.. no.

    But i will say that for those of you whom believe the pick will be and or would like for it to be a LB such as MCclain or Weatherspoon,.....you may very well be dissapointed. Why,...we already have a guy on the roster that is a better LB than Timmons in Fox,....and yet Tomlin refuses to allow him to start. ( Even to the reported chagrin of the Defensive coaching staff)

    What makes anyone believe that he'd (Tomlin) go along with Drafting a backer that he could not justify keeping off of the field as a starter in place of Timmons ? There could be no more excuses (For him or Timmons) to do so if one of those guys where to come in and outperform Timmons in every sense,.. every time they stepped on the field at practice/camps right before everyone's very eyes.

    As i said before,.. i'm no longer giving Tomlin the "business" for his views on personnel, (Can't do anything about it)... but,..i will keep it real.

    What makes you say that Fox is better than Timmons? I find it hard to believe that Tomlin wouldn't start the better player, no matter who he drafted. He signed Fox as a FA as well, so what is the difference? By that definition, they are both his "boys".

    With the signings of Allen, Battle and Scott I think we will have Comp Picks taken away from us. We will not get 3 now.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Aside from actually being an ILB NW,.. he's (Fox) more disciplined, more intelligent, stronger than and more physical than Timmons.

    czar has an issue with Timmons and no matter what Timmons does it will never be good enough.

    I'm starting to think he's Timmons' daddy and living vicariously through him...so unless Timmons is perfect it's just not good enough.

    I think you mean to say that Tomlin looks at him as a father attempting to live through him.
    It's not personal for me at all,.....i simply abhor the foolishness of wasting 1st rnd draft selections of an organization that i would like to see remain strong because of one man's (Tomlin) desire to do as much. (Live vicariously through a player and or put their success before that of the Franchise because of some great PERSONAL affinity)

    what's up O?

    these signings will not factor into this year's compensatory picks, but will rather be factored into next year's calculations. with these signings it looks like we won't be getting any comp picks next year.

    but this year, we should be getting two 5ths and a 7th or a 5th, 6th and a 7th...

    No. I meant what I posted.

    And if you think Tomlin is the guy who drafted him then you're even more of a fool than you appear to be.
