    Steelers showing some interest in Jevan Snead

    Apparently, the Steelers have been interested in Snead since before Ben's issues began.

    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    He was good when he had Michael Oher to protect his "Blind Side" and had our boy Mike Wallace to throw to two seasons ago (people were saying potential first round prospect). But last year, I think the only weapon that Ole Miss had was Dexter McCluster, an undersized RB.


    Final Ruthless Mock:
    1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
    2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
    3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
    4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
    5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
    6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
    6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
    7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State

    It seems like the Steelers are looking for a late round developmental QB. They've looked at Snead and also Sheehan.

    With all the comp picks, it makes sense to take a chance on a guy late to see if he can develop into a reliable backup.

    I would be OK with either of them. I'm still not sold that Dixon could take the pounding of an entire NFL season if he had to step in long term. He is athletic but slight in build. Not too many of those QBs survive long in the NFL.
    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!

    As I recall Dan Marino didn't exactly have a stellar year his senior season ... thanks Foge but that doesn't always mean it's the QBs fault.

    if only he would have had a good stellar year than maybe he would have had many good stiller years.

    I think it was the drug rumors more than anything, which lead us to Senor Sack over Danny Boy.

    Yea, I was not around yet for the draft of 83, but from what I heard those dang drug rumors were one of the keys of us not taking him...but if we had him than winning would probably get old and it would not be fun because there would be nothing to complain about..no neil, kordell, where is the fun in that

    Stinking is a compliment. Look at his stats in the bowl game... I think he had 4 int's.
