    because tate wont be nearly as good as holmes will be or is now. if holmes is found guilty then we will need to replace him, but not with golden tate. i wouldnt call this a great draft for wr's but there are better wr's in this years draft than tate.
    Not to suggest that El is equal in ability to Holmes- but he is sufficient. I do not think the team should change their draft strategy this season - just to account for Holmes being gone.

    You've got El and Battle, and hopefully Sweed can get his act together...

    Hines has this season, and maybe one more.

    Wallace could possibly develop into a true #1 receiver.

    Wallace, Sweed (fingers crossed) El- Battle and whatever mid/late round pick groomed for 3-5 spots in the years to come.

    I'm all for the High Character guy though- irrespective of the position.

    i think ARE is still a solid wr. and i definetly think wallace has the potential to be a great #1 wr. i dont like battle a whole lot and as much as i would love to see sweed improve to a good wr but i dont think it will happen.

    i agree though no way we should change their draft strategy either. no need to push the panic button yet. no pick would be worse at #18 than a wr.

    ARE at his best can't hold a candle to Holmes. The drop off betwen those two are night and day.

    If we need to hope for any luck it is that sweed gets his act together and performs up to his abilities. If we do that we will have the best WR group in the NFL. Sweed is the key.

    I really think we will see Hines hit a wall this season. You have to be very concerned when a WR has recurring hamstring problems.
    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!

    I do agree with you that El is never going to draw double coverage, like Holmes can. Therefore, Wallace will get more attention.

    I also agree - Hines is almost done. I do think 2011 (if they play) is his last.

    I also agree with you- the KEY to all of this - is Sweed. If he does develop- then the team is fine. If he does not- they have a pretty BIG hole.

    asking someone to depend on Sweed is like asking a drunk chick to depend on Ben to get her home safely.... or asking Holmes to watch your weed stash

    I'm sorry but that is funny to me.

    I have no faith in Sweed and any positives he brings to the table would be seen as a blessing. I will treat Sweed like I treated our 4th quarter leads last year...

    I had no faith and I didn't lose a year off my life from the frustration when the D failed us late in games.

    Roethlisberger was a model citizen at Miami. There are no guarantees.
    A model citizen? Did you go to school with him?
    Reportedly.

    Have you seen Tebow's girlfriend? Clearly he has had impure thoughts looking at that chick which makes him human and flawed. I don't see how he can look at her without asking for forgiveness...

    Tebow's character is at such a high level he is bound to fall short.
