    Arians can stick it.

    We have more pressing needs than WR.

    Arians better focus on finding a better run game...or he won't be coaching any WRs after the season.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    Arians also pushed for Urbik.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    guess Arians lost all credibility when it comes to evaluating players then...

    he reason I loved Holmes ability in college was his surgical route running. He could cut up a secondary with the best of em.

    Why do you think Urbik is a bust? Guy was taken in 3rd Round, did you expect the Pro Bowl as a rookie? My prediction is that in two years Kemo is gone and Urbik is a solid starter.

    I'm sure you will bring up the fact that Foster as a UDFA was active and Urbik wasn't. That IMO was more because Foster could also play Tackle so he was really the back up tackle on games days since Essex was starting at Guard. Foster had more positional flexibility.
    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!

    this is from Jim Wexell during camp last year...


    Kraig Urbik

    Of any player the Steelers drafted in the 2009 draft, Kraig Urbik was expected to have the greatest chance of becoming a starter. Darnell Stapleton struggled in spots during 2008 season and was expected to be pushed by the rookie guard from Wisconsin. As predicted, Stapleton will likely lose the starting job, but it will be to Trai Essex and not Kraig Urbik. Urbik has been the most disappointing of all the rookies. He has lacked power against the defensive lineman and generally looks lost. Early on in camp, he became Tomlin's "whipping boy" after making repeated mistakes. In the first preseason game, he failed generate much push off the line against Arizona's third team. His play against Washington wasn't much better.

    Quotables:
    "Ramon Foster is a better player than Kraig urbik. Urbik, frankly, is too soft. And I'm stunned" - Jim Wexell

    "The second practice — when we started doing one-on-ones — that was a huge, rude awakening," said Urbik, one of three third-round picks the Steelers made in the NFL draft at the end of April. "You have to have perfect technique every time. I did bad on it, so it's really an eye-opener that you really have to hone your technique."

    Likelihood of making team: 70%
    The Steelers will give Urbik a chance to improve. It would be awfully rare for the front office to cut its second pick in the draft without giving him at least a year to develop.
