    I find it hard to believe that the guy who is making almost every catch in this video with his hands has a propensity to allow the ball to get into his body. Sweed either high points every catch, snatches the ball out of the air with his hands or one hands the catch and there's one all hands catch with the defender is interfering by hanging on him.

    I don't know if he'll ever be anything in the NFL or not, but his hands won't be what holds him back, IMO. There are some sick catches in this video.

    Ed Mccaffrey is another one that comes out of nowhere from San Fran to be productive in Denver. Wonder if he hung out with Romanowski because his arms looked ridiculously oversize for his body type.

    Re: Can Limas Sweed help the Steelers?

    Several other good suggestions, fellas. The common thread, though, is that all of these guys...Smith, McCardell, Thigpen, Williams, and McCaffery...all had to go to another team to ultimately experience success.


    1 CB Vernon Hargreaves Florida 5-10 204
    2 DT Austin Johnson Penn State 6-4 314
    3 SS Jeremy Cash Duke 6-0 212
    4 LB Jaylon Smith Notre Dame 6-2 223
    6 WR Moritz Boehringer Germany 6-4 227
    7 OT Brandon Shell South Carolina 6-5 324
    7 RB Tre Madden USC 6-0 223

    UDFA
    DE David Onyemata, LB Ian Seau, FS Jordan Lomax, CB DeAndre Elliott,
    QB Jeff Driskel, TE David Morgan, OG Spencer Drango, OC Mike Matthews

    2015 MNF Executive Champion!

    Highlight films always show the good....


    From NFL Combine report

    Has had a history of concentration problems which prevents him from getting proper position to make the catch...Must do a better job of looking the ball in and securing it before trying to run with it (leads to dropped balls)...Has good leaping ability, but shows poor timing and arm extension trying to battle for jump balls (left 20 of 39 passes thrown to him behind in 2007)...

    With everything already said by some here, what are we supposed to do if he does turn in a good or decent year in 2011? He is in his last year of that rookie contract. Do we re-sign him to an extension, which you know we would not pay much more than vet minimum no matter the season he has, just because of the risk factor (dropping passes). He'll likely sign somewhere else that will give him good money anyway. I think either way he's gone. Cut this year or not re-signed next year.

    If he performs, you don't hesitate to resign him for a reasonable extension. Hines and ARE are going to be done and we would do well to move forward with a good Sweed plus Wallace, Sanders and Brown.

    Under normal circumstances, yes but this guy has thrown red fllags up all over Colbert and Tomlin's radar's. We have decent depth at WR for Hine's exit amd El is easily replaced.

    Being in the last year of his contract doesn't bode well for Sweed's long-term future with the Steelers, IMO.
