    Hines ddidnt really have a Holmes or Hine in front of him to fight for playing time his 1st 2 years. Would have been interesting to see how much his role would have been expanded last year if he didn't get hurt.

    Of course, immediately after they drafted Hines in the 3rd round in 1998, the team used high first round draft picks on WR's in back-to-back years (Troy Edwards 13th overall in 1999 and Plaxico Burress 8th overall in 2000).

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Didn't Sweed also get some Lasik done during the one offseason...and then soon after tear his Achilles? If so, we still haven't seen how he does with that new set of eyes.



    And hey...if this guy can turn it around:




    then Sweed can too!

    Everything I read was that before the Achilles injury Sweed looked very good in OTAs. I agree that if Williams can blossom into a star then Sweed can too. It's up to him.

    He's been mediocre when healthy, chokes in the limelight and has had some sturdy injuries since then. He lets go find Bruce Davis too and see about giving him another chance. Maybe Ricardo Colclough is available too.
    Let the busts go. We were lucky enough to find some good young WRs recently, Sanders and Brown. Focus there.

    I hate to sound so negative but I have zero faith in Sweed. I just wish the other players who are on the field producing could get the same leash Sweed gets. Timmons is still on a few peoples bust list but Sweed gets eternal love.

    I know Sweed having a good season would help us but damn.... We have guys producing who get no love.
    1) Chidobe Awuzie - CB, Colorado.
    2) Tim Williams - LB, Bama.
    3) Josh Jones S, NCState.
    3 Comp) Isaiah Ford, WR - VTech.
    4) Kareem Hunt - RB, Toledo.
    5) Josh Dobbs - QB, Tenn.
    6) Greg Pike - G/OT, Georgia.
    7) Isaac Rochell - DL, ND.

    right now, he is a bust.

    anything he hopefully winds up giving us is a plus

    for some reason, Limas just seems to lack the technical skills required to properly catch a football...

    He's had to deal with a lot of adversity...some of it his own making....

    But, with no WR drafted, Limas will be given every opportunity to make the team and contribute...

    What he is able to do with the opportunity will be up to him...

    If he can contribute, he becomes a great complement to the WR corps, bringing some different skills and attributes from the others...

    If he can't, nobody will notice...the Steelers have made it to 2 SBs with no contribution from him...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.
