    Both your guys came to us later than you expected. You must still be absolutely giddy with this draft!!

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    After getting DeCastro in round 1, they could have drafted you, Flippy, and Chadman with their next three picks and I still would have been smiling.

    Hope DoS is ready to play LT and Chadman's working the buffet circuit with Casey.

    I know we keep hearing about Spence being Butlers guy but I'm not so sure there wasn't a little voice in his ear. Tomlin worked with a guy who was very similiar coming out of college and turned out to be a hell of an NFL talent. He reminds me alot of him when you watch him on film. He also was undersized and his play was centered around his unique instincts for his position. If Spence ends up being anything close to Derrick Brooks...We have a gem.

    Using your intellect and football sense in knowing where to position yourself on a play sometimes is all that is needed to equalize the size/strength advantage of the opponent. The very fact that Spence is being noticed this early speaks volumes on his potential.

    I agree. Getting noticed as a rookie on a defense known to send rookies to the "gulag" for their rookie seasons is something. We'll see how it plays out when the real hitting starts on just 2 weeks. That really sounds good...only two more weeks!!!!!!
    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 was thinking the gulag part sounded good. When I first read that, I started thinking gulag might be some nice side dish that's served with pierogis.
