    They will be tougher than they were. They are (re)building with good D and a running game. The good news is that instead of giving more Colt weapons, they just went and got a new QB.

    You guys are ragging about the QB, but please remember the Steelers have a way of making rookie/inexperienced QBs look all-world. Plus, this scenario is similar to what we have been talking about for the Steelers O (and what the Ravens have already done), establish the threat of a run game and start making throws. It is working for Flacco, it can work for Weeden & Co. maybe I am just a worrywart, but few games last year were a gimmee.

    Not really...

    It happens a handful of times to any team...

    This is why guys like Scott Mitchell, Matt Cassell and, most egregiously, Matt Flynn made tons of money...

    Best I can recall, I think I recall hearing some ridiculous stat, like LeBeau has never been beaten by a rookie QB.

    LeBeau was beaten by a rookie QB once (Troy Smith) but I think it was a game in which we had already clinched our playoff berth and could not improve our seeding, so Ben sat out that in favor of Charlie Batch (or something like that).


    1 Landon Collins SS Alabama
    2 Byron Jones CB UConn
    3 David Johnson RB N Iowa
    4 Lyndon Trail OLB Norfolk St
    5 Nick Marshall CB Auburn
    6 Blake Bell TE Oklahoma
    7 Travis Raciti DE San Jose St

    Trade down w/ JAX:

    2 Maxx Williams TE Minnesota
    2 Nate Orchard OLB Utah
    3 Laken Tomlinson OG Duke
    3 Jaquiski Tartt SS Samford
    4 Ronald Darby CB Florida St
    5 Kurtis Drummond FS Michigan St
    6 Cam Thomas CB W Kentucky
    7 Malcolm Brown RB Texas
