I only envy the Seattle Seahawks for one thing they have better than us:
1.) The Raiderettes (especially when they were in LA)
2.) Both Texas teams. (Why are so many Texan women so hot? Unreal.)
3.) Miami gals. Holy mother of God they are sizzling.
Every year there's a Johnny come lately to the party that looks like they have it right and maybe the Seahawks do have it right and maybe they don't. I certainly don't envy them in the least because they may have a better season than the Steelers. The Steelers are the most rock solid franchise in the league, 40 years ago, 20 years ago, 10 years ago, 10 hours ago or even 10 minutes ago. If they have a down year and I doubt that they do, I'm not going to envy a team that is having a successful season after 3 games, 10 games or 16 games and the Steelers may be struggling. What I'll be doing is hoping the Steelers can right the ship and if they don't, I'll hope they have a successful draft and off season. Being envious of a team because they're being successful (for a change) and the Steelers aren't isn't something I even think about. The Seahawks are just another team; I'm a Steeler fan and don't really care what the Seahawks are doing or not doing.

Any how, I would love if we had the backfield Seattle does.
The Seahawks were laughingstocks at the draft this year when they reeeeeeeeached for Bruce Irvin the middle of round 1 (I applauded it, because it helped DeCastro fall to us). Sure, Irvin had 2 sacks last night, but Brandon Mebane also had 2 sacks against that putrid Green Bay OL, and Chris Clemons had 4 sacks. The previous year, they reeeeeeeeeached for James Carpenter in round 1 as well. Gimme Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin, and our "cheapskate" owner over John Schneider, Pete Carroll, and their billionaire Microsoft owner any day.
My post-combine mock draft:
1. NT Louis Nix, Notre Dame
2. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
3c. S Deone Bucannon, Washington State
4. OT James Hurst, North Carolina
5. WR Jeff Janis, Saginaw Valley State
5c. CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
6. DE Deandre Coleman, California
7. ILB Max Bullough, Michigan State
