    Brian Hoyer signs...

    So, what do you guys think of this one? I think it's a good choice.
    He has experience playing backup to an elite QB and team...

    I have no idea. Maybe he's friends with Plax and they came as a package both being from MSU? Did they work out together or something?

    Anyone know why the Pats cut him?

    The last Pats backup, Cassell, is awful. Belichick has a history of bad QBs other than Brady. He hit the jackpot with Brady, but even going back to Cleveland, he's never had a knack for developing QBs. So this signing is a bit of a head scratcher.

    Yeah the Pats cut Hoyer not because he wasn't progressing but because they invested a draft pick in Mallet. There was some upset within the Pats camp because Hoyer at the point he was cut was the better QB...certainly managed games better. Hoyer put up some really nice numbers in his two preseasons, is a good game manager and can make the throws.

    I think Hoyer is a good pick up. The type of offense the Pats run is not that different than what haley is running based on quick reads and short to medium range routes. Let's face it, it's not like there are alot of great QBs waiting for a job.

    I was more surprised we signed Burress over Derrick Williams given that Williams was with us all through camp. Personally I think Burress will be on zero value. he wasn't good last year when he played and I don't expect he will do anything for us. They should have just brought up the other kid from the practice squad like they did Gilreath.
    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 would like to see what Burress can do with Ben... I can't judge Burress based on his production with Dirty Sanchez... that guy sucks.

    IMO Burress offers nothing. They guy sucked for the Jets last year and he will suck for us.

    This is probably why we signed him. Good point Ovi 1.

    Yup...in that sucky Jets season coming in rusty after 2 years out of the league with a prison stay and Sanchez throwing him the ball, he still had the same number of TD catches that Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders have for their entire NFL careers combined (and that would be 5 total NFL seasons...2.5 years of each in the league)...if anything, Plaxico should certainly help us in the red zone (but between the 20's, I prefer Cotchery to Plax at this stage of their careers...once Jerricho's rib heal, of course).
