    Don't get me wrong.. I like Te'o.

    You have to put things into perspective though. He's playing against a very good Alabama team that has numerous NFL prospects. You would expect a Heisman candidate & top 5 / top 10 pick to make an impact. In fact, he's making a NEGATIVE impact right now. That is not what you want from a top 5 / top 10 pick.

    I'd still take him in a heart beat. I understand that a players value isn't based on his performance in just one game.
    What about after 4? What if he continues to get ragged dolled and man handled by that OL? It doesn't mean anything? Just a fluke?

    and I'm not saying that a scout shouldn't. Just saying this game means something about his stock. It's going to take a hit...and rightfully so. I bet he is there for the Steelers when we pick.

    You do realize that his "body of work" isn't against a team like Alabama which is as close to the NFL in college as you can get. If this is any indication of his play against NFL talent then you've got to be worried.

    I agree. It will definitely hurt his stock.

    Looks like another Rey Maleuga to me. Decent but against the talent he will see in the NFL nothing special.
    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!

    Didn't see the game, but before we stick the pitchforks in Te'o, how did his DL hold up against the Alabama OL? If they got dominated, Chadman would come to expect that the LB's would get blown up as a result.

    You all are crazy. He can't line up and play them all by himself. He does need his other 10 teammates to show up too. There's no I in Team.

    1st rd pick has to be a 'can't miss'. Teo does not look like a 'can't miss'... but rather a 'cant tackle'. Being in position to make a tackle and simply not making it is not a good sign for a supposed top pick. And its happened more than once in this game.

    No thank you to Teo.
