    Keeps the door open for that Guard Cooper they have been talking about a lot lately. I thought that was closed when they signed Foster.

    Why are we trying to compare players that have played and completed their entire careers with guys like Mike Adams who is one year removed from college?

    People will say whatever they like, construe the argument in a fashion to suit their argument, and label it the truth.

    Is Pouncey a better OC than Dawson? Is Cortez Allen better than Rod Woodson? Is DeCastro better than Faneca? Some of the comparisons given are seasoned vets vs 1st year NFL players.

    Could Tomlin draft better? Sure. But that same argument must be levelled at Cowher too. Cowher also had several years with Tom Donahue assisting in the personnel decisions before Colbert came on. How much influence did Donahue have over some of Cowhers great players?

But how much I question. Also the cap does come into effect with all these players from differnt years some how.
    Valid and has always been a bit of unkown. It's always been said that Cowher had or wanted quite a bit of 'say' in the draft. Tomlin is an influential personality and I think he's always had more say than what most people think even in his first draft. What I don't get is that most blame Cowher for his picks and don't praise him for his ability to build teams and Tomlin gets the credit for the good picks and it's Colbert's fault for the bad picks. Slim to none objective analysis.

    I completely agree. I don't think you saw my previous post. I never got that either. Haggans was decent but I thought it was Harrison time at that point. I would have liked to see Harrison / Porter for a year or two.

We have some truly ridiculous people on this message board. I'm just glad for the most part they are few and far between.
    I was coming to the "why waste my time" conclusion... I know better... it's actually why i dissappear for long spells at a time off the msg boards -- it's often when ignorance dominates the posts...

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion whether you agree with it or not.

    If you just want the "love affair" posts, simply ignore everyone that might criticize a person you have that love affair with. Use the ignore feature on the message board. That is why it's there for.

    You have no point, you hailed Cowher as this drafting guru.

    When truth of the matter is for most of his drafting career Cowher struggled. And it was Dan Rooney who saved his legacy in 2004.

    That's an interesting perspective.
