    Absolutely Pappy, I completely agree. And I really didn't mean to dump on Lewis.

    The point about him dropping the pick was in response to Crash's comment about what more could be expected from Lewis.

    Well, it's easy to determine which draft was the best, 1974 and now we know exactly which draft was the worst, 2008.

    Pappy


    1.15) Ryan Shazier - ILB/OLB
    2.46) Stephon Tuitt - DE
    3.97) Dri Archer - RB
    4.118 ) Martavis Bryant - WR
    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB
    6.173) Wesley Johnson - OT
    6.192) Jordan Zumwalt - ILB
    7.215) Daniel McCullers - DT
    7.230) Rob Blanchflower - TE

    Just more proof that you can't really evaluate a draft until a few years later. I remember, following that 2008 draft, how many of us thought the Steelers had done a tremendous job...

    Oh yeah, so many of us thought that Mendy and Sweed were absolute steals and that the team had aced the draft with future pro-bowlers. I remember the craziness when it looked like Rashard might actually fall to the Steelers- it was absolutely nuts. Some even wanted to trade FWP right away to get "value" for him while he was still fast because RM was (in some people's opinions) already the better back even though he hadn't played a down of NFL football.

    Maybe it's because Lake actually does some COACHING, where all LeBeau does now is COASTING.

    Dom Capers when he ran our defense had no problems playing young players early.

    LeBeau? Hardly ever.

    It's not the scheme, it's the mindset of the coaches running it.
    and look how well Capers is doing ... Packer fans want to run him out of town on a rail. His defense is horrible ... do you know how many times it allows the opponent to go score right after the Packers get a TD? Lots.

    I was extremely happy with last year's draft, and now, well, we don't KNOW yet but it already is much worse than all of us thought after the 2012 draft. DD and Adams could still be good, but Spense and Rainey look unlikely to offer us anything and T'amu isn't likely to turn out either. I thought all picks 1-5 were great, and now we are left hoping that we get just 2 decent players out of those 5, if we are lucky.

    Pathetic and FAIL. It is embarrassing how Tricky Dick never gets young players on the field. FAIL.

    They are idiots. Their defense makes plays. I'll gladly give up some yardage rankings for some turnovers. Charles Woodson was supposed to be finished when Green Bay got him. Capers and the way he used him saved his career.

    Fail???????


    LeBeau orchestrated a defense that has ranked in the top five of the league in 10 of his 11 seasons as defensive coordinator.

    Now give that man a Miller ^^^^
