    makes me think the year Matt Jones came out how there were so many people who sounded like they'd give their first-born for the guy...

If the Steelers run all short and intermediate routes, defenses will squat on those routes and also snuff out the running game.

    You need to have somebody on the outside who can challenge the defense deep to help open up the short and intermediate stuff.
    Or, vice versa, use the tight ends to mask the deficiency on the outside by using them like New England. Once you begin to get cut into 1000 pieces with the tight ends it gives the guys outside a little more operating room.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    ...which is where the comparison ends.

    That's my thinking Pap... Everyone keeps talking about taking the top off the D but I think forcing the safeties to come up and tackle the TE's would have the same effect and also force the LB's to cover.

    Add to that- Sanders and Brown are no Mike Wallace, but they aren't exactly slow. If they get a step on a guy, they are capable of taking it to the house.

    Perhaps the Spaeth add-on was just some smoke and mirrors. Letting others to believe that the Steelers aren't shopping for a TE in the draft... I'm on board with picking Eifert at #17. I wouldn't be upset if they drafted Tavon Austin either.

    I have this feeling that Harrison is gonna come back to the B&G later on, thus making OLB not such a priority this year......

    According to PFT the Steelers are moving on without James.
