Defense is a concern and I believe we will address most of our needs in the draft or FA.
I don't think the first preseason will have any bearing on our regular season unless we lose 3 or 4 starters for the year.
I personally thought they didn't offer him a contract because he wanted to go home & play for his hometown team. I didn't fault him. If I ever made it to the NFL & had a chance to play for the Steelers...I would go there for an idiotic discount. If Lewis "didn't" go home & would of stayed....The FO can take a WTF were you thinking! For as hard it has been for the Steelers to find and/or develop good CBs...Colbert deserves a "Pie Smash, Nut Tap, Bitch Slap" on this one.

Obviously our last off season and the start of our season I hated the direction of this team. It has gotten better with the 6-2 at the end but we wee still outdone by the likes of good teams and bad teams. Where do you set the bar with knowing what we could possibly obtain ? If Tomlin has another season opener loss I will be ticked. That will be four in a row if I'm correct and that now is on the coach especially when your losing your home openers to scrub teams.
