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.
1) First ballot HOF, ROTY
2) All Pro first year, first round talent that fell to us in second
3) Starter for years to come, cant believe he fell
4) Absolute steal of draft, 2nd round grade
5) Back up at first then starter for 10 years
6) Incredible depth and ST demon
7) Amazing value, shoulda went 3 rounds earlier
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.
