    There was a rumor last year before Spence's injury that he had a chance to start last season on D.

    There is a difference between "fact" and "opinion"...

    Facts can't be disputed. Your opinion can.

    I kinda hope that Lebeau lives to 120 and coaches until he is 115. Mainly, because I think your head would explode and that might be slightly entertaining to watch.

    ..and how good is the offense compared to the D?

    I know you hate our D but it's pretty hard to crack the lineup when they are a top 5 bunch... and yes, I know we need more TO's.

    The offense though... sucks.

    Gilbert didn't do well.... he fell on half the team and NEVER finished a game. This is my issue with the "look at the offense when you put the young guys in"

    The offense is offensive... so getting in and contributing to a 21st ranked O shouldn't be applauded while bashing a D that is top 5 EVERY YEAR.

    If you factor in the injuries we had to our top players like Troy missing most of the season, Harrison, Woodley and later Ike missing time, plus average play from our D-line LeBeau did a remarkable job. The thing is he's no one year wonder, LeBeau is consistent with his defense for many years.

    I hope he lives forever. It will give me lots of material to post about.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    So you agree we should heavily draft for offense to improve our "sucky" offense? If so we agree completely.

    Eifert in Round 1.!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Eifert could end up being the wild card pick, if so I wouldn't mind.
