    Jarvis is Special

    According to Tomlin, when Colbert said there's 6-8 guys that are special in this draft, Jarvis was one of the 6-8 guys Colbert was referring to.

    This pick almost seems rigged. Steelers thought they didn't have any chance at Jarvis and didn't even talk to him until he ran a 4.9 at his pro day. They said they knew then that he could fall to them. It's like he ran a 4.9 intentionally.

    And then I heard he's been working out with Ike for months. And Ike's been mentoring him. Maybe that's why we knew we didn't need Harrison and why we kept Ike cause he's been working with our 1st round draft pick for months.

    This whole back story seems bizarre.

    Ike has an insane off-season workout regimen, so if this is true then that should put any work ethic questions that were floating around pre-draft to rest.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    That's the weirdest thing. All these rumors are going around leading up to the draft that he's got a poor work ethic and the whole time he's working out with Ike. This is like the Steelers hiding the college game film of John Stallworth from all the other teams. The Steelers were probably putting the work ethic rumors out there the whole time knowing full well they weren't true.

    I'd love to read a tell all book from Colbert one day. Or any GM to learn about all these shenanigans.

    I'm hoping these shenanigans (and poor 40 times) allow us to draft Keenan Allen in round 2 as well. Word got out that he was "red-flagged" for drug test at the NFL Combine. Actually, they found suspiciously high levels of water in his system. I guess the league is worried about him trying to mask something else in his system by drinking a lot of water. Maybe he just subscribes to the Bobby Boucher school of hydration.

    I'm still on Cloud 9 because of Jarvis Jones is a Steeler. Glad he's being mentored by Taylor. Now Woodley needs to step it up and help Jones out.

    Yup... there is an interview of Jones posted on Steelers.com. He mentioned that he's been working out with Ike in that interview. Interesting indeed....

    Suggs was a 4.9 guy. Hasn't seemed to hurt him.

    If any defender needs to run 40 yards in a straight line on the football field, something has gone horribly wrong.
