    We already have an OLB that did just that. Jason Worilds spent all of last year lifting weights with Harrison. Worilds is supposedly hitting this off-season with great gusto.

    I'm ok with the Jones pick at 17, but lets not discount Jason Worilds yet.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Worilds is the guy I'm most excited about. With his size/speed combo, I think he could be on the trajectory of a 15+ sack season if he can stay healthy.

    Wouldn't it be crazy if all the guys come into camp in shape and stay healthy. Everyone's asleep on the Steelers, but I think this year could be it if just a couple guys work a little harder.

    We can talk all we want about the "D", but it will really come down to Big Ben's health and the offense IMHO.

    Special teams weren't very special IMO either.

    2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland (Deion Jones)

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

    A different set of guns than the man he is replacing in the lineup:





    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    This.

    If the Steelers average <= 22 ppg, then no playoffs again this season (and that is assuming the defense stays in top form).

    I'll love him when he shows me what he can do on the field.

    He played a little bit of a rover position in college at times, and I'd love to see some passing sets with Jones, Woodley and Worilds on the field at the same time.

    That would require flexibilty in the defense. Der Fuhrer can't allow deviation from the scheme regadless of talent.
