Thread: Outside looking in

    Outside looking in

    Just curious if any of you have a preseason favorite who has a slim shot at making the team but you would like see make the final cuts.

    My guy is Moye. The QBs seem to love the guy, tough, tall, fights for that YAC. WRs positions are tight but if there was ever a year to keep 6, this is the year.

    Thoughts?

    I got a football crush on Baxter. Hope he ends up being JJ's backup and Worilds backs up Woodley instead of Carter. I also like what I've seen from almost all of the ILBs. I was getting pretty excited when we had 3 sacks in a row at the end of the 4th quarter on Saturday. I think we're really deep at LB in general.

    Me too. I'm surprised we cut him so soon. I think that kid's gonna land somewhere and be pretty good.

    I want to see Moye on the team also but I'm real tempted to see them keep Dunn for returns. Our special teams need a real boost that I think Dunn could provide.
    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!

    The other guy I'm interested in is Arnfelt. Does Woods flexibility to play NT allow us to carry a guy like Arnfelt instead of Ta'Amu and/or Fangupo? I think he's another guy that deserves to make the team. He hasn't played against the first team, but I think he might have more talent that Hood or Heyward.

    He looks to be built like Keisel and seems natural at the position and ready to go like McClendon was very early on.

    I was intrigued by Williams' athleticism, but now that he's hurt, it seems like we found this UDFA that might be ready to go and contribute. I know this may sound crazy, but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets on the field in our system before Heyward.

    I'm with you on this one. Watching Moye in practice, he's not that polished and I see him as more of a PS project at this point with some good upside potential. Justin Brown is the much better WR, but he really hasn't done much to earn a spot. So this opens the door for Dunn who would actually have a reason to dress on game days anyway.

    I hear ya. It's a tough call for sure. I agree with Flippy, Moye isn't polished. If he were, especially at 6 foot 5 he would have been snatched up. But he seems to get open, has solid hands and is a tough runner.

    If Heyward hadn't performed so well on , I might have agreed with you...
