    He looks like he's been tackling a little high and I hope it doesn't come back to bite him in the rear. But the kid's definitely got some spunk.

    I'm personally a fan of Cortez Allen but I can't say that I've been that impressed thus far. It's not good when a 2nd string QB is attacking you.

    Sweet.... I'm so glad the Steelers signed Blake. I'm sure he'll be more effective than Victorian and Hawthorne. Another moronic roster decision.

    I highly doubt Blake ever sees the field as a CB.

    Blake led the Jags in special teams tackles with 12 last season and is an outstanding gunner. I think we all agree that we can use help on special teams...

    So the Steelers added Blake and kept Brown just for ST? I guessing playing the CB position isn't important anymore. The Hawthorne situation is not even comprehensible.

    First, people complain about crap special teams...

    Then, when the Steelers address them, people complain...

    So we keep Brown, Kion Wilson and sign Blake just because of special teams? Are you kidding me? Special Teams is NOT that difficult.
