    Convinced The Steelers Err'ed in the Draft

    Tight ends are tearing it up in the league the first few weeks. Having two strong TEs creates tremendous matchup problems for the defense because they need to either use their premier LB or a safety to cover. Obviously, this opens up other offensive opportunities. But NE set the tone a year ago with their tandem TEs and teams that have adopted it are showing the advantage on offense. When is the last time we saw two TEs in the top 10 in receiving yards?

    I always kinda thought of Ward/Miller as the original dynamic duo of TEs.

    I would have liked to see how things look with Miller and Spaeth...

    We don't the hybrid's. We have slow, plodding, traditional TEs who can't exploit matchups.
    ...or fumble when they do...

    Nah, I just know that all offseason, plans were made with him being the #1 TE when Heath was out and #2 TE when Heath came back...

    They obviously made a mistake taking Jarvis Jones with our first round picks, since we all know that the ol' curmudgeon Dick LeBeau refuses to give rookies and meaningful playing ti...never mind.

    Spaeth can't catch a cold. If he was going to replace Heath Miller and they were hoping for 2012 Miller production out of him? Then this team is in even BIGGER trouble than we all realize.
    Spaeth can catch... can't block worth a damn

    Now don't you feel stupid? You should.

    Yeah that LeBeau, he's a genius, just ask him.
    yeah... not sure why we refuse to keep a great rookie on the field. Jarvis has impressed in limited action... he should have been starting on day one.

    I swear I read somewhere Speath graded out close to the top in blocking among TE last year.
