    Troy is playing and looks good

    OK, those haven't amounted to much, but hey its a start.
    I'm with you all the way... but the Troy's health is really a non factor, seeing as how this team is a loss or two away from being on their way to a top 5 draft pick next year.

    I guess a bright spot is that Tomlin has coached teams that have had long losing streaks and finished with decent records. Previously, it had been a late season collapse (unleashing hell), but maybe this year the team gets the collapse out of the way early and finishes strong.

    This is what I'm hoping for. I get the impression Tomlin is a little more patient and knows what he's got with all these young players. He's not pressing to unleash hell. To me, that almost seems to acknowledge this is a work in progress. And they have made some small strides forward in the last 2 games. Who knows where we may end up come December. I didn't expect this bad to start, but hopefully it just keeps getting better.

    "all these young players" overstates the case a bit. Most teams have way more depth and young talent than us.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    .? not sure about this one


    That just about does it for me.
    I get most of these points but number 3 is just ridiculous!!!!!
    And the comment on point 2 is a flagrant violation of board policy. I am deeply offended!!!!!!!

    Well stated and rational assessment. Are you nuts?
    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!
