    Desperation? Not really. Anyone thinking this is a Super Bowl caliber team is deceiving themselves. So, with that in mind the Steelers need to have a solid draft and pick up some solid mid range free agents in the offseason to fill some gaps. To give up draft picks for a near lateral move is silly...IMO. Now if Brown is better than advertised...well ok. But, as it stands this moves is desperate and reeks of something the Browns or Bengals would have done several years ago.

    You have been posting well below the bar of preparation for years. But, do we discriminate? No.

    You might have a point.

    I have faith that our Online coaches will have him blocking like Adams in time for the next game

    5 pages and not one mention of Brown unleashing hell when he gets here or him being ready to go vs the Jets b/c The Standard is the Standard. This board is 0-4....

    that's what I'm thinking... good LT's struggled against Allen. Adams struggling vs Allen in England isn't the end of the world IMO.

    hopefully this trade will light a fire under Brown, and he will finally begin to live up to his potential. Maybe he will be one of those guys like Max Starks that finally develops in the later stages of his career...and lives up to the hype. If we can get a few good years out of him, it'll be a good signing.

    I say move him into the LT position and let Brown and Gilbert compete for the RT position.

    I have no doubt Brown will "unleash hell", Big Ben is going to get his head knocked off. Course, I doubt it could be any worse than it is now.
