    Yes. Levi was the Cards' 5th overall pick in 2007 (they passed on guys like Adrian Peterson, Patrick Willis, and Darrelle Revis there...D'Oh!) and Haley was the O.C. in Arizona in 2007 and 2008. Brown played in 13 games (starting 11) as a rookie in Haley's offense, then started all 16 games in year two (which culminated in their loss to us in SBXLIII).

    ..and more than likely we will pass on the next Revis, Peterson or Willis if we draft LT.

    That's OK though, IMO - we can win the next SB without a Willis, Revis, etc., but we can't with B3n in a body Kast.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Good point.

    It would have been funny if the Steelers traded for Max Starks.

    Seriously though, this is a lateral move but they had to do something.

    All I am reading is that the Steelers are not giving up on Adams, but merely giving him an opportunity to sit and work on his game without the pressure of Sunday afternoons. As most describe, he is an outstanding athlete and just needs to master the mental aspects. Sometimes the light takes a little longer to turn on for a guy.

    It's a good plan. I haven't given up on him yet, either.

    Duane Brown was awful as a rookie - I remember him getting abused by James Harrison. Not saying that Adams is close, but OTs can take time to develop.

    There was a play where Peppers drove Adams back 10 yards with ease 2 weeks ago. That one play concerned me more about Adams than any of the times he was off balance, flat footed, or slow. He's also just not very strong. I wonder if he lost some strength when he got stabbed? But right now I just don't see anything in his game that can be salvaged long term. It's like he's the Ziggy Hood of our offense.

    The Steelers can't wait for "what they think Adams can be" at 0-4...They need to stop the bleeding now. Brown right NOW may be the best LT on the roster. Simply...His experience in this league makes him better than Adams or Beachum. That is what the Steelers need right now. Once he gets up to speed on the playbook I expect him to start. Brown won't heal all the woes on the OL but he can set the direction of focus based on play calling.

    This.

    Rather than gameplan on how to protect the LT, the Steelers can now gameplan to beat the defense.
