    we never game planned or adjusted to protect the LT

    We pass on pass on the next Revis, Peterson or Willis to draft LT?
    Which LT, Taylor or Tomlinson?

    Either way I'm down with that.

It's like he's the Ziggy Hood of our offense.
    Dude did 19 reps on the bench press at the combine. We just drafted a SAFETY who did 28. I know it is just weights but NINETEEN? Not impressive.

    I HOPE he has not LOST strength.

    This could be a sign that his laziness translates into the weight room. I don't like it...but I think he still has an opportunity to turn it around if he can get his head straight.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    you guys realize bench reps has alot to do with arm length, right?

    shark doesn't have to push it as high as adams, hence the difference. Not that I want to to defend adams as he has been pathetic. Still have hope for him at RT as stupid as that sounds right now.

    Bench Press is a really weird gauge for some of these big guys, because their arms are so long, and Bench pressing is much harder the taller you are, because different muscles apply at different points. (only about the first 6" of a bench press are on your chest muscles, then its triceps)


    For instance, the LT that the Ravens got (which is a really ****ing good LT) only put up 23 on the bench.



    As you stated with Shamarko, Troy put up 31 on the bench.



    With some of these guys its really, really wierd.



    That Said, I think Adams needs to be stronger. Gonna be a real test to his character, if he can take this benching, and spend the time he is benched in the weight room and the film room honing his craft.

    Yes I know this. Guys like Shipley and Legursky put up beastly numbers with the short arm advantage.

    Nevertheless typically tackles are SO MUCH STRONGER that a typical tackle can do more reps than a safety. Granted we have some freaky strong safetys but still THAT disparity aint good.

    But 19 is just not impressive regardless arm length. At the tackle position where pretty much EVERYONE has long arms 19 is still WAY on the extreme low side.

    BTW Cordy Glen in that same draft has longer arms freakishly long and did 31 reps.

    19 was among the fewest among ALL Olinemen in his class.

I do give credence to the Haley connection, with Haley (knowing his own job is on the line) having a strong sense of urgency at this point... I can't imagine him signing off on bringing in some dead weight (assuming worst-case scenario with Brown).
    Are you implying that Haley is making personnel decisions?

    Some heads need to role for this mess at LT position. 2nd most important position on the O-side after QB.

    BTW this has happened twice...Jonathan Scott and now Mike Adams.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE
