Thread: Has FO made a move to replace Levi Brown?

    Has FO made a move to replace Levi Brown?

    Of all the things we've spoken about here, getting a decent left tackle/another at least minimally competent warm body to protect Ben is the most essential part of our making the post-season. We *need to plan on someone going down. Our backup will be ... ?? Whimper, Adams ... we're going nowhere.

    I've been out of touch for a day or so ... anyone hear anything?


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

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Guess they're happy with Beachum, Whimper, and Adams...

    ..and this is why I don't have faith we will draft a LT in the first round.

    I disagree.

    Bringing in an OT off the street midseason is not as reliable as drafting...

    I mean, if that OT was significantly better than what you had on your roster, why is he still on the street at this point?

    On the other hand, drafting a premium LT in the first round is a different proposition altogether...

    Sure, they crossed his name off the active roster.

    Hard for me to believe there isn't a free-agent LT out there who would be a better option right now than Beachum, Whimper or Adams. But if not, there's demand for Manny Sanders...maybe we could swap him for a serviceable tackle.

    IMO, doing nothing is almost an admission that you're throwing in the towel for this season...

    I don't TRUST that our FO will draft an OT in the first... seems like every year we are scratching our heads at Colbert saying they believe in the guys they have on the OL.

    I agree. I think we will just do "just good enough" to ensure we are out of reach of a LT that could actually solidify that part of the OL. Maddeningly frustrating.
