    look, heath had a bad game as well. i didn't think last week was particularly strong with him either - but even when he plays poorly, there has been a tremendous difference for the better with him in the lineup. it doesn't really matter however. there are soooo many issues with this team on both sides of the ball it's not even worth the effort to try to drill it down to one or two.

    really sad however that troy appears completely healthy and is playing great football - well the rest of the team has declined around him.

    Reread my post .. not a shot against the JJ pick in it ... my thoughts were geared more towards the upcoming draft. And, I would be disappointed if we took a TE in the first in the upcoming draft. Soooo ... wasn't complaining about the last draft, and I guess you don't get it.

    But what if Joeckel is there? Hard to say we don't need help at LT...

    I don't think Troy is playing that great, bad angles and missed tackles. Just like the run by McFadden when Vince W. Was taking on the lineman. Bozo spun around away from the only place where the RB could run and spun himself right out of a tackle.

    not for "quick" hitting WR Screens that always go to the right side

    Having a WR that is essentially open, even when covered, will make the OL play better in itself, as the QB won't have to wait for his WR's to get open for so long.

    With 2 first rounders & 2 second rounders, not to mention trading for another former 1st round OT - at what point do you need to give this investment time to succeed?

    Really? Our offense can't score. points are what lose games. I didn't see the game, but I did see that we caused a couple of turnovers. I'm pretty sure we looked pathetic across the board, but our offense needs to start scoring points. We are 28th in the league at scoring points averaging just over 17ppg. That is pathetic

    So you were just rambling about how bad Heath is and how he may never be the same while talking about the draft at the same time? makes sense. There were only two TE's in the last draft that I would have taken and in both rounds we took the right guy. You don't replace super stars with late round draft picks. We need to start looking at TE, but a year or two down the road. The players we need to draft to replace are Ike, Troy and McLendon.

    ...and we can continue to watch Ben get pummeled behind a below average offensive line. The greatest WR in the world is useless if the QB can't get them the ball. If we have a Top 10 pick and spend it on anything other than a Left Tackle then the entire Front Office needs to be out on the street.
    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!
