    I heard that. The kid still needs to learn. He has great upside, but against Brady they will need someone who does his job and maintains his assignments.

    Maybe they ought to bench his counterpart on the other side for a game. At least Jones had a tackle. Mr. $61 million had all of 0 tackles and 0 assists vs. the Raiders...not to mention his part in Pryor's history-making 93-yard TD run.

    It's a wash. It's not as if Woirlds is head and shoulders above him. Heck, he lost the starting job to Jones with his poor play so this is status quo at best. Won't make a lick of difference against the Pats.

    I think this is a good move. Worilds seems better equipped to get pressure at this point. I know JJ is young, but he's not yet what I expected. I figured he'd be getting at least a few sacks/FFs by now.

    Now if we can just keep McClendon and Williams off the field, we may be better off at this point.

    I, for one, am still happy to have Jarvis Jones. He's young yet...Worilds didn't start right away, Woodley didn't start right away (both are second round picks). Give the kid some time, still green yet.
    Round 1, Pick 15 (15)- Ryan Shazier, ILB; Ohio State
    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    i agree but for gods sake why can other teams draft guys in a variety of rounds and have them start or have an impact right away but we have to wait years?
    oh, and i dont want to hear how we are great and dont have that many spots open for draft picks to take over

    Jones was never ready to start. Some used his playing as a counter to the criticism of LeBeau's system being too slow to integrate young talent but that appears to be a factor yet again.
    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!

    it's never a good idea to point out young talent getting playing time during an 0-fer streak...
