    Most here wanted a Derrick Thomas type rookie season from JJ. I still have hope. I also just hope that he does not need to be on the left to be good or flash like Worilds.

    The TEs would actually play. A TE could probably produce one sack on defense too. Besides, probably every TE we have on the roster is faster than JJ.
    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!

I'm not a Underwear Olympic guy, but there is a point where it has to raise eyebrows. 4.9? I can run a 4.9!
    Vontaze Burflict ran a 5.1 forty. Isn't he around the league leaders in tackles for his 2 years in the league? I'd take him. Just because Jones ran a 4.9 doesn't mean he can't play in this league. Instinct, smarts and quickness will determine the impact of a player most of the time ... not straight line speed.

    bustamalu jones? bustamarvis?

    Admittedly, he did give me visions of Jason Gildon in his limited pass rushing arsenal... and build (chicken legs)...

    What did you see in JJ that gives you hope for his future?

    I personally like the guy. Met him in camp and he was super nice and engaging. And I thought he looked quick off the snap against our tackles who we quickly found out were awful to start the season.

    Once we get into the season, I didn't expect much from him in his first year. But I did think we should see him blow by someone off the snap or overpower someone or have a pass rush move or 2 to beat someone. And I literally saw none of that. Sure people jumped the gun on Troy and Timmons but you could see special talent in those guys where they may have gotten mixed up in their responsibilities, but they flat out beat guys too from time to time. I can't think of a play where JJ really beat someone.

    The part that makes me nervous about him is ROLB is the premiere player in our D. And we've got a kid that's smallish, slow, and lacks strength at this point manning our most important spot.

    The only positive thing I can really say about JJ is he doesn't give up on a play. I just don't know if he's a good fit at ROLB. I'd like to see him be successful, but I just don't see how it's gonna happen at this point?

    I thnk so too... that hit on CJ and his play on ST's showed me he has a nose for the ball. Its rare for a rookie on D to play fast so it makes for a struggle when the guy is smallish as well.
