    It's completely different...

    The Patriots were the team willing to give up a 3rd for Sanders...the Steelers just went with the devil they knew...

    im no fan of sanders but taking the pick wasnt an easy decesion

    team already lost wallace and knew miller wouldnt be available for the 1st half of the season. now your asking a team with playoff aspiration to lose yet another receiver that knows the offense. essentially going into the season with AB (before his breakout year) and cotch. annnd as we've seen with wheaton, it isn't easy for a rookie to come in and contribute right away. even a 1st rounder like santonio took half a season to break into the starting line up

    Disagree the Steelers err'd in keeping Sanders. They are set up exactly the way they wanted, being a good WR class for mid-level talent says they replace Sanders production without much problem.
    Aside from a few draft gaffes (Sweed, Edwards), the Steelers seem to have the knack for finding later round talent to work (or their QB is working miracles to make lesser talent look so good).

    It isn't a miracle... a good/great QB makes WRs look good.
