    Lance Moore was an afterthought behind the Saint's loaded offense: From Colston to Jimmy Graham to Darren Sproles etc. With Ben, he'll have a chance to be a good possesion receiver and is a big upgrade over Sanders. I don't get all the hate either....who else was out there to grab?

    And Wheaton? He's no more than a dream for us right now. Hopefully he will step up. And having the veteran presence of a Moore is nothing but a good thing for Wheaton's development.

    I don't think anyone HATES this signing. I just think fans are frustrated that we don't have a legit #2 guy.

    a big upgrade over sanders? Possible, I suppose.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I didn't know a whole lot on Cotchery when he signed and I grew to like him. I'll do the same with Moore. My only hesitation is that he's 5'9". I think the Steelers needed to sign a vet though and I hope he'll do well. Hopefully Brown or Moye will come out of a successful TC and give us some of that size needed for the position. Or a draft pick..

    FA WRs this year were slim pickings imo. Earl Bennet would have given a little more size but he left Chicago because he didn't want a paycut (probably more to it that I don't know) so he prob. wouldn't even sniff an offer from the Steelers.
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford
    6. (comp) Shaquil Barrett OLB Colorado State
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    it would take a DC a couple minutes to come up with a game plan to shut down that group of wrs

    for that lineup to be as good or better than last year is nothing short of a pipe dream
    How many Tds did Coth have combined before this year with the Steelers. Look it up Mr. Doom

    Here's the MORAL of the STORY:
    It's a good signing but We still need to draft a WR or pass catching TE in the 1st or 2nd round

    Moore is a excellent pickup, the guy is a baller and catches like Hines with equal or better hands and will make the tough catch.
    Teams slept on him in FA and the Steelers didn't.

    Watching this, maybe not the speed of Sanders, but 10x the hands:



    Seems this is a one-for-one swap with Cotch.

    He sure knows how to give extra to make a catch. Hopefully he turns out to be a good signing when they start playing!
