    Never in my wildest dreams...

    …did I think Troy Polamalu was going to be the player he has turned out to be in the NFL. I saw every game Troy played in college. I knew he was goodbut never thought he would turn into the player he became in the NFL. I don’t think anybody knew this. With his speed andbeing put into the right system, he blew up. He became one of the league’s bestdefensive players. An impact player.

    I could easily see the same thing for Ryan Shazier.

    We got that pick in lightning fast.

    Looks like Colbert saying he was willing to trade down was a big fat lie. I had a feeling there was someone we really wanted. This kid is a super athlete and super productive.

    He's definitely in the system that will make him a star if he wants it.

    I think the Steelers board had Fuller then Shazier. Once Fuller gone they must have really wanted Shazier because they did not take much time so weren't entertaining trades.
    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!

    ...and he has been best defensive player on the team for past three years. Good decision.

    Yes, he's presided over the decline of the defense.
