    Don't you know? Once you're put in as a starter in June the job is yours for the season, unless you get injured, no one can earn their way into the lineup by working hard, it's that senile idiot LeBeau.

    At best Bustamarko is the next Ryan Mundy.

    To be fair, we have seen this movie before and that has us gun shy. We were very high on Sharko, as were the coaches. Hearing he is no higher than the 4th safety has us fearing the past may repeat itself.

    funny how the same people who lauded the selection of a back up back up QB in the same draft are wondering about the wisdom of trading a 3rd for shark

    just doesnt add up

    both selections look dubious at this point

    Forget what this sportswriter wrote for a minute. Was there anyone who saw anything in ST's game that he didn't like?
    Slow to react to the ball in the air?
    Couldn't get through trash?
    Slow to diagnose the play?
    Motor ran hot and cold?
    Couldn't cover slot wr in big nickle D?
    Can't play zone coverage?
    Slow blitzing from the slot?
    Liability on special teams?
    Poor tackler?
    If you didn't see these flaws or others then let us just enjoy the fact this young S has a lot to work with. He's only going to get even better!

    You are beating that dead horse with a bat. You are dangerously close to an Oveido level of horse beating...lol.

    It's hard for me to understand that kind of mentality. He has flashed some nice play. His teammates have nothing but good to say about him and his play. I truly believe he will be very solid for us.

    yet, 2 minutes after he was drafted it was okay to call him a great pick, stud, starter, prowbowler etc etc

    2) OLB R Shazier

    Nope, don't "love" Landry and don't ever know he will be a future starter. But, I will say this the Steelers needed to start looking at the QB position and begin developing a guy. Was Landry the right pick? I don't know. But, I was glad to see the Steelers being proactive rather than scrambling when Ben is no longer playing like Ben. I was tired of seeing the Steelers bring in guys they knew couldn't make this squad or develop guys who couldn't throw a ball. Landry has all the physical tools to be a very good QB. That I know. I think you will see that in the preseason with a significant jump in his play. What I worry about with Landry is what landed him in the third. Does he have the mental toughness to play well in big games? That is the big ???
