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!
Before you start sending people after the quarterback, you need to have some cover behind it, don't you? The Steeler defense was lacking in so many places last year that blaming the play calling is like blaming a fork for being obese.

Guys and gals,
If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.
Suggs ran a 4.85, which is what Jones supposedly ran...Jones also reportedly tweaked a hamstring during his 40, but continued with the workout anyway...
In his first season at Georgia after transferring from USC, Jones (6-3, 241, 4.65 40-yard dash) displayed the game-changing talent to make plays behind the line—something that was expected of him when he first arrived at USC. Jones has the agility to change directions in a blur to avoid blocks, and the lightning-quick burst to finish plays, which led to his 19½ tackles for loss and 13½ sacks in 2011. With so many NFL teams playing 3-4 defenses, Jones could be a top 10 pick as an outside linebacker because there is a premium on playmakers at that position. Projection: First-round pick
Btw, James Harrison was timed at one point at 4.85 in the 40. So again, the 40 doesn't really equate to ability to play LB.
Back to Harrison and those "measurables." Can you guess what his 40-yard time was? It was 4.85. I believe he was able to make it to the quarterback over 60 times during his career in Pittsburgh.
Oh, and there was that 100-yard dash--he sure looked pretty fast there:
Truthfully, JH did not look fast in that 100 yard dash...it was a combo of good blocking and the same indomitable will that made an undrafted player who was cut four times into a Defensive Player of the Year...
