    More silly logic

    That said, the Patriots have become a model because they have been producing a winning team year in and out (even with one year without Brady). We might not like them, but I can at least respect that they might know a thing or two.

    Their recent drafting history is very suspect

    Not sure why everyone fawns over them, but go right ahead I guess

    I think you know why everyone fawns over them...

    I don't like them but I still can admit they know how to make an average team play above average.

    Call me one who "fawns" over Bellicheck. I actually believe him to be the best coach in football by a mile. The fact that he takes shots at QBs that don't pan out shows you that a guy who knows what he is doing sees value in taking chances in the draft to develop a premium position. He knows Brady can't play forever, and knows he needs to find someone to develop. That is what the Steelers did with Landry Jones.

    Develop into what Shawn?

    A servicable back up?

    That seems to be what most feel landry jones ceiling is. You can sign a guy off the street for that which has always been my contention. Im sick of talking about the guy. Lets see how he does in preseason and go from there.

    Stop. You have no idea what Jones will or wont be. If the Steelers missed ok. But, I'm glad to see them try to develop a legit QB college QB.

    Many thought Tim Couch would be an NFL star, but, THIS is why he wasn't... he had zero experience making reads... many blame it on the Browns poor team that surrounded him, but, that wasn't it... their playbook was like 10 plays, most of them predetermined reads and quick throws, where the WR got the ball in space and made his numbers look ridiculous

    agreed on the risk. disagree on BB being the best coach in football... that tandem still hasn't won a super bowl since they made them stop cheating...

    maybe we picked Landry Jones because we were concerned that we might not be able to afford to re-sign Ben or that it might not be financially feasible?

    Word around NFL is that when Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson get new deals next year, they will come in between $24-$25 million per year.

    It's another example of the Steelers trying to be too cute instead of just taking the obvious picks, like the Ravens do. Ozzie's philosophy is to just keep hitting doubles all draft long. I hate the Jones pick. Almost any other position would have been more prudent.
