    Mitchell has always been a big time veteran guy. I think its raw players that he hates, but young players can get grouped in there.

    Al Woods is a perfect example...very talented, extremely athletic for his huge size, but about as raw as they came.

    However, I hope he doesn't pan out like our last "Steal of the draft in the 2nd round"....Mr. Lamar Woodley
    Personally, I'll be ecstatic if Tuitt has a sack/forced fumble that ends a Super Bowl victory for us...but that's just me.

    I'd like to see it more than once and then have him disappear as a player
    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!

    Woodley was a beast for over half of his career, just sucks it was just the first half and then he got paid all that money.

    People hate him now and discredit how good he was at one point

    Not sure anyone hates him because he was good for several years in Games 8-16 of the season and the play offs. I think more than hate people lost respect for him after he mailed it in post big contract.

    I wouldn't call him a beast though because he was wildly inconsistent even when he was good.

    D1ck Lebeau does get the final say though and could override Mitchell if he deems a younger player the better player.

    Does he? Mitchell is the Asst. Head Coach and has been with the team far longer than any other coach...

    If Mitchell says a player isn't ready, why would LeBeau overrule him?

    Man he carries 303 pounds really well, to look at him you'd think 275-280, IMO.
