    Remember the hatred with Larry Foote starting?

    Foote >>> Matakevich

    But now many are there
    ready to settle with Dirty Red. God help us.
    You make a valid point. Foote is a level above any ILB on the roster right now.

    Barring injury, the starting inside guys are Bostic and Williams. No question. What's happening now in shorts has nothing to do with what happens come the season.

    And I don't believe anyone loves the idea of Matekevich being the starter or that he's a top tier LB in the history of Steelers LBs. But he is a feel good story. The 2nd pick of the 7th round - #245 - out of Temple, who basically willed himself onto the team through hard work, determination, and heart, not believing that 7th rounders don't make the squad. What's not to like?

    Not to mention making the Pro Bowl on Special Teams with only one good arm...

    I think he is valid depth, though I also expect Bostic to be a credible starter and fit in well with the defense...

    why would anyone get upset over reps in OTA's?

    Boom.......

    Thatís fine. Tomlin can hitch his wagon to him if he wants. Just like Harbaugh hitched his wagon to Kapernick.

    It seems to me we are doing the best we can with the personnel we got.

    "You can't always get what you want".


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Colbert/ Tomlin did try and trade up to get Evans. They did try. I’ll give them that. Edmunds was obviously plan B

    I wanted us to trade up for Terrell Edmunds' younger brother Tremaine when he slipped down to the middle of round one.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    I'm going to give Dirty Red a chance. The guy is always around the football and is a solid tackler. He kinda reminds me of a Zach Thomas who was slow and undersized but turned out to be a very good linebacker. I can hope that Matakevich turns out to be the same.
