    Not necessarily. It could mean neither are impressive, UGIi so disappointing Allen was needed at the position.

    I'm going to guess Allen weighs more than he did when he was drafted

    I like the move personally. The Steelers like their safeties to be interchangeable and I think playing S in Pittsburgh didn't fit his skill set.

    He's more of a thumper like Vince. He was a hustler in college that likes to hit people.

    He may have to bulk up a bit, but I can see this kid as a play maker if they can use him the right way. And I heard Jerry O is pretty excited to be working with him.

    I gotta admit, the Steelers D frustrates me at times. We try to fit every player into our system vs trying to allow guys to excel at their strengths and modify the D to the player's strengths at times.

    Especially if he/they knew he was gonna play ILB. But just looking at him, he still won't be anywhere as heavy as ILBs usually are. Imagine a dude that small trying to shake off an OG or C?!?!?!?!?

    Gilbert didn't even make the active list for the Giants game. Disappointing.

    BTW, little Booger didn't make it, either.
