    Until we get that, pedigree is the only information we have. We'll certainly have a better idea after a full season.

    The problem is that there are fairly serious questions about all our OL (although I think the questions about Dotson were drummed up for clicks). So we need several bets to come through at the same time.

    I don't get why pointing out what seem like obvious questions on the OL is seen as unreasonable by some.
    I hear you but he just said it doesn’t matter what round we picked him in.

    Back when he was drafted it was implied that being a day 3 pick meant we should. curb the enthusiasm.

    Never said it was unreasonable to question a pick.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    IIRC most of the questions surrounding Moore were about him being starter ready. Most of what I saw in terms of scouting reports were that he was expected to be a good starting LT in this league just maybe not day 1. I'm hoping the fact that he looks like he will be starting is more about his abilities to play rather than nobody else looking like they can.

    I think it was Moore (pun intended) than that since the poster was breaking down what round players are licked and success rates.

    Just thought it was ofd to hear the round wasn’t important after remembering the initial reaction based on when he was drafted.

    Could also be a motivation for Green
    Was that on cut down day? They had a roster out where guys were pretty much just removed from the sheet, not necessarily a depth chart. Green is listed as the starter now.

    lmao.. I want some fighters but I don’t want cheap penalties.

    They called a taunting penalty on a lineman last night that nullified a 15 yarder for a punch. I think refs are going to use that taunting penalty a lot in these first few weeks.

    This rule is going to suck. And since it will be inconsistently called, every fanbase will feel like the victim.

    I expect that we will see some immaturity and stupidity here and there. That's what you get when you go with rooks, especially after you pound in their heads to be more aggressive. Seasoned vets sometimes have a brain fart, why wouldn't we expect kids to? The big question is how long will it take them to adjust to the NFL?

    My guess is that by Monday we will be hearing calls for the Steelers to bench or cut both Moore and Green. There will be at least one person writing in to one of those Steeler columns asking if we think it would be a good idea for Ben to call Pouncey to try to talk him into returning.
