    Truth be told, free agent gems are FAR more likely to be from lesser schools. You can be an outstanding player but (rightfully) get knocked for low...

    Well since nobody has applauded the return to hard nosed football like I have even started the thread on the topic..sounds like a shot at me?

    Over-reliance on Bens arm at the expense of the run game.

    Our SB seasons-

    2005

    2010

    What they have in common?
  4. This draft was all about a return to tough, intimidate..real STEELER FOOTBALL.

    No doubt we all were surprised and frustrated by certain picks. But it is easy to see what they were trying to do if you sit back a minute.

    For YEARS we have gone away from real traditional...

    Don't you know that's ALWAYS the answer. Sure they just fired the last one but you have to keep firing them like the Browns.

    Rapid fire...like a machine gun.

    This makes ZERO sense.

    You know I wanted center round one. People said the center class was so deep we could get one later and I bought in.

    We saw them do exactly that with Kiesel. He sat behind Kimo and beefed up so that when Kimo was done he was ready to go.

    This is reminiscent of that. If he pans out it will save us from having to...

    Weirdly, I think these guys are kinda similar. Creed is more the more polished, day one ready guy. He also has more prototype size, but at the line position where size matters least.

    Sometimes the coach just goes for experience...frustratingly so.

  21. "Pre-Draft" thoughts by Moats about our new tight end

    He really wanted this guy. Expected to have to trade up in the second to get him.
    Interesting to see how he as a defender sees this kids skill set.
