    am I supposed to be happy that Pierre is doing well or worried that Ben is throwing interceptions?
    As long as it is one guy making the picks I'd go with Pierre playing well.

    When Ben starts sharing that love woth everyone I'll be concerned.

    I would take another Deshea Townsend type player in a heartbeat. I always liked Deshea’s game…smart, consistent and reliable. I’d be more than happy if Pierre brings that type of game to the Steelers secondary.

    Looks like Pierre has picked up on some of the mental aspects of the game quickly.

    I'll take another D Townsend without hesitation

    If that is who Pierre turns out to be like we have a win
    Taking pride in the fact that I'm right so often and he is wrong so often, that Steel Maniac has to have me on "Ignore"

    I would take the positives of Deshea's game without the negative.....5' 10" vs. 6' 2".

    Part of me worries about everyone dropping passes last season.

    And Tomlin's comments last pre-season about spirals not being great.

    I really hope that he pans out.

    Getting a starter, or even quality depth from a random pick up like this would really help a secondary that's going to need a fair amount of help in the next few years (maybe even this year).

    Maybe we need to move Pierre to offense then.
