LMAO

hartwig gone is glorious and a huge ego boost for me with them giving up on urbik after only one year. what a failed pick since the moment they called his name. now i turn my attention to frank summers. i got urbik and shipley out of the way, once summer is gone ill be 3/4 only leaving hood who has been unimpressive in game action as well

love when its forbidden to have a negative opinion on picks like urbik and bruce davis and then one year in they are out of football

I think we all knew these two would be released eventually, get rid of the rest of the dead weight such as Summers, Sweed, Lefty we will be alright.

kinda suprised... we finally started hearing good things about Urbik! He seemed to play well this preseason, but i dont ever think he'll be a starter on this team. They better get SOMEONE who can play guard as a back up though! If this takes shape we have Foster, Legursky and... is there anyone else!?!

I won't be surprised if Urbik is gone, although I was thinking that Hartwig was going to be safe for this year yet if for no other reason than we have nobody else to play Center that is halfway decent if Pouncey were to get hurt or otherwise go on an unforeseen downward spiral. Obviously the latter probably isn't going to happen but you never know with injuries these days.

I just like having decent backups to step in if need be, but then again we haven't had decent backups for so long I almost forget what it's like to have them anyways.

They're not going to get rid of Leftwich, he'll be put on IR. He's going to be Ben's backup after Dixon leaves us at the end of this year.

Dixon is not going anywhere, I talked to him before TC and he loves pittsburgh and plans to stay and renew his contract. Steelers are not going to get rid of him becuase of what he brings to the table as a momentum changer. I honestly believe that dixon and ben will share reps after ben comes back when the offense is hitting there normal barriers. Ben is dixon biggest supporter, Ben has mentored dixon since he came here. According to Double D ben was at Dixons pre draft workout and ben was one of the main factors to dixon being drafted 5th round since everybody had him as a rookie free agent signing since the knee injury. Ben and dixon helped dixon get drafted here. so ben must really feel comfortable for him to be his back up. Even when dixon threw those picks against denver ben was the first one there talking to him. giving him encouragment. If ben didn't think dixon was worth anything then he would be just chillin on the sidelines.

Oh and apparently the 53 was released behind closed doors. Or they just told Sanders he's on the team. Via facebook:

The best news i have heard all day:clap: man he sucked as a FB I'm glad that Urbust and Hartpig will be let go also, Congrats ES and AB and Dwyer and Butler these cats earned a spot on the roster, Urbik looked liked sh^! all preseason to me... K Train u were right about that horrible draft we had 2 years ago, this year draft made up for it though, we had a great value draft this year IMO...

I was gonna say the only thing I thought he had was his upside. I didnt really see anything out of the preseason from him. I dont know, well see.

Dwyer showed some potential in the last two pre-season games, good vision, downhill runner and some good moves.

Worth protecting, still needs work on other parts of his game and barring injury unlikely to see the field this time around, but if all goes to plan a Mendy, Red and Dwyer triple threat could be a nightmare for defences next year.

Go Steelers.

If Summers warrented a "courtesy" year then Dwyer certainly does too. He was rated as high as the #2 overall back by some predraft reports.

gibson was a 2nd round guy to me, another year at OSU and he would have been a first round talent imo, i thought that dwyer could have gone as high as 32 to the saints since they coveted beanie wells last year...he slipped because a failed drug test i believe....which ended up being adderall, which isnt a big deal at all i take that **** to study, i kind of believe thats what cause him to lose alot of weight in the offseason, not eating is a side effect. getting them in rounds 4 and 6 were big time wins for the steelers, something im not used to saying about mid round steeler picks

gibson is very raw but a man child and i love him and dwyer has some work to do as far as blocking and conditioning go, but both were extraordinary value picks in their rounds

I didn't understand the reaction to the failed drug test. My understanding is that he had informed them he had ADHD and was taking Adderall, which was prescribed for him. Didn't he gain a lot of weight between OTAs and TC and coaches were upset with him for coming to camp oveweight? Are you talking about when he came to OTAs and weighed less? I hadn't heard anything about that except that he had gained weight since then.

LMFAO,Where he hell did you find that mock draft because they probably tried to hide that one, matter of fact the writer is probably looking for a job as a bag boy in an iowa grocery store because I don't think they got one pickright just in the first round so I wouldn't use that as an example.
Just sayin
Sorry try again

By the way I didn't say he shouldn't be on the team but haven't seen much from him, hell redman did better against the scrubs then he did this year and nobody wanted redman

it was an extremely early mock....not really anything out of the question in it.

I know Dywer has so much Potential but so did Sweed and he broke my heart(thanks Wallace for picking me up) I just don't think he is a top 5 RB, even if he compliments your feature back, no way
Good value in the 3rd ot 4th round

the browns have one of your top 5.. probably done for his career..

dwyers will be a great deal. he is strong. he moves smooth. he needs his time. mendenhall looked like he may not be to good when he started.. he couldnt get parker off the field. but he really exploded.. and still has a way to go.

hopefully we get some big leads and dwyers actually can play in a few plays... :cope:

Eagles C Jamaal Jackson Has Torn Triceps
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid confirmed on Monday that center Jamaal Jackson has a torn triceps.

Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.

Jackson returned to action late in the 2010 pre-season after tearing an ACL in Week 17 of the 2009 season. With Jackson expected to miss the rest of the season, Mike McGlynn is expected to take over the starting center duties.

Reid also confirmed that fullback Leonard Weaver suffered a "very severe" tear of the ACL in his left knee and will have season-ending surgery on Tuesday, and that middle linebacker Stewart Bradley and quarterback Kevin Kolb sustained concussions.
