i wouldnt mind patterson at all, i think hes a phenomenal talent, but a lot fo you are wanting that "play right now" guy and patterson may not be it
Allen, Patterson, Hopkins, Williams, Wheaton........A WR must be drafted early since Mike Wallace won't be back.....I would be happy with one of those five drafted within the first two rounds.....
theres steelers that have made some good coaches...lake being one of them, and for being such a talented player thats a rarity. Usually its the less talented guys that rely on masting technique that make good coaches.
Charlie batch would be a better QB coach than he is backup QB (see john harbaugh, not that good of a QB but gets what it takes to be one)...I believe deshea townsend is a DB coach somewhere, he thrived on technique and smarts rather than raw ability. Not saying stallworth COULDNT be a coach (even though that was a random name drop) but just because he was a WR doesnt mean he has a future in developing them
John Stallworth owns part of the club. He doesn't have to coach. He's made MILLIONS more money off the field than he ever did as a player.
I suppose if the great J. Stallworth had leanings toward coaching, we would have seen them by now. Moreover, one would expect the Steelers to fill that spot with someone with significant coaching experience.
Someone like Harold Jackson at Baylor has a wealth of experience in the NFL and in college. They've generated a pretty explosive offensive down there.
harold jackson is a relavant name to throw out there....between kendall wright, josh gordon, and terrence williams they have really wow'd when it comes to developing WR talent
vikes will attempt to trade percy harvin....theres something id be interested in. 17 would be tough to give up but id give up a second and third in a heartbeat
I am sticking to my guns and feel it has to be LB in the first round. Our defense is predicated on the play of this group and lately Harrison and Woodley haven't been able to stay healthy. Worilds and Carter have shown a little with what little playing time they have had. Foote is getting up there in age, although I would be tempted to bring him back next season. Timmons is a beast. After that, not much to hang your hat on. Spence may have been a good prospect, but it is hard telling if and when he will be back from that gruesome injury.
I'd pass on Harvin.
