    Apparently the strategy is to draft every lineman possible that we know will flop just so we can draft some more who will flop, but we'll be sure to keep those guys around as backups because they have so much "potential"..and then we'll give them an open competition in the 2007 training camp just to see who can step and an flop again so we can be sure that we have absolutely no good line to speak of for the entire 2007 season !!

    We let ourself get way too outdated at the OL position and it's biting us in the *** big time.

    The Steelers claimed linebacker Marquis Cooper and added him to their active roster. Cooper was claimed off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Cooper (6-3, 220), a four-year veteran, was released by the Steelers earlier this year (Sept. 19) and was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 27. He played in one game for the Jaguars (Week 13 versus Indianapolis).
    To make room for Cooper, the Steelers released Marvin Philip. Philip, a second-year center, spent time on both the Steelers’ active roster and practice squad this year

Smith stays at LT, and Colin battles Starks for RT spot (possibly ... if they want to resign Starks .... we'll see how that goes). Colin and Mahan will be valuable due to their ability to play other positions.

    i agree on some points koopa but i think they address rt n the free agent market, they definetly draft the best center or rt n the 1st round, if any r left, faneca needs 2 b gone wilfolk made him look bad yesterday colon sucks big time , starks may not want 2 b here he's an unrestricted f.a, so we have 2 up grade the o-line positon as well as the d-line we need quality depth on the d-line.................

    i despise reading your posts but i will respond anyway.

    THERE ARE NO CENTERS WORTH TAKING I THE FIRST ROUND. there rarely is, center is not a first round position, and neither is guard unless you can get an absolute stud. We will take a tackle, its our biggest need and the only spot with first round value in a class stacked with OTs. Once we get THAT OT, everything else will fall into place, hopefully with colon as a guard. and we draft a solid center in the 3rd
