-first round pick RB
and what do we have to show for it? A whole lot of nothing that's what! A line that can't block, backs that get hurt, a QB who doesn't see the field, WR's who aren't coming back to help the QB and an under utilized TE and a whole bunch of 3 and outs.
It's truly a pathetic state this team is in right now; Tomlin has to step up to the plate and fix this ship because the water is beginning to come over the bow as we speak and the lifeboats are full of holes.
....all that with no o-line is like having a ferrari on an island...cool, fast, high-performance....but you can't go any where with it
Just like the Detriot Lions.....ask Batch what can be done when a qb is on his back....because he was on his back most of the time he was in Detriot. They have been "rebuilding" their team for the last 10 years, as you know they draft the best WR, RB, TE, etc but never touch the OL. The Steelers remind me of them because nbo matter how great a player is, he is going nowhere without protection. When was the last time the Steelers addressed the OL in the draft?
Check this out:
I wonder if he is still happy with the 2008 draft.
