    Sweed Speaks

    • Wide receiver Limas Sweed was a star receiver just a few years ago at nearby University of Texas, making him sort of a media darling at Cowboys Stadium. Sweed, who is recovering for an Achilles injury, may not figure into the Steelers plans after the season, given the emergence of rookies Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. Sweed thinks he is in the Steelers' long-term plans. "I believe so," he said.

    Hopefully he comes back and makes an impact. I'd love to see him make the team. Randle-El seems expendable.

    If Sweed would work harder and stop dropping key catches, then, maybe we will keep him on board. He is nothing but a bust so far.

    sweeds problem is not a lack of effort or hard work...hes a very dedicated player and has done everything right. calling sweed lazy is just wrong, i do think he was gonna have a decent year and contribute before the injury since year 3 is usually the money year for WRs like him. he dropped a few passes but hes been itching to get back out there.

    I know what your saying, K Train. I never said he was lazy. I know he's been hurt numerous times. I sure hope he shows up and be about what he was at Texas. I know he can be an elite receiver.

    I would say he will be there in the offseason and in camp and given the chance to make the team. Especially with guys like Arnaz Battle and Randle El that may leave or get released after this year. Sweed will get his chance to make an impact regardless of how well Brown and Sanders do. If he does well he could make the team next year and see some playing time. Especially if Hines would retire.

    Sweed hasn't had a clear chance to shine...He'll stay and ARE will be gone! You guys can't kick him to the curb for just a couple drops, it's pretty stupid really!

    hes shown hes a hard worker, a good team mate, and he can get open and can be physical as hell out there. hes a rhythm player, getting on the field cold and being asked to go deep doesnt work for him. he needs to get warmed up, get his hands dirty and feel what the defense is doing. burress was the exact same way the difference was we needed burress out there so he got those reps.

    im obviously a sweed fan, i hope he does well even if its not with us

    I agree seeing him in camp the last couple of years has shown great speed and routes, he gets over the injury bug and he can seriously round out our receiving corps big time
