    well not all, keisel is a pressure guy, that's why ppl were doubting him at the beginning because they didn't think he could be anymore then a pressure guy, they thought he'd get ran all over..........and casey is from ut, and i could've sworn we play 4-3.......so a change wouldn't be to bad if we did it right now, just the db's suck, troy gets bombed on at will in this system i doubt he'd be good in another system............

    100 %

    Running a hybrid scheme and using the 43 in certain situations would be a very good thing for us and could make us even more potent on defense but running a 43 now with the defensive players we have wouldn't work. It would take a couple years minimum of drafting players and getting FA's to build it properly.

    DRAFT Needs

    Players learn to adapt to the rules, or atleast the good ones do or they go bye bye. I think corner is a need. The degree to which that need is addressed will be up to Coach Tomlin and his staff. Depth for the O line is a need also. With the likelyhood that Hartings may not return this need may go to the front of the order. This draft should be interesting.

    I'm not convinced this kid is a "shutdown corner"... a lot of Steelers fans seem to like him.

    Sorry... I was speaking of Marcus McCauley.

    I'm not sure where the thread went after the original post.

    Eh, I'm happy with Ike and McFadden, they just need a good DB coach.

    The Steelers have spent several premium picks over the last few years on DB's, Im just not sure I can see them spending another on one this year. McFadden, Taylor, and Smith were all day 1 picks, and Polamalu a few years back was a first round. I'd had to think they believe in this current group enough to give them a shot under a new coach and see how they do.

    and we all may hate coc but he still has potential, we drafted him in the second round.....maybe he'll break out this year, you never know.....a lot of ppl were giving up on ike and bam he became a stud for us......so we still got potential and some depth, i don't think we'll draft a corner in the first 3 rounds....i think we'll draft OL and LB not in any order i just see us getting those positions in the first 3 rounds........ a wet dream will be hunt in the 2nd lol........
