    Ktrain, where is gibson right now.
    thats my point, he was a beast in the spring but was ultimately cut and is floating around on a practice squad somewhere. if he plays week one it is special teams, which is probably where he'll play all year

    One more point the article touched on was Spence seems to have the brains to learn the play-book quicker then other players......Trust me I'm not proclaiming Spence to be a starter but the quicker he learns the play-book the quicker he will be on the field......I'm anxious to see Spence and I hope he gets playing time early as a rookie.....The thought of Foote covering a TE or RB just scares me.....lol

    the day its a complete passing league is the day that a team will run all over you, you can build your defense to completely shut down the pass but you are most likely going to get destroyed on the ground.

    spence has a long ways to go to be anything other than a ST in the league...i could see him getting some nickel snaps on defense, especially later in the year but an every down LB hes got his work cut out for him

    Oh really Spence very undersized.

    Wait let me go get something quick.

    Sean Spence 231 lbs
    Lawrence Timmons 235 lbs
    Patrick Willis 240 lbs
    Jack Lambert 220 lbs

    Hmmm, yes very undersized, wonder if he can pick up that weight.

    Nothing is impossible, but this guy contributing much more than ST during his rookie season is pretty close to it, barring injuries. Again, we are making way too much of football in shorts.

    There are a lot more training camp heroes who never play in the NFL than there are rookie phenoms on the Steelers defense. This guy has not even seen training camp yet.
