    we really dont have any gaping holes this year, last year was a mess in general and i blame that on bens lack of staying healthy, and cowhers lack of motivation, the more i think about it the more i think that oline and linebackers arent really THAT big of a deal and we have no idea how this new coach is gonna draft. I think our roster is pretty much together, i really have no idea on how tomlin is gonna approach the draft this year, i dont think we go oline in the first, we would take blalock or brown, but i dont think that is our biggest issue because although inconsistant, last year our oline was dominate at times, and i think that can be credited to gameplan issues from cowher just not being into it anymore....idk, im over analyzing im gonna go cry now

    I'm sure they kept Okobi around for a reason... so I wouldn't be suprised if he was good, but I wouldn't put all my stock into a guy who had career saving neck surgery six months ago.

    If we didn't draft an OL in 2007 we could have a pretty darn good one made up of guys on our team already, just shake up the line up some and we could be golden. Of course that implies that everybody steps up their game, but overall I think this team would be foolish not to atleast address some depth at OL and LB early on.

    Not at all, we have some really good potential on this team now at OL with Essex, Kemoeatu, Okobi, Colon. I like Chris K's aggressive attitude and mean streak similar to what Colon has, I think those 2 could make a formidable right side of the line. Essex did show some potential like he, Kemoeatu, and Colon, we need to see them play more before we can make a judgement call.

    Excellent points, guys. I think Jeff Hartings may have one more season in him and may come back thinking this could be yet another Super Bowl Season. We do have a core of guys that are capable of putting good protection for Ben and company.

    My Starters:

    Smith
    Faneca
    Hartings (Okobi [ This guy had neck surgery, I am not sold on him or his neck being healed] or Simmons will battle if Hartings retires)
    Kemoeatu (Essex could fit into the puzzle here also, there is going to be a battle for this spot)
    Colon (Starks being the odd man out)

    Simmons, you have to give him a little slack cause he is diabetic and that has a tendency to make your body go whack. I will give him a little benefit of the doubt. I like our chances. I agree we need to get a Guard or Center on day 1 of the draft. We also need to look into a couple picks for the defense and secondary. A backup Running Back that can power his way for a few yards to give Willie some rest would be highly beneficial also, I see this in Day 2. We'll see. Excellent thread going here. You guys are really hitting the nail.

    Yeah, Larry Zierlein... He has coached with both Arians and Tomlin in the past. Who knows?

    I hope Harting's retires...one cuz of his knees and two so we don't cut him. The reason for that is he already took a pay cut as did Staley (hes gone) so if we cut Hartings what kind of message is that to other players to take a pay cut? Philips? we or Cowher must have liked him to carry 3 centers on the roster.....we don't need 3 C's, Chukki might get cut also Colon will be a beast for us at T. Starks hasn't lived up to his potential yet, he could be a beast BUT how long are we going to wait? offer him a minimum tender to at least get a 3rd rd pick if someone does pick him up, I think he'll be with us a little longer. Time to get a replacement to get ready to take over for Simmons, he ain't getting any younger. We could probably make do with what we got especially if theres a chance of us reaching for a OL that isn't there. We need an OLB first....IMHO.
