    When you don't get turnovers, you don't get cheap, quick points.

    You don't get good field position, you also want to run the ball? This is what happens.

    shouldn't of gotten rid of Saunders... granted he was one of those "can take the kid out of the hood, but not the hood out of the kid"

    he was more talented than Pope, Paulson and McCoy pput together... but the front office wasn't having anymore character probs... surprised they brought Ta' Amu back.

    With the NFL being so ridiculously pass happy we need another #1 TE. Not someone that does it all like heath, but someone who's nearly impossible to cover and creates matchup problems. A Hernandez type guy.

    Saunders had a ton of potential.

    That's why after thinking it over, even though we have larger needs, I wouldn't be upset with Eifert in the 1st round. The man is a monster.

    I like Eifert HE HAS EXCEPTIONAL HANDS not quite as athletic as i would like but the good far outweighs the bad here. As far as Saunders goes i too think he is supremely talented however he is exhibiting the same i'm just glad to be drawing a pay check adtitude .based on what i saw in college he could easily have starting job on any team but is apparently satisfied with being a 2nd or 3rd TE

    not a first rounder... DB, LB, DL, RB is a bigger "need" IMO

    we have a #2 TE David Johnson *rolls eyes*

    He won't be a Steeler next year, that leaves them with Paulson and Pope! Gronkowski and Hernandez better look out! There's a new tight end duo coming next year!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is no RB worth a first round pick in this draft so I agree RB is a bigger need then a TE but I wouldn't want a RB drafted over a TE like Eifert.......

    I also don't think any NT are worth a first round pick in this draft......

    Drafting a pass rusher is the biggest need heading into the draft and I would put safety as the next biggest need....But if Clark and Troy both return I wouldn't look for the team to draft a safety in the first but later in the draft since its a deep draft for safety's.......A corner becomes a bigger need if Lewis isn't resigned but if he is then I wouldn't look for a corner to be drafted early.....

    So I want to see a pass rusher, a TE or WR drafted in the first round....Of course if Te'o somehow falls to 17 then I would draft that kid in a heart beat....Only TE I like in the first round is Eifert....
