    Steelers wide receivers

    Did anyone see the catch Jones just made for Green Bay? Of course many will instinctively suck off Rodgers for making a "great" pass, but anyone who doesn't have an inclination towards sucking off quarterbacks knows that that catch was all Jones. And that brings me to the Steelers. Any big time wide receivers worth taking in the first round since this team doesn't have a #1 receiver that Roethlisberger can count on?

    depending on what happens in the offseason with our receivers outside of brown, I'd think we would address other positions of need first

    I wouldn't waste that first round pick on anything other than a top receiver, top tight end or a great offensive lineman.

    So you think taking Jarvis Jones or Mante T'eo would be a waste of the first round pick? On a defense that has 7 starters over 30, 2 safeties and 2 OLB that both miss huge amounts of time and a CB that's likely to leave in FA?

    I agree with Nolrog. We need to fix that D-line and linebackers. That should be our priority. We've used enough first round picks on the O-line and there are no WR worth a first round selection. And I'm not wasting a first round pick on a TE. Please.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Seeing what was supposedly the second best defense in the league give up 38 points in a loss to miserable Flacco, and seeing the supposedly third best defense give up 24 points reaffirms my personal opinion that the Steelers defense is not an issue that needs to be addressed above offense. I completely disagree with many on this forum who feel the defense needs to be improved or addressed when this defense was supposedly first in the league as is.

    This is now an offensive league. It has been for many years now and it only gets worse every season. New rules are designed every season to bolster offensive gameplay and old rules are reinterpreted by the refs to further bolster offensive gameplay. The NFL is now America's sport, which means all the former bandwagon baseball fans who only watched because it was popular and only cared to see homeruns now watch the NFL and they only want to see TDs, specifically of the passing variety. The casual NFL fan doesn't want to see 13-10 games, especially not in the playoffs. The NFL knows that and acts accordingly.

    A pass rusher probably will not help us win playoff games, IF we make the playoffs. This team scored 4 or more TDs only one time the entire season. The Dolphins, Browns, Bills, Titans, Jets, and Raiders scored 4 or more TDs more than once. And that's just some of the sloppy NFL teams that were able to do it more than the Steelers. This team is offensively deficient at this point. It has fallen behind most other teams and some much needed talent on the offensive line and WR positions is what this offense and team needs more than anything else.

    Its not a great draft for WR's but there is some talents that are intriguing were the Steelers will pick in the first round......I agree with you about the WR's.....I would love to see Ben with Green Bay's WR's........
