    I pray you bear me henceforth from the noise and rumour of the field, where I may think the remnant of my thoughts in peace, and part of this body and my soul with contemplation and devout desires.

    Pity is the virtue of the law, and none but tyrants use it cruelly.


    Suprised he was still able to play at the ripe old age of 372. Musta hit his stride late.. glad he dropped the "William," Bill is a better football name.

    Figures had such a huge upside, he was really coming into his own before he got shot in the leg in that drive by , he was just never the same after that.

    Man what you can say about Troy Headwards
    I wonder if he would have amounted to anything if he would'nt have been so arrogant on the field and would of just try to learn from Ward when He tried to take him under his wing.

    Ok So, Knoll starts his career by drafting a DL by the name of Joe Greene. Cowher starts off by drafting an OL by the name of Leon Searcy. Who will Tomlin start off with?

    Edwards was such a reach in the first place, we never should have taken him so high. We were hell bent on a WR that year and he was all that was left

    How many top picks in all the NFL drafts have out and out bombed. Seems to me as though alot of really great college players just could not make that next level. Thanks, Kyle for putting that list together, now when are we going to see your name on "the list" <Kyle told me is going to play for JoePa so I am patiently awaiting Kyle's draft into the NFL>
    Peace & Yours in Black 'N Gold,
