    He's the best secondary playmaker we have had since Polamalu and he's only been here six games.

    So far I think it's worth the trade. He's pretty much swung the momentum of the game the last two games.

    Steelers were losing to Dolphins 14-3, he gets a pick at mid-field Steelers march down and get a touch down make it 14-10 at half.

    Steelers are looking at the barrel of the gun of going down 17-3 or maybe 13-3, and he gets a pick six to tie it at 10-10.
    His pick six was a massive swing of points your talking a minimum of a 10 point swing to maybe a 14 point swing there.

    This was guy we needed and Colbert looks smart at the moment. There ares as many busts 1st rounders as good talents.
    It luckily appears the Stelers are playing their way out of the top 15 NFL draft selections, lets hope they keep doing it.

    Fitzpatrick is the real thing. He's not showing bust qualities at all.

    I still think the Steelers try to trade up to the top part of round 2. Everything I read this is a deep draft this upcoming year.

    I have to admit that I had my doubts upon hearing of giving up a 1st for a guy that I really hadn't heard of. But thank God, that it has panned out so far

    He's been worth the first overall pick so far

    Semi-duplicate threads are OK if they elicit universal positive spin from TSF Peanut Gallery - a fresh breath of Spring air. Good psychology SDOT! And yes, MF was worth next year's 1st Rd pick. He reminds me so much of Rod Woodson talent-wise and size-wise. Woodson was 6-0 205 and MF is 6-1 207, practically twins. Both ran track but Rod was faster with a 10.26 100 M vs Minkah's 10.86. Hoping his career is as long and distinguished as Rod's and joins him in Canton one day as a Steeler.

    No no no. You aren't allowed to switch up if he has one bad game or the pick ends up being Top 10. There's no FS in the next draft anywhere near as good as him. It's worth it all day.

    Sorry is it a duplicate? I saw one thread at the bottom of page 1 by somebody with like 5 post. No context or stats provided. Just normal nonsense rambling.

    Yes but knew that when they made the trade. He's just backing it up now with his play.

    If he starts struggling I'll prob take back the worth the number 1 overall pick talk but he's still worth the first rounder no matter what happens from here on out.. Because he's shown no signs of not being great

    I don't see how he starts struggling. If he can come in Week 3 on short notice and do this. Just imagine what he can do with a camp and real preparation.

    Although the trade looks good to us now I guarantee that it's going to be a horrible trade in the spring as the draft approaches.

    It won't matter if MF has 25 more pick 6s this year, including 3 in the Super Bowl, is DPOY, SB MVP, league MVP, and finds the cure for cancer during the off season, we're going to be complaining about not having a 1st as the draft approaches.
    The consensus will be "MF is ok, but we could've drafted (insert name here) if Tomlin and Colbert weren't such idiots".

    This Steelers fan won't be. Not even remotely. IMO, if I found out they could have had Fitzpatrick but turned it down because of the first rd price, I'd be calling them effing morons.

    With all evidence available on how bad this team is drafting DB's, it's still amazing to me there are fans who doubt this trade.

    As the author of the original thread I take some offense to the use of the word “nonsense”. Stats are important but anyone with 2 eyes and a surface understating of football can see how much better the Steelers are with Fitz. And the argument behind the “nonsense” was that to evaluate whether Fitz was worth the trade, one must calculate the quality of the player the Steelers would have drafted had the trade not been made. That is the logical analysis behind evaluating the trade.
