    Green was a top 5 center prospect to the Steelers, that's all that matters. I think the Steelers liked Green over the other center's because of his athleticism and his ability to move, which will fit their new offensive scheme.

    I haven't seen anybody say that, you and your twin SDOT are the kings of hyperbole.

    We are not replacing two HOF'ers at least not the way pouncey and DD played last year. Dotson was very highly rated over 300 snaps and should of held the job when Feiler came back. Turner might turn out to be better than expected or not and the guy from Chicago could help as well. BJ will be ok until Green is ready. I think there is enough in the middle its the tackles I worry about.

    Yet you keep whining about Biadasz, who went even later.

    I don't disagree with you regarding Biadasz. I thought it was a mistake to pass on him twice in the fourth round. I realize now they were right to grab Dotson, who I think is a better player, but they should have used both of those fourth-rounders on the line. That said, if he can be competent as a rookie, I believe Green can do the same.

    Dotson isn't the pick in question. It's taking a Maryland scatback over a future center. Then using your 1st round pick in the next draft on a RB. The difference is Biadasz would have came in and had a year behind Pouncey. Then started this year instead of throwing a rookie doing a position change to the fire. It's horrible asset management and total lack of preparation/foresight for the future. Everything you expect from a Mike Tomlin team. I mean I was calling this a year before it happened. How can nobody within the Steelers organization see any of this? Pouncey had been terrible leading into last year. Then was rated the worst center in the league. It's not like this just popped up out of nowhere.

    This is a rational post. It’s kind of unsettling….

    That is part of the reason I think they still might be better with Finney and then Green. They are replacing a center who was living off his reputation and playing very poorly the last couple of seasons.

    For once, I agree with you. I've agreed with you all along regarding Biadasz. Their fourth-round picks should have been Dotson and Biadasz, though I'm not sure the latter is such a great player. I think Green has a higher upside.

    They need to draft a center or sign a free agent and move him to guard period.

    If you say enough dumb **** eventually you’re bound to be right about something. Then it’s time to gloat.

    Yea saying a 3rd round center who barely played the position in College shouldn’t be starting was a real dumb take. Good lord man. How is he looking about now mr Steeler

    Team deserves all the criticism it is getting right now. Haven’t done well drafting or building a team recently ie no QB a terrible offensive line no depth anywhere. Hanging on to a stale head coach about 4 years too long. And now we get to watch a complete **** show week after week. Tie the Lions barely beat the Bears and Hawks? This is a bad product sorry to say.

    None of that matters. You bitching to other fans on a message board changes nothing with the Steelers.

    Right... but can't we say all that without resurrecting "random guess" threads?

    Well what’s the point of a message board Glenn? To chew bubble gum and paint pictures of unicorns together? Maybe if you were a Pats fan recently that would be the case. When a team does well and is a contender the threads are much different than when they suck and are a pretender. That’s just the reality of it. Of course humans are all wired different and some are more positive by nature glass half full types and some are not. But still the product ultimately determines the direction most of this stuff goes in.
