All I know is this... Edmunds didn't have a garbage season especially for a rook thrown in early and supposedly taken anywhere from 2-5 rounds early according to some of us know it alls around here. The argued other player had a fine season. It really could've been the same if picks were reversed and him here and edmunds in Indy. Hell Mitchell turned in a pretty good season in Indy after being ran out of here based on obvious proof of his production down falls, be them injury induced or scheme (those arguements were made ad nauseum once upon a yesterday as well). A good arguement was made by I can't remember whom that said knowing how things work around here, Leonard may have never cracked the lineup and been a special teamer and that's a dead on shot at a speculative guess being the Steelers ornery ways of keeping on keeping on with guys who aren't gonna hack it in the end game. Matakevich for example could have very well got a hat over the young buck just because that's how things turn up around here at times. Maybe Indy has a better approach/scheme to get more out of folks and or to put them in positions of advantage better than we do? Week in vs week out we applaud/lambaste other teams schemes, players, adjustments, and then do the same for our own week to week... Never aligns perfectly but always ends in a scapegoat. Had Burnett stayed healthy we may have never saw edmunds to begin with and people would have lost their **** over that even if it was to end up productively awesome... "We wasted a #1 pick that never saw the field etc etc". I thought edmunds did well for a rook and expect him to grow quite a bit in year 2 and be very productive however, I also reserve the right to expect him to regress because that's what I've seen on this team the last few years secondary wise particularly. Hope for the best but don't get miffed if it trends down I guess. Teams too Jekyll and Hyde for a reason position by position and call after call. Many weird ways of mysticism afoot here folks but I'm betting on a pretty damn good season coming up.
