Yeah, Steelers definitely should have drafted Eifert instead of JJ (as many fans wanted) to be the heir apparent to Heath.  Big mistake. 

Comment 26 Aug 2016

I just looked at that entire first round from 2013.  WOOOFFFF!!!  Might have been the worst first round on record. 

Comment 26 Aug 2016

Jarvis Jones stinks as well.  I wouldn't give the Steelers credit on that pick at all.  Bell is a different story...great player, huge knucklehead. 

Comment 19 Aug 2016

He admits that Heyward-Bey is probably faster than him, but apparently the race was the culmination of Tomlin (probably tongue in cheek) saying there are 10 guys on the Steelers that are faster than Ryan.  Ryan challenged Tomlin to pick 3 players to race him.  And he beat Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Sammie Coates.

Not disputing that statement, but I would also put more stock into the NFL combine, which most of the players being listed have gone through, than a high school combine.  Ryan Shazier >>>>>> Mike Mitchell as an athlete any day of the week and twice on sundays.

He used to run by Santonio Holmes like he was running in sand.  A 4.4 guy made to look pedestrian.  Insane speed. 

Comment 19 Aug 2016

Ginn, Galloway, and this guy are at the top of my list.  Brax and TP obviously get votes with Michael Wiley, Shawn Springs, Chris Gamble, Beanie Wells (size and speed off the charts) and Zeke.  A lot of names that can be on this list.  I just loved TG and he did things at OSU catching the ball that were amazing. 

Comment 19 Aug 2016

Ehhh...that's a big 'if' considering his bowl record barely eclipsed his Michigan record.  His teams would always peak early and fade late in the season, as opposed to getting progressively better like the last 2 coaching mainstays. 

Comment 19 Aug 2016

I'm not anti-Andy Geiger...he may have held onto Coop a little too long, but he didn't hire him.  He also was trying to fix the basketball team with Obrien, who did have success with his international squads (tongue in cheek).   He also hired Matta and Tressel,   Smith gets a lot of credit for what Geiger actually started...

My biggest issue with Geiger is VCA.  Swing and a miss. 

Comment 19 Aug 2016

Those numbers are why I cannot stand the Tress v. Meyer posts/arguments on this board...the OSU fanbase has been spoiled rotten since 2001.  Many of us remember and lived the Cooper regime and still have the scars. 

Name another school that can replace a HOF coach with another future HOF coach.  We are blessed. 

Comment 19 Aug 2016

Well, I guess it was better towards the latter decade with OB.  But yeah, Geiger shouldn't be exempt from blame. 

His head butting with Jim Brown did no one favors in 2002.  Although I put a lot of that on Jim Brown and his comments.
