I think Clement goes on the PS for a year or two to get adapted to this type of speed of the game. I wouldnt be suprised if McBean goes onto the PS as well and Paxon makes the club as a back up.

I hope that's true. I really wanted 'Booger' to sign with us a few weeks ago, but sadly it didn't happen. If you read the comments, one says:

"Booger's been on the backburner since he failed his physcial. There was/is a rumor out there that there's a Gentleman's agreement between him and Tomlin (his former coach) that the team will sign him if/when he can pass his physical. That should be some time this summer. He's a quality DT when healthy."

I still think he would be a great pick-up.

Who do you guys think would be a better pick-up, Grady Jackson or 'Booger' McFarland? I would personally prefer 'Booger', but Jackson is a mammoth against the run.

And do you think Shane Olivea would be a good pick-up for the O-line?

and is Fox a better pick than Humpal?

At least to start the season, which is what I was projecting. I haven't seen much of Fox or Humpal at this point, but I do not believe Humpal will make any sort of immediate impact.

That was the rumor. Booger actually Passed his physical. When the doctor was asked:

"Yeah, he passed it. But it'd be like passing a class with a D-."

I think Humpal will be Clint Kreidwaldt. The next ST's captain and a guy taht could contribute early.


Going into camp:

QB: Ben Roethlisberger -> Charlie Batch -> Dennis Dixon -> Jared Zabransky
RB: Willie Parker -> Rashard Mendenhall -> Mewelde Moore -> Najeh Davenport -> Gary Russell
FB: Carey Davis -> Billy Latsko
WR1: Hines Ward -> Nate Washington
WR2: Santonio Holmes -> Dallas Baker
WR3: Limas Sweed -> Willie Reid/Jeremy Bloom/Kevin Moore
TE: Heath Miller -> Matt Spaeth -> Jon Dekker -> Cody Boyd
LT: Marvel Smith -> Max Starks -> Trai Essex -> Tony Hills
LG: Chris Kemoeatu -> Sean Mahan
OC: Justin Hartwig -> Darnell Stapleton -> Doug Legursky
RG: Kendall Simmons -> Darnell Stapleton -> Matt Lentz -> Doug Legursky
RT: Willie Colon -> Max Starks -> Jason Capizzi

I'll do defense and my 53 later.
