silent move in talent level
but I think a huge move as in this team has no direction and are scared to move on
I understand cheap already know the system hoorahh , that's bogus , the team and front office are afraid to move on
system is so confusing it takes players 10 yrs to grasp it but yet still can't create turnovers ..
same thing with Sylvester , and I was a huge Sylvester fan but he's gone you were done with him and Terrance Garvin looked good in preseason why not give him a shot?
ok my rant is over

Also, out of boredom right now, I did some revisionist stuff and re-drafted from 2009 onwards (after winning the Superbowl) with the same picks. Basically players that were available with those picks. These are the ideal drafts, IMO:
1. RB LeSean McCoy (taken 53, we took Ziggy Hood at 32)
3. CB Lardarius Webb (taken 88, we took Kraig Urbik at 79)
3. WR Mike Wallace (YAY!)
3. DT Henry Melton (taken 105, we took Keenan Lewis at 96)
5. TE Brandon Myers (taken 202, we took Joe Burnett at 168)
5. WR Julian Edelman (taken 232, we took Frank Summers at 169)
6. LB Danell Ellerbe (UDFA, we took Ra'Shon Harris at 205)
7. OL Alex Boone (UDFA we took A.Q. Shipley at 226)
7. RB Arian Foster (UDFA, we took David Johnson at 241)
1. WR Dez Bryant (taken 24, we picked Maurkice Pouncey at 18)
2. OT Jared Veldheer (taken 69, we picked Jason Worilds at 52)
3. LB Navorro Bowman (taken 91, we took Emmanuel Sanders at 82)
4. S Kam Chancellor (taken 133, we took Thaddeus Gibson 116)
5. DE Arthur Jones (taken 157, we took Chris Scott at 151)
5. CB Sam Shields (UDFA, we took Crezdon Butler at 164)
5. WR Victor Cruz (UDFA, we took Stevenson Sylvester at 166)
6. RB Joique Bell (UDFA, we took Jonathan Dwyer at 188)
6. WR Antonio Brown (YAY!)
7. C Phil Costa (UDFA, we took Doug Worthington at 242)
1. WR Randall Cobb (taken 64, we took Cameron Heyward 31)
2. DE/OLB Justin Houston (taken 70, we took Marcus Gilbert 63)
3. TE Julius Thomas (or Jordan Cameron) (taken 129, we took Curtis Brown 95)
4. CB Richard Sherman (taken 154, we took Cortez Allen 128)
5. FB/TE Charles Clay (taken 174, we took Chris Carter 162)
6. FB Henry Hynoski (UDFA, we took Keith Williams 196)
7. LB Mark Herzlich (UDFA, we took Baron Batch 232)
1. OG David DeCastro (I still have faith he'll be very good)
2. QB Russell Wilson (taken 75, we took Mike Adams 56)
3. WR T.Y. Hilton (taken 92, we took Sean Spence 86)
4. K Blair Walsh (taken 175, we took Alameda Ta'Amu 109)

7. Kelvin Beachum (YAY!)
1. OLB Landry Jones
2. RB Le'Veon Bell

Quick mock draft:
1) Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
-With 3 WRs projected to leave, the Steelers need weapons for Ben. What better way to do it than the best WR in the draft? Watkins has good hands, good size and great speed to make him the absolute playmaker for this team. He isn't as fast as Wallace, but he's plenty fast in his own right. A three wide set of Watkins and Wheaton on the outside with Brown in the slot can make this offense very dynamic. I still believe we have a small window and I hope that we can capitalize it with this draft.
2) Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE Washington
-Yes the Steelers are trying to keep clean, but his talent should warrent consideration. Heath isn't going to play forever and ASJ will provide a huge boost to our offense. A huge catch radius and great athleticism, he'll be a playmaker for years to come. I can see him being on our board as long as he stays out of trouble.
3) Jack Mewhort OT Ohio State
-The Steelers OL is pretty bad, but I like a lot of the players and like their potential. That said, it'll be foolish to not try and improve. In comes Mewhort. I don't know too much about him, but he has long arms and a great frame. He played for Urban Meyer so he's fairly athletic as well. With his versatility, he can play either LT or G for the Steelers.
4a) Demarcus Lawrence OLB Boise State
-I'll have to dig into his character more, but the kid can flat out get after the quarterback. We'll be losing Chris Carter and Worilds in the offseason, so we'll need guys who can get after the quarterback. With his suspensions, he'll be questioned during interviews, but I don't think his character is alarming.
4b) EJ Gaines CB Missouri
-Not a big guy, but he's fluid in coverage and puts his hands on a lot of footballs(29 career PBUs, 6 INT). He's also very scrappy and will return kicks. We need to find another starter CB when Ike leaves sooner than later. Gaines will be brought into the fold and developed.
5) Antonio Andrews RB Western Kentucky
-Fumbling is his problem, but that's easily corrected. He has the size and speed to handle a workload if Bell were to go down again.
6a) Will Clarke DE West Virginia
-Not also techically sound, but he's got a lot of size and potential to be a solid player down the line. I could see him going the similar route as Nick Williams.
6b) Zach Kerr NT Deleware
-We don't have much behind McClendon and we could use the young depth.
7a) Weston Richburg C/G Colorado State
-Could go much higher, but interior guys don't go very high unless you're elite. I think he's going to be a solid depth guy along the interior.
7b) Kirby Van Der Kamp P Iowa State
-Zoltan Mesko hasn't been terrible, but he hasn't been great either. Kamp will provide competition at the position.
Jordan Hall RB Ohio State
Corey Pitt Brown S Ohio State
Dorian Bell LB Duquesne
CJ Brown QB Maryland
Darwin Cook S West Virginia
BJ Stevens OLB Cal U
Bernard Reedy WR Toledo
Dayonne Nunley CB Miami OH
