Fact or Fiction : The Steelers draft a FB this year to groom and learn from Kreider?

Fiction. I really hope they draft La'Ron McClain but he might be gone by our first 4th round pick and the FO might think that's too early. He's a good blocker and Kreider is starting to fade a bit.

Fact or Fiction: Colon wins either the RG or RT starting spot.

Fact. Colon will be the starting Rg for the Steelers week 1.

Simmons will be benched/injured/ or cut

Starks and the Steelers are close to a 4 year extension.

I knew that was going to be your answer. I know you're pretty high on Colon. Any word on if other guys are close to an extension?

Fact or Fiction: One of our current starters that's "penciled" in right now will lose his starting spot before the start of the season or within the first few games.

Fiction, they will use their cap money to sign draft picks and UDFA's then turn there attention toward contract extensions on Troy Polamalu and Alan Faneca. I expect no more than a 2nd tier TE and/or a WR, possibly a special team ace.

Fact or Fiction: Ben Roethlisberger will be comfortable and successful with more control over the offense in audiblizing and calling out protections....

Fact or Fiction: Anthony Smith will emerge and be better than Chris Hope.

Fact...I think Ben's in for a breakout season, where he's mention as a elite QB. He has all the weapons and now he needs to take the bull by the horns.

Fact....If Ant. Smith would of started the season he would of eclipse C. Hope best numbers.

Fact or Fiction:The Steelers will be a "Hybrid" defense at the beginning of the season.

Fiction, I dont see them running much 4-3 early on...of course my mind might change after the draft...

Fact or fiction:Bruce Arians will have much more success as the Steelers O Coordinator than he ever had with the Browns.

Fact....The talent level that he has with the Steelers is 10x's better than what he was dealt with in Stains land.


Fact or Ficiton: Arians joins the long line of good/great Offensive coordinators.

Fact. The overall talent level of the Steelers is so much greater than the Browns have been in a long time. We actually have a running game to take pressure off Ben. Too many weapons for him to fail miserably.

Fact or Fiction: Max Starks get an extension before the start of the season

Umm, he said extension, which means extending a current contract, and in case you didnt know, Max Starks is the LT for our beloved Steelers...

Wink

Sorry, didnt mean to sound cocky, but you had it coming. Twisted Evil

Fact or Fiction : With the Steelers going to more 4 WR sets on first and second down... Heath Miller have a break out year because he will be used more like a WR or flanker, such as other ProBowl TE's like a Gates or Crumpler.

Fact
. This is mainly due to the Steelers lack of decent depth at WR, and Heat Miller is a BEAST!

Fact Or Fiction: Larry Foote has a huge year and makes the Pro Bowl.
