Only thing I worry about is we sucked at generating turnovers last year.

How can we change that this year?

Defenses are about turnovers nowadays, for the most part.

Good first step is being within 10 yards the ball.

Seriously. Steelers D has a major problem with getting CB that can cover and giving them assignments to man up on wide outs.

I’m very happy with this signing it just because it means they don’t draft a CB in R1 now. Or R2. Hopefully not R3 either. They should just farm out the entire defense backfield. Would make me feel better

No chance of happening, and it's not the best fit, but I love Golden Tate's game. Him and Juju on the field? That's two tough SOBs. Add a speedy deep threat to stretch the field along with that and we'd have a damn good group.

But this is a great draft for WRs, deep too. We can get a player in the mid rounds who can make an immediate impact.


Golden Tate did tweet about the Steelers, so there may be some interest from him at least

4 INTs is more than any CB on our team right?


Not to worry - he will have 0-1 in our bend and eventually break time wasting defense

Would have liked Tyrell. I want them to sign an adequate receiver so they can focus on defense in the early part of the draft.

Hopefully the Raiders release Jordy Nelson. That's one FA WR I'd like to see in the black and gold.

Truthfully, our CBs were good and average last two years. Safety and ILB coverage?

I guess the it at least a start and better than what we has opposite Haden last year. Nelson is an upgrade in that part. I still think the steelers need to bring in a Wr if possible.
