  • 2008-2009 Season

    Now that the majority of the important off-season activities are done, lets focus on the upcoming season. For starters, what do you think the depth chart after the cut will be?

    I think:

    QB: Ben Roethlisberger - Charlie Batch - Dennis Dixon
    HB: Willie Parker - Rashard Mendenhall - Gary Russell - Mewelde Moore
    FB: Carey Davis
    LT: Marvel Smith - Trai Essex - Tony Hills
    LG: Chris Kemoeatu - Sean Mahan
    C: Justin Hartwig - Darnell Stapleton - Sean Mahan - Greg Warren
    RG: Kendall Simmons - Sean Mahan
    RT: Willie Colon - Max Starks - Jason Capizzi
    TE: Heath Miller - Matt Spaeth
    WR: Hines Ward - Limas Sweed - Dallas Baker
    WR: Santonio Holmes - Nate Washington

    LE: Aaron Smith - Ryan McBean - Kyle Clement
    DT: Casey Hampton - Chris Hoke - Kyle Clement
    RE: Brett Keisel - Travis Kirschke - Kyle Clement
    LOLB: LaMarr Woodley - Arnold Harrison
    MLB: James Farrior - Keyaron Fox - Mike Humpal
    MLB: Lawrence Timmons - Larry Foote
    ROLB: James Harrison - Bruce Davis
    LCB: Ike Taylor - William ***
    SS: Troy Polamalu - Ryan Mundy
    FS: Ryan Clark - Anthony Smith
    RCB: Deshea Townsend - Bryant McFadden

    K: Jeff Reed
    P: Daniel Sepulveda
    KR/PR: Mewelde Moore - Nate Washington - Santonio Holmes
    LS: Greg Warren

      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?

                I'd put Eason over Paxson.

                    do you think Foote will be able to hold off Timmons?
                    and is Fox a better pick than Humpal?
                    ...The Pittsburgh Steelers represent a way of life...

                      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.
