I'm sort of weird, and though I don't do it as much anymore, I typically save articles of specific NFL draft classes as they are being written. For instance, I'll use stuff from 2012 drafts that has been written about 2013 prospects (even though this season, I don't have much in regards to 2012 rankings), and I'll start saving 2013 draft stuff 3 hours after 2012 draft is done.

I just looked at some stuff from May, and it's crazy to see how some guys have fell from the good graces. Also, what's unbelievable to see, Lotulelei, Mingo, Montgomery, and Jarvis Jones really haven't moved around much. Lotulelelei was a top 5 in May and he's a top 5 now.

And be ready for some Alabama ****...DJ Fluker, their OT...his full name? Danny Lee Jesus Fluker.

Hi guys,

I just started working down in the McMurray/Southpointe area. I still live in Oakland from undergrad/grad school. Normally I take 376W to 79S in the mornings, but then from where I work I just hop on 19N, go through the Liberty Tunnel, Liberty Bridge, and get on Bigelow after I go over the bridge on my way home.

How rough will traffic on game nights be for me if I continue taking 19N home at the end of the day (I hit the tunnel/bridge at about 5:30)? I got stuck in a fair amount of traffic the night of the scrimmage, but I was off early the night of the home opener last week. Just looking for some input as to whether I should change up my commute on home game nights.

Thanks.

Any Pittsburgh lawyers in the thread?

I have a few questions concerning Pitt Law and the legal market in Pittsburgh.

I would post that in the OT thread.

Steelers hire 2 new coaches.

Like Lost in Crofton posted, Jack Bicknell Jr. is the new offensive line coach.

The Steelers hired Pittsburgh native Danny Smith to be the special teams coordinator. He was the Washington Redskins special team coordinator

I used to commute to an internship in Southpointe from the South Side. Traffic is going to be ****** everywhere at that time of the hour. Coming from Southpointe, you won't have terrible traffic on 19 until you hit South Hills Village and from then it's bumper to bumper until you're into the city. I'd take 376-79.

Anyone see the guy behind the Te'o fake girlfriend hoax? Kind of odd to say you're romantically attracted to someone, then you decide to "kill" his "girlfriend" around the same time Te'o's grandmother dies. Messed up.

That guy came out and pretty much said on national TV that he was gay. And this wasn't like a "I'm gay, I always have been gay, and everyone knows it." This was a, "I'm not real sure if I am or not, I may be, and this is why I act the way I do." Pretty ballsy to do that on national TV, IMO.

But if he felt that way about Te'o, why would he kill off the fake girlfriend right after Te'o's grandmother died? That's utterly cruel. Part of me wonders if this guy is just a troll.

Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington is non-committal about the likelihood of finalizing a deal with Francisco Liriano before the start of spring training, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “The process continues,” Huntington said. “We have ongoing conversations. I'm not an oddsmaker, so I don't know if it is likely or unlikely that we will add another pitcher.”

Really need to get this finalized. I wonder what's up with his right arm that it is taking so long. That whole quote is weird though.

It was revealed a couple of weeks ago he has a broken humerus. It's in the link you posted; the trib article it cites.

I was just on Walters football mock draft page and somehow it has the OLB from Georgia Jarvis Jones slipping to the Steelers at 17th. That is a guy that I see as a top 5 pick in a lot of mocks. I would love for that to be correct.

Kevin Greene was the bigger snub.

I like him as a player, but I've concerns regarding his long term health due to his spinal stenosis diagnosis, which is probably why he's all over the place in various mocks.

This is the same Ravens team that lost to Charlie Batch, and couldn't score a offensive TD against the Steelers the first time around.
