Well End of Line, we might get John Simon, because if the Steelers keep playing like this, they will have a 1st round pick high enough to pick him.

It really hurts that we don't have clark. no one on our team can make open field tackles like him and that would free up polumalu to make plays. mundy just doesn't cut it. of course it wouldn't fix everything

Every single time our offense does exactly what they need, our defense just gives it away. And it's not even making them work for it.

That failed 2 points conversion is going to cost us if we lose.

Simon is most likely a 2-3 rounder.

I think the 2 field goals that should have been touchdowns will cost us even more, but that missed conversion is icing on the cake. It should be 28-21 Steelers, but we can't get 6 when we're in the red zone, and it at least should be 21-20 Broncos but we decided to and couldn't covert a 2-point conversion.

we can't even stop runs now. The sad part is, as someone above said its largely because we are missing Clark. Troy is an average player when he's forced to play like a real safety. We are a below average defense when Troy is an average player.

Oh, I saw a mock draft putting him in the 1st round, I know it's just a mock draft but he's a beast. I know you don't need to know that because you are an Ohio State fan but I could see him being a 1st rounder.

I know how incredible he is, most NFL scouts probably don't know where to put him in the NFL. Not big enough for DT, small for a DE, but he makes it up for effort and heart. I truly believe he'd be Harrison's perfect replacement.

I'd also like for them to get Stoneburner later in the draft.

I would rather have Mike Martin than John Simon. IMO because i'm biased.

Martin is a NT. Simon is an all around D.

Didn't catch your biased part.
