I think we have our #2 and possibly a future #1

The catch at the 5, prior to AB's 2nd touchdown, was a tough catch.  He's a good, solid, Steeler.

Martavis looks lost.  I'm tired of hearing about his physical skills, his speed, his size...  He lacks effort and can't catch a tough ball.

He's Limas Sweed with an extra 3" of height.

I live in Austin.  I watched Limas play 4 years at UT where he was simply amazing.  I was ecstatic when he was drafted.  However, he proved the old adage that if you're merely an athlete, you can complete in college (e.g. Vince Young).  You have to know precise football to play in the NFL.

Vince didn't.  Martavis doesn't.

I think we have Marcanibus play out his rookie contract and see if he comes around. Being a 4th round pick we pretty much have him on the cheap.

I wouldn’t trash Bryant too much, yet. If we use more of the offense we did last night, he will blossom. Ben has a habit of staring down Bryant, especially on the long ball down the sideline. Last night we saw the Titan safety not being looked off on those deep sideline passes, the ones thrown to Juju as well.

That said, Juju is going to be the best possession WR we’ve had in the Burgh in decades. Let me rephrase, IS the best possession WR we’ve had in decades.

Ju-Ju os the star of the future today. What a pick! I think he will be the Steeler's ROY.

Remember here about 4-5 years ago all the flack directed at Collbert about his drafts? Tomlin not developing players? I’ll agree we didn’t get much out of our drafts cir 2007-2010, but considering  where we draft order wise, Collbert and crew have been doing a really good job. The last 4 drafts in particular have brought us a true Super Bowl contender.

JU JU is the next Hines Ward!  Bryant for some reason can't judge the deep ball this season and sucks at the wide receiver screen gets tackled to easily. He does seem to excel at crossing routes and slants where Ben can hit him in stride so if I was the OC he would run those constantly let Brown and Ju Ju take the deep routes.

I'm not ready to give up on Bryant just yet. I love the combo: 84, 19, 10, 26, and 81. Now get Haley out of the way.
