Steelers Links

Here's a couple of interesting links I found around the internet:

USA today is putting together some "organizational reports" of the teams, and I thought the one on the Steelers was pretty well-informed.  There's not too much new info, but it's also not the over-generalized 1 paragraph summary of all the stereotypes about the Steelers (e.g. "This storied franchise blah blah Tomlin's Cover-2 scheme blah blah run the ball against 9 man fronts blah blah hole at RG without Faneca blah blah tall wide receiver") .  In the "new info" category, there's Tomlin saying, "we've got the makings of a rock-solid offensive line." 

The general link to all the teams is here.  The quality of the Steelers article makes me think that some of the others might be worth a read as well.  Also, they published "team reports" (not sure what the difference is), which are just more articles that tell you what you already know to get you pumped up about training camp. 

Lastly, we have a humor column.  Or maybe a homer column.  Anyway, it's a column that says FWP is the #4 RB in the league, ahead of Stephen Jackson, Frank Gore, Joseph Addai, and MB3 (who's ranked at 15 for some reason).  We can argue about some of those names, but we should be able to agree that Parker is not the complete player Jackson is.  This one's for kwoog: Jamal Lewis is ranked #21.  See, irrefutable evidence that Parker is waaaaay better.  Also, LenDale "Fats" White is ranked #24 despite averaging 3.7 yards and having 5 fumbles last year.  I mean, 24 is 24, but Chester Taylor?  Selvin Young?  Justin Fargas?  Hell, Ron Dayne had a better year.  It's like they got the rushing totals for the year and moved down a few players they didn't like. 

Anyway, hope you enjoy.
