Steeler Nation rejoice!

There is a fullback on the roster! Of course everybody here remembers Bruce Arians' rant last year about not having a fullback on the roster. He even promised they're would never be one. Well, now, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, there is one. In a very interesting article ( http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10122/1054921-66.stm ) Ed Bouchette describes the process that led Mike Tomlin to pick up Demetrius Taylor as a fullback.

The Virginia Tech defensive tackle has a high school running back background and was spotted by Tomlin who saw the kind of athlete he is looking for at the position. Coach Tomlin describes Taylor as a quick-twitch, explosive guy who moves like a prototypical fullback. Could this be this year's Cinderella camp story?

I know a few regulars here who will be thrilled if it is because that could mean the return of power football in Steeler Country...
