BTSC Week in Review: Lockout on Hold Edition

Like I do every Sunday night, here's your look back at the articles published on Behind the Steel Curtain this past week.

* It was a pleasure to hear from maryrose for the first time this offseason, a well-written and well-researched piece about how the Steelers should emulate Bill Walsh's heavy investment in the cornerback position back in the spring of 1981.

* Big Jay filed his second complete seven round Mock Draft for us this Saturday -- Rounds 1-3 .... Rounds 4-7. His picks may have not been popular, but there's no denying the quality and amount of work that went into it.

* I examined the Steelers recent history of using their first round draft picks on underclassmen and looked at some of the juniors in this year's draft that the Steelers could potentially target.

* Earlier Sunday, two more games were finished in our 'A Tale of Two Teams' 2010 season in review series. I wrote about Game 4 against the Baltimore Ravens, the Steelers first loss of the season. Rebecca Rollett completed a much more thorough and interesting overview of Game 5, the Steelers convincing win over the Cleveland Browns in Ben Roethlisberger's '10 debut.

* The big news of the week was the extension of the CBA by another week as negotiations can continue between the owners and the NFLPA. Ever since Tuesday's ruling by Judge David Doty concerning TV revenues in the event of a lockout, the owners have clearly been a lot more interested in getting serious about bargaining frequently, and in better faith.

* John Stephens with another great stats post, his Part 2 look at the best offenses in 2010.

* The Steelers tendered restricted free agent Willie Colon last week, but several days after the fact, I wrote that it's highly unlikely that Colon will be a restricted free agent under the terms of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

* Final Combine results are in.  Three-Cone, 20-Yard Shuttle and 60-yard Shuttle ..... 40-yard Dash, Bench Press, Vertical Jump and Broad Jump.
