    Kaboly is another wind bag I won't pay to read.

    Re: The Official 2018 Draft Day Thread!

    He's entitled to his opinion, but him making a comment like this is just a hot take IMO.

    He has no idea of how any of these picks will be used.

    He barely knows who the UDFAs are.

    He hasn't seen any of them practice or play at an NFL level yet.

    He doesn't know what other moves will be made.

    He has no idea how good Bostic will be at ILB with this defensive line playing in front of him and in this system.

    He seems to be pretending that Burnett wasn't signed or isn't an upgrade at safety.

    I get so pissed when I hear stuff like this from someone who should know better. He knows that the Steelers picked up Haden before the season started last year. He knows this, yet he still makes that statement.

    Mark Kaboly just dropped a few notches from what I felt about him before reading his comment. It shows a complete lack of understanding as a guy that covers football, or he is just become another "Mr. Hot Takes". Either way, he is discrediting himself.

    How about doing your job correctly and a little attention to detail there Mark Kobaldo.

    I don't know everything, but I do know this. There is a plan at work here. It involves position flexibility, versatility, tackling, football IQ, communication skills on and off the field, and starting to weed out certain types of behavior while trying to move on from players that don't want to be here or are inherent risks to the overall success of the team.

    How they put all the chess pieces together and what additional talent is acquired or released is to be determined.

    Sorry, the board keeps putting my response within your quote and won't allow me to correct it. I think it's a problem when tweets are in a quoted post.

    Having trouble quoting stuff. Great posts by the usual suspects. As to Kaboly, he can’t even spell. It is LUDICROUS unless he was intentionally name dropping the rapper in some complex Le’Veon Bell burn. I realize it was an autocorrect error, but if you are so amped to fire out a Tweet that you can’t even catch that, then it is pretty clear you are just a haaawwwttt taaaaake meathead at this point.

    Kaboly is in the job of drawing page hits - there are a few media types who would take a pay cut if they got a NFL job - Kaboly is not one of those few

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt

    Kaboly's right though. The Steelers aren't going to reinvent the concept of defense by having 5 safeties on the field
