    Default Why?

    Why is Limas Sweed still on the roster? Granted he's on injured reserve but he has 7 catches for 69 yards in 3 years. I thought we traded him to Washington in the off season.

    No, he was not traded... Maybe you just wished that in your dreams, like me...

    ... Once he was hurt, he remained on our IR list...

    the bag of potato chips we traded Limas for turned out to be stale so the trade was voided...

    Call me crazy, but I still think Sweed can be a big contributor on this team. He's only a year older than Wallace. He's still pretty young and still probably has the most pure talent of any WR on the roster.

    OK.... You're crazy....

    ... Seriously though, I had lost all confidence after last season... I will use the "B" word... Yea, I think he's a bust... Maybe his head is messed-up, I dunno... But he just couldn't get the job done... For every decent grab he made, there were at least two drops that should'a been caught... Maybe he has the most "pure talent" on the roster, but he hasn't figured-out how to use it IMO...

    Well, if Sweed doesn't turn out to be a bust I think I'll be the only Steeler fan calling that one!

    It'll be interesting to see what the Steelers do with Sweed next year. It's too bad he was hurt this year. Is he actually out for the whole year. Is that what IR means?

    If he isn't, I'll bow at your feet and give you props...

    Yeah, IR - what NKY said.

    I'm guessing that they're going to give him yet one more shot next year. Just a hunch, though.

    Limas Sweed is going to come back from his injury with his new found ability to catch footballs and end up with a pro bowl career

    Can you imagine our receiving core if Sweed does pan out? And that is a big "IF"

    ... That was college.... Got any vid clips of his drops?....

    B-U-S-T..... Sorry, and I'll be more than happy to eat my words if I get proven wrong in the future (because that will only mean good things for the Steelers)... But until I see some sort of contribution to this squad, I'll stand by my statement.

    I'm holding out hope. Might be dangling from a spider thread, but I'd like to see them give the guy one more shot.
