Burns has been watching practice and generally seems to be in good spirits. Again, nothing to this point indicates it's a major injury.

Bryant's statistics in the games he has played so far in the NFL are right there with AJ Green, Dez Bryant and Calvin Johnson....he seems as dangerous as any of the elite receivers in the league. If Bryant is on the field, do we have two top tier #1 receivers?
Ray Fittipaldo
12:43
Pretty darn close if he's right, yes.

how has cockrell been? doesn't sound like hes been super great
Ray Fittipaldo
12:43
He's been OK.
Adam

How many more years of elite production (assuming no injuries) does AB have left before age catches up to him?
Ray Fittipaldo
12:44
He might be the rare exception to the rule that WRs peak at 27 or 28. He looks better this year than he did last year. He's always improving.

Will the Steeler's have what it takes to get past Brady and Pats ?  I know you hear this a lot.  But I have to ask !

If Will Gay and Coty Sensabaugh are playing I would think not. But it's early. The CBs might get healthier.

Last season when our WR corp decimated, it's supposed to be next-man-up... DHB couldn't even play ahead of scrubs like Coby H. Was it Tomlin or Colbert's fault?
Ray Fittipaldo
12:47
It doesn't matter whose fault it was. The facts is Hamilton was the No. 2 WR in the AFC title game. That's not good enough. So you can blame both of them if you want. For whatever reason, Coates, DHB and whoever else weren't ready to play a bigger role in that game. Both had injuries last year that were a part of it, but they suited up nonetheless.

Instead of Adams we should have drafted Lawson in rd 4.  We need young, talented OLB's.  Agree?
Ray Fittipaldo
12:48
I really liked Lawson, but apparently there were injury concerns with him. That's why he lasted until the fourth round.

Hi Ray, just finished reading your article about injuries to the secondary. Why is B. Allen less likely to play than Mike Hilton?
Ray Fittipaldo
12:49
Allen is an outside CB. Hilton is a slot CB. Golson and Sutton had been options in the slot but they've been injured
Thanks for all the great questions this week. We'll do it again next week.
