Some folks, including Penso, liked this kid.  Seems he was dinged up a good bit in Philly, but might be an interesting option in 2008.  Early warning to Willie Reid?  Or was that the Rossum deal?

He played at Colorado, and was a little lightning rod of a special teams player.

This guy is a stud.

He's probably even better at mogul skiing than he is at football, but I'm pumped about giving him at look on the field.

Usually, I'm very content with myself as a person, and would rarely accept the opportunity to be someone else.  But I'd have to think twice about Jeremy Bloom- that guy probably gets ass like it's going out of style.

Steelers add a mascot and fashion model in the same season.

Please otis.  Post the pics of your miniature pink helmet in the appropriate forum.

I don't remember ever advocating Bloom, but then, that draft was before the midget hooker mugging...

I seem to recall Bloom going higher than he should have, and some lingering doubts about whether he was serious about the NFL, or was going to return to mogul skiing.

So, I was fine with us not drafting him where he ended up going, but I'm also pretty damn happy that we just signed him to the PS.  That to me, is a low-risk, potential high-reward signing.

He can't be worse than Alan-I-May-Not-Fumble-On-Returns-But-Don't-Expect-Me-To-Do-Much-Else-Oh-And-I-...
...Also-Let-A-Ridiculous-Amount-of-Punts-Drop-When-They-Should-Be-Caught-Rossum.

I think I'm gay for Jeremy Bloom.

Allen Rossum was Ricardo Colclough's warning. Jeremy Bloom is Willie Reid's warning.

Sir, you most certainly are.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.  And you're banned.

Ditto.  Willie Reid = Alvis Whitted.

Wasn't Bloom cut by the Eagles?

Who's on their WR depth chart again?

At this point, I'd put Ward back there and have him fair catch everything.

In retropsect, though, Bloom may come in handy for returns when there are moguls on the field.  HA! The Steelers finally one-upped the Pastriots.

Your my hero. Nice to see fair weather fans back on the bandwagon.......

Anyways he wont even be on the active roster. I know he's torn up by injury but what about Troy returning punts? I wonder if he has ever tried it. Not saying he does it this year but maybe in the future

If you saw what happened to Ed Reed (who actually is effective on KR/PR) this year on returns, including his intimate meeting with Silverback, it might not be much of a return on investment.  Reed might not make it to 30 doing triple duty like that.  IIRC, Kenny Easley also returned punts as well.  That all-world safetry evenually blew out an ankle and lost a kidney to boot.  BTW, what would make TP an ace PR/KR?  His talent is anticipation and short closing speed, not elusiveness.  

NFL does stand for Not For Long.  Troy already has enough wear and concussions without screwing around on special teams.  Put Ike back on ST's if you want some speed back there.

Ikes hands though. He has trouble catching INT's thrown inbetween his numbers. They used a higher round pick on a punter. They need to do the same with a return specialist...... Of course they did that kinda already but they need to keep trying.

I think he may be decent because when he has the ball he runs like a Samoan maniac.  He has decent speed and good size. Just an idea but probably not a good 1

Dudes would run by him, then grab his hair.

He'd be bald in a few weeks.
