I just have a feeling about this guy...I think Nate will be gone and he will be our new # 3.

I'm looking for BB to go to Holmes/Miller much more, Ward less (wrt to age, so less pt), and with Nate going?...Sweed will get some time, it'll be up to the head on his shoulders whether he can handle it or not.  He's got the physical side of things going for him, but the mental side is non-exis

He is saying that he thinks Ben is going to throw to Heat and Tone more next year, because he thinks Hines will play less downs due to his age.

Personally, I'm not sure Sweed can step up. I hope he can. But not sure he is capable of it. He had more penalties and drops than catches last year. The 3rd WR plays 70-80% of the snaps in BA's offense. Anyone really think Sweed is ready to be a de facto starter? I hope Nate resings. Let Sweed learn the ropes a little more, and frankly, even with his drops, Nate is a contributer. Definitely not ready to write him off or send him to 'Zo land, but he needs to play better. After what I have seen of Sweed, I'm a little bummed Willie Reid couldn't stick.

WTF? I believe he will score exactly one touchdown.  I am totally disenfranchised by this poll.  I thought the Bush years were over.

Well according to Colbert, they're going to start offering contracts to some FAs this week.  So we'll see what the plan is with Sweed.  I feel Washington's re-signing is a must at this point.  Keep grooming Limas for the next year or two until he's really needed when Hines retires.

Voted 26-40 catches 2-4 TD's just to hedge a little, dont really see an over emphasis in the passing game in 09 that warrants any more than that. 

heck, Miller barely beat out those numbers last year by only 8 catches

The man can get past the db's just has to work on the mental aspect of the game. If Ward mentors him he will be a good #3 and become a #2. It was never aquestion in college about his hands and big play ability, just if he was mentally in the game at all times. He's blown two wide open sure td's but those db's weren't anywhere near him to make any type of play if he had caught them. I will also say this hopefully he gets together with Ben in the offseason, much like Baker did last year and both of them(Baker and Sweed) become active wideouts next season.

isn't it amazing the difference between the pros and college?   sweed was a stud at texas (sans wrist) and he's NOT GOOD in the steelers' scheme at the moment....all emotional because i've just discovered Friday Night Lights as a TV show, damn i wish the setting was Pitt instead of Texas....anyway, nate is much more suited to our 3rd because he's had the experience.  People might argure Sweed hasn't had the chance but that same thought was with Moore, right?   what did he do with his chance?  we're talking earlier of replacing FWP with him.. are we talking sweed over Ward?  didn't think so...

Isn't that just another WB type show, e.g. Gilmore Girls, with a football them?  Thought the movie was decent.  But critics seem to love the show and I don't see what separates it.  Granted, have only seen a couple of episodes.

that's what I thought as well but after watching it, it's really good.  Plus, i guess a lot of it is improvised around a framework script but obviously not as funny as Curb Your Enthusiasm but i like it....go steelers!  ha

Improvised, that's interesting.  Maybe it's worth another shot, as if I really need to seek out more TV to watch.  I'm about 10 episodes behind on Dr. Who.

I'm in the middle with everyone else. Guys like him take time to develop, and I don't think he'll see enough of the field to get more than two or three catches per game. Hope I'm wrong. I do, however, belive that he will eventually be the leading receiver on the team. He needs to learn to concentrate while he's running, how to get off the line, and he needs about 10lbs. of muscle, and I see him as a Keyshawn Johnson type. Just not next year.

Sweed is very similar to Plex. They did nothing in thier rookie years except make stupid mistakes. It takes most WRs a few years to develop. I expect to see a big jump for him next year. He seems to be wide open a lot. Now all he has to do is hang onto the ball and quit faking injuries when he f's up.

I am going to say 30-40 catches and 4 tds. This also depends on if the Steeler keep Washington.
