Own Marecic! Ever since SI did a big article on this guy I've wanted him on the Steelers. They need a fullback, and he seems like a good one.

Marecic won the Paul Horning Award for most versatile player. He played and started at FB, LB and Special teams. Very seldom did he leave the field. Now that is durable. I doubt he will make the team as a LB but FB is a good fit.

The Steelers need a full back and he would be a good fit to a team with a tough reputation.

One big problem....BA doesn't like using a traditional fullback.

That agitates me. A good fullback can be a deadly asset that most teams don't use. If you can get a fullback that can catch, then he could bail the qb out of a blitz, and Ben could use that.

Hey, I agree with you! But as long as BA's the OC, the Steelers will be in the don't use category.

I think the Steelers should draft a QB just in case Big Ben gets caught assaulting a woman in the mens room of a popular night spot.

Hey, that's almost funny. I see what you did there. You tried bring clever. You thought that you'd make a little joke about sexual assault. Huh. What part of that is funny to you--the part about sexual assault, or the part where you insinuate Ben Roethlisberger committed a crime? Well, can I play too?I think the Patriots ought to hire an assistant head coach just in case Bill Belichick decides to try cheating his way to another shot at a championship.Hey, you're right, this IS fun!

hahahahahahahahahaha! But seriously, it happened a year ago, people need to find someone else to make fun of now besides Ben.

Why would a self-proclaimed Pats fan continue to rip Roethlisberger about this act of stupidity instead of tearing into Mark Sanchez and his high school sweetheart? I thought the Jets and Pats are mortal rivals. I thought that any REAL Patriots fan would be beating this drum endlessly.

If there were regular Jets fans on the message boards, that were associated with Dawn, he probably would. That's my theory, anyway.
