Senior Bowl Game Thread

I'm kinda joking with the headline ... but I'm kinda serious too. In case you don't have a life -- and let's be honest, if you're reading this, you probably don't -- the Senior Bowl is today at 3 PM EST on the NFL Network.

Consider this your first chance to see (insert name of whomever you want the Steelers to draft ... and is a senior ... and is on the Senior Bowl roster). Personally, I'll be watching for Patrick Willis and Levi Brown ... and maybe JaMarcus Nelson. (Yeah, I don't know who that is either.)

Also, the Steelers hired the new Kevin Spencer. He goes by Bob Ligashesky, and he was the Rams special teams coach the past two seasons. That's the same Rams team that finished worse than Pittsburgh in special teams DVOA. In case you forgot, the Steelers were 30th. Good news, though: the Rams finished 31st in 2005 too. Sweet.
