Our Big Top 25 Prospects Omission
The Pittsburgh Steelers blog Behind the Steel Curtain points out here that we left Antonio Brown off the Top 25 Prospects list. I'm just dumbfounded. Antonio Brown had only three games started last year? Actually, yes, apparently Antonio Brown had only three games started because the Steelers wanted to give Hines Ward a nice veteran pat on the back. I don't know if we want to change rules next year so that a player like Brown who was effectively the starter and made the freakin' Pro Bowl doesn't qualify, but under the current rules he qualifies and we just blew it. If we're going to count a guy like Doug Baldwin with 51 catches, we have to count a guy like Brown with 69. No disrespect meant to Doug Baldwin, but Antonio Brown absolutely, positively should have been the No. 1 prospect based on the current rules of the list. My apologies to Steelers fans.
