    He's only made over 70 tackles one time in his career, he's terrible in coverage, he has dogs that kill anything that moves, he's a jerk, he talks way more than Smoot and backs up his talk even less IMO, I very strongly dislike Joey Porter and pray to god he does not end up a Viking.
    that opinion will need some fact to back it. If he joined our team he'd instantly be the best LB we've got. We won't get him though. Cause too much trouble w/ Chilli
    He's too much of a "Look at me" type of player.

    He wouldn't be our best linebacker, not by a longshot. I'm not that high on Leber, but I think he's a better LB than Porter. I don't want a guy who averages less than 65 tackles per year, his style of play would hurt us more than it could help. The only reason he has had any success in his NFL career is because he has the luxury of playing next to James Farrior and Larry Foote, which allowed him to blitz all the time. Just about any linebacker in the NFL could get 10 sacks a year if they blitz the QB on 80% of plays.

    Anyone who thinks certain receivers do not fit our KAO, but thinks Joey Porter would be a great fit on our defense is an idiot. He's horrible in coverage, a poor tackler (unless you consider blindsiding a QB at full speed to be good tackling), and after listening to him flap his gums for years I don't think he has the mental capacity to understand anything but "hit man with ball."

    He is not a talented linebacker, and I honestly believe he wouldn't start on a team that does not run the 3-4 defense."ejmat" wrote:

    As a person that has watched almost every Steeler game the past 2 years, I disagree with you.
    You can't go by stats alone.
    Just because he doesn't make a tackle doesn't mean he didn't have something to di with it.

    Also as a person who has watched almost every Steeler game over the past 2 years(3 or 4 actually), my friend who has the Sunday Ticket's mom is a huge Steeler fan, so I watch those games when they're on, unless the viking are on, then I find another TV.

    They keep track of who's in on every tackle, if it's a gang tackle made by 2-3 guys they get assisted tackles, and if you go to NFL.com you can see that they have "Total, Tkl, Ast" The total is obviously TKL+AST, and he had one season where he had 88 total, but besides that year he's never broken 70. IMO he is one of the most over rated players in the NFL, and I really would not like to see him in purple, or anywhere at all for that matter.
    Okay llet me put it this way.
    Your name does not have to show up on a stat (whether it be tackle or assist) to have an effect on a play.
    You do not get credit for causing a play to go the other way.
    You don't get credit for forcing a broken play.
    Trust me, Porter does more than his tackles.
    Yes he is better than any LBer on the team now.
    Every Steeler fan I know love the guy.
    I watched the games at a bar that happens to be a "Steeler" bar in Tucson Arizona.
    My mother is also a Steeler fan.
    It doesn't mean they know or see what I see or what you see.
    I watch the game.
    Meaning I see what I can about each play.
    Porter has more of an effect than just his tackles.
    So does Brian Urlacher, and he made 141 tackles.

    But it's not fair to compare him to Urlacher, since Urlacher plays in the 4-3.

    Teams run straight at Porter, I don't know how much more he can do without actually being involved in a play then make the team run the other way. He's no
    good in coverage, but he's really never in coverage, since he's constantly blitzing.

    He's too small to be a DE, too slow to be a safety and too stupid to a MLB, so he plays OLB and blitzes every play.

    If he ends up on a team that doesn't run the 3-4, which he will not, he's going to have a terrible year.
    Let's get something straight.
    I never once compared him to Urlacher.
    I stated he would be the LBer on the Vikings right now.
    What am I curious about is how do you come up with the determination that
    he's stupid?
