Sweed to be the 4th WR Monday Night in Denver

Hmmm….remember Limas Sweed? Yeah, he was that guy that couldn’t catch a cold and cost the team the Bengals game earlier this season when he dropped a for sure TD that probably would have clinched the game. Well, now Sporting News reports that Sweed will get another shot vs the Broncos Monday night:

Steelers second-year wide receiver Limas Sweed, who has been beset with drop problems, will be the fourth receiver against the Broncos. He is getting another chance because he has looked good in practice the last couple weeks, according to the coaches.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.

    NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! LOL! Think I got my point across that Sweed should NOT play in a game a crucial as this?

    Here we go again. Should we say “decoy”? What are the odds Ben actually throws his way more than twice? Unless #14 makes a HUGE catch somewhere in this game,He wont be dressed again. For Gods sake, if they need another WR call Marvin Harrison.

    This has more to do with money than actual performance. Tomlin used a #2 pick on this guy in 2008 (perceived at the time as a steal) and is obligated to vindicate the pick, if he can. Otherwise, Sweed will become a very expensive mistake, along with lightly regarded Tony Hills and the now departed Bruce Davis and Mike Humpal from the 2008 Draft.

    Sweed does have size and lots of potential. But right now, Shaun McDonald (the top receiver at Detroit before joining the Steelers) is a better receiver than Sweed, and he has yet to be given a decent chance on the field. If Tomlin wants to rebuild Sweed’s confidence, the Denver game seems a strange venue to choose. To beat Denver, we’re going to need everyone’s A-game — and Sweed doesn’t have one.
