Heard some encouraging words from a huge Pitt fan today. Pretty intelligent guy who watches every game intently. Called Kennan Lewis the best player on their D last year and how "Silly" it was to let him walk for the pedestrian amount the Saints paid. Thinks he has potential for a few Pro Bowls and is just coming into his own.
I gotta different impression after browsing Pittsburg message boards and from what national media response I have heard.
The theme of the message boards was that he wouldn't be missed greatly but it would have been nice to have him while younger talent developed. The NFL network radio station
mentioned he was a decent pickup and could compete for a starting position but needed to make better plays on the ball. I haven't come across ANYTHING that has him as the best corner on the team much less the best player, but I love the optimism. I think he will definitely strengthen our secondary.
