Steelers' draft leaves an empty feeling

It's been a week, and all the NFL draft hype finally has settled down.

Are you happy with the Steelers' picks?

Can't say I am.

I know the Steelers came across as happy with their selection of Bud Dupree with the 22nd pick overall.

Let be back up a step.

I get why they need linebackers. If the linebacker can pressure the quarterback, the cornerbacks don't have to cover the receiver for that long.

The linebacker is a big part of their defense.

So they've invested highly in them.

And Dupree is a linebacker. If he pans out, they don't need a world-class CB to shut down an opponent.

Now that that's out of the way, I still don't like the pick.

One report had the Steelers happy because Dupree fell to him.

Well, players fall for a reason. Like Jarvis Jones.

I didn't like the pick then. I still don't like it.

Then they took short corner Senquez Golson in the second round. He's not quite 5-9, but he's on the short side. If he's going up agains…

DeflateGate report changes view of Brady

Well, how can I put this?

Tom Brady wasn't honest with us.

Disagree?

Before the Super Bowl, he stood in front of a host of media and said he didn't alter the football.

Yeah, and Watergate was all about water.

The Wells Report finally was released, and we have a "more probable than not" idea what happened.

The footballs were altered. And Brady had a pretty good idea, too.

On top of that, the Golden Boy of Football wasn't very cooperative with the investigation.

It makes me sick.

It's cheating. And the Patriots got away with it.

Again.

It's not performance-enhancing drugs, but this can be packaged in the same group of Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and Lance Armstrong.

All denied doing anything wrong.

Then things changed.

Brady deserves to be suspended.

How can the NFL have Lev Bell miss two games for marijuana use and Brady go unscathed?

Now we need to see what commissioner Roger Goodell has planned.

Hopefully it doesn't take him 100-plus days…
