Another installment of Bob Labriola answering your questions about the Steelers and the NFL.
If I remember correctly, Landry Jones was a fourth-round pick. I'm just wondering how his college stats and combine performance compare to Joshua Dobbs' since he was also a fourth round pick?

A live Q&A with Bob Labriola.
Bob, Outside of the Steelers' defense of the 70's I would argue that Steelers defenses of the mid 90's were the second best. I think they were largely unappreciated as well. Lloyd, Greene, Chad Brown, Kirkland, Woodson, Lake, Perry, Seals, Buckner, etc... If only the Steelers would have had a franchise QB during that era. That was really the only piece that was missing...your thoughts?
