    Def an upgrade over cotch...better NFL career...has won and is target in draft needs to be a big tall WR to go up and get balls esp in red zone... Ben has been asking for this type of WR.

    I think the Steeler fans will like Moore. While he is not the player he was he really isn't that bad.

    That's good to hear...I'm a Pitt grad and remember playing against him in college when he was at Toledo...Always seemed like a good guy and had some monster games
