Pittsburgh fire sale: The Steelers could lose every one of their FAs
 
Pittsburgh fire sale: The Steelers could lose every one of their free agents

Submitted by 60 Max Power O Staff on February 7, 2013

How did the Pittsburgh Steelers get into this situation? The usually fiscally sound organization has fallen on hard times with the salary cap.

The philosophy of pushing money into the future ended with the new CBA, and the Steelers are at the front of the line for paying back it’s long due credit line.

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, if you thought last year was tough, this year will be brutal.

He’s referring to the impending slashing of veterans as the “March Massacre.” Pittsburgh’s GM Kevin Colbert gave an indication in January that major changes were going to happen, but no one expected what Bouchette is envisioning:

“The Steelers could lose every one of their free agents, and they might have to lose a few more veterans if they don’t agree to take less money in 2013, they are so far over the salary cap that they would not be able to fill a 53-man roster without doing all of that,” Bouchette said.

Bouchette continues:

“The bloodletting that occurred last year when they released three longtime stars could be a drop in the bucket as to what occurs over the next month, which could resemble their March Massacre.”

I still will be surprised when it happens, but it's nice to know that it might be that big of a change.

The thing with the NFL is teams can go from worst to first in a year. You bring the right young talent in and keep the right veterans, along with sound coaching it can happen. Especially when you have a franchise QB.

Teams that stink for long period of times do not get good QB play or dont have that QB of the future or franchise QB>

I'm ok with the purge. I am used to seeing top names not get resigned or cut, its the steeler way.

This year trading down is a must to stock pile picks. trade trade trade anyone on defense with value like harrison, woodley or Troy as they are brand names.

go 6-10 in 2013 and get a top 10 pick and make the run in 2014.

If it means we're bringing in young guys, let's do it. Oh, and if it means we're getting a legitimate RB, let's do it.

Ive said it before and ill say it again. We persevere. Idc, we are winning the division for the next 2two seasons. Yes im that blindly confident.


Look I realize how crazy my prediction is but if there is one thing im lacking when it comes to the Steelers it aint faith and it aint confidence.

Mclendon is the only one I desperately want back. We're solid at corner without lewis and Lake proved he's a HELL of a db coach. Draft a receiver to fill in for Wallace, try to get someone to split carries in the backfield, hire a fucking good conditioning coach so we're not playing with fifty different o line combos next year.

Absolutely not. We throw a plethora of our later round picks away anyway.

Now is the time to DRAFT AN IMPACTFUL PLAYER in the first round and second rounds.

No more Ziggy Hoods (misfit in our D), Cameron Heywards (barely plays), Jason Worilds (sucks), O-linemen who get injured, etc.

Haven't you heard? The Steelers are done, the Bengals are better than the Steelers, and the Ravens will dominate the AFC North for years to come. At least, that's what Ravens fans on this board are saying, and we all know they are always right.:chuckle:
