Default Re: Personnel for a 4-3?

my answer to another fan must be considered by those proposing we make a switch next season-

that means hood and heyward put on 10 lbs and transition to DT (easier for hood).

get rid of harrison and hampton and keisel.

woodley transitions to a dwight freeney type DE. Timmons moves to weak side ILB.

that means we are looking for another DE, MLB and strong side linebacker in next years draft and FA.

thats quite a tall order considering we may need some safety and CB help as well (along with possible replacements for mendenhall and wallace).

might need to get rid of alameda and some zone cb's as well.

to make a long story short, the steelers simply arent making a switch next season. its not as simple as it may be playing madden or changing an entire philosophy before next years fantasy football draft.

i wish people would quit entertaining the idea and bringing it up on the reg as if it deserves sirius consideration.

only 1-15, 2-14 with years of sucking teams do shit like that.
