Default Re: Steelers release QB Brian Hoyer, promote CB Josh Victorian

hoyer was a desperation [we hope he never has to become] stop gap, who came with much less league and playing credibility than plexico burress did at wr.

he was on the street for a reason 3 weeks ago, just like he is on the street today (unless some privaleged steelerfans know something 32 professional teams, canadian league, areana leagues, etc. dont know).
The reason is that too many NFL coaches fear for their jobs. There are probably other Kurt Warners out there but a couple of coaches would need to be fired in order to find them lol.
