Whether it be an Outside backer, O-lineman, RB or WR, our FO should seriously think of getting help from the outside.
As for our WR's, if/when we lose Wallace, our Week 1, 2013 starters are 1. Brown 2. Sanders 3. Cotchery 4. Burress, (minus Heath with a knee.) Not too sure if those 4 as a group strikes fear in anybody, especially Haley's dink and dunk approach without any feature-back threat.
Absolutely. the Steelers MUST do something in free agency this year if they want to "reload". Unless you draft in the top 10 ; your pick won't be ready to play next year. They need a rb regardless of who they keep back there. Wallace is gone. And let's be honest; the wr's have not played well this year. If there was a legit star available in the 1st round; I would grab one there. But they have to do something this year in free agency because they have way too many holes to fill.
