There are some LEGENDARY players in there. Many of them past their prime but some weren't. In my mind the Patriots are the most active FA team in the NFL outside of the Redskins and Cowboys.
I'm not sure how you can pull the "Patriot Way" card here. You have had as many high-profile free agents as anyone.
Ryan Clark, Jerome Bettis, James Farrior, Kimo von Oelhoffen, Kevin Greene etc. have been vital to the Steelers success over the years. It is hard enough to win without trying to win a certain way.
Get off your soapboxes you idiots!
I don't follow the Pats. I was talking about the Steelers, who are known for building from within more than acquiring free agents to find success. I think that's something to be proud of as a Steelers fan.
From now on I would like to be referred to as Dr. Professor in recognition of my intellectual achievements.
