Re: Starkey: Steelers must rebuild 'Stained Curtain'
The article is just re-hashing the same things we have knows now for the past two years. We can beat this to death but we all know that this defense needs re-building BIG TIME! We also need to add serious depth as well because our back-ups would be 3rd's on other teams with a strong D (Seattle). In my opinion, the only one that should be back on this defense as a starter is Troy & Worilds. I would only take Ike back on a reduced salary and as a back-up. I know right now we really don't have another starter but Ike is now a liability instead of an asset but he would be good to mentor a young guy, drafted player. Woodley should be cut/designated for after June 1st. Ziggy, unfortunately cannot play at the level that is required for this D. Keisel is still more effective when he is not hurt. To be honest with everyone, it may take this and the next draft to get things sorted out on D, assuming we hit on these picks as well.
