Re: RB for next year
I will tell you right now - Shaun Alexander will NOT be a Steeler next year.
The Steelers are not known for their big splashes into the free agency market - much the same as the Patriots.
My belief is that he will sign a long term deal to stay at the Seahawks before too long.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
