I know some people think it's fail because the Steelers choose to try and build from within and not jump at the first expensive free agent. That philosophy has worked for the past 40 years or so.
With all these apparent problems the so called experts say we have we still win on a consistant basis, which gives us a lower draft choice. That means we have to take less talented players and wait a little longer than the "sure thing" that is routinely drafted at the top of the draft.
If some of you people are so unhappy with the tried and true formula the Steelers use, which means we are almost always competing or in the running for championships and playoffs, then go cheer for the Browns or jump on the Cheatriots bandwagon. Quit messing up these boards with your negative bull$hit, it's really getting old.
