Default Re: On the Steelers: Expect a defensive upheaval Farrior, Hampton candidates to go

Lots of changes coming - i am not as confident it will not be bumpy

Farrior had a comeback year in 2010 after a bad 2009, but this past season confirmed his great career is over - I assume Foote will be retained since Sylvester has not indicated he is ready to start at ILB

Gay probably will get a better deal somewhere else for more than the Steelers want to pay for a back-up, unless other teams decide Gay will be exposed in another system

Huge overhaul of the DL coming - I agree with the P-G that Hampton (who slipped in 2011) does not appear to be the type of player who will take a big salary cut for the love of the game - Hoke and Smith are clearly gone

The days of often winning games scoring 17 points or less probably are gone

Nothing lasts forever
