And I honestly think Cotch will be a great player for us in production and in the locker room.

Well a #4 on this team has a shot at #3 due to Sanders injury issues. Plus I think you will see a number of plays with 4 wr's. The only problem is, Ben doesn't have aenough time to check down 3 routes and hit the 4th due to the fact he would be laying down after the 1st check down.


I would be ok with Burress as a #4 if the price is right, the price will be upwards of 2.5-3mill for 2-3 years. He behaved himself last year in a tough environment with a QB that is not much of anything.

I would only see this if they cannot sign Cotchery. He is a great fit for our offense - different than the other receivers. Burress only as a last resort. Why would we want him and his baggage? This is a ploy to get Cotchery to sign.

I hope they ignore Plax. We let him go once before because of his "issues" why bring him back. Want to get a receiver that has good value for the talent, go get Colston.

Screw that. Spend some real money and go after Vincent Jackson. He is young and much better than Plaxico ever was. I know that is a pipe dream with the Steelers, but Jackson would look great in the black and gold. We would be absolutely unstoppable. I know we have cap issues and they would never get him, but if Wallace goes, then maybe the cap issues are quite as bad.

Agreed 100%. Jets fans acted like we are acting here with Hines being gone when Cotch left them and Cotchery is still in his PRIME as a wideout. Cotch fits PERFECTLY with us and they are saying he's had good production today discussing a new contract for the Steelers. I hope it happens!

There's no way to know that, he's rarely had to opportunity to play. He did great with the Jets, and I think he'll do great next year.
