We wouldn't bring back Plax over Cotchery if Cotch wants to come back. Clearly, the organization was impressed with what Cotchery showed last year. And there's no way that Plax, even if signed, would be put above Sanders on the depth chart. Living in NY, I watched Burress a lot this year and at this stage in his career, he's much better suited to being a #3/red zone guy than he is to being a starter. It'd be incredibly foolish to put a 35-year-old guy who left town 8 years ahead of a young stud on the depth chart.
I'm not saying it didn't happen but I don't remember it either. I remember Wallace and Johnson dropping gimmie balls.

This is what I'm hopping for. If we don't draft an o linemen in the first or second rnd. I'll be pissed.

Would you rather draft someone, or bring in a known free agent commodity? As expensive as Flozell was, he was an improvement over anyone that would have been drafted the year the STeelers brought him in.

Steelers need to draft best available player with that pick. If it's a wide receiver, fine. Inside linebacker, fine. O-lineman, fine.


I don't want the Steelers to reach for an O-lineman that probably won't see the field a lot this year.



Check out this pool of 6'2"+ receivers in this years draft.
You can probably get a 2 or 3rd round guy that would be a solid #4 on the Steelers roster.

Dwight Jones or the guy from Notre Dame would fit nicely on the team, and then we wouldn't have to hear about Plaxico anymore.

Not sure why people are so high on Sanders.

For what it's worth, Sanders was becoming one of Ben's favorite targets in the 2010 Super Bowl season. He was a clutch 3rd down go to guy before he broke his foot and had complications in the Super Bowl.

In that WC game in Denver, Sanders came up huge again, catching a diving-beauty from Ben on a big 3rd down to keep us alive for the game-winning drive until we shot ourselves in the foot. With Sanders healthy, we are only better.
