he was no existant this year and rarely took the top off the coverage. a full off season with Burress and our WRs dont miss a step.
I just explained to you why we won't draft one in the first round. Again, they wouldn't have kept Ta'amu if they thought they could just replace him, especially after all his legal issues. Obviously they see something in him and thought it was worth it despite the bad PR it was bringing them. We have bigger needs than NT on this defense. When McLendon is on the field, he requires two guys - Hampton doesn't anymore. We have bigger and much more pressing needs than NT - a position we have two young and explosive guys at.

Regarding Wallace - he rarely took the top off defenses because under Haley's system, he's required to run underneath routes and intermediate gains - something he isn't good at. Square peg, round hole.

I didn't mean to "put you down", but you have to look at our actual needs and who we have on our roster behind our veteran guys and see their production and potential. NT isn't a need, but OLB, ILB and FS/SS are.

Resign Wallace, Lewis, Allen, Sanders, and even Mendy if price is right. Draft LB, DE, and SS/DB in first three rounds and not necessarily in that order. We need RB, Backup QB, and a backup TE. Unless a sure fire starter at OL drops to us we should try to wait until later rounds and pick up a project. No true NT will be picked in this years draft by the Steelers.

We're not drafting a NT in the first round. If we thought we could replace Ta'amu in another draft, we wouldn't have put him on the practice squad after the legal issues. Second, this class is too heavily defensive favored to draft an offensive player before the fifth round. Third, we're not resigning Dwyer. Overweight and out-of-shape running backs aren't my style and they shouldn't be the Steelers' style, either. It's time to move on from Captain 3 yards per carry.

Regarding free agency, they're going to resign Wallace. I'd like for you to name a team that will give Wallace more than 10 million a year in terms of a 5 year / 50 million dollar deal. The Steelers will match it, and if any team wants to give him more than that, be my guest.
Agree completely. Who would feel comfortable with just Brown and Sanders as our tandem next year? The young fumble crew. I hate to admit it but we need Wallace

First round i want a pass rusher, be it a DE or OLB, everyone has seen enough of Ziggy Hood and Harrison may be gone unless he takes a pay cut. The fact is we get no pressure. Our secondary still had a great season despite that fact just imagine how good we could be if we got that one stud (eg JJ Watt, Geno Atkins, Ngata). I know im dreaming but still..

2nd and 3rd round need to target an ILB and a safety. Nobody knows how long troy is going to last and Clark is getting up there in digits, its time for a young guy to come in and learn under those two guys. Mundy clearly isnt the guy and Will Allen is a band aid despite the excellent season he did have.

Go after a running back in the 4th or 5th and a linebacker with the other, inside or outside doesnt matter we need depth.

Not a college ball fan so you will all have to help with me with specific players we should be looking at. That is my wish list at least

Also agree with your assessment of McLendon. He POPS when he is on the field he gets tremendous push and i feel very comfortable with him getting more snaps at NT. He should have gotten way more snaps this season to be honest

i hear you but i thought they released Ta amu. McClendon isnt the answer. if he was he would be in there more than hampton was.

this offseaosn will be interesting. with out age the window is closing

Here is who has to go and why:

Harrison-Age/ injuries
Polamalu- Age/ injuries
Woodley- Lack of talent
Foote - age/ unprodutive
Adams - Inuries (hasn't finished any of the last 3 seasons)
Wallace- lack of talent (doesn't come back to the ball or even try to)
Mendy- lack of talent (stutter steps and dances too much)

Harrison 5.1 million and Keisel 2.8 Million on cap savings alone, need gone.

I assume you mean Colon (not Adams), and if so I agree.

Harrison is overpriced and washed up. He's gone.

Polamalu will be back, but if he misses significant time agian next year, it should be his last.

Woodley has been terrible all year, but he'll be back.

Wallace needs to be back. I hate him as much as anyone, but the Steelers need him. Brown isn't a #1 WR, and Sanders can't stay on the field.

Mendy needs to go. He's an average back and a headcase. There should be plenty of FAs comparable to him, and cheaper.

I really think our #1 pick is going to be an ILB. With Foote being a FA..we definitely have a need there....even if we decide to re sign foote..he's older and not that good. With one of the highest draft picks we've had in years.. you need to get a playmaker IMO.

I'd like to see us keep Hampton...he's still playing at a high level. If we do lose Hampton then I hope we replace him in free agency. We need someone who is a proven NT.

I'd like to see a RB taken in the 2nd round.

I would have to disagree...I believe Foote has played much better than Hampton this year!
