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.
A NT in Round 1 would be a huge mistake. There just doesn't appear to be any coming out that appear dominant enough for a 1st round grade. Besides this team has other more pressing needs. Safety is a huge concern, both Troy and Ryan are getting older and there is no body waiting in the wings. W. Allen is a good backup but thats it. Unless they convert one of the CB's to safety. ILB is another area we need an upgrade. Foote played well this year but IMO he is about over. This may seem odd but we may be in position now to draft Te'o. If he is available
.

I only see Wallace back if he realizes he is not worth 10 mil a year. if he comes in around 7 great. I can also see us bringing back Hoyer for a real good look at backup QB. Mendy and either Dwyer or Redman will be gone, for me I prefer to keep Redman if we can over Dwyer. But if B.Batch can stay healthy he may just be a diamond in the Rough

Wallace replacement? That's easy to find.

Just find someone capable of going over a 1000 yards a couple of times and disappears against double coverage, against above average defenses, disappears late in the season, and now drops the ball. Buh, but remember his 1 big 50 yard catch that one time? Please - the guy needs and can go - least of our concerns.

Mark Kaboly of the Trib-Review predicts this starting line-up for 2013 - predicts Mendenhall, Wallace, Starks, Foote, Hampton & Harrison are gone

QB - Roethlisberger
RB - Dwyer
WR - Brown, Sanders, Cotchery
TE - Miller
OL - Pouncey, DeCastro, Colon, Adams, Gilbert

DL - Hood, McLendon, Keisel
LB - Worilds, Timmons, Spence, Woodley
DB - Taylor, Allen, Clark, Polamalu

IMO Heath may be delayed in returning due to major knee surgery

In other words prepare for a few down years re building???

Not sure why this is not brought up more but the entire training staff has got to go! We have so many key players dropping EVERY YEAR! Seems more so than any other team!?

I am wondering if this is the year we move to 4-3 with Hampton gone. Draft a DT to play alongside Hood, Mclendon, Heyward, Harrison. Draft LB to play along Woodley and Timmons. Wallace will be gone for sure. Plenty of RB late in draft or on FA no need to keep any of ours.

Keep an aging LB in Harrison over Wallace?

Makes sense....

McLendon and Ta'amu on the roster will be the future of the NT position. Doubtful we spend a premium pick on a 2 down player.

OLB with Pass rush skills, Safety that isnt over the age of 30, ILB not over the age of 30 and RB should be the team priorities before another D lineman.

I'm all for moving to the 4-3. I mean that is Tomlin's defense anyway. Let's see what he's got...

McClendon deserves a chance to start. Whenever he was on the field, which wasn't as much as he should have been, he was making plays.
