I would be glad to have Casey back Cheap.

Keisel is the issue with his cap hit. Heyward needs to start anyhow!
Heyward is starting... Keisel, Heyward, Hampton and McLendon would be my D Line.

No way we cut Keisel. I do think he should cut his salary though.

The same things were being said about Porter before he was released... and, then they started James Harrison. Plus, sometimes, fiscally it makes more sense to move on.

Sign Keenan Lewis... or, bring back Casey the Hutt?

A: Keenan, Ike, & Cortez... and McClendon
B: Ike, Cortez, Curtis... and Casey.

Give me A.

Are we changing to a 4-3 that I wasnt told of yet?? Hampton plays NT and Hood is not a NT.

Ta'amu was impressive in college in his junior and Senior years. Was selected as the eventual replacement for Hampton and I think he gets another year behind McLendon if the lynch mob on this forum doesnt get him first.

Keisel will be 35 when the season starts. Probably about time to hang it up. If he takes a haircut, fine. If not, Heyward, McLendon, Hood.

Keisel is still our RE. Heyward has earned the Left, but Hood is NOT Keisel. He will stay there for 2/3 more years.

Brother, let me say it as nicely as I can:

My dad was the same way about Hines Ward. My brother-in-law was the same way about The Bus. And, I was the same way about Greg Lloyd.

I get your sentiment, but after 34 year of age, players get old... quickly.

I can tell you this, if Hood is better than Keisel even at his age, then Ziggy is a DAMN fine player. Hell, I'll burn my Keisel on video, a promise right now, if Hood can come in and do better than him this season.

Heyward is a successor to Keisel; Hood is not.

Exactly... and Heyward is ready.

Joey Porter was let go. Greg Lloyd was let go. Franco Harris was let go.

More importantly, Hines Ward was great one year... and then, nothing. Father Time is faster than all of us. It's just a matter of when.
