I can't take your post seriously with this kind of spelling.

Also, a 35 year old with an ACL injury played fine considering his situation.

Till they prove me wrong and they didn't disappoint me a lot since they're here. We should look at the future and draft somebody at OLB but as far as I concern we have a very good team going into next year. That can create pressure!!!
I disagree (about the pressure).

There were times when the opposing QB had 5-7 seconds to throw. I remember the days of Joey Porter getting to the QB in 1.5 seconds. I remember the days of the Greg Lloyd strip-sack. I remember when Harrison was healthy & Woodley was under 320 pounds. Those were days when there was pressure.

Last year, Harrison was not "Harrison" until the second half (because his knee was all jacked up). When he returned to form, he alone was creating the pressure; Woodley could not do anything. Occassionally, Timmons would create some pressure, but he mostly was out covering TEs & RBs.

Yes, Harrison looks like he has some gas left in the tank. But, aside from him (& the occassional sack by Timmons), there was little-to-no pressure.

I can count on one hand the number of times that the DL batted a pass... or got a sack... or was even in the backfield.

A healhty Harrison forces the offense to roll protection towards Harrison, which frees up the rest of the defense ot pressure the QB. And, again, that was not happening until the second half of the season. Furthermore, even when teams would double Harrison, Woodley did NOTHING.

Harrison has about one more year left in him. An OLB definitely needs to be drafted early... otherwise, expect more seasons like this past one: lacking in pressure.

We need to develop a Harrison 2.0 with our 1st round pick. When Harrison goes, we got Mr.Rookie. I think Harrison has 2 years left barring one of "those" injuries.

Exactly.

Exit Greg Lloyd, enter Jason Gildon.
Exit Jason Gildon, enter Joey Porter.
Exit Joey Porter, enter James Harrison.
Exit James Harrison, enter Barkeveous Mingo.

I think Harrison has one "good" season left in him, and at the end of that season, he will hoist the Lombardi & decalre, "I'm retiring."

I dunno, Peyton Manning is over 32, he's old and washed up.



I have faith in only a handful of the "Young Money" crew; Brown, Lewis/C.Allen, DeCastro and Heyward.

FYI: The Young Money Crew is comprised of the three receivers:
Wallace, AB, & Sanders.

Did any Steeler that age or older play close to Manning's level this year?

Sorry, it's a business, not a family. Tough decisions have to be made if the Steelers want to build a championship team going forward.

Starks, Lewis, and Wallace should be priorities going forward. Cowher's 10-13 year vets should be 2nd priority.
