That absurd contract the Steelers gave Woodley is killing them. I hate to say I told you do, but...

Yeah, I mean unless he gets back in shape and continues being a beast like he was a couple years ago, that contract was foolish.

I agree with cutting Harrison. We can't bank of Willie Colon as he has demonstrated he can't stay healthy. take the cap hit on him and move on. Kiesel still has some gas left in the tank and we need his leadership so maybe restructure him....

What? Huh? Why are they playing everywhere else but not here? Doesn't make sense to me, never did.
Wasn't ownership heavily critical about sitting rookies during last offseason? Or is my mind slipping? That and the running game... we see how well that worked!

Great read! Agree with most of it but the Keisel thing. I just don't see us cutting him. Even though Heyward would be fine. I don't think it's enough money to lose that much leadership. Not that it helped last year but he is too valuable IMO.

DD and Adams both started. Beachum played quite a bit and so did Rainey. Spence was hurt. Ta'amu wasn't needed. All in all I would say the rookies got quite a lot of playing time compared to years past.

I really don't think there was much choice on those O-line moves. Granted, DD was planning on starting until the injury. However, I was thinking more on the defensive side of things. And I guess I should re-phrase to say "young players" and not rookies. I believe Rooney came out and criticized the coaches for that last offseason. Anyone else remember?

The contracts that we gave Harrison and Troy were foolish. A 35 and a 31 year old with cap hits both over 10 million dollars but no one is talking about Troy because, well, he's Troy.

Before we criticize Woodley, let's remember that Troy was equally as unproductive this year as LaMarr. If you're going to complain about Woodley's cap hit, complain about Troy's first. 10 million for a guy that had a hoodie and a headset on isn't worth it.

You're right but nobody is questioning Troy if he's 100%. I don't know about Woodley after this year. Don't say I'm in that group, but the general trust belongs more to Troy then LaMarr.

My approch would be cutting rather Keisel and try anything to keep Harrison here, because he is a key factor in this defense definitly more then Keisel. And we have a very good replacement option for him in Heyword, who we have to start in 2013.

Here's the deal with Colon though... if we cut him we'll have to either Re-Sign Foster, who's mediocre at best, start Tackle Kelvin Beachum at Left Guard where he's unproven, or waste a high round draft pick on a left guard, which we can't afford to do this year. So restructuring his deal to save some cap this year and give him one more chance is the best option as he's obviously the best guard other than DeCastro that we have...
