It has been a pretty good ride over the years (competitive). But we now find ourselves in uncharted waters. We have never been in a financial situation like the one we're in now. Hopefully we can work through it, I have no desire to re-live the 80"s and 90"s (competitive but no rings) again. A few bad moves and we could find ourselves in a tighter pickle.

Traditionally, the Front Office has always gotten it right. I've been following the team since 1974, they know what they have to do. There is only two Free Agents I think is worthy of bringing back - McLendon and Keenan Lewis. Everybody else, could care less.

If those kind of deals take place, I'm sure a team that needs a Safety, ROLB and DE would give up a fairly high pick for one or two of those guys.
That's one thing everyone can agree upon. There are some teams run by morons out there. As for the Raiders I personally think Al Davis was in with the Mob (gambling and pointspread issues); how else can you explain all the mental retardation in Oakland since the early 1990's? They pawned their future several times for aging stars well past their primes (Russell Maryland Larry Brown in 1996, Seymour, Palmer), the list goes on. There are other poorly run teams though. The Chargers, Chiefs, Jets, and Bears I think are all poorly run.

Those two, Will Allen, and maybe Plaxico Burress are the only free agents I want back as well. Somebody said Max Starks, but I think Todd Haley and the new offensive line coach want smaller, more nimble offensive linemen, and Starks is not a good fit. Neither is Willie Colon, for that matter. Expect both of them to be gone.

Brett Keisel and James Harrison are both too expensive for their age and recent performance, but I'd like to see both of them take a pay cut instead of being cut outright. I believe they can both contribute for one more season. And if I had to choose between keeping Ike Taylor or Keenan Lewis right now, I say keep Lewis, because it puts the team in a better long-term situation.

Here's how I see the draft priority for the Steelers:

1. OLB
2. RB
3. WR
4. QB (depth)
5. ILB (depth)
6. G/T (depth)

Keep Plaxico, Foster, Legursky, Lewis, Starks, McLendon, Dwyer, Redman and Sanders

The rest, gut 'em if they aren't worth it. Keisel, Troy and Harrison need to take a pay cut.

Also, give Hampton a goodbye ceremony.

I'm glad some people think the Steelers are dominant,The Bengals ARE better than the Steelers and so are the Ravens. I can recall the 3rd quarter of the last game this year when the Browns with a 3rd string QB looked like they were gonna beat this team, when the Steelers vaunted run game and improved offensive line couldn't gain 1 yard on 2 downs to move the chains.The Steelers are in major trouble and Steeler fans scoff at teams like the Browns, the Browns are doing a hell of a lot better than the Steelers rebuilding their team and most are too proud to acknowledge it.

Who said anything about dominant? I just think that they will be competitive, and I believe they will make the playoffs next year while having a better season than the Bengals and possibly beating the Ravens for the division title. I didn't realize that optimism was the same thing as thinking a team is dominant.

Keisel still has it, he was behind 'Hofen for so long he has less milage. He had a great season this year.

Harrison though... this may be his final hoorah.

The Bengals are better than the Steelers? You're right, the redheaded step-child Quarterback is better than Roethlisberger. Oh, nevermind the fact that we held AJ Green to one catch for 8 yards when Taylor was healthy, that team is straight up dominate. That secondary - look out. They're so good and not at all overrated.

The Bengals aren't better than the Steelers and it's not even close. Do they have a better front 7? Sure. Do they have a better overall WR corp? No, and despite popular belief, AJ Green is their only surehanded receiver. So, stop with the bullshit after one season because frankly, it's getting old seeing it. It's from the same 4 - 5 guys that make every single topic into a 'x team is better than us because of ridiculously ignorant and stupid x reason'. There's enough threads out there that put the Bengals' and Ravens' balls in your mouth - keep the stupidity in those please.
