if you're talkin to me, i did state early in my post that i only watched one game, so right off the bat that should tell you i didn't watch all the games......the rest of the games i just followed on crappy nfl.com. he only went in when garbage players were in. he probably would've sucked against real talent

Why is Duce even here? Christ. Why not cut him?

He's not even going to be active for games.

Parker, Haynes, Cobbs will be active. Staley will be deactivated unless there are injuries.

So will Haynes be both our 3rd down back and our change of pace back?



Get used to it.

Practice squad????? That has to be the line of the year. What proven NFL player goes on someones practice squad AFTER the prime of his career?

WTF!!!

Keeping worthless, useless Duce..........make a deal with the Pats for a rookie running back who doesn't have clue one of the Steelers offensive system, let both Humes and Kuhn go with one or both probably not clearing waivers, not to mention the entire stable of receivers it looks like that are going to be kept.

This has BLUNDER written all over it.

if u didnt see anything special then you must be blind because he did lead our team in ypc this preseason. he would of been a better addition to the team than cobbs was. cobbs isnt even that big of a back, he isnt what we need. kuhn isnt being overrated just stated that he would of been the best guy toback up willie. i personally dont think verron or duce will be doing a good job. i think they will both be released at the end of the season. verron is too small to be a powerback and duce is too bloaded.kuhn weighed 250 and was around 6' tall but he was fast(for a 250 pound guy) i just hope we find someone in the draft next year.

WTF....I'm growing very tired of this BS. He needs to go. Plain and f'in simple. And once again, he's gonna be inactive. Boy, what a big f'in surprise.

I hope so....i have to admit, I saw 2 preseason games, so \i really cant give you much of an opinion on Kuhn. i only got the 1st game and the 3rd game here in NY...listened to portions of the other 2 on SIRIUS.

Look at the bright side. Duce will probably have an injury after a few games and we can bring in Yancey Thigpen's ghost.....oh wait, Duce is Yancey's ghost....

Sorry, thats about all the positive spin i can give this move.
