First of all, let me remind you that Bettis was labled as a troubled player when we got him from the Rams...Secondly, Rogers showed promise in the beginning of his rookie year. If he was healthy, I'd take a chance on him. Cowher could change his attitude. Barry Sanders didn't want to play in Detroit....Why would anyone else?

Finally a voice of reason and objectivity. Sure we are loaded at wide Reciever. But Hines is the only Elite playmaker.
The young guys have a ton of upside,....but they are not there yet. And c'mon,.... Cedrick Wilson,....is simply average at the VERY BEST.

Didn't Rogers sit out some games for violating the substance abuse policy? I think that would make him a non-Steeler right there.

Tom

If you played for the Lions,.....you'd probably partake of the "stickiest of the ickey" LOL
And also,....in reference to being "Non-Steeler" material. Your saying that no Steeler of the past or PRESENT has or does smoke weed ?..... STOP PLAYIN.
Do i personally advise it ? No,....but i'm not nieve enough to believe that it doesn't happen and that there are'nt some player's of considerable ability and success that do so.
The injury woe's are one thing,.....judgment of another's character requires a far greater amount qualification and actual knowledge of the person or person's in question.

So......

Attitude problem.

Suspension for substance abuse.

Injury problems.

I actually forgot about the substance abuse problems. While I don't see the Steelers signing him, I'm sure somebody will pick him and maybe he can turn himself around. I'll still stick with "No thanks and I'm content with our WR core.".

I can understand your optimism 83,.....but i can't say i'm anywhere near "content" with any of our recievers that aren't Hines Ward.
Not saying we will or should go after Rodger's,.....but if we were to sign him to a heavily incentive laden short term contract i wouldn't be mad at all.
Because from a purely "Football" point of view,....he's a considerable upgrade over marginal players like Ced, and Nate.
Who know's,.... perhaps playing in a tough, disciplined, and winning enviroment such as ours would be just what the kid needs to fulfil his playing potential.

Wilson looked fine to me since the second half of last season up until now.

Hines Ward is well.....Hines Ward.

Washington looked fine to me ever since the Bronco's playoff game.

Holmes and Reid will develope.

Haynes on screens.

Heath Miller.

I'll start being concerned if Holmes and Reid start dropping balls and if Wilson starts looking like Wilson in the first eight games of last season. Until then, I'm content. I really haven't seen a reason or reasons to not be content. When our first string offense was out on the field I thought it looked very nice (Ben to Wilson in particular). I'm just curious to see what it looks like when we actually start game planning.
