we should trade him for a 1st and a 3rd. oh wait, they dont have a 3rd cause they used it on a drug addict in the supplimental draft. try again bungles. although im a little concerned about art II. he may trade him for a 5th rounder (well below market value if you look at what the seahawks gave up for d. branch) in an effort to save a few bucks. we then, will promptly draft a bust and cut him in training camp.

The Steelers wouldn't trade Porter to a divisional rival anyway.

why not? what if it saves them about $5 mil, gets a few draft picks, and a rookie hc (tomlin, rivera) wants to switch to a 4-3?

i never thought the rooneys would balk on paying cowher market value and bring in chan gailey for an interview to replace him either. anything is possible at this point.

anything would be nice. just as long i don't see the gildon loop being peformed every other play

if the steelers do go after some LBs in the draft i hope they stay away from the DE's and try to convert them into OLBs. i would like to see LBs who played LB in college drafted.

If we can hold on to the four we have now for another year, with Harrison stepping in when needed... or even replacing one when possible, I think we will be okay. What I really want to see is us spend our money and time on CB's. once that is done, then our focus must be placed on the LB's for Defense.

However, I think we may have a hole or two in the O line to fill, though it think it may be possible that Kemo and willie Colon might have fixed that already.

the DBs are always going to be exposed because the LB corps is not good. the LBs are the key unit which makes the steelers 3-4 work. porter is going to be $6.6 mil against the cap next season. $6.6 for a LB who is way too inconsistent. this group of LBs is getting less QB pressures than the D-line. harrison needs to step in for porter or foote now.
