I almost wish he'd hold out the entire season...allow his replacment time to grow and develop.

His negative outlook will only add a distraction to the locker room and bring down the moral of the team.

I think if he starts to be a distraction that Mikey T will bench his butt and let someone else that wants to play hard and win take his spot. I am thinking Mikey T is a no crap kind of guy, you have a job or position to play and you will either do it or sit on the bench and look pretty

Well, let's look at it from Faneca's point of view. He wants top guard money. He's not going to get that if he plays at "half-speed". While I felt Faneca went overboard with his comments and made a complete idiot of himself, I do not think he would let his fellow teammates down by purposely playing at a low level. Plus, would you want to confront every player in that Steeler locker room knowing that they know you are not giving 100%? Doesn't sound like a fun day at the office.

ON top of that, a player will get injured easier if he does NOT go full speed. WHen your not full speed, your not mentally in the game, which means you are forgetting things, missing things, etc. He will be full speed, for his own safety if not anything else!

Alan will play full out and the best he can, he will want a pro bowl season to get even a bigger and better deal when he reaches FA this next season.

We all knew he would not be back until training camp, no big deal.

There is always still a chance come august we still sign him. It might only be a 3% chance but its there.

And there is always another chance of a trade.

No reason to beat the old head over it. What happens happens.
