Defense: Keisel, Hampton, Kimo VonO, Hoke, Kriewaldt, Townsend, Taylor, and Hope.
21? Is that right need some help checking facts?
OK, before the sky starts falling from all the FAs leaving town, let's look at your list:

Retiring: Bettis, Kimo

Starters: Randle El (maybe), Ward, Tuman (for now), Hampton, Townsend, Hope.

So of the 21 FAs only 6 are projected as starters for 2006, and that's IF Tuman remains as our TE, or Townsend as our CB. Colclough/Taylor should be ready to take over full time in 2006.

The only ones that I'd be concerned with are Randle El, Ward, Hampton and maybe Hope, depending on his year. No starting OL on your list, and that's a VERY good thing.

The steelers know how valuable hampton is to a 3-4... Even without casey last year, we played well, w/ Hoke..but Hampton is just mammoth that I know the STeelers will be primed to try and resign b/4 he hits the market.

Oh yeah, I'm not saying we are in trouble, but I think I might have an idea how we plan to pay for Farrior's, Foote's and Ward's contracts when some of those names are no longer back. I also see some of those extra draft picks next year for all those FA departures. Rebuild? No way, Reload.

exactly.. rebuilding sux... and since we dont make a habit of keeping around too much dead weight becuz of the big ass contracts they signed that they didnt live up to, we normally stay in pretty good shape year in and year out.
