Honestly I think Ward has a few more years left in him.

He was never a speedster, so aging isn't too big a deal.

Get Sweed in there more often, Nate has had his chance and in my eyes has not earned his stripes.

Memo is a great option.

Rookies take time to adjust in the majority of cases and Sweed was behind vets like Holmes, Ward, Washington......and he cant tackle on special teams.

Sweed.[/B]
Washington drops to many balls

The fact that we have TOO MANY options at WR and RB is a blessing...

I'm alright with letting Sweed ride the pine on offense the rest of the year, but if they get him in there I wish him luck.

The guy reminds me of a baby deer...

... A baby deer that could kick my ass.

We were real lucky to find Moore. He should have some type of future with us, as I am really leaning towards running back by committee, with Willie as the head of the committee.

Sweed will be a good player in the future. He just needs to get used to his body and the speed of the game.

Holmes has had his three strikes in Pittsburgh, so we need to get rid of him. I really do not like him.

What the hell? Holmes is about an inch away from being Pro Bowl material, and he'll probably take over for Ward as the #1 guy in a couple years. As far as I know, he hasn't really been a problem with the Steelers except for the one bonehead move. Unless he does something worse than that, we need to keep him around.

Ward is still going to be a good receiver for a few years, but let's face it, age is going to catch up with him someday and he'll wind up as a #2 guy or a slot receiver. Not that he can't continue to make big contributions there, but we've got to hold on to the guys who can eventually take over for him.

Yeah, Sweed taking over for Holmes at this point is about as likely as Eric Mangini becoming the Patriots D-coordinator.

Ward, Holmes, Washington, Sweed for now and maybe expect Washington to leave in free agency with Dallas Baker or Martin Nance becoming the #4 and a rookie WR/KR to be on the squad next year.
