The IF that comes with Duce will never go away. He is costing far too much in money and medical.

My point is that more production and consistency at tailback means the need for hyper-quality (i.e. Moss, T.O.) receivers is small. Run the right passing routes w/ the ability to make adjustments and catch the damn ball when you can read the fine print on the pigskin. Economy has been the Steeler way at the receiver position. Hines Ward is an anomaly is so many ways...on the field and off.

I think they'll find ARE's replacement with relative ease. His numbers are actually pretty weak. And with the players union about throw ice water on themselves, the chances that ARE stays put are improving.
I agree. I think you & I are on the same page about Duce, completely. With him healthy and running to his potential, he brings as much, possibly more to the table in the "Bus role" as JB himself. But.... MAN! I was telling my wife during the season, I forgot what his number was. I'd recognize him in plainclothes anywhere. I've seen most of his favorite outfits, I'll bet. Bus believes in him, though. 2 years of rust is hard to shake off at this level.
