Woodson refused to switch to safety and insisted on playing CB. He sucked at it while he was a 49er (i.e washed up as a CB) and finally made the switch to safety as a Raven and Raider. If he was willing to switch to S as a Steeler, we would have kept him. I agree with the Steelers' assessment

Porter - there is no way he had as good of a year as he did as a Steeler. He was clearly a player that looked better in the Steeler system than his pure talent. He was still servicable - but there was no way I would have kept him over Harrison.

Plexico still had yet to reach his peak but he was a headcase - there was good reason to get rid of him.

Vrable did not fit our system. We had too much talent at LB to keep this guy. He was neither washed up or a headcase so I would put him in the Chris Hope / Kevin Greene category.

Kris Brown - I think letting him go was a big mistake. We suffered for a while trying to find a kicker and lucked out with Jeff Reed. As you can see, the FO did not make the same mistake twice placing the tag on Reed
kris brown vrabel did not fit a 3-4 porters 17 sacks with miami agreeing with getting rid of woodson

kris brown

is there any REAL football talk going on around here?
