Yes because BR7 has an all pro line and top of league wideouts...How dare he not come thru every game.

I know it's a long shot, especially now that Sanders and Brown have emerged, but does anyone think Grisham will play another down with the team?
Grisham is a fairly decent slot receiver. He has good speed, a good route runner and isn't afraid to take a hit. I'm surprised the Patriots haven't tried to pick him up. He fits their mold.

No gloves, but I was thinking that he should go get them.

I saw several balls that looked as if they slipped a bit as he threw them. He himself says he grips the ball better with the gloves so why not keep wearing them?

Joe Burnett - out the league as I know
Mewelde Moore is still relatively young - I wouldn't get rid of him just yet
We need a youth influx in CB like we got in WR this year

I predict that EMMANUAL SANDERS will be the WR that will lead this team in catches next year over Mike Wallace. It seems to me that down the stretch - Ben had more confidence that Sanders had the better hands than Wallace.

Sweed needs to be cut and forgot about for the Steelers. I think we have plenty of good WRs for the next 2-3 years. As long as health isn't an issue.

health is always an issue. look at this year and last year

and if we have 18 game seasons, well... let's hope that doesn't happen though.

Sorry, for the Ben Lovers... I am one but:

Big Ben does need to step it up next year. For 14 million a year he needs to be A LOT more consistent. All of last year but with more consistency.

I really think he could be the "street" version of Steve Young but the playoffs were the perfect example of Coaching/ Ben being off. The Steelers played 12 quarters and he showed up for 6...

1,2 vs Baltimore (Horrid... remind you of the Superbowl? It sure does!)

3,4 vs Jets (although we kind of packed it in... he still missed wide open checkdowns and threw high)

1,2 vs Green Bay (Horrid... except for last drive, missed some wide open receivers that 2nd/5 with two minutes left and the RB is sitting all alone in the middle of the field... he throws to double coverage)

I'd start by getting him a new QB Coach. I really don't like the fact that he gained more coaching during his suspension than anything that guy we've never heard of who is the QB Coach.

Stop with the excuses already. He didnt "come thru" in most of the games, the defense did. What if our defense was ranked in the middle of the league instead of # 1 or 2 all year ? We wouldnt even be in the playoffs. How many game would we have won. BR7 didnt do much all year.

Yea I agree we would be just like San Diego with no defense and even the great Rivers a media darling could not get them in the playoffs. BTW didnt Sand Diego have a fair defense.
