WHY THE HELL DID WE SIGN WILLIAM GAY!!! He's horrible! Dennis Dixon needs to go, I'd be happy if they could trade him just for a decent nickel corner, the guy WILL NEVER be a starter on the Steelers and I rather take my chances with Batch and Leftwich then Dixon. O line got pushed around by the Skins, that's not good, but it's not like anybody was playing 100% anyway. I was really happy with Brown and Redman also, I think if they have the kind of years that I'm expecting them to, that they will be in Pittsburgh for a while. Especially Brown.

I agree on cutting smith we need this money else where. Ziggy is solid enough to start. I Think the o line will be an issue this year. like it has every year but ten times worse.

100% agree with all your points.

On a side not Dixon will not make this team this year if he keeps this up, he was terrible.
I thought Morty Ivy and Ryan Mundy played very well.
I have to say with the young corners i expected none to step up even though i was hoping i would be wrong. However, I thought Warren played pretty well, better then Lewis and Butler. IMO

Let's hope Ben doesn't get hurt because there is absolutely no one behind him. Lefty sucks. Batch is done. Dixon needs to be cut. They need to look for a semi-serviceable backup QB or the Steelers are dead if Ben goes down. And don't tell me Batch is the answer.

I said this the other night in a previous post...they should have made an offer to kevin kolb...if the offer was good I do believe he wouldnt have turned down playing for the steelers even though he still would have been a backup!!

I would be surprised if sanders and brown don't both surpass hines on the depth chart by the end of the year. Brown showed a lot of speed and good hands. He has starting potential and sanders showed us last year he is ready as well. I hope hines can take a bettis type approach to his last couple of seasons and not let his ego get in the way of developing these young guys. I can't help but like our depth if we have 3 young guys starting the next several years. We could be set for a while at WR

As i recall, a few on here were saying Gay is the man...I guess he proved them wrong!

Yes, Dixon wears #10, but at this point, he is nowhere near the quarterback that Kordell was.

The reason why Dixon will stay is he can move...If BR7 goes down..Batch and Lefty will be on the ir 2 weeks later...No Statue QB can survive with this line.

Other than QB ..Sitting the bench does nothing for a number 1 pick....Play them!
