Default Another Reason Lebeau Must Go!!!

This Worlids deal is a perfect example of why the steelers talent on defense is dwindling. They are willing to overpay for moderately productive players because they are so afraid to let someone new into Lebeau complicated system.

They fork over big contacts and stick with older players who's better days are behind them (Harrison, Keisel, Hampton, Clark, Taylor, Foote, Farrior) rather than infusing youth to learn on the job.

No way in the world should Worilids get 9+ million for 13 games of production. Good production, but not Demarcus Ware game changing production.

We need to get a D coordinator in here at some point with a system that allows young players to start and get PT early and they can make up for their lack of experience with speed and quickness.

Its not like the defense has been great the last few years, Bogus #1 rankings based on yards but minimal if any splash plays, TO's or sacks.

unreal!

Harrison is gone
Keisel is potentially gone
Hampton is gone
Clark is all but gone
Taylor is all but gone
Foote is all but gone
Farrior is gone

Believe it or not, real football isn't also Madden where you can just draft a perfect class and throw them in to replace your aging players every year. Veterans aren't a bad thing. Who was complaining about those guys' age when they were all impact players? I feel like the Steelers have had a pretty good grasp on when to let declining vets go.

Worilds is getting 9 million not because of his production, but because that's what signing the transition tag dictates. They're still hammering out a long term deal on both ends that should alleviate that cap hit. Sometimes you have to pay for potential. Will it work out? Only time will tell.

By the way, DeMarcus Ware has not had game changing production any time at all in the past two or three years. In fact, he's a candidate to be released by the Cowboys. Instead of making up blatant garbage, perhaps a little research next time will better suit you.

Once again, this isn't Madden. There's not some magic system out there that just easily allows young players to hop in and immediately be among the best at their position. Seattle is the outlier, not the mean. Speed doesn't mean shit if you don't know where you're supposed to be on defense.

The only disastrous mistake the Steelers have made since the Super Bowl era of football is not drafting the kid who played at Central Catholic, Pitt and wanted to stay in the PA. So, its hard to compare that to signing vets too long.
