I completely agree. There is a reason they are keeping Duce, or is there?

It's that "healthy" thing that has been his main problem. He can't stay healthy. Sorry, but unless someone can see something that we can't, it's time for Duce to fade into retirement.

My Prediction: Duce comes out of the woodwork to make a key play late in the season... in the redzone.

ok... Time to get back to drinking again.

Seriously though, I would like to know the reason for keeping him on the roster. Is there something on his contract that is preventing the Steelers from releasing him? Maybe a huge lump payment if he is released early? (I don't know much about NFL contracts, is that possible?)

There were so many of us that wanted him gone at the end of last season, but I don't know if it was possible contractually. All I know is that I'm also so sick of seeing him there on the sidelines. As far as giving the guy a chance, I see where you're coming from, but Duce has had plenty of chances and has proven to be nothing but a crystal figurine - a very, very expensive crystal figurine. Why not give that chance to someone else? After all, our coaching staff excels at finding RB talent.

That was my exact opinion heading into this season before he came into camp looking like he came off a two year twinkie binge and it reflected on the field.

Zero discipline if you ask me.

I think Cowher generally knows what he is doing in terms of personnel decisions, so you'd have to imagine that Staley will play a part later this year.

The Steeler running game hs been pretty good on the whole, so I dont think there is any real need to activate Staley at this point - however, if Fast Willie was to pick up an injury then Cowher probably believes that Staley would be in a better position to step in than anyone who is available is a free agent.

At this stage of the season there is probably little value to cutting Staley, because there is very little of value in the free agency market.

Exclamation Re: TOWEL BOY MUST GO..

I guess Cobbs must not be available anymore... what happened to him when we released him anyway? I would just like to see us have someone in Staley's spot that can contribute.. like Quincy Morgan to return punts atleast.. something other than just stand there on the sideline waiting on your weekly check for Nothing..
