Default the best thing for next season and beyond

...is that the steelers are not in salary cap hell, and have not mortgaged their future to make a repeat run this season. this team will not have to be blown up. we dont have millions of dead money, and we dont have to start from scratch and live through 5 years or so of sucking like we saw from the 49ers, cowboys, ravens, and titans after their time on top.

Staley is the first I'd get rid of.

Definitely a good start. Too bad they didnt get rid of him when there was another team in Pennsylvania willing to take his salary. We probably could have gotten a pick also

the departure of staley, wilson, and hartings will free up alot of money. probably 8 mil. i think we will be out from under jeromes contract, plus the salary cap is due to increase again. the future is still bright...

Sice we are going to get rid of Duce anyway, let's play him in the road games, since Willie can't seem to get it going!

I don't think Duce should start - I have a sneaky suspicion that the coaches were relying on Duce to come back this year and be the grinder, aka Bus, and he let them down big time by showing up out of shape and not at all ready to play. Willie's great as a home run hitter but he can't get you the 3-4 yard runs when everyone knows it's coming. As for Staley, he's lucky he's still on the team at all and wasn't shown the door, Jamain Stevens style. If there's anybody who should play more I'd go with Haynes -- maybe he can develop into the one thing that's been missing this year that we've had almost every year since Cowher took over- a work horse back.

You guys are missing the point. Duce Staley will never ever play football for the Pittsburgh Steelers again. PERIOD. I would rather watch Kuhn average 2.4 yards per carry than watch Duce average 2.6 yards per carry.

Simmons and Starks. Their days are numbered.

The upside to that would be if he has a decent showing the chaces of us getting more for him increase.
Of course the downside is if he has a lousy game you write off his salary to charity.

Start Duce, let him earn his pay check. Damn, I could sit on the sidelines and model sweat suites for about 25% of what he's getting paid to do it. I'd even carry water on the field during time outs!!!!
