I believe that guy is in the draft, and I think the Steelers already know who they want at 15. I think there's an outside chance they draft Carriker and go with more 4-3, but I really think they will draft one of the DE/OLB types. So here goes, I say;

G. Adams , if available at 15
A. Spencer , which will be there at 15 or
J. Moss , who will be there also at 15

A DE/OLB offers the most versatility now and for the future, and I think anyone of those guys can play now. I don't think we will go after anyone to fill that spot in FA. I think our 2nd round pick will be a LB also.

they cost a lot, it is hard to retire in PITT. all those linebackers were sweet but just got too expensive, the salary cap is screwing teams. we have no expensive players yet we have almost no cap. our highest paid player is i think alan faneca and he gets like 42 mil over 7 yrs. dont quote me on that.

It's not the salary cap that's screwing teams - some times (PIT and NE come to mind) just don't like to pay up. Doesn't make them bad teams, that's just how they operate. On the opposite end of the spectrum, teams like Washington and Dallas overpay for questionable talent, and it never helps them win either.

It's going to be that out of the blue, from behind the curtain, 3rd - 5th round pick that no one has on the radar but somehow the Steelers knew about him!!!

Then it will be SUDDEN IMPACT on a Special Teams play, then an injury that sidelines a starter for a few plays, and then squeeze him into the dime and nickel package, and then a force to be reckoned with every Sunday!!!

I like Tim Shaw from Penn State, Oklahoma's Rufus Alexander, and Brandon Siler from Florida.

I'm gonna throw out a name that's under the radar & he'll most likely go undrafted...

Clint Session, LB from Pitt

James Harrison has looked very good in limited action.

James Harrison is ready to take over for Porter. Harrison will bring it on every down. I'm not too concerned about him filling Joey's shoes.
