Default You are the Steelers G.M.

Since it's the offseason and boredom has set fourth I thought we could play a game of steelers cyber general manager. From the start of the offseason what would you have done.
Here's what I would have done.
I wanted Tomlin since october so i'm very pleased of the tomlin hire. I would have hired him.
O.C. I would have hired former Titans and jets offensive coordinator Mike Heimindinger to be the offensive coordinator.
Q.B. coach. Terry shea
D.B. coach. This one is a tough one. I liked darren perry, I would have seen what it would take to keep him.
Special teams coach. Another tough one. I would have gone after jon harbauh

Now I would resign aaron smith and polamalu. I would have released Peezy and would go after T.J. Duckett in free agency.

Since you dont know how the draft is going to pan out. Here are what I would do on the first day. Get a lb,cb and an offensive lineman. In no specific order.

well since the seahawks are rivaling dan snyder in "great moves" and money being handed out, i would hide the jar of vaseline, bend them over, and pump them for all theyre worth, in exchange for alan faneca.

theyve probably learned their lesson, but a responsible gm would atleast offer faneca for this years 2nd and next years 1st.

Well theres no sense in playing GM of the past since there is nothing we can change ... but given the exact makeup of the team right now I would:

1-Go hard after lance briggs.

2-Cut haggans, ced, morey and maybe townsend.

3-Draft: Rd 1- DE, Rd 2- LB or OL or BAP, Rd 3- Big WR or Big RB

if we let go of porter their is no way we can afford briggs without releasing someone else important

i seriously hope u were joking, briggs is asking for over 7 mil a year. haggans is now our best LB, morey is our best and only special teamer, and we are already weak at corner so releasing our wisest one would be idiotic(at least at this stage in our other corners careers). your ridiculous.

this is what i would of done
1. go after russ grimm and make him our O corridinator, he was a great coach.

2.TRADE porter, franchise tag aaron smith, cut kendal simmons,cut najeh davenport,go after tj ducket.

3.Draft: Rd 1-jarvis moss(DE/LB)
Rd 2-FB from Rutgers(he was pretty much their running back.), or corner back
Rd 3-WR
Rd 4-Jordan Palmer(QB from UTEP)

those in glass houses...

do you even know what the franchise tag for aaron smith would be?

why draft leonard in the 2nd when we can possibly get him in the 4th? (probably go in the 3rd)

jordan palmer??? he might be worth a 4th rounder, for a team that actually needs a qb. with batch and ben, we are in as good of shape as any team in the nfl.

right now, duckett is looking to be a 50%+ carry guy. all we need is a guy to carry about 30% of the time to compliment willie. willie is too good to be in a 50/50 split. jeromes last year and the 06 season proved this.

... shouldnt throw stones.

It doesnt really matter what briggs WANTS ... the market has been set by thomas' and porter's contract. Both of which we could afford.

Haggans our best linebacker?!? are you nuts? he had the least amount of tackles out of our remaining starting LB's.

morey?! christ. Tomlin has already announced that he is favor of using more starters on special teams so i don't think that he would be THAT hard to replace. considering he averages maybe what, 3 mins of playing time the whole game?

Duckett ... davenport ... six in one, half dozen in another ... only difference is duckett is coming out of washington where he just got a nice little contract and davenport is pretty cheap. not to mention he just signed a 2yr extension so that point is pretty moot.

Now on to briggs ... who is the absolute perfect fit for a 4-3 weakside linebacker and could easily find a spot for him on the field in a 3-4, not to mention all passing downs.

Townsend provides some nice veteran leadership but you got to give a little to get a little. i would cut ced haggans and townsend to make room for briggs in a heartbeat

Assuming nothing major in FA I would focus on defense first. Maybe DE & Linebacker, then MAYBE cornerback. I think our cornerbacks are better than most people think and have good upside. Then look at O-line, wide receiver and running back based on best available.
