That's the record for the Steelers in this entire decade so far. 3 AFC Title Game appearances, a Super Bowl Championship, and only ONE losing season, but...

The Steelers FO must be doing something wrong according to this guy. Why oh why can't we compete? Woe is us.

So why post something from another forum that is a total garbage forum. That forum has 50 threads of the same subject at any given time taken up the entire front page. There mods do not combine post worth a crap our even take care of that forum well at that matter. There forum is junk and badly coded, post a reply are thread and sometimes takes 15 mins just to see it pop up. Start your own thread about the subject and not some other thread maker from another forum. And you have tools on that board who are not real Steeler fans and start arguments acting like one. At least around here if there not a Steeler fan they act like a Fan of the team they follow. I have seen some of there kind come here and try to start multiple threads of the same subject to clutter the board but we have good mods here. Bring something legit next time not some garbage from a worthless forum over there.

Just another whiner complaining how the "Rooneys are too cheap" to play in FA. If he wants a big FA spender, he needs to start rooting for the Skins. Moving along now....

Every year around this time some "fans" of this team do the exact same thing. They moan about how we don't go out and start spending big money on FA's.

For some reason they have problems grasping the fact that the Rooney's are not big FA spenders. Do they think the Rooney's are going to turn around and take the Dan Snyder approach? Give it a rest and let them do what they have been doing for decades.

Just posted this elsewhere, but seems apropos: The Steelers won Super Bowl 40 with 19 of 22 starters either drafted or signed as undrafted FA's.

Free Agency is VASTLY overrated, and ridiculously expensive...

if you whine about the steelers and the way they do business in the free agency period, why would you even be a fan for this team? thats the way they have always done it, do it that way now, and always will. thats a big part of who we are! let them other suckers overpay free agents.

haha what a joke. knock on another steeler forum??? maybe if he had brought some garbage from a bengals or browns forum i would laugh a little bit. but it seems like a legit concern to be worried when one of the best teams in the league just got A LOT better ... and i mean a lot. If i had to guess right now ... being a realist ofcourse (something that may seem way out of line for a steeler fan of YOUR calibur) ... the patsies would give us a nice little butt kicking ... brady would eat our secondary alive. we wouldnt be able to get a consistent rush on him, and our offensive line would looked like a special olympics circus trying to figure out where the hell adalius thomas is at (a little exagerating on everything but might not be far from the truth). ... oh and they have two first round draft picks.

touche my fellow steeler fan.

This is the year that ben has gotta come out and be an elite QB. Has to. I think the steelers are banking on a lot of player development (like we most always do.) esp. from the 2nd/3rd/fourth year players ... mcfadden ike, a. smith holmes. ... but mostly big ben. If he doesn't seperate himself from the boys this year then i don't know if our defense will be good enough to carry the team like it has as of late.

and on top of that ... I think next year we will be absolutely loaded in cap room. so a move on getting someone like lance briggs (a la the patriots getting adalius thomas for THEIR 3-4 scheme), could be the best move all FA if it happens to be the year we have more of a 4-3 look.

... ofcourse this is all just hypothetical but I think that some of the biggest FA moves the steelers have ever made have definitly been among some of the most successful.
Kevin Greene (no explanation needed)
James farrior (probowler with the steelers)
JEROME BETTIS (uhh ... hall of famer??)
Jeff hartings (probowl)
... now sure there are some moves/signings that have produced nothing more than a perrenial backup, but for the most part, the bigger signings that the steelers tend to make work out very well.
