Who knows what kind of person Gibson was in the locker room and outside of football.
Maybe they got rid of someone before he became a problem.

We may never know.

I'm not high on Mays or Morey either.. so I think we should give Washington a shot.

Plax leaving wasnt that big of deal. But now I am not at all sold on our wr corps. This may be a weak link overall for us.

I'm glad someone else noted that Mays is indeed over 6 feet tall. Someone earlier in the thread said we didn't keep anyone over 6. I thought Mays was taller but only confirmed it later by looking in my media guide. I still am not that impressed with him. Generally, though Cowher, Colbert, et al have been right about moves. I especially remember I thought they were idiots for letting go of Levon Kirkland and for signing Kimo. Let's see what happens.

It could be if someone doesn't take the heat off Hines.

Yeah I still am wondering about that myself BB2W. I know Mays knows the system, but he never really impressed me. Mays supposedly also has a significant injury. Hopefully we can get Gibson on the PS.

Mays has never impressed me but neither had Gibson. I did however see Gibson half assing it on a crossing route at the end of the Carolina game. I think even the announcers pointed it out. If he was doing that when he knows this is his last shot to impress the coaches, then that tells alot about his attitude.

I am glad they kept Washington however.

I did not catch that Da Boot, but I'm sure that Bill Cowher noticed it big time. You are right knowing that is his last shot to catch their eyes and he runs his route like that. That kind of thing definitely won't sit well with the coaches. Also like you I was happy to see Washington make it. He really was a pleasant surprise for the Steelers.
