I duno, if he is offered up to his old pals Wiz and Grimm then I think they would take it. Get a first rounder next year or put a package together with maybe Bryant Johnson and a 2nd rounder. It could be done if they want it to be done

past pro bowls aside, why did the steelers bother keeping him? we shouldve struck while the iron was hot. we couldve gotten better by getting rid of him. now we will be worse off by keeping him.

we can win without him. if anyone thinks hes gonna go out next season and bust his ass for his next contract, theyre kidding themselves. hes playing for himself now (not the team). he'll be playing to not get hurt. i hope his randy moss type efforts dont get ben hurt (again) or willie.

I'm not even worried so much about getting fair value for him in a trade now. He simply needs to move on and take his bad attitude with him. Poor Alan, only gonna make $3-4 million this year. Wonder if it crossed his mind that if he didn't run his mouth about his disatisfaction with Tomlin over Grimm, that he may have gotten a better offer.

This story crystallizes all of the anxieties of the vets that house is being cleaned now that best buddy Cowher is gone - confirms my opinion that after SB XL the only focus the older vets had was landing their next contract, which resulted in the sorry a** 2006 season.

I recognize Faneca wants the market rate for a new contract, but the Steelers are not going to pay that. As for his risk of injury going into a FA year, that's the breaks (no pun intended) - go buy an insurance policy. If he does not go all out and plays to avoid injury it will not prevent him from getting hurt and will only confirm suspicions that he is on the downslope of his career.

Given his public comments, I can only imagine how the private talks are going; it seems as if he is reading from the script Porter was planning to recite if Joey had not been given his release.

It is now clear to even me that the Steelers should have traded Faneca for whatever they could get.

I bet Ward is saying the same things - this team could be headed for a crack-up of a season.

i am with you all on this one.. what really ticked me off is his comment "i do not know how i can be the co-captian of the offense" screw him - it is a bussinese...i was hoping that at least he would give this new coaching staff an oppurtinity. did you see that photo of him looking like a punk a** staring down the new offense line coach. heck i wanted grimm to get the job but he did not, move on everybody knows the rookies will get their contracts first then they will get down to resigning the veterans, man what bummer to start training camp. the selfless **** had no problem cashing his 1 million roster bonus in march.

I doubt we can trade him now,so I say keep him because he will play hard this season to get a nice deal and keep his string of Pro Bowls going.Then we can draft a gaurd next year to replace him or move Mahan to OG.

I agree, there are plenty of teams this time of the year looking to mortgage the future. Anything we get for him is still better than nothing. Cutting him outright would still be better than having him here now. He will cause more harm than good at this point.
