you never get better losing a player like faneca. that doesnt mean you have to get worse though. you would think you would never get better losing a player like webster or dawson either. i think the steelers and willie will just keep on keeping on.

It will be different, but I trust that the Rooney's will find someone capable of filling that void, hopefully it can even be the guard we got in the draft this year, but a veteran that doesn't demand high paying salaries like Faneca would help too.

Likewise here. The Rooney's don't just go out and sign guys they know will just be dead weight as soon as they show up.

I don't even want to think what this team would look like with out Faneca. That would almost certainly mean that we would have to keep Simmons and Simmons is about as garbage as they come. IMO Kemoeatu has the tools to be a successful G for us and could step in at LG or RG and get the job done, but any scenario that has Simmons playing RG is a doomed one.

Not if Mahan is played at guard instead of Center.

First off, I'm back (don't everyone groan at once).

The run game will be fine. The problem (problem?) over the last several years is that Cowher hated changing things up, even when guys like Starks and Simmons had a bead year in 2006 (even Smith and Faneca stumbled a bit, and Hartings was never his old self). So what we got was same-old, same-old, and never saw what our young guys are capable of. We have some guys waiting in the wings who are downright awesome, with Chris Kemoeatu, Trai Essex and Willie Colon. We also added some gifted new guys.

Losing Alan will hurt, but I think only in the short term. This is a team that has a long history of awesome O-linemen, so I trust the guys in the front office to know what they are doing.

Expect to see Alan sitting on his butt at some point this year if he isn't giving it 100 percent. That's just the way Tomlin is, and he has no reason to play favorites with anyone -- especially not Faneca, who has made it clear he doesn't want to be here anymore, anyway.

Amen to that SteelerWatch.

HOWEVER! I don't think Faneca was starting because of favoritism. It might have been because Cowher didn't figure when was the right time to sit him down and start someone else.
