other teams FANS?? who cares what other teams fans say about our players, we have a winning tradition and alan faneca was great this year, but 1 guy does not make up the line. i dont want to hear that faneca is past his prime because he is 31 and the day a Olineman is past his prime at 31 is the day i will do nothing because i dont make garuntees but u see my point.

Exactly, they spend their money wisely. Getting rid of Porter for Harrison, cheapo, sure, but it turned out good. or sorry Great.

FREAKIN' HORRIBLE. And if Sean Salisbury never went to USC then we would never have to hear his opinion.

Memo to Steeler fans. Expect an organic rebuild of the offensive line with the same patience and prudence.

Painfully At least Ben is still very young.

That stupid guard from Seattle getting signed last year for WAY TOO MUCH money by the 9ers ruined our chances at Faneca. He set the bar way to high and some moron will end up paying a great deal more then they should for Faneca. The guy is a great gaurd, but the money he is going to be seeking and will most likely get is just way out of proportion to what we have traditionally spent on our players. Plus, Imagine what we'd have to spend on Ben if we did meet Alan's price. "Hello guys, franchise QB here...what are you paying Alan...yeah...lets negotiate."

Seriously...that just isn't a financial situation we want to deal with.

Do you honestly think Alan Faneca played that well this year to even consider keeping him for the kind of money he will be looking for? He looked like he took off about every 2nd or 3rd play to me. Good riddance if you ask me. The Steelers obviously have to do a major rebuilding of the O-line (Essex TOTALLY blew that 3rd and 7 play in the last game) and keeping Faneca for a high price will not help matters with the salary cap or the new BR contract. I agree we may be in for a major rebuilding project on the O-line and it could very possibly take more than a year or two to do it. It takes awhile for rookies to learn and for an O-line to learn to work together.

Faneca past his prime is another guard hitting his peek. He's the glue for the O-line we all know it. I will say that they should not pay him high dollars fo just a year or two. It would be better to get someone through free agency for 4-5 years. I do hope the sign him though.

really?

If a guard hitting his peak is allowing 2 to 3 sacks in a playoff game... then I don't want any of those guards. I have watched him specifically this year because of what has been going on... and I have not been impressed AT ALL.

Even if he is available, I dont want him.

Glue for the oline? really? You mean that glue that rip on ownership? That glue that through our QB under the bus a few years ago? No thank you.
