Default Re: salary cap

Personally, I'd like us to be able to keep Faneca and Cedric, but if neither is willing (or wants to accept) a paycut then they gotta go. Seems as in most sports these days there is no loyalty to a club - guess a few players could learn a thing or two from The Bus. And a player, playing for the love of the club, rather than a love of money, will give you more more than, what is really a hired mercenary!! And will earn the respec of the fans, who are after all, the people who pay his wages!

First things first - resign Ben...then move from there.

Just my two cents worth.

wilson to get 2 mil
what the hell! he better be gone, I thought it would be nice to have him at least as a backup again, but that's way too much cap space

cut him and get a "tall" receiver in the draft for ben

I liked his trick plays(I know he only did like 2) and having the option to do them with him on the roster, but he's just wasting our cap.

and I don't think he will ever take a paycut, after all we're talking about the same guy that complained much of his career in pittsburgh about not getting the ball thrown his way, only to drop it or be out of position when they did throw it to him

maybe he can join the bungles

Can we get Randle El and Plexico?

One is a tall receiver, and the other will help with the special team issues!

*shifty eyes*

And then we can get Joey Porter cheap from Miami just to help shore up that D......to help stop those late season wobbles!

*extra shifty eyes*

Well Jerome Bettis didn't have much of a choice when it came to restructuring his contract. It was either take a significant pay cut or "there's the door Son". At that point in his career he certainly wasn't a sought after commodity. I'm sure that 3 or 4 teams would have showed interest in signing him to a LEAGUE MINIMUM contract.

I hope that the Steelers keep Cedric Wilson. 2 mill isn't a lot of money for a player of his tenure. I like Ced, it seems as if he always produced when he was given one of his few opportunities. I can't think of the last time that I saw him drop a pass. In my opinion, the dude is a solid WR. If the Steelers don't find a "guaranteed-solid replacement" then I would prefer that they keep Wilson.


By the way 19Ward86, where's Pittsburgh, Ohio?

Ahh now you burst my bubble!! I just like the notion of a player playing for his team, because he loves the Team/City/People, more than an extra million in his bank account.

We all know that never happens much these days, but we can all dream!

Be careful now Steeldude, some of these forum members are VERY sensitive when one criticizes a member of our "3-4 Defensive line". We just don't have the necessary knowledge to understand the responsibilities of a defensive lineman in a 3-4 scheme.

Your perception of Brett Keisel's performance is totally off base. Keisel is not being pushed around, he's actually, 1. Occupying a blocker, 2. Taking care of his responsibility of coverage in the flats, and 3. Containing the running lanes that a mobile QB would otherwise take advantage of.

The lack of stats is insignificant in the case of a 3-4 defensive lineman. We must view them in much the same way that we view that smoke detector on the ceiling.
Although we rarely hear anything from it, it's D A M N well doing its job.

*Omission* The above is not the actual opinion of I. It's a brief synopsis of the very imformative opinions of some forum members in relation to the Steelers defensive lineman.
