Default What about Mike Flynn at Center?

Anybody know what our cap hit would be if we released Mahan??

The Ravens released Mike Flynn, but it seems he still feels like he is gonna play. I say offer him a 2 year deal and play him for 2 years and target one of the top centers in the 2009 draft like Alex Mack to be his successor.

Would be tough to have an ex raven around, but at least he is prove he can play center.

Flynn could be an option.....but oh yeah thats right....our FO would rather roll the dice with a team full of UDFA's ..... (enter sarcastic font) come on dude, we have darnell stapleton on our roster..

Or we could move a G (simmons) who has never played C
Or Colon....yeah lets consider another novice to solve our ills at that position
Or
Or
Or.....maybe, just maybe, we could justifiably hold Colbert accountable for complete mismanagement of the roster

they sit starks for colon....only to trans tag him...making him highest paid player on the team in 08....a year ago you told him, his teammates, all of Steeler Nation that he was a BACKUP!!!!!

Everybody on this sites rips Kendall Simmons relentlessly....Colbert inked him to a 25 million $$$ extension

If the Chin gets back into the coaching game.....he can take Colbert with him

I was thinking of posting this same thing. I think there is a chance we could get him if he cost less than Mahan. Lets see, mahan is on a 5yr $15million contract i think, so this year he probably gets paid around $3mil plus bonus, since he is past a 4 year veteren he automatically gets all of his garunteed money so if we released him we would save around 3 mil but there will be strings attached.

Mahan is a natural guard and it wouldn't hurt to keep him on the roster for depth or potential replacement for Faneca, and then also Bring in a Natural Center.

colbert/rooneys/tomlin = 3 headed monster with equal culpability. im pretty sure the rooneys are looking in the mirror just as much as they did cowher or colbert when examining any roster mismanagement.

its the steelerfans who think our line completely sucks. hell theres people who dont think faneca is worth the money he will get even though he is still regarded as the #1 or #2 guard in the game.

maybe ben just needs to call the adjustments better and put his linemen in better positions to block for him.

I tend to agree that Ben was responsible for at least half the sacks he took last year, but there is no denying that Mahan was whipped often last season and that Faneca and others had to help with double teams on a nose tackle and couldn't help outside on the Tackles.

Yeah, I guess if we bring in a true center then Stapleton is released and Mahan moves to guard and if we draft 1 rookie lineman that will be the 9 O linemen. If 2 rookies are drafted then Kemo, Colon or Essex gets cut in addition to Stapleton.

No doubt tony.....I am just really trying to hold off making any real evaluations of tomlin until the end of next season

colbert on the other hand
weve seen this kind of retroactive thinking from him before

The other issue with Mahan was experience playing with Faneca. I saw a couple times Faneca pass off somebody in a passing situation because they stunted inside and Mahan wasnt expecting it and missed the block. Alan isnt the greatest pass blocker, but he and Hartings worked well together.

As far as completely butchering the RT position in 07....
there is a lot of blood on Tomlins hands
