Default Let's play GM

Holy boring.

In between reading John Madden, oops I mean Harris, articles about how the steelers let go bad old players, but not good old players ... but sometimes let go good players because too expensive ... stating the obvious

... and reading through 50 posts on a back up so and so visiting the steelers ... there has to be a new thread started ... on something ... anything. Let's here some personnel moves that you guys would make:

D. Townsend to FS for a year, hes their smartest DB, and could still play nickel corner. .

Colon to RG.

Simmons/draft pick to C.

Kemo at LG.

Starks/draft pick at LT.

Smith to RT.


Draft a 1st round OT like Chris Williams ... A PASS PROTECTION LEFT TACKLE ... I don't want some fool like gosder cherilus who is just gonna run block like a bull.

Draft a 2nd round CB like Cason or Flowers. (I'd like flowers, I think he's the best CB in this draft, a so-so combine could drop him if teams get enamored w/ #'s ... also given how this is a pass happy league. you need three really good corners)

Ike, B-mac, and Flowers at corners.

Troy and Townsend at safety.

Harrison, Farrior, Foote/Timmons (hopefully more Timmons), and Woodley ... thats a really good LB core.

Kiesel the Diesel and hopefully a draft pick like Kendall Langford in the fourth round or so. ... big snack and hoke in the middle ... Smith on the other side.


That's a really good defense man.

On offense, I'd like to see davenport and wilson cut, and mahan deported.

your thoughts?

your ideas?

if we're the gms do we have to be cheap like the steelers?

in all seriousness, that deshea move to FS sounds good, but only if clark can't come back. but I still expect anthony to succeed him soon

oh, and fire arians!!

hey folks, i went to VT and flowers is a big time pro prospect... his combine performance may have been crappy, but he is a gamer... he thrives in big games, and knows when to step it up. he was a big leader on the team, and i think he could help the steelers' secondary BIG TIME!!

fire b. arians

cut s. mahan

h. miller to center

m. spaeth to #1 te

m. starks as #2 te

more hb options with w. parker

NEVER play 10 yds off of ANY wr

threaten m. tomlin with his job if he doesnt win the sb in the next 3 years.

other than that, make a trade up/down, player/pick if the opportunity presents itself. draft the next devin hester. fire the special teams coach and pay whatever the bears special teams coach wants.

personally i think that with the benefits of tons of cheating, k. colbert may be known as 1 of the finest gm's in the league. i pretty much agree with the majority of the decisions. i do wish we woulda traded faneca, and that our last 2 second round cb's drafted were doing much better.

Miller to center, i dont even know what to say to that. Whether your serious or not you sounded like you were committed to doing that...

I think mahan+wilson=cut, i like simmons at center but i would like for us to draft Branden Albert to play LG and have Kemoeatu to play RG. I wouldnt mind seeing townshend at FS but he is 34 and i dont think he will be here much longer so it is really pointless to move him to safety for a year.

hell yeah! i am SO commited to doing that. i know it will work and solve alot of our problems.

he used to play qb. 30+ lbs added in the offseason and he will have all-pro atheletisizm for the position. he will be a free agent soon and we must maximize his youth, value, and potential.

lets face it. tha burgh isnt known for its tight ends. it is known for its centers tho.

why all the hate for arians?

get used to it, folks...the steelers just opened the vault for roethlisberger - they are NOT just going to watch him hand it off for 2 downs and throw on third. this is the "new" steelers, and they were pretty damn good on offense, and they were NEVER out of a game.

as a gm, i'd say the #1 need is a pass rush on defense. and last year's pick, woodley, may be the solution to that problem. O and D lines need youthful upgrades as well.

i'd also inquire into darrell jackson's availability at wr...
