No, in fact Parrish would be the no. 4 receiver behind ward, santonio and sweed. And yes Gay ahead of Carr. I think the Steelers might not even try to sign McFadden if he gets a ridiculous offer because Gay has really showed a lot and I think the staff would trust him as a starter.

If we're keeping Arian's and Tomlin chooses to make the Steelers a pass first offense, fine, but I want Anguan Boldin! I know it's not happening, but I can always want and hope.

Pretty good, except I don't think there's any way in hell we'll be able to afford extending Harrison, and especially not at his age. So I imagine he and Foote will both still be on the team next year, and the year after that Timmons takes over at OLB and a new guy comes in to replace Farrior as the MLB of the future (or vice versa).

Also, Townsend might be around a couple more years, so I dunno.

If we were going to roll the dice on a fullback in the low rounds, we might as well get Jorvorskie Lane. Who knows if he'll actually be any good, but man, if there's a guy I'd want in the game on third-and-1, you bet it'd be him and not Parker or Russell.

If they can fricking get Colon out of the tackle spot, the line will be instantly and noticeably better.

I highly doubt we fire 2 coaches after a SB win.

Maybe Arians would leave for a head coaching gig or something (ala Wisenhunt), but I don't see us firing either him or Zeirlin.

Other than the Raiders, no one is hiring Arian's to coach anything.

Which is exactly why I don't see Arians going anywhere IF we somehow win it all. But that's a long ways away.
