When the NFL announces its compensatory picks this week, don't expect to see the Steelers get any. Pittsburgh seems certain to remain stuck with six picks for April's draft. That was to be expected since the Steelers didn't really lose any significant free agents last year (Joey Porter was cut, which doesn't count).

But if you're a Steelers fan hoping for a big score next year thanks to losing Alan Faneca, I've got bad news. As of right now, the Steelers would be shut out again next year.

To get a compensatory pick, you have to have signed less unrestricted free agents than the number that you lose. That's the problem for the Steelers. While Keyaron Fox, Mewelde Moore and Justin Hartwig are all relatively inexpensive signings, they all were unrestricted free agents. The Steelers have lost only two unrestricted free agents (Faneca and Clark Haggans). So if you're hoping to see the Steelers get an extra pick next year, it's time to root for Brian St. Pierre, Marquis Cooper, Verron Haynes and Dan Kreider to find good jobs elsewhere, to tip the balance. If that happens, Pittsburgh will likely get an extra third-round pick in 2008, but it all depends on signing fewer free agents than the Steelers lose.

St. Pierre and Krieder both found jobs after that was written. So maybe we will get something after all.

I think Kemo is a must signing. He is one of those big linemen that could turn into an absolute beast down the road. Starks could go either way. Too bad Colon is not the UFA because he is a total waste of space. We need to keep the left side intact and concentrate on right side players in the draft or free agency. BMac can be replaced. Washington is a tough one to figure out. I think he has gelled but I seriously doubt he will stay when the bucks beckon. If the FO screws these signings up, we may not sniff the Super Bowl again for quite awhile.

Just what I was thinking

we can do better than kemo at starks at the line. I do hope essex stays as a backup. That tackle/guard availability is good to have

I'll root for nate to drop 1 or 2 meaningless passes in the super bowl. Just to get his stock down and we can keep him
