El ,Oelhoffen and Hope were offered tons of cash after that season and wouldve been dumb to stick around for less. Porter I still love and respect. Faneca was one of my favorite Steelers until his selfish bs. I still respect what he did here but he effd it up by acting like a baby.

I liked Burress until we went to training camp the year before our SB XL win.

He was the ONLY Steelers who did not sign any autographs.

It made me sick because when he walked by back to the lockerrooms, he didn't even look up at the fans...and we were calling his name out like crazy. All the other Steelers at least looked up and smiled or signed.

Talk about him all you want, but I refuse to do that. The guy worked his ass off for years here to become one of the best in the league at what he does.

He was/is on the downside of his career and Pittsburgh simply wasn't going to hand him the kind of money somebody else was, I can't blame him for getting set for life, but you know he has some second thoughts seeing us get our sixth.

No hard feelings, Football is his job and he made the best economical choice for him and his family.

They say you can never fault a man for leaving one job, for a higher paying job. BUT, there have been others to stick around for that last title... or for pride........shot.........ahemmmm...Bettis.....Fan eca wanted the money, fine..... but is money everything....??? I don't know, but the simple fact is he chose to play for a blatently inferior team.... just for the extra cash.... I appreciate what he did...but I don't like him..

I also think Fanecas problem was his guy Grimm didnt get the job. I do have to wonder though if Grimm was the coach would we have tried to resign Faneca anyway?

I saw this on the Jets website thought it was interesting.
Another disappointment this post-season for the Jets' left guard is one of those classic switches, going from one team to another, only to see his old team (Pittsburgh) win the Super Bowl while his new one misses the playoffs. At least Faneca did win a Super Bowl with the Steelers three years before.

"It's tough, but you're excited for those guys," he said. "And I knew so many guys on both sides of the ball there, the coaching staff and guys that played in Arizona. I knew a lot of guys on that field."

In fact, Cards coach Ken Whisenhunt and O-line coach Russ Grimm were Faneca's OC and O-line coach respectively with the Steelers. But still, he said, the decision of whom to root for last Sunday wasn't too hard.

"I was kind of caught between," Faneca said. "But once they started playing, I was pulling for Pittsburgh."

I laugh every day at the idea of Plexico shooting himself in the leg like an idiot and the fact that it happened to another team and not us.
I also laugh at Daniel Snyder having to sign ARE's paycheck every week. I love El but DS way overpaid for him.

If guy leaves a stable company that he knows will do well in the future to pursue a job that PAYS more at a far less stable company, and that company goes under leaving him unemployed, do you feel sorry for the guy?

I don't. He knew what he was getting when he left. He traded winning for $$$.

That's because "Steelers fans are racists."

Good riddance (still), jackass.
