Default Limas Sweed

i think that Limas Sweed deserves a chance to show Steeler Nation what he can do. thats why the Steelers should either release Washington in favor for Sweed or move him down the depth chart. what do you think abut this.

i agree. Sweed is a great weapon. but he REALLY needs to work on some fundamentals and get his chops ready if he's going to be seeing more playing time.

Washington was a great Steeler and if he goes he will be greatly missed. but you always need the next big stud to help get you to the bowl game, and like i said, if Sweed works on his game...he can do it.

i'm ready to see all the Rashard Mendenholics burn up the Steeler Nation next season too. =)

I'd like to keep Washington if possible and have Sweed do some time on kickoffs and punt returns.

I think Sweed will be a weapon he just needs time like Burres did.Mendenhall I think will be a weapon too....time will tell or next season will tell.

they CAN utilize him...and they SHOULD. like i said, a great weapon. but he needs time to develop. he's got the gully to return some kicks. he reminds me of Randel El for sure.
