Question Who will be let go at end of season?

I know there are many, but here are a few I question off of the top of my head:

Willie - I truly like him and feel that he is a good back who can flourish in a system like Whiz set up for him compared to Arians pound up the middle setup that Wilie is not built for. With no contract extension, being demoted to second string, and Mendenhall shining this season, I don't see him returning.

Jeff Reed - Trouble off the field, and although reliable in the past, missed a few key kicks this year that should have been made. No contract, I see him going too.

Casey Hampton - Great lineman.... of the past few years. This year, in a contract year, hasnt' done much. Ziggy Hood will emerge next year and line shuffled to make up for Ham's departure.

Sweed - I wanted to see him succeed, especially after watching him in college. Unfortunately, I do not see him being with us this year and being given an umpteenth chance to make a statement ont he field. Since they aren't putting him into game situations to get experience, I do see him being dropped and picked up by someone else. I feel that in the future we'll be viewing him as a Antonio Bryant style of player who didn't make an impact immediately but took some time to become a name. Mike Wallace has taken any shot away that Sweed had of becoming an in game WR for the Steelers. He had his shot, and dropped it.

Other names along with thoughts>?

Most of the coaching staff, with the exception of Tomlin, Lebeau, Fichtner and a few others, from what I can see.

Gone: Parker, Reed, Batch, Carter, Logan, Townsend, maybe Spaeth, and of course a good number of the 2nd and 3rd stringers and ST-ers.

I don't see Sweed leaving, and I'm not convinced that Snack is gone, for some reason.

Gone:

Parker -- useless
Spaeth -- useless
Carter -- too old, sucks now
C. Davis -- see: Marc Logan two years ago
Reed -- took a half-step backward, wants too much money
Batch -- Mr. Season-Ending Injury
Logan -- Did not live up to preseason spurt
Hampton -- maybe. could affect our whole defensive makeup. depends on whether LeBeau is ready for it

Stay:

Townsend -- old, but one of the few DBs we know for sure is not retarded
McHugh -- takes Speath's place
Summers -- hopefully has his shit together this year
Sweed -- Not ready to give up yet, and we WILL need a 3rd receiver when Ware retires. Not just a 2nd, remember?

I will throw one in nobody is saying right now, Farrior. He is one of my my favourites but man, the last couple of games he has just looked slow!

I can see Clark being gone after this season he has not played up to his potential. Giving up some big plays down the field seems to be playing out of positon as well.

farrior won't go unless we draft a 1st round linebacker or get a really good linebacker, he calls all the defensive calls on the field he would be a big loss even though he hasnt been playin well, if we dont draft mcclain, he could alternate with keyaron fox on coverage, losing both farrior and hampton would wave our run defence goodbye.

sweed is goin nowhere. Clark will stay, unless the FO draft Berry, Mays or a good saftey, or unless they want to start mundy then he is here to stay.

eric berry will be draft before us and mcclain is a possibility but we also need an interior lineman or an offensive tackle.we can take an another good player in the second round.i hope steelers take some good decisions.
