I said Eason, but I really think we're done signing our castoffs. The Steelers need a back who can pound out a 3rd and 1, not FWP (as much as I love Willie), Ziggy gives the Steelers depth at DE, and I'd like to see them either go with a rookie or one of the young bucks on the roster. But if they DO bring back a DE, I think Eason would come the cheapest and be the best value. Deshea couldn't beat out Gay last year, and he hasn't gotten any better with another year under his belt.

For your poll's purpose I voted for Travis, but honestly I expect the FO and Coaching Staff go for young blood in the draft

I voted for Kirschke but I want to change that to Eason. Because Eason is the younger player.

I think Parker will be back. He's got no love from other teams. I think hed be a suitable back up for us.

Townsend always seems to make the team when you least expect it, which is why I chose him.

I'm pretty sure one or the other of Kirshcke or Eason will be gone, especially if Harris solidifies himself as a prospect worth hanging on to. Maybe both will be gone. We basically carried one too many DLs for a lot of the season, and with Smith coming back, there's an added squeeze.

Stapleton sucks and I'm sure we're over him.

Same with Parker, although now I'm worried that if everyone else passes on him because he sucks, we'll default to re-signing him because hey, he's cheap. Remember, FO, a cheap piece of crap is still a piece of crap.

I voted other. I think we will trade Ben for Kuhn and when Kuhn comes back to Pittsburgh, he'll give his cleats to Dennis Dixon, which will allow him to play all world, and all will be well again in Steel Town.

Thanks, now I will be singing/humming that song to myself for the rest of the day.

As for the poll, I picked Townsend. Although, I would not be suprised to see one of the DEs back. I do not think Willie will be back. RBs have a very short shelf life in the NFL, and the Steelers would be better off with a mid round rookie as a back up. The only way Willie comes back, IMO, is if Mendy suffers a serious injury, and Parker is still available.

How about that dude that was the 280 lb. fullback (I forget his name)? Then we'd really be rollin' sweet.

I object to this poll on the basis that "The Patriots Suck and Tom Brady is Gay" is not an option...
