You may be joking, but I think you are right.

I think the Steelers knew they weren't bringing Santonio back because they new he was going to get a suspension.

I agree, I also think ARE may have been told something on the side. That we may have a issue with holmes smoking it up. You will have a shot at #3. I'm guessing they knew before yesterday.

Granted he probably didn't have many other offers on the table, lol

I think Mike Wallace is up to replacing his misbehavior. I also think ARE is capable of replacing MW's rookie production (50 v 39 recs) with the exception of the YPC. I don't think Hines will be any less "Hines". So we should be "OK". If Sweed steps up, well...

Default Re: ARE was right

The only issue I see is, most D's dont have 3 solid cover guys. Which is what was required last year to shut our passing game down.

holmes
ward
wallace(getting the weakest of the 3 coverage players

We don't have the same dominating threat this year now, because wallace will get the top cover guy. Big difference.

Cancer or no cancer. 1 year deal for TO even if he put up wallace numbers he will be a happy camper. more than likely he would do quite a bit better in our set. I would hate to blow a top 3 round pick on a WR when its deep enough to cover several need positions, before today of course, lol

I think the Steelers may have known at the time that they were most likely not gonna bring him back and then when this stuff happened to Holmes again it was the final straw for him. He was gonna be wanting too much money next season anyways, but a 5th round pick is a Total Steal for the Jets

I've always been a TO fan. He works hard and has high expectations, unfortunately his mouth is just as big. He wasn't a problem in Buffalo last year, I doubt he'd be a problem for the Steelers, not this late in his career. I'd rather have a proven TO than waste a draft pick on an unknown. They only need him for a year, and he will probably retire if there is a lockout in 2011.

I said this in the other post. I think they knew something was up. Signing 2 FA WRs in addition to what we have was a lot. Yeah, Arnaz Battle is going to be on ST's but still a lot of WR's to carry on the roster.

ARE will be fine in the slot/#3 WR but he is NOT a #2. He's good for depth.

Heath Miller will probably have more targets. They cannot ignore the OL in the draft. Balance out the run and we'll be fine.
