Default Day dreaming...do the Steelers have a shot at Fitzgerald?

I recall hearing earlier in the year how Larry Fitzgerald wanted out of Arizona due to the team's sudden change in fortunes. Isn't he a Pittsburgh product? Do you think Pittsburgh would do something so insane/great as to wrench him out of there somehow? I think it would be a brilliant move. We all know that Hines is getting long in the tooth and Fitz would certainly make a great heir apparent for that position.

I don't know I'm just day dreaming here...must be the painkillers I'm taking from having a tooth pulled.

I'm hoping this could be a Jerome Bettis-type move. He still remains the last big name free-agent we were able to acquire and we all know how that turned out. The problem is, we're pretty good at receiver as long as Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown keep playing like they have been and we have much bigger needs on the offensive and defensive line. If we grab a free agent, it's most likely coming from those positions.

it will never happen. i would love to have him over any other WR in the NFL but we cant pay someone like him especially when we are already stacked at that position. if were going to get a high priced free agent it needs to be a corner or OL

And we can hire Brad Childress as receivers coach to coach Fitzgerald

He's a Minnesota kid. He only went to Pitt because he knew he'd get a ton of balls thrown to him in that Walt Harris pass happy offense. At least that's what he said years ago.

I'm sure he grew fond of the Burgh while he was here, but Arizona won't give him away and I don't think we'd want to trade the assets necessary to land him since WR isn't a huge need. We need CB's OL's and some young D-Lineman way more.

I agree Pete, a high priced WR doesn't do you a lot of good if you don't have time to throw to him. I'm curious to how well W. Gay finishes out the season. He seemed so promising coming out of Lville and has been a disapointment this season.

Absolutely correct! What is this obsession with free agent WRs around here? WE DON"T NEED ANOTHER WR!. As Pete said we need a corner and O-Line far more. We also need more D-Line as well. WR is not a need.

Anybody see Emmanuel Sanders or Antonio Brown show some signs of our future lately? I did. Fitzgerald would come with such a huge price-tag that Pittsburgh wouldn't even bother throwing their name in the hat. We got guys to groom to become their own Fitzgerald's one day.

Though I love Larry, I'd rather they concentrate on getting the OL and defensive backfield plugged up than bring in a veteran wr. I know Hines isn't getting any younger, but between Wallace, Sanders, and Brown i think we have the nucleus of a good receiving core going foward. .
