Farriors done in two years? Have you seen him in coverage? If we ride him this year we are asking for trouble.

1. Cut Gay, McFadden, Fox
Gay I don't think will be going ANYWHERE. As bad as he is targeted one on one at most times, he was victim of Rodgers putting the football at pin-point accuracy. He was in position on that T.D ball so that play shouldn't overshadow his rule in the Dime/Nickel, where is excelled at this year. I'd blitz him more often, he was great off the edge with speed so he IS valuable with upside in depth. McFadden might be on his last legs as a starter and Fox is CERTAINLY a goner. No need for him now.

2. Get a safety so ryan clark can stop getting beat
I agree to a certain extent. Clark did a great job and fits the defense in what we ask him to do. Don't get beat deep and come up in the box and hit hard, very hard. With that said, we NEED to groom another safety, we virtually have NOTHING behind Clark OR Troy and that's a concern since Mundy hasn't really taken any steps.

I don't even know what this means.

This obsession with tall WR's needs to go. We got most of our men to groom for the next several years. If you're looking for a big target, how about starting with Limas Sweed? The man deserved another chance and could be big. If not, then we go out and get another "tall" wideout. Personally, I'd like to see a worthy slot man who can get the job done with our underneaths and then turn it into positive yardage.

6. Resign LaMarr Woodley
He'll get his payday he deserves and it WILL be with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

7. Draft a MLB for the future Farrior's done in two years.
We got linebacker hybrids that can man the middle linebacker position. How long will Farrior hold up is the question. I fully expect teams to spread us out more often than not now and that's where Farrior's game fails him. Farrior is solid, but this may be his last season.


Winning #7 will be VERY high on our checklist! Here we go!

I have high hopes for Sly. He will one day replace Farrior.

Yeah, I thought this was the plan...? I think Farrior has one year left and that's it, let Sly get another year under his belt learning Lebeau's defense and then let 'im loose.

He's probably going to get a lot more reps next year and what we've already seen, I'm really excited.

Agreed! This dude was an absolute MANIAC in pre-season! Loved his upside. Sure it was pre-season but the man PLAYED like a STEELER through and through. Was aggressive, ALWAYS around the ball and had a great motor. I can't wait to see him blossom.

I would change the philosophy that style points do matter because when you're stinking the joint out with numerous turnovers all throughout the post-season it does matter.

That's the sort of "style' you don't want to aspire to. And as a "style" it stinks. If I'm Tomlin, I junk that phrase in the bin. It helped the club to a point. But now it appears as if it is their little crutch to lean in that it says that it's ok if things go wrong and look like crap along the way. They won ugly all year long for the most part. That ugly style finally caught up to them and that is not winning football.

We need to add more "commitment" to the RUN, and not these suicidal ARIENS<->BEN inconsistent, and predictable passing plays that on a 50/50 basis amount only to disaster's.
I'm sick of the Steeler's Defense having to constantly mop up after Ben (Ariens) and the Offense.
Ariens is too SOFT n stoopid on our O-Line ! -Ariens has gotta go, but where can we find our perfect O-Coordinator ? -that'll be the real deal.

Need to cut those WR screens out of the playbook, we have the WRs to stretch the field and make a number of catches. I agree also with #'s 2, 6-8
