Default List a concern(s)

As the thread title states, if you have any concerns with this team going into this upcoming season I'm curious to hear what they are.

Chemistry

Bettis being gone concerns me, because I think everyone held themselves in check a little tighter in his presence. I don't want to hear about personal issues, I want them to stay together as a team in their heads first & foremost. This thing about Hines, there being a legitimate WR war in training camp, new chemistry in the secondary, the old rumors about players not liking Big Ben, him establishing himself as the leader..... I just hope everyone emerges on the same page.

Very good point.

I have two...

First, the frame of mind. Last year they had "One for the thumb" and "Bring Jerome Home" to ride on. What now?

Second, the HB position. Duce Staley staying healthy concerns me. If Duce goes down, that could put our RB situation in a bad position.

Depth at rb, and health at RB.

And the safety position, from what I`ve read we sort of upgraded, but only time will tell.

1) Duce Staley

2) The media givin us no credit as usual

3) Other franchises consistently attemptin to block us fans from away games.

exactly what i was thinking, im so sick of hearing that manning is soooo good, yeah he is good but until he can overcome the pressure the postseason brings he isnt gonna have a ring any time soon, just like when he could not beat florida in college.

Agreed. My roommate was givin me the biggest argument the other day about how Manning is the best QB in the league. Then I said if that is so then why can't he win playoff games. He chokes. Then he said he is the best regular season QB. I still think that Manning is made to look good because of what James did and his receiver core. As soon as we broke through his O-line one play after another he crumbled like the walls of Jericho.

Default Re: List a concern(s)

My concerns with this team are few.... the most prominent for myself are the very large decisions that the front office are going to be faced with over the next 12 months.
-Ike Taylor, Joey Porter, Troy Polamalu, Willie Parker, Aaron Smith are all approaching contract situations
-Who they choose to sign....Who they choose to let walk....How much they pay the guys that they keep....etc.

When I look at our roster, its talent level, its depth, the amount of talented players under the age of 28/29 we have, a hall of fame coach/staff, our 23 yr old QB with a 27-4 record to go along with a ring.......This could be a dynasty, IF the Cowher, Colbert, Ronney and company push the right buttons.

It will be interesting if they attempt to address any of these contractual situations before the season. Ike Taylor's contract is one I would love to see handled sooner rather than later...IMO Troy P must be treated as a guy that the franchise is commited to keeping a Steeler for at least 5-6 more yrs....I have read on a few websites and other publications (obviously these are just opinions of god knows who) that the Steelers might have a big name cap casualty during training camp.... I sincerely doubt that but stranger things have happened...
