Default Randle El finds closure

good luck to ya el. it was fun while it lasted.

"I'm always going to have time for Pittsburgh," Randle El said. "The Rooneys always tell me, 'Once a Steeler, always a Steeler.' It means a lot to be back here."

Living in the heart of "Redskinland" I just can't find it in my heart to wish Randle El good tidings.

He doesn't realize it yet but El has joined one of the few teams in the league that is going to be held hostage by mediocre Quarterback play with Mark Brunell and he'll regret not having Ben throwing to him.........and enjoying his once thriving role in Pittsburgh.

I hope the are a comfort for you Antwan.

I can't blame the guy for taking the money, but I don't see him making the highlight reel too often over there. Randle El's not a the no. 2 receiver he thinks he is, and his punt returns usually left something to be desired.
I think the Redskin's will ruin him by asking too much of him.

Randle El is a good person. I actually had the chance to meet him. He is a very nice guy. I also had a friend that played basketball with him when they both went to I.U. So I wish him the best. Also he couldn't pass up the money that he was offered from the Skins. No person in their right mind would do that.

But I will say this El is replaceable. He isn't a number 2 reciever. He is a slot guy. His skills for gadget plays will be missed. But the Steelers have more then enough talent on offense to make up for El.

El will be missed most as a punt returner. He did set the Steelers record for most punt returns for a TD in a career with 4. But with the drafting of Willie Reid I think we will be more then just alright on punt returns. Reid broke Deion Sanders punt return records at Florida State. So Reid could prove to be better then El as a punt returner.

i think willie reid is a more natural punt returner than el. el was a qb first with exceptional running and receiving skills. he was a little out of position as a returner (as good as he was). reid should be an upgrade eventually.

The Willie Reid pick makes SO much sense... At first I was kind of confused, but now it seems like a perfect pick
