Do we really need to go through this bs for the 1,000th time? I find it really hard to believe that even you can be this @!#@ing stupid. Not once did I ever say Ward was better than Brown. READ SLOWLY HERE AND TRY TO COMPREHEND THIS AS IT"S VERY SIMPLE. If you don't know the playbook you're not getting a starting spot, it's that simple. THat's all I've ever said despite your feeble attempts to spin it to the contrary.

Now go back under your little rock and play with the short bus folks at stillers.com.

Besides, nowhere is it written that he needs to start or be cut. There's more than two options, obviously. He's a pricey 4th or 5th, but he still has a role to play. Can't see him taking a pay cut, so it looks a little bleak. Could happen, though, especially if he feels he has enough money and just wants another ring.

If Hines does not budge on his contract, then we part ways. Wished he would consider being a WR coach, I think he has a lot to offer in that capacity. Farrior, Foote, Smith, McFadden should be gone. Big Snack and even Big Ben need to restructure their contracts. Ben could sign a new contract to extend it to make him a Steeler until he retires 5-8 years at most. Do something creative like the Colts did with Peyton to free up more money under the cap. Sign Wallace to a fair value contract, if he wants to much then franchise him and/or let him go. I would work to extending Browns contract now, if we gamble and wait he could have another big year and be out of price range like Wallace may be. What about Mendenhall's contract did we just resign him or does he have a new one coming up, if so i do not throw money at him, I believe we have some RBs that can do quite well.
