The Patsies may rack up draft picks but their drafts suck. They seem to want to keep trading those picks during the draft but never do anything with them. They just pile up picks for the next year that they trade in the next draft. What they do seems ludicrous to me. Without Brady on that team they wouldn't come close to breaking .500 or sniffing the playoffs with the horrid drafts they keep coming up with.

Honestly...How good do you think we are without BR 7? 8-8?

That's exactly what I was thinking. Tom Brady to whomever receiver is all I see when it comes to big plays. I haven't even heard one big name of a RB from their team.

Yes, also, their defense is visibly suffering. Lol, lets not cry over it though!

A team would get Wallace for like 4 mil per year and Wallace would be stuck playing for that unless he can refuse to sign that. By refusing he must play for the steelers at around 3 mil.for one year, which would be ironic but bad in the long run as he would become an UFA the next year and we would lose him and not get anything but a compensatory pick in return. One of the negatives for Wallace is the offer from another team is non negotiable.

Patriots could be outbid by a team overpaying Wallace. San Francisco and even Chicago a more desperate team for a wideout could make crazy offers to Wallace. New England won't break the bank in regards to Wallace or anyone not named Brady.
Bonuses are prorated, so Steelers could easily match that offer.

Who have we "lost" well,

Steve Courson, 50, was killed outside his Farmington, Pa., home in November while trying to remove a 44-foot tree from his property. The former guard was crushed while apparently trying to save his dog, after a gust of wind changed the direction of the falling tree. His black Labrador retriever was found alive, tangled in Courson's legs.

In March 2005, David Little was bench-pressing weights alone at his Miami home when the coroner determined he suffered a heart arrhythmia, causing the 46-year-old former linebacker to drop a 250-pound barbell on his chest. The bar rolled across his neck and suffocated him.

Terry Long, 45, an offensive guard whose eight-year career was derailed by a positive test for steroids, committed suicide in Pittsburgh in June 2005 by drinking antifreeze. Twice divorced, he had serious legal problems stemming from his failed food-processing business and had made two previous suicide attempts.

The youngest of the Steelers to die was 36-year-old Justin Strzelczyk, a tackle who had a series of run-ins with the law after he retired. He died after a 40-mile, high-speed chase on the New York Thruway in September 2004. Driving his Ford F-250 pickup at speeds in excess of 100 mph, Strzelczyk made obscene gestures and tossed beer bottles at the police following him. The chase came to a fiery end when, while on the wrong side of the road, he slammed into a tanker truck.

Very sad and tragic. Just a little earlier in the year that he died, Steve came to my school and was a guest speaker. He was full of life and energy and proposed a strong message. He really seemed to enjoy life and had a knack at pubic speaking. He really connected with his audience and relayed his message nicely. If I remember correctly, it was about taking care of your body and not abusing steroids or any other type of drug, the life he had walked.

Was pretty weird to learn sometime later he died while being crushed by a tree while saving his dog. Sad story.

I am unsure about Wallace, but with the Rooney saying Wallace was the number one priority and after Ward was released today, I dont see why everybody thinks we will lose him. Its the one player recently that the owner has spoke out about keeping, I am sure we at least have a solid shot at keeping him.

A Roster Bonus I believe is not pro-rated so that is why the Steelers would not be able to match it and that is what poses the most danger for the Steelers.

Pats qb position isn't hard at all. 8 seconds in the pocket to throw a ball 7 yards. As long as they have a Solid line they'll be successful with or without Brady. Cassel went 11-5 not playing a down since highschool.

Defenses just need to learn how to stop that dink and dunk shit. If they get a legit deep threat like Wallace to stretch the field, their offense will be unstoppable. It almost already is.

Even though I hate the pats with a passion I think they draft well. They'll keep letting those picks roll over until they have enough to trade up 3 times in one draft or own the whole thing all together. Then we'll have another 15 years of listening to how great these scumbags are.

We went 15-1 with a rookie Ben, and I think we are something like 6-2 or 7-2 or something without him since then. What were you thinking? Did you think the Steelers suck, but have a god-like QB?

But they really don't draft that well at all, especially not the last five or six years. So far as I can tell, they are getting one starter and one decent backup out of every draft, which is what even the worst team in the league gets (if they want to save face, that is).
