The problem with Plax was that he always turned the routine catches into risky adventures. He might have fit in better with the high-stakes gambling approach that we've been pursuing over the past few years, but now we're looking for a more reliable offensive effort.

And MasterOfPuppets has great wisdom - there's a lot of young talent out there, just looking for a chance.

Serendipity. . .
...after dropping how many key third down passes--no thanks. He was a liability in his prime, now he would be an old liability.

I'll never forget his rookie year he makes a huge like 30-40yd catch across the middle, rolls on the ground and pops right up, untouched, and what's he do? SPIKES the god damn ball.

Yep, for a touchdown the other way. It was in Jax, and I was there. My wife had to remind me that we already had the game in hand. But the thing is, he didn't learn from it. He did it again the following year, only instead of spiking the ball he spun it on the turf. ...and then he only catches the highlight reel passes--not just no, but.... He is not, and never really was a Steeler.

It wasn't his production that got him ran off the first time, the FO didn't like the influence he had on Big Ben, and given Ben's "problems" I doubt they would bring him back to be an influence on Ben again.......personally I wouldn't mind Heath being in on four and five wide sets ......(that is if we ever run those again, cause who knows what Haley has going on) Heath has the best hands on the team bar none.


P.S. First Post and GO STEELERS

For the record, Plaxico spent the whole day visiting with the team at training camp last year and had lunch with Tomlin, Colbert, and Rooney. They wined and dined him and made him a contract offer. They wanted him, and they will want him again if it looks like Wallace will sit until week 11.

Good. People act like they think Plexiglass would be bad for a Steelers offense that was horrendously poor in the red zone the past two years.

He almost caught 50 passes as the #2 receiver on a BAD passing team. He's a bigger red zone threat than Mike Wallace because he...

1) has better hands than Wallace
2) draws a double coverage in short yardage because of his size. Wallace, on the other hand, does not draw double coverage in short yardage because he's and average route runner. Means Antonio will get doubled. Or Cotchery. Or Miller.

I'm sure people will have facts to argue those two points.

Plexico might not be an upgrade to Wallace, but I'd sign him in a second if he wanted to be here for less than what Mike Wallace is asking. He brings VALUE.

Only if Limas Sweed turns them down.

I hear Sweed will sign if he can get the same contract deal as Antonio Brown received - no confirmation whether the Steelers are talking a multi-year or one year deal with Sweed - but no denial either - sounds serious to me.

plex will not accept the role or the $$$ the team would offer and i assume the team wants to waste no time w/ him using them as a bargaining chip.

Limas Sweed wants the same money as Brown???? Haven't heard this one, but I'll take your word for it...the last I heard of Sweed was he struggled in a try out for the Giants.
