Default joey porters knee

there were grumblings that when porter had his surgery right before mini camps that he was unhappy about his contract and all that bs.

"how could he wait so long to have surgery?" tell me hes not thinking about repeating, just like he stated at the sb parade and nothing else. looks like he will be back stronger than ever and let the chips fall where they may after '06.

thats what a leader does and this article just proves what a leader he is.

I love Joey. I have no doubts in my mind he will be ready and won't let his contract effect his play. I want the Steelers to resign him. But with Troy and Ben needing to be resigned. Plus when you factor in that Joey is getting closer to 30 and how the Steelers always find LB's for their 3-4 defense. I really don't see Joey being resigned.

I really do love Joey Porter. He is a true team leader and I would hate to see him go, but I do think we will probably be unable to resign him. Especially with Troy and Ben's contracts coming up. It's a shame if we would lose him, but I would rather keep Ben and Troy.

Yup Not looking good to keep Porter, Great Beast on the Defense but age is catching up.
Knee's are getting older. I also would rather resign Ben and Troy....Sorry Porter.

The first thread here that breaks my heart. I want us to keep Peezy, but for that to happen, he'll need to work with them a little bit. Dare I say, though, that the Steelers might step-up a little to retain a player who helped make that difference between excellence and Champion.

I'd like to see him remain a Steeler for life, feel he deserves it.

I understand that....And it was hard for me to write that....I guess what i was trying to say is that sometime....to me....it seems he could have made more plays...... Guess i expect too much from him....?

How can you say that? Here's some of his stats over the past 2 years:

Sacks - 17.5
INT's - 3
FF's - 7
Passes Defended - 16

Those are pretty good numbers for a LB. And just so you know he has as many forced fumbles the past 2 years as Ray Lewis has for his whole career.
