True... but, I am sure that they would consult their HC.

Also, scratch the Niners, Rams, & Seahawks from the list of possible trade partners (even though, the Rams & Niners have lots of "disposable" picks). They are in the same division.

Yup, looks like the Taperiots win the lottery again. Argh!!!

if we could get Larry Fitzgerald and Stephen Jackson together on our team it would be a dream come true. Please tell me there's a way it could work.

Oh, I love Harrison and Polamalu to death, but I'd cut them in a second if we could get Fitz and Jackson on this team next year.

The reason is our D will be able to move on without those two.

Fitz of course is a long shot but there has to be a move in place. No way we go with Brown a #1 and hope a draft pick develops.

man, Fitz as a Steelers? He would make Brown and sanders great too. they would no longer be called Young Money, they would be called champions.

F the defense with that core at WR.

I like the sound of that.

Are you kidding? Do you think that Fitzgerald would come to the Steelers out of benevolence? What woulld the cost to the team be after next season (have you seen his contract)? Another scenario, lets say we get him and don't win the SBs, do we have a Wallace situation all over again? Some of you folks on this board will turn on a WR in a hot second. Getting him would not guarantee a SB, if that were the case then Ariz would have a few by now,

Some of the trailers of his contract below:

(•$20 million fully guaranteed
•$25 million guaranteed for injury
•Signing Bonus: $10 million
•2012-18 Workout Bonus: $250,000
•2011 Roster Bonus: $8 million
•2012 Roster Bonus: $6 million
•2013 Option Bonus: $10 million
•2015 Roster Bonus: $8 million
•De-escalators for less than 80 rec.)

I was going off of what someone posted earlier: $9.5 million next season, followed by huge years ($20 million). So, Yes, $9.5 million is essentially the same as $10 million for Wallace.

I am trying to figure out your post. It seems that don't like Fitzgersld; you prefer Wallace. Great. I prefer Fitzgerald... but that doesn't mean I don't like Wallace. I just think Fitzgerald is the best WR in the league... but, that's my opinion. We can agree to disagree on that.

Alas, No, merely getting Fitzgerald won't guarantee a Lombardi. But, considering the rest if this team is pretty darn good, adding Fitzgersld would make the team extremely good. Get it?

Lastly, do you really think that Fitzgerald should already have a few SuperBowl with the QBs he's had throwing him the ball??? Not having a QB equals horrible seasons. The one year that he got to the SuperBowl, he had a great QB throwing passes to him. BB is a great QB. Ergo, I'm willing to be that Fitzgersld's odds of winning a SuperBowl vastly increase with BB throwing him the ball (as opposed to Kolb).

I think you misread my post, I like Fitzgerald but can we afford him. He is scheduled to make 9.5 mil next year but there is more $$$$$$$ tied to that figure. If we get him we own the contract and all of it's incentives is my point. I don't think he would make financial concessions just to play for us, do you? If we spend the money and don't succeed. there would be hell to pay with this crew. You feel me?

BTW, Flacco just led a team to a SB win. So, SBs are won by teams with systems that click together. I don't consider him elite but he got the job done this year. Remember, we beat Ariz with a pretty good QB and Fitzgerald.

Got it.

The guaranteed money... I had not considered that. Ergo... the Steelers will just HAVE to win it next year.

Really though, Yes, the guaranteed money changes the dynamics of the $9.5 million base salary. Drat.
