Either way, Patriots fans are talking to US about humiliation?

Screw that shit.

Maybe it boils down to this:

Emanual Sanders for one year at 2.5 mil (which is about what they paid Foote to back up Farrior or Randel El to return to the team as a 3rd WR)

or take the 2.5 mil and use it to

sign Ahmad Bradshaw if he is healthy or another FA RB who is and
sign a FA WR like Early Ducet or Laurent Robinson if he is free of concussion symptoms.
plus you get the 91st pick in the draft to take up to two WRs in the first three rounds from names below with 40 times.

Tavon Austin 4.28
Cordarrelle Paterson 4.33
Robert Woods 4.42
Justin Hunter 4.36
Terrance Williams 4.48
Quinton Patton 4.48
Markus Wheaton 4.40
Marquis Goodwin 4.21
Ryan Swope 4.28
Steadman Bailey 4.46
Aaron Dobson 4.43
Kenny Stills 4.32
Tavarres King 4.40
Josh Boyce 4.34
Corey Fuller 4.32

Counted 13 more in the top 40 with 4.4 range, then there is all the guys that run in the low 4.5's who are great receivers like Keenan Allen, DeAndre Hopkins, and Da'rick Rogers among others.

The Steelers can afford Sanders but it would cost them probably signing Bradshaw at least until after June 1st. It may cost them a whole lot more in the future to keep him.

Anyone who mentions Super Bowl XL's officiating but doesn't acknowledge how the refs tried to dick the Steelers out of the Divisional Playoff game against the Colts can go to hell. Unless it's an end of the game decision (like the Fail Mary pass), the better team will still, much more often than not, win.

These Pats fans can take a flying leap. Why don't you go comb Tommy Boy's hair instead of creeping around on another team's message board. Dickheads....

Back to Sanders. Let him go. Let's get some new blood for less money. Like others have said, it's a no win for the Steelers. If he sucks or is injured again, you paid 2.5 million bucks for him for one year. If he plays great, he's a FA at end of year and you'll have to pay him big bucks to keep him in a new contract. Take the draft pick that you won't get if you keep him and then lose him.

hey man don't you dare trash such a loyal fanbase such as the patriots. they've all been hardcore fans since 2001 and don't remember who their quarterback was before drew bledsoe. yeah most of them probably used to wear red sox gear to their football games, if they even bothered, but that's because they love the city of boston so much.

That is complete bullshit! They have great fans. I've seen at least 3 Grogan shirts in the stands in the last 12 years. And how about that Jim Plunkett. He was a hell of a player for another team not named the Patriots.
