Default What's going on with Staley?

Looks like this could be the last week for Staley to prove himself. Hard to believe though, with our perceived lack of depth... unless they really love Kuhn.

I`m not on Staleys bandwagon, but if he reamins a Steeler, which I don`t think he will, but if he does I will root for him like I would anyone wearing the Black & Gold. I would like to think that we can do better than him.

While watching the game Friday night I beat the follwing statement about Staley to death,
"I don't see how they're going to keep him" "I don't see how they're going to keep him."
Staley is running as if he's arthritic in the hips. I totally support keeping John Kuhn over Staley.

We should start a petition to get rid of Staley.

Let's let the coaches do their job. Support them with the decision until it proves to be the wrong one. Maybe Staley's just taking it easy during the games and saving himself for the regular season.

Now, with that in mind, I do like the way Kuhn's has been running and would like to see him have a role in the offense but again, it's not my decision and as part of Steelers Nation, my job is to support the team...like a marriage....through the thick and thin of it!

Whether we believe it or not...coaches don't always make the right decisions.

I heard that! Cowher makes more right than wrong descision, but all coaches make tons of mistakes. Your + - ratio just needs to be good

If he is doing that, he's going to relax himself right out of a job. Pre-season wins and losses mean absolutely squat, but this is the time when the players are competing for a position - Cowher and his coaches aren't just going to hand Duce a roster spot - he has to earn it, which thus far, he hasn't done, imho. I'm still giving him the benefit of the doubt here and am hoping he redeems himself in the Panthers game, but if we still see what we've been seeing thus far out of Duce, bring in the hook - that's all folks!

I was trying to lie to myself to make me feel better about Staley's lackluster performances thus far in the pre-season.
