Ed.B. of the P-G on why Clark was not the answer to the TE problem

So why werenít the Steelers interested in Clark, at least enough to get in on the bidding?

Because, they donít need another wide receiver, and that is what Clark is, no matter what they want to call him. He doesnít block, not like a tight end anyway. The Steelers donít need a 34-year-old wide receiver who calls himself a tight end.

Kevin Boss sounds promising, at least he has a cool last name...

Sup Boss?

Hey Boss!

That's was my first initial reaction. Clark is a glorified receiver that happens to line up on occasion at the line of scrimmage but is mostly used as a T.E to create the mis-match problems against backers and safeties in the passing game. I wouldn't want Emmanuel Sanders or Brown in blocking on the edge so Clark's presence in what we need would serve no purpose.

Shockey or Heap would be cool. Maybe even Boss. Shockey would be great in the redzone and is a good route runner. Heap is a good route runner too, and an excellent blocker. He also would be a great redzone threat. Nothing long term, but we could use the help this year.

I'd make a pitch for Heap. He knows what it takes to bring it in this division and offers the type of height and experience needed to come in and compete, especially as a band-aide and offer veteran leadership to these young guys. The men would respect him in the huddle and Ben, I'd assume, would be comfortable in throwing to his 6'5 frame and ease his mind as a proven, veteran security blanket.

"HEEAAAPPP" would keep the fans warmed up for the return of "HEAAATTHH" later on down the road.

Plus, it would be fun to mindfuck Ravens fans if Ben and Heap would teamup for multiple TD's against their pansy ass's.

Shockey's a little too much of a whiner, though. I don't want that garbage in the locker room, especially after all the turmoil last year.

Was thinking the same thing. Lose Wallace and gain Shockey? Lateral movement.

Too bad the Steelers missed out on Clark. He c/would have been a solid add.
