    Sanders was good in Denver, but he never performed close to that level in Pittsburgh. Also, in Denver, Sanders had Demaryius Thomas drawing most of...

    For years, the Bengals tried to build a team with talented, low character guys. The Joe Mixon's and Burfict's of the world. It never worked for them....

    He played that role in GB and that was a big part of the discussion when he signed in Pittsburgh. I'm not sure that he has the speed anymore to play...

    I saw a lower savings for cutting Burns, only $1.7 million. As Ovi pointed out, you'd need to replace him, so it's a max savings of $1.2 million. For...

    The Steelers have missed with a ton of picks, but this one is really Monday morning quarterbacking. Nobody really saw Leonard coming, and I don't...

    If the reports that he was trying to divide the locker room are true, then yes, he needed to go. Otherwise, the timing of this is a bit odd. Last...

    More than that, I think that Whiz owned Butler. He simply put Allen in the slot, and it got him matched up with Dupree, Fort and Bostic in coverage...

    Oh absolutely. I would not start Bell this year, but if the Steelers have a lead in the 4th quarter, I'd let Bell take the beating.
