    I think Moats was a very good addition, and I think Howard Jones will be out Carter for the 4th OLB (not sad to see Carter go). I think we also have a very flexible LB corps, with Timmons, Shazier,...

    FWP. We would've said the same things about him back then. I'm not saying this guy is the next FWP, or will even make the team, but sometimes circumstances just lead to a guy not getting his fair...

    Cap Room Now?

    With all the visits we've had in the past week, and the relative lack of cap room we have available (less than $2.5M), it really seems we need more cap space now if we really want one or two of these...

    Also looking for Pouncey's replacement when he leaves via FA next year? Brian Stork in Rd #4!

    Might consider it, but not for Evans. I love his ability to go get the ball, but I've also seen him lose his cool and take a few quarters to "get over it". His head will keep him from being elite,...

    Worilds will be gone because of the salary cap disaster we created, and there are plenty of teams (especially this year with the cap higher than expected) that will overpay and easily outbid us in FA...

    Thanks! Guess I've got too much time on my hands to think all this through, LOL!

    But yeah, Pouncey will not be back after next year, so I see this as an opportunity for the Steelers to get a few...

    Part 3: the draft
    #1(15) After seeing the Seahawks in the SB, I'm all about D, if possible. That said, an unexpected dropper at OT could also make the cut. I'm not a fan of the WR's (except for...

    Part 2, cuts, trades, supplemental picks and free-agent shopping.

    First, we make some cap room with cuts: L. Brown, OT: sorry Levi, easy cut, may bring you back for cheap; I. Taylor, CB: very...

    Steelers Offseason in 3 Parts

    As a longtime Steeler fan and self-confessed draftnik, here's my three-part offseason plan for the Steelers, if I were GM. I will acknowledge being far more aggressive than the Steelers generally...

    I don't hate it. You need to be flexible and open-minded when drafting. If you're sitting at 15, and no one falls in your lap and everything else is a reach, why not trade back, get extra picks, and...

    It's true, and it points to O & D line play, which points to the best available DL or OL available with the first pick, if there is one remaining that fits the scheme is worthy of being picked at 15....

    Andy Dalton is the second coming of Carson Palmer. Couldn't be happier about that!

    If he could be brought back for a reasonable price, do it. But I also worry a little about guys who suddenly light it up in contract years (half-year in his case?). I really like glass-eating...
  15. Something we're seeing so far in the playoffs...

    Something we're seeing so far in the playoffs makes me wonder if the league has really become a passing league--so far, the team that wins the battle of the LOS, makes some key D stops when they need...

    Nota lot of NTs to be had in the draft. Usually, the short, stout (Casey!) are the best at getting and holding the double teams. So, if he comes out this year (unlikely) I think we take Danny...

    I think we'll end up with a 6 or 7, too, with the Mendenhall/Mundy/Allen/Legursky losses offsetting our "gains". Or maybe Tomlin's foray onto the field will offset that extra pick?

    True that. As a longtime draftnik, I really don't like a lot of Texas players (a few notable exceptions, but lots of real duds), as well as those from a few other schools.

    At 15, we are best to...

    Good article on McLendon; I like his work ethic, his approach, his effort. That said, I agree he'd likely make a better DE for us. So, a short run-plugger? D. Shelton, 3rd Round pick this year. ...

    If we get a chance to see Woods and Fangupo play this week, we might find we have a decent future for our DL. Assuming Hood leaves as a FA next year (he is in a contract year, right). Without Hood...

    The more we win, the further we get away from certain players of interest(the top 3 LTs). The talent at CB and DL for the 3-4 we play is probably not there considering where we are likely to pick in...

    Lake has done a great job with the young secondary players, and I think Golden will be the next nice surprise on defense. Was a CB in college that struggled when the ball wasn't in front of him but...
