    I like the roster, but I would like to see Dre Moore brought in and Nick Eason dropped. The team had serious interest in Moore before the draft (they brought him in twice for visits) and I think that he would at least give the team a young guy to put with all the gray beards up front. I really wish Mundy would have been healthy b/c the team would have probably kept him over T Carter.

    Overall that is a deep team with not alot of questions. There are of course holes but no of us can name a team that doesn't have holes.

    Apparently Mahan has demanded a trade, not to mention the Starks issue.... (The Latest "Buzz" thread...) ...So maybe the roster will still change a bit. Who knows....

    Nick Hayden was cut by the Panthers today too! I thought he would be a nice fit in the 3-4 as well. If nothing else I would like to see the Steelers put a couple of these guys on the PS. This team needs to look at all options in getting younger on the D Line.

    Glad to see Anthony Madison make the club. He played great on ST during the preseason.

    Agreed with the sentiments above. We shouldn't have 3 greybeard DE's backing up our 2 greybeard DE starters. Cut Eason and/or Roye and pick up Moore and/or Hayden. You need to have at least one young developmental DE on your roster!

    someone said in another thread that we needed to watcht he Carolina DL cuts. I agree, they seem to have stockpiled some serious talent over there.
