Ben Roethlisberger, Charlie Batch, Dennis Dixon.
Rationale: Easy prediction but I do expect they hope to get Reilly on PS in anticipation of batch retirement.
Running back (5)
Willie Parker, Rashard Mendenhall, Mewelde Moore, Carey Davis, Stefan Logan.
Rationale: I think coaches and FO wanted Summers but unless he is healthy soon he is detined for the PS along with Redman. Redman runs hard but his fitness looks lacking. Logan pushes both to the PS because he will be a more regular contributor every game when Summers and Redman would unlikely even dress for games.
Wide receiver (5)
Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes, Limas Sweed, Mike Wallace, Shaun McDonald.
Rationale: McDonald has done nothing wrong and is a solid security player.
Tight end (3)
Heath Miller, Matt Spaeth, David Johnson.
Rationale: Johnson gets a pass because of McHugh injury but I would prefer McHugh's experience.
Offensive line (10)
Max Starks, Chris Kemoeatu, Justin Hartwig, Trai Essex, Willie Colon, Ramon Foster, Darnell Stapleton, Kraig Urbik, Tony Hills, Jason Capizzi.
Rationale: Unless Stapleton's injury warrants IR both Shipley and Legursky will be interior OL on PS.
Defensive line (7)
Brett Keisel, Casey Hampton, Aaron Smith, Chris Hoke, Nick Eason, Sonny Harris, Ziggy Hood.
Rationale: Toughest decision is to cut Kirschke but he has a history of a bad back and I don't think Harris will clear waivers. Need to get younger here and this is the year.
James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons, James Farrior, LaMarr Woodley, Donovan Woods, Keyaron Fox, Andre Frazier, Patrick Baily.
Rationale: Davis has missed out on his chance. Baily makes it at the expense of Anthony Madision because Baily is solid on special teams.
Ike Taylor, William Gay, Deshea Townsend, Keenan Lewis, Joe Burnett, Keiwan Ratliff
Rationale: Anthony Madision is too one dimensional and can't play DB at all. Burnett takes his gunner role.
Ryan Clark, Troy Polamalu, Ryan Mundy
Rationale: Townsend becomes insurance at safety along with Ratliff. Mundy can play both free and strong safety. End of the line for Carter. This is our thinest area and we need to address in next year's draft early.
Jeff Reed, Dan Sepulveda, Greg Warren.
