    I don't need my NT to talk like Hines or have the focus of Peyton Manning. I need him fat and stout. Do you know what years Casey was lazy in the offseason? He has been with us long enough to prove he has the talent.
    The only question I have...is how much better would he be if he came to camp in shape? Its anyones guess.
    I don't know... but I think Casey still brings it. I think his way works just fine. Maybe he figured out training camp is all he needs. I don't see why people want Casey to change... It's not like he is on IR or getting beat at the end of games.

    Then a good team chef is also going to have to be a high priority. :P

    If the Steelers feel 100% they need him back next year, franchising him is a must. Don't sign him up for a longer term deal or anything.

    Agreed and/or draft Terrence Cody.

    yeah have him drop 50 lbs and watch him get pushed all over the place then instead of everyone saying he has weight issues they can say he is washed up. Give the man the contract and also let him run the ball in short yardage situations and earn his pay, that solves 2 problems.

    Are you going on Casey's lack of conditioning at Training Camp 2 years ago?

    How did that effect his play?

    The Steelers Run-D is still elite, and Hampton is a big part of that.

    Can't understand where this 'lazy & overpaid' stuff is coming from.
    The other great argument for letting Casey go is that Hoke is just as good as a replacement. Remember when Casey went down and Hoke played almost the entire season while maintaining the elite level of D?

    That was 2004 - 6 years ago by next season. And Hoke is more than a year older than fat, lazy, old Casey.

    I think Casey played at a higher level this year than he has for the last 3 or 4 years. I don't know whether it's because it was a contract year or not. That is my only reservation with re-signing him.

    Casey seems to play great when he is motivated but meh when he has nothing to play for. I think his contract needs to be incentive laden if we do resign him ... or like others have said just franchise him. That will keep him motivated.

    Don't sell Hoke short...

    I saw him catch Randy Moss behind the line of scrimmage the last time the Steelers played the Pats...

    I also saw him drop into coverage against GB and disrupt a 3rd down pass play...

    I would have no qualms staring Hoke, one year older than Casey or not...

    That being said, Casey should be a Steeler next year...but, if he isn't, I don't worry about Hoke...

    Muscle weighs more than fat. Maybe he should work out in the weightroom harder and put down the fork a little more.

    If muscle weighs more than fat... Casey is the Hulk.

    Are you suggesting Casey gain more muscle mass which would mean more weight... and since he isn't going to get any taller we would call him fat and lazy?

    The guy is a NT... Being fat and low anchored is the number one priority.
