    So much for Limas' "new start" with the switch to #80.

    I can see how that phony injury he tried to pull off in the AFC Championship Game could lead one to be a bit skeptical about the legitimacy of future injuries.

    Re: Sweed injures Achilles

    Biggest loser here is Mike Wallace. He needed Sweed to step up this season to take some of the coverage pressure off of him. Now he is going to be blanketed with double teams and all we have left is a bunch of aging slot receivers and unproven rookies.

    The passing offense will take a major step backwards this season unless our QBs and Offensive Coord really embrace throwing the ball to RBs and TEs.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    I hadn't thought of this but it is a good point Ovie.

    I feel bad for Sweed, and wish him the best in his recovery.

    Heath needs to have a Dallas Clark type season this yr for the offense to be at the same level it was in 09.

    Absolutely. If it is serious, then you put him on IR and he's back in the same spot next year...you and Jim are the only other ones who seem to see it that way (at least in this thread). Those of you who say he's finished as a Steeler or it just wasn't meant to be are being overly pessimistic in my opinion.


    doesn't Sweed's rookie contract expire at the end of this season?
    I was wondering the same thing and thought it expired after the following season. Either way, we won't have to break the bank if the team does decide to sign him to another contract. I hate looking at it like that because from all accounts, he's a humble, hard-working guy, but it's something to consider.

    I just really hope that the thing didn't pop and he's able to compete in camp this year.
    He's signed through next season as well.

    7/25/2008: Signed a four-year, $3.265 million contract. The deal included a $1.56 million signing bonus. 2009: $385,000, 2010: $470,000, 2011: $555,000, 2012: Free Agent

    I said the same thing in another thread.

    I am hopeful, that like Holmes- who really is not a true "outside" receiver-

    they can use Sanders in slants and deep crossing patterns to draw a safety off of Wallace.
