    The Steelers had a viable replacement in the wings. That falls under the "didnt want him line".

    He is locked up. He's talking about voiding the last 3 years of his contract.

    Hopefully, your statement is true regarding Woodley.[/quote:134j8215]

    But the Steelers would have paid him and locked him up at a salary that would have been good for both. See Troy Polamalu, Hines Ward, James Harrison, Ike Taylor, Casey Hampton, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Smith, etc., etc,

    Having a contract that can have 3 years voided isn't a contract that is best for both. Think about it.

    In Brown's last season in Pittburgh, he had 13 sacks. There is no way we "didn't want him."

    Correct. And they had a chance to re-do his deal the year before that monster season but they chose the wait-and-see approach and it burned them.

    I dont agree. Kirkland, Holmes, Lloyd, and Gildon were there. It was in the best interests of the Steelers to let him go. That is another way of saying we do not want him anymore. We want to go with these 4 other above average LB's.

    The wait and see approach wasnt on Brown but on Holmes. And Holmes stepped in and had a solid 1997.

    What Revis is doing is good for the players imho.

    Either give everyone a 1 year contract or make the contracts guaranteed.

    We could have had either Lamar Woodley or Willie Colon hold out who are both due to make some money and are both significantly underpaid.

    If Revis gets $100M, I can only imagine what kind of contracts Ben or Brady will end up with. Especially if either of those 2 win another SuperBowl or 2.

    Not true. They waited a year too long to do his deal and ended up losing him. They wanted him.

    We just couldn't pay the price money bags in Seattle could.

    Plus Pittsburgh lacks sushi for the distinguished palate.

    Re: Revis' actions wouldn't suit Steelers

    I guess some of you forgot how one dimensional Chad Brown was?? How he was inept in run support. He didnt play outside LB he played inside. Earl Holmes was a better fit for what they wanted to play on defense. Of course they wanted to keep one of their own but not at the cost it was going to take. They werent playing in Heinz Field at the time. The revenue wasnt the same and it was best to let go and allow for others to step in.
