    So Who Gets Cut Tomorrow?

    Fourteen players will take a visit to Mike Tomlin's office tomorrow and find out they don't have what it takes to make it with the B & G. The first round of cuts are not as important as the second but who do you guys see being cut? Do you think any of the early cuts will surprise any of us?? Some are fairly obvious and some are not. Here is an early list to get ya started.

    Kelvin Beachum - OL
    Mike Blanc - DT
    Paul Cox - WR
    Andre Freeman - CB
    Brandon Hicks - LB
    Ikponmwusa Igbinosun - DE
    Kyle Jolly - OT
    Marshall McFadden - LB
    Walter McFadden - CB
    Justin Peelle - TE
    Juamorris Stewart - WR
    Jake Stoller - DE
    Kade Weston - DT
    Jimmy Young - WR

    DeCastro moved to Injured Reserve to meet the 75 player requirement. UGH.....really??

    With DeCastro out for the season Beachum may stick around for awhile.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Yeah like another week. Hopefully this doesnt mean Essux will get a roster spot. Dam, who is the alternative to those two??

    DeCastro season is over??? Is it official??? I thought they are waiting for MRI. This is a sad news if true.

    First player i will cut is Marcus Gilbert. That lazy turd is on Ravens payroll. First he took out DJ and now DeCastro. Next player could be Ben or Ramon Foster.

    Well I would think at this point without any outside players being picked up through the waiver process that the Steelers will only keep 8 OL out of the gate. There is enough position flexibility with the backups to make that possible. You have the starters:

    LT - Max Starks
    LG - Willie Colon
    C - Maurkice Pouncey
    RG - Ramon Foster
    RT - Marcus Gilbert

    and the backups:

    Mike Adams - T
    Trai Essex - T, G, C
    Doug Legursky - G, C

    I think the DeCastro injury gave Essex another year in the Burgh unfortunately.

    I think they might carry 9 OL. I also think Ryan Lee could be in the mix.

    OL looks okay as long as Willie Colon stays healthy. If there is any injury to O-line i think Steelers Offense will struggle.

    Ryan Lee is listed as a C/G on the roster. I think he played G in college. He has looked very good against the other teams' future 7/11 clerks.



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    Just my opinion but I think Ryan Lee is a keeper, got to find a way to hang on to that kid.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    Starxx, Colon, Pouncey, Foster, Gilbert, Legs, Adams, and Lee? Pretty thin depth wise but i cant bear the idea of Essux another year.
