    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!

    Exactly. Saunders had great size, good athleticism, and strength for the passing game/breaking tackles. He was also coming along as a blocker. Pope is awful. Even if he knew the offense better, he can't execute it consistently. Especially with Paulson earning playing time, we could afford to let Pope go.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    The issue with Suanders is not his physical potential - the issue is between the ears. Back to training camp I was seeing reports that the coaching staff simply did not trust him.

    For his sake, I hope he puts it together, but I don't see this as a big loss.
