    If he makes us a better team in the red zone then yes. Otherwise we have guys with more potential that we could have used.

    I'm hoping it lights a fire under wallace and shows him if he doesn't step up he's expendable.

    They should have just brought Toney Clemons off the practice squad. Burress was terrible last year and will be terrible for us.
    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!

    If anyone gets being over the top for effect, I'm with you. But I don't see how anyone can say 45 catches, 600 yards, and 8 TDs is terrible for anyone, let alone a guy who is old and hadn't played football for 3 years while he was locked up.

    And on top of it, he was playing with one of the worst starting QBs in the league.

    Even though Plax is slow and can't get separation, teams are still gonna need to double him if they want to stop him because of his size. Especially in the redzone.

    Lets see what happens with him b/f we pass judgement. With no teams wanting to extend him an offer he may be playing with a little bit of a grudge (that's good!). He's also playing for a contract. I think it has the potential to be a very good move by the front office.

    I say its a good move.

    Steelers needed some help at WR position with injuries to AB84 and JCotchery. I don' think Sanders is AB or MW yet.

    Practice Squad WR corp don't impress me.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    Maybe having a guy who's life went down the crapper after he left will help convince Wallace to stay for a reasonable price...of course PB did win a Superbowl. Can we bring Holmes back to council Wallace?

    The Steelers jumped the gun on this one....

    We needed a WR because of injuries....It can't hurt having him here....He had a pretty decent year last year with a bad QB. He may become a red zone threat for this team.

    On the other hand, he has been sitting for 11 weeks of the season without any other of the 32 teams interested in signing him....
