    We will probably need to draft a TE anyway...so I would do that AND sign Plaxico and start him at WR.

    We had a talented TE and decided to let him walk and keep two scrubs. No one on this planet can convince me that Saunders was not better than Paulson and Pope combined, I think Haley had too much input on that decision.

Woodley has a responsibility to be in tip top shape when he comes to camp, when he has a 65 million price tag. No one should have to tell this guy about off season training.
    Everyone is so quick to let Silverback walk and keep Woodley, sorry I put Jason Worlids in his spot, keep Silverback and try to trade Woodley. Some might say thats crazy, well we're talking aggressive here about removing unproductive players. I realize he had injuries for the last few years but we can't afford to pay someone in the tub either.
    At least Harrison came on at the end, and did anyone notice our defense was better when James was in the lineup?
    The Steelers won't do what I'm suggesting but it was just a thought, paying 65 mil for a sloth is questionable in my mind.
    I don't think you are crazy at all, Woodley should be made an example of. I also think you have to cut ties with JH also watching these playoffs remind me of just how slow our Lb's are with Woodley, JH and Foote we have to have the all time slowest in the league over the last 10 years.

    OK, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Burress is probably the 5th best WR on this team behind Wallace, Brown, Sanders and Cotchery. Even if he happened to be on par or a little better then one of them he is still not starting NFL caliber at this point.

    Keep on pukin' then and trotting the same WR 3x over out onto the field. He had 600+ yds and 8 TD's in 11 from Sanchez....or basically not all that far off of Mike Wallace 2012.

    And yet nobody wanted him all year until the Steelers got desperate because of injuries.

    I really don't think we want to REPLACE Wallace ... I think we need to draft someone better than WALLACE and look at other holes to fill

    Nobody signed Max Starks either. Does that make him a bad LT?

    To be clear, I'm not saying I would put Plax in Wallace position.

    Nope. It just makes him fit in a pinch. Burress also fit in a pinch. However, part of the reason nobody signed Max was because he was coming off knee surgery and they weren't sure what they'd get.
