    Was I the only one not impressed by him? He had flashes, but he didn't seem to be able to get past the one hit at times. Sorry about his demons, but not worried about the player loss too much.

    I'm probably not going to lose too much sleep about losing our 4th string RB either...

Rainey has talent. He is probably one of the 5 or 10 fastest players in the league... and he converts it on to the field. The team cutting him is no small sacrifice.

    I know the bottom line is wins and losses, but I'm glad the team I root for places a premium on guys who act right.
    ...and yet, we have Harrison who smacked his baby mama, Ben and his drama, Plax and his gun wound and countless video of him cursing out Coughlin, Mendenhall and his issues, Tamu on the practice squad and God knows how many other infractions that have been kept in house.

    I love my Steelers but I'm not too far gone to believe we have a moral high ground. We keep drafting players who get in trouble...

    If the ST's didn't draw so many penalties I think you would mid him. The only reason you weren't impressed is because we failed to use him correctly on the flats.

    I will miss him.

    had a chance to be dynamic.

    Hey, is this where we complain about the "inconsistency" of the front office and fail to consider a player's replaceability as a factor?

    That may be. I say let him find his career somewhere else, and best of luck to him. Next.

    I don't. But that doesn't mean I'm not right. A family can have a deadbeat, loser, @s$h01e in their family. It doesn't make the whole family a piece of $h1+.

    I think Ta'amu's playing future isn't guaranteed. I think they are just trying to help him deal with his booze issues.

    It's called compassion. From what I hear he's also willing to get help and going to meetings.
