Looks like the Steelers are going to clean house on the deadwood and underperforming players. Like they said 8-8 is unacceptable so why should they keep the same players.
The only question I would have is why would they let a consistent player like Starks leave when they were having issues with the offensive line?
I could see Foster and Colon leaving but they are making a mistake letting Starks go.
We could get by maybe, but what if the line hits the injury bug again? I guess they are going to draft some more linemen, I really don't know but it makes no sense to weaken that line and hope everything will work out without Starks.
2 words- Salary Cap.The only question I would have is why would they let a consistent player like Starks leave when they were having issues with the offensive line?
The Steelers are supposedly $16m over the cap right now- not even factoring in the $7m it will take to keep the RFA's & ERFA's. $23m.....
Who is more important- Keenan Lewis or Max Starks? That'll likely be the question the Steelers face.
Schiavone's Race Career:
I love that Colbert has put everyone on notice because this is the year to "blow it up" and take two years to get a roster that can make a nice three year run to close out Ben's career.
One of them is one that I hate to see, but probably necessary, and that is Harrison, this guy is a mean SOB and brought attitude and 110% effort every down he was on the field, regardless of health. It's tough to cut a guy like that, but they probably have to.

The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
I hit him as hard as I could - Jack Lambert
Letting Lewis go would be just plain ignorant. Ike is not a spring chicken and we need to keep an eye toward the future. I hope we keep Foster as well.
