I'm guessing Golden had something to do with this as well. While his exposure has been limited, I was so impressed with his nose for the ball, tackling, and playmaking ability.

Patrick Chung has been brought up over at the Steelers Scout page.
I totally agree if that is the assessment they have made. Both the Bumgals and Ravens are better than us right now.

Well, if they were third best team in the AFCN this past year, releasing Hampton with no real plan behind him and Ryan Clark with no real plan behind him probably isn't going to move them into 1st or 2nd. Now, Harrison, Foote and Kiesel will probably be released and there really isn't a plan behind any of them either. this should all be really fascinating, probably makes for another subpar year next year, but hopefully, that will be the extent of it.
Oh, I forgot, Starks and Colon look like casualties as well, the Steelers are good to go now, they'll be younger for sure.

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
I don't see the Steelers cutting Clark. He may be forced out by injury but he won't just be cut. No Way.
Clark already started his rehab and training, I can't rely on scuttlebutt.
