    I am not mad at all they are gone. I am mad at the way we have drafted and that we have pushed cap money into the future on certain veterans where if we wouldn't have dead money and were capable of drafting better they would be cut for cheaper players, allowing us the money to address other needs on a key free agent or two. Not all free agents are expensive.
    This.

    Three players on the roster total from the 2006-2009 (FOUR) draft classes. Those are 26-29 year-olds. The "prime" production years for NFL players.

    Wait.... it's five now because we brought back William Gay and Matt Spaeth.

Maybe we could have traded a player like Willie Colon, who was still under contract...but I think teams would've been reluctant to pay what we were paying to a player who has been knocked out by injury 3 years in a row. And the way the rules are, we might have been on the hook for a pretty big cap hit for Colon for 2013 anyway. You'll be happy to know that next season, we'll have at least two or three comp picks coming.
    I did not think it would be easy. But, how many fans thought that Wallace was going to be a Steeler in 2013 before the season started. Maybe 2. And apparently Colbert was one of them. They slapped a 1st rd RFA thing on him and waited. 99% of the fans were hoping someone took him. That did not happen of course [it never does, does it?] so that was when somehow he should have been unloaded.

    Mendenhall returned Oct 7 against the Eagles. He did very well 13 68 5.2 avg.
    Prior to this for a month they were showing him working out. He looked like the best conditioned player on the team. The trade deadline is late in October.

    It is easy for me to talk and say that was a chance to unload him because I did not like him and was hoping he would be gone anyhow. But, apparently he was also not in TS plans either cause now he's gone anyhow.

    Of course, I am probably wrong about all this but nonetheless the end results the way it did work out was zippo. My way could also have been a zippo. But the worst case scenario there was a draw.

    Incidentally, someone pointed out that those comp picks can be tricky. They do deduct your FA losses from your FA gains.

    What might be more relevant here is how should TS handle contract impass situations and/or malcontents in the future. Zippo does not get it.

    btw: I am thrilled with the prospect of all those comp picks next year. But, right now I am willing to trade all of them and maybe throw in a certain undisclosed FO to boot for a 2nd rd pick this year.

    Bottom line is we could of traded Wallace last offseason and got a first round pick for him. Think about having two first round picks in a month and a half when the draft clock starts.

    It's nice to see some people actually get it. Others? Not so much. I am also glad FUMBLEhall and Wall@SS are both gone. But (and here where the more simple don't get it) the fact that they are gone and the fact that Pgh looks worse than ever are not mutually exclusive events. You see, it CAN be possible that losing the jerks with bad attitudes is a good thing, but the OTHER loss of talent AND the fumbling of the junk additions still make the team worse off EVEN THOUGH losing the jack @sses was STILL a good thing. I know some struggle with any concepts that are more complex than a wet turd, but that doesn't make them untrue.

    Loss of malcontents = good for locker room chemistry.

    Loss of other talent + moronic signing of rubbish = make the team worse.

    I know to the slower of wit, they can't grasp that both these statements can be true at the same time. They are simply not mutually exclusive.

    Having both of those guys didn't keep Ben healthy over the last two years...having both those guys didn't help us win a SB...

    If Ben can stay healthy, the Steelers can be contenders...
    Shhhhhhhhhh. Don't deal in logic or reality. Some have trouble grasping those things.

    I wonder if those #s can help out a crappy, bad attitude and lack of effort? How do those #s help a GIANT smile after dropping an easy TD pass? Or, not bothering to bend over for a low pass? Have you guys ever played sports?
