    That unless James calls Art II on the phone and basically kisses his ass, and plays steps and fetch? This has NO CHANCE of getting done despite what the coaches on the staff want.

    Ok that was easier for me to understand. You say this stuff about Art 2 and the Steelers, yet everything about Ben's trouble was false. So just as with the Ben trouble I have to stand back and think. Then wonder were is the truth in it?

    I wonder if Art 2 is more in for the money? Guess I will sit back and in 5 years or so will have some sort of answer were he will take the Steelers.

    Back to James. He burned the bridge is how I see it. He could have been a Steelers "hero" like the Bus and played for "pennies". Then this year or next used the retirement card to inspire the Steelers once they were in the playoffs. But he was thinking with the his wallet! Money now. I get that line of thinking for these guys but so far it is not working for him and I still think he could have made more money with the Steelers then else were.

    Well, the Steelers are younger, but IMO a worse football team than when they ended the season.

    I hope Worilds is all Worilds, heck I hope he's at least all state.

    To be honest, he doesn't remind Chadman of Harrison or K Greene.

    Vrabel, however..
    Playing the OSU card? lol I don't think Simon is the same animal as Vrabel was. Simon is a down hill athlete & that is why I drew the comapriosn to Greene. Vrabel was just a gifted "football player". Vrabel was a guy who was capable of playing all 4 LB spots in a 3-4 & some DE. Capable of playing SAM & WIL in a 4-3 and DE spots as well. I think Simon is a 4-3 DE or 3-4 OLB only. He has alot of work to do in coverage. He is a little stiff in the hips and may struggle in space at times staying on a TE or RB. If there is a Vrabel in this draft...Sign me up.
    Retain Worilds or Sign Brandon Graham OLB
    Sign FA RB (???)

    Draft:
    1st Waynes CB/ Collins CB / Peters CB
    2nd Eli Harold OLB
    3rd Jesse James TE
    4th Eric Rowe DB
    5th Karlos Williams RB
    6A Xavier Williams NT
    6B Ray Drew DE
    7th Max Garcia OL

    Interesting that Vrabel was Simon's position coach last year at OSU...
