    Speaking of cap situation, what exactly is the Steelers' cap situation at this point? Should they even bother with the draft? Can they sign the rooks they draft?

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    The Robert Edwards injury happened 15 years ago. Advances in surgical procedures and rehab techniques have improved greatly in the last decade-and-a-half. I don't think the Steelers are counting on Spence, but I don't think they are counting him out either. But in the mean time, it's smart to bring back another depth player that is familiar with the scheme for little $ (although Sly's primary value to this team should once again be on special teams).

    We can't do that, because that'd involve effort typing, and it'd be too clear. It's better just to be lazy and call everybody "Sly," "Deebo," "Snack," "Potsie," "Beard," "Pounce," "Tone," "AB," etc., as if everybody knows who we're talking about.
