    Why did we start Redman like he is a proven #1 RB?

    We gave Dwyer the bulk of the carries in preseason when we knew we werent going to keep him. Stupid.. really stupid.

    What did everyone say during the preseason? Hey its just the preseason. Well hey its just week one. Im not going to get concerned until week 8 when we are mathematicaly eliminated.

    He's too new and doesn't know the assignments yet. How'd I do? That or the coaches really are the bafoons many make them out to be. After last year, the pre-season and game 1 this year, it's beginning to be very difficult not to see some logic in the Tomlin, Haley and Lebeau should go fan clubs.

    Dwyer is not a problem child who burned bridges. Not ruling him out, but my instincts tell me Alvester Alexander off practice squad.

    If this comes true, you have to wonder whether the Steelers have vindictive coaches or FO. How can A Alexander give the Steelers a better chance to win than Dwyer?

    Alexander played here in Wyoming. Evidently the Steelers are now signing guys who can pass the fog the mirror test.

    See that's the problem I have with the personnel management on this team, last year if was a known fact that both Dwyer and Redman was a fail. So they go out and draft 1 RB and bring a change of pace back on board and call it quits. The same goes for the OL. The Steelers need to stop trying to low ball free agents and bring some real players on board, not necessarily starters but back ups.

    They have. Look at their recent drafts. That O line- the best player is Foster- even before Pouncey getting friendly fire cut blocked. Pouncey is very over rated. That line has 2 1st and 2 seconds starting. They are BUST. RB. They drafted Rainey, They drafted Mendenhall. Heyward and Hood Bust Bust. Throw in the guys who start the hot tub club about week 6 and this year is like a kick in the balls. The Personel DEPT is the main problem with the Steelers. They used to have backups at multiple positions that could start around the NFL. Now they have Starters that cant make other teams rosters
