    Exactly......

    Should have kept guys like Kenan Lewis, Will Allen, etc around and got us a "Real Tackle" to protect Ben's blind side
    $$$
    And maybe one for the other side, too.

    Never understood the dislike of Mendenhall. Quality back. Sure could have used him today. Even Dwyer would have been okay. Issac Redman is the worst back in the NFL.

    because a mediocre Troy is still a beast. I'll grant you the 16 game season argument. When he's on its no comparison. I'm willing to take that 3/4 or 1/2 of the season. I would prefer a full 16 but I have just come to the understanding that is not possible. I'll take the percentage he is on the field demonstrating the way the Steelers defense is played as "teaching". Hopefully some teammates watch and learn.

    Thor... if we are a superbowl contender this year... then sure... you gotta have guys like a healthy Troy in your secondary. We are not contenders this year..
    Since it's obvious we are re building... well... there's my case for keeping lewis and allen.

    I agree, I liked Will Allen, it seems $$ was the issue.

    by the way...I'll take a healthy will allen for 16 games over a Troy for 8 games any time.

    He could have been had for a fifth of Ike or Troy's money.

    Why does Ike command top $$??

    My non-scientific recollection of the past two or three seasons (ever since the Denver playoff game season) is that he is better at getting burned than making great plays.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
