    Can't see what it would hurt to let Shamarko play some of Clark's snaps at FS. Clark has clearly not been as effective this year (although, the lingering stink that comes from the DL probably plays it's part there too), and the time for the shift from Clark to someone else is closer than ever.

    Not sold on Golden still.

    Interesting to see if Will Allen is re-signed.

    I'm not smoking anything. Exactly which part of my post was inaccurate?

    The part where you said the offense gets plenty of resources. This team, let alone the offense, has terrible depth.

    Ahem...

    QB- 1st Round
    RB- 2nd Round
    OT- 2 x 2nd Round
    OG- 1 x 1st Round
    OC- 1 x 1st Round
    TE- 1 x 1st Round

    Not exactly devoid of investment...and not including the likes of Sweed, Mendenhall, Wallace etc that were all top 3 round types..

    The OTs suck
    The OG isn't off to a great start, but he still has potential
    The OC is done for the year, and they had to grab a guy off the couch to replace him
    The #1 TE is good, but the rest of the TEs are bums. A lot of teams have at least a decent #2 TE.
    The #1 RB is good, but again, the rest are bums.
    Where's the #1 WR at? Oh yeah, he was allowed to walk and he wasn't replaced.

    Again, terrible depth.

    Yeah...but...the investment IS there. It's not like Tomlin & co have neglected the Offense. Have they stocked the O with stud players? At this stage, it's debatable. But it's not like they haven't tried.

    As for losing players like Wallace & Mendenhall, the D has also let star players walk in Lewis, Harrison etc. It's not like the FO are biased toward one side of the team. The big difference in FINANCIAL investment between the 2 sides of the ball has nothing to do with the attempted investment, and more to do with the age of the players. Most of these high round O players are on rookie contracts, or just out of them. Obviously, they are going to cost less than a contract 2 type like Woodley or Timmons.

    The argument about depth is across the team, not just on O. Who is the back-up NT? ILB? If injury strikes in any position, chances are, the guy behind him isn't as good.

    Plax was the ONLY one of those 4 here before Ben.

    From 2003-2009 this team didn't select one OL in the first two rounds of the draft.

    Now, how many 2nd, and in some cases 3rd contracts did members of this defense get over the years?

    For anyone who won't admit that the offensive side of the ball is treated like the bastard step-child compared to the defense? Is either stupid, or has an agenda.
    Or, they are simply making an honest and accurate observation, Crash...

    Hines Ward was offered several contracts...

    Heath Miller

    Antonio Brown

    Willie Colon

    I read somewhere that Shmarko is going to start rotating in at FS in the base defense.

    Typically moving the goal posts. There is no investment. Oh, wait, there is an investment, but they players all stink.

    Holmes traded not offered 2nd contract. Because he is a turd. Also, what has he done for the Jets? He is in no way worth the money he got.

    Wallace not offered 2nd contract. False. He turned down an offer before the Steelers extended Brown.

    Mendenhall not offered 2nd contract. Because he stinks. He was an investment as a first rounder and the Steelers invested a second rounder as his replacement.

    Plax was the ONLY one of those 4 here before Ben.

    From 2003-2009 this team didn't select one OL in the first two rounds of the draft. The line in 2005 had Smith (2) - Faneca (1) - Hartings (1 - FA) - Simmons (1) and Starks (3).

    Now, how many 2nd, and in some cases 3rd contracts did members of this defense get over the years?
