    Can we get a refund on Young Money?

    Antonio Brown scores a TD every 35.55 times he is targeted. Emmanuel Sanders scores a TD every 31.85 times he is targeted. So...some time around Christmas we can expect a TD from one of these guys.

    Oh yeah..I forgot...they move the chains though......yawn!!!

    Young Counterfeits might be a more accurate description.

    i agree.

    These guys are chumps and can't make plays. Steeler rose colored glasses has really go to the coaching and FO.

    brown is getting his numbers, that's all that matters to some

    and not taking the 3rd for manny when it was gifted to them was criminal with this roster

    Yeah, that will prove to be a poor decision. I don't think Sanders gets paid what he is hoping for on the open market, but I'd bet against him returning to the Steelers.

    They could have taken Schmarko with the 3rd from the Pats* and then they would still have what is looking to be a very high third round pick this year. Instead, they'll likely end up with a 5th or 6th round comp pick in 2014.

    Cause we could draft another Curtis Brown, Trai Essex, Willie Reid, Matt Spaeth, Bruce Davis, Hank Poteat, Kendrick Clancey, etc. Considering our draft success, any draft pick is a crap shoot vs keeping a current player.

    Of course we could get a Wallace, Lewis, or Max Starks.

    Still I'd rather keep Sanders and try to win now. I have 0 problem with that decision.

    When you have a team with a talent deficit, like the Steelers do, you cannot continue to lose assets and not get anything in return. Wallace left, and in return, the Steelers will get maybe a third round comp pick. Lewis will net probably a 5th or so. That is moving backwards.

    Sanders has proven that he is no more than a low end #2 or an average #3 WR. If you could have cashed that in for a third round pick, you make the move. Is Sanders any more of an impact player than, say, David Nelson, who the Jets signed off the scrap heap after the season?

    Sanders obviously hasn't help the Steelers this year and he won't in the future. They had a chance to cash in on him, and failed to take advantage. As a result, the team will limp into this offseason with a depleted roster, cap issues, and less than their full compliment of picks.

    I don't think we lack the talent to warrant this poor play and equally as poor record. Not even close IMO.

    I will say that if Sanders walks (and I'm not opposed to that if he wants any more than a #3 WR payday) then it was dumb to not accept the Pats round 3 pick. That's not a hindsight comment either. If you knew you weren't going to sign him long term than you'd have to be a moron to not accept the pick.
