    WTF is going on here??

    its what is killing this team
    Simplify the D...

    I still think you need to draft D early and often given our circumstances on D.

    I agree. We don't see enough of young plkayers in game situations to assess their long term viability before we have their rookie contract expiring.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    As for Harrison's comments that he would love to be back, I'd be all for a one year deal. At his age, there is no way that Harrison will play every down, and Jones will still get heavy snaps, similar to Timmons in his second year. You could also blitz James up the inside on passing downs, where his power is still effective, having Worilds, Jones and Harrison on the field.

    This gives you depth and veteran leadership at a position that could use some of both.

    Part of this is more an opinion as a fan than a purely rational/football related decision, but I'd enjoy seeing James play out a year and then retire.

    exactly.

    carolina drafts star and luke. they're playing right away and were a top defense. and they're not even close to the amount of high draft picks we have on defense

    Kuechly has ESP when it comes to dissecting a play, lets not act like thats an every day quality in a rookie LB.

    Mosely does have that potential, I just dont know, im very cautious about liking a bama defender anymore

    I don't blame Harrison for wanting to get paid or the Steelers for letting him walk. That's just the way things work out sometimes.

    And does anyone here believe that James Harrison wouldn't give 100% on every down he plays?

    Steelers purging age left and right from their defense so why in the world would they want Harrison back? ...
