    I also don't really like the idea of "complementary backs". Look at San Diego - you know if Mathews is in he is running, and if Woodhead is in he most likely will catch a pass.

    Having two guys who can do it all .... like Bell and MJD .... means you don't ever tip your hand to the defense based on personnel.

    Can't see how Jones-Drew is a 'bad' fit for the Steelers. That said, getting Stephons-Howling back wouldn't be the worst move ever, and cheaper. Add someone LIKE Blount or another pounder to back up Bell as well...and the RB's are stacked.

    That said, if it's MJD, who wouldn't be happy?

    Cotchery is a solid WR, but a by-product of Ben. He's replaceable, and Moore is a more than solid UPGRADE on Cotchery.

    Harrison coming back would be a good, smart move to back-up, or even rotate, with the younger starters.

    How a guy that was a STARTER for the Chargers is a worse player than a guy that started 3 games in his career, and took part in one of the worst DL performances by the Steelers for a year in a long time is baffling. Woods was alright, but Thomas is a better fit.

    Disagree there, Chadman... Back when the Jets had Cotchery and Laverneus Coles, they both put up solid numbers... Not *great*, but, certainly capable of #3 who could be #2 in a pinch... he is who we thought he was. Don't let him off the hook.

    As for Cam vs Woods, you last word is exactly waht will make the difference... "fit". If he is a better fit, we'll all be happy. Gotta be a positive for a defensive player to come to the Steelers... tradition... hopefully, he works his tail off.
