Speaking for myself, I go with the name on the front of the jersey as opposed to the name on the back of the jersey. Porter did the Steelers well but he wanted more ca ching than the Steelers were willing to provide him with. No one is irreplaceable. I agree with whatever the organization's front office comes up with. I am a diehard Steeler fan. :bigthumb:

Porter was bound to go cause he was due a roster bouns. I would of let him go. We got a decent replacement in James Harrison. I am sure we will address this in the draft. Am I mad about Porter leaving, Of course, but I can see why the Steelers did it, and it is all economic.

No doubt, there's almost as many about Porter leaving as there was about Cowher leaving :lol:

Most on this board wanted him to stay, but knew he'd want more money than we could pay him.

(and i already know joey isnt a hall of famer or multiple time mvp)

Not having Joey here with us won't truly sink in until Sept when the regular season starts and there's no 55 on the field :(

Should we end up with Spencer (and I personally think its going to be either him or Carriker) and he turns out to be the beast we all think he is. Porter won't be missed! Might sound like a cruel thing to say but if we get an upgrade in the play at the position.....Joey will be quickly forgotten!

Have said this before....Our defense will improve even if we do nothing to improve it! If our offense starts playing like they are capable of and can control the line of scrimmage, the defense will improve simply by not being on the field as much as they were last year! There were a lot of games last year where Ben looked dysfunctional and it translated over to our offense being completely out of sync! If our offense is clicking like they are capable of then the defense will be better! I am sure you have all heard that the best defense is a great offense! Hard for the other team to score when their offense is on the sidelines watching. :yesnod:

There might be a 55 on the field. Depends if the steelers give out the number.

Don't feel bad TG- Steelers.com still have him flexing on their home page:lol: But I agree,I believe that if Porter would of just said," Look pay me my bonus" and (worked out the rest) he would of stayed :yesnod: At least 1 more year. (THATS AL HE HAD LEFT WITH THIS TEAM)

That is not sacrilege the Joey Porter era is dead! Time to move on to better things. Either Harrison will step up or we will draft someone. Then your all going to be saying Joey who.

Just like we all still say Lamert who, or Jack Ham who, or Bradshaw who? No way dude !!

sure players move on, it happens every year. There's always a physical body to stick in there but not always the same quality player to stick in there. You can bet your last dollar you'll never hear me say Joey who !

and just for the record, no Im not comparing Joey to those players, Im just making a point.

I wanna be upset, but we do trust the Steelers, we all wanted Llyodd to stay, and Gildon, and Greene, and Earl Holmes etc. But the get around 30 years old, and gone. Our biggst fear is "Who replaces him?" We`ve alwalys have had great depth at LB, hell Vrabel really couldnt crack our lineup, but I`m not sure where the depth is now. I love Porter, I love his kind of play. I`m not pissed that HE is gone, I`m pissed that we might not have his replacement.

Meh, Joey is replaceable. I loved watching the guy play for the Steelers, and would have been ecstatic if they would have kept him in Pittsburgh, but the bottom line is that he was expendable, and he wanted more than he was worth.

The Steelers will live, but it's too bad that Joey had to leave.
