    Angry Next season could be ugly...

    From the sounds of it there is no way we are re-signing Wallace, a 26 year old, fastest wide out in the game a #1 or #2 WR
    Now it sounds like Lewis will not be coming back, just when he is starting to shape up as a good player. It sounds to me like we just can't afford to keep any young talent. So far i see no talk of improvement, just letting young talent go. We better have some big in the works for the draft (trading up for a good back or seriously fixing the 0-line once and for all AND if we don't get a back in the draft we need to sign one. The three we have now just are not good enough. Does anyone see any positives that could come this off season to give me any reason to believe we will be better than 8-8 next year.

    How the hell did we get in this mess anyways? Signing brown is like the only smart thing we've done in the past 3 years.

    Thats because we dont play "young" talent. To see what they are capable of until there contract year. Pretty much.

    Held onto aging vets too long.

    They can get one of them if they work on it, but no way do they get both.

    The ONLY way we are better than 8-8 is if we use our talent rather than handcuff it.

    Between Wallce and Lewis, Id take Lewis, he'd probably cost less, and I think our offence could do with out Wallace. Brown Sanders, Burress and Miller are good enough for next season I guess. I just think it's real important we get a good back. *sigh*

    Yes, Im a Wallace guy, but if Lewis can play his career like he has shown the second half of this season, I think the better investment would be Lewis, you would be paying him good money, but not over the top money. We would have a good secondary and with Allen being very good as well. Wallace would be nice to sign for the offense. But I also feel good going into next year with Brown/Saunders/Cotchery/Miller when he comes back and I want them to resign Plax. If we sign Mike and Lewis which I doubt, then so be it.

    This! By time they see any playing time their contracts are up! Pretty stupid but it's the Tomlin way! I hope this will open their eyes!

    Harrison and Colon will be cut. With Harrison possibly resigned at a much lower price tag. But they've got to play younger guys. Which means that Tomlin has to run a better camp, require more from the players, and make them accountable.

    In other words, it's time for Tomlin to be a real coach.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.
