I don't want to spend money signing Keenan Lewis. I don't care if the defense takes a dip from first in the league to 10th as long as the offense improves. I want the team to sign an elite WR like Boldin at the expense of the defense just like the Ravens did. They're going to the AFC conference championship. The Steelers are still living in the 70s by concentrating on having a great defense but only managing to score an average of less than 3 TDs per game.
Our offensive difficulties have not been from lack of spending on offense. Even if we went with you philosophy, it still does not indicate that we should spend big in the FA market. You could do the same by using top draft choices on offense.
