    Steeler Saleries ??

    So we may loose Saunders to the pats because we can't come up with 2.5 mill. All i've heard this offseason is how bad our salary cap issue is. We've lost 5 mill a year for Colon going, and other players yet we're still in trouble...

    Begs the question... on an 8-8 team just who the hell is getting a lot of money and are they being overpaid ? Maybe we need to be cutting someone else ?

    Does anyone have a breakdown of players with their salaries ????

    That 5 mil doesn't kick in until June 1st. And they do have the money to match the Pats offer, it's just a matter of whether or not they would rather have Sanders, or an extra 3rd in the draft.

    Plenty of people who should be told it's time for a pay cut or a release.

    Woodley $10.2 mill?
    Troy $9.1 mill?

    Really? $20 mill for two players who didn't do jack squat last season for an 8-8 team.

    Grow a pair of balls, Colbert and Rooney.

    That's false. They could easily come up with that cap space before you could blink.

    Troy's salary is a damn shame.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    As I said in another thread. Everyone complains that we do not keep our "young talent" and then complain about the young talent that they did sign long term. Damned if you do...

    You are only covering half the topic. Sign young players and then don't allow them to become fat, injury prone and no where near worth what they are getting paid. It is a damn sin that Pgh is paying Woodley and Troy what they are. Just pathetic. A total embarrassment to the team, city and fan base.

    And how exactly do you do that?

    By having a coach/team that applies team discipline. You think Parcells or Coughlin or Belichick would put up with Woodley's insane fatty fat fatty body? Allowing Woodley to get that fat is insane, while making $10 mill a year.
