We better not lose Joey, i'm gonna be pissed if we do! I"m sick of losing good guys because of money. While I understand and admire the financial consciousness of the Rooneys, I somewhat feel it borderlines on cheap! I want Joey to retired a Steeler..
How can you call the Rooney's cheap when there are only 3 teams with less room under the salary cap than us? Of the 109 million teams are allowed to spend.......we only have 3.5 million in wiggle room! Is that cheap? Perhaps you don't like that the Rooney's are NEVER willing to overpay for talent! Our salary is more spread out than other teams! Some teams spend a lot on only a couple stars but then they can't afford to spend much on the rest of the team. Those teams are usually not that good! Would you like us to change that pattern of spreading around salary more fairly? Would you be happier if we put 50% of our salary on 3 or 4 guys and paid everybody else league minimums? Was Randle El worth 6 mil a year? To Daniel Syder he was but then the Redskins don't get to pick very many new players this year! Snyder pays his players and other teams players whatever they want! Do you think its working for them? Are the Redskins the team all others are trying to emulate? Give the Rooney's a break! They seem to know how to run a football team!
He was never meant to be a Steeler .... didn't have the attitude for it.
I liked Duce at first and he did well for us. He was also a team player and takes his role with class. Because of how injury prone he is, we never really got to see the real Duce. However, the first season he was with us he was putting up 100 yrd. games every game he started with the exception of when him and the Bus were splitting it 50/50. However, he has not had much production since then, and that's my problem with him now. In this sport it is all about "what have you done for me lately" and the awnser to that is nothing!!!!
