How many times have we seen this scenario happen...
A players contract is up, he goes to another team for more money and what happens...He stinks and/or the team stinks and said player then realizes he should have stayed in Pittsburgh.
The handful of players that actually left the Steelers and had equal or more success with their next team is so far out of whack from those that have stayed it's not even funny.
All these players that we have in the last year of their contracts coming up in 2008 better think long and hard about what they really want out of their NFL careers because history tells us that you are not generally as successful elsewhere when you've been a Pittsburgh Steeler. We drafted you, improved your skills and made you into the player you are today. It's not like you're going to go broke if you stay in Pittsburgh, I mean how much money do you really need to live on and provide for your family? If you want to stay successful then you better highly consider sticking around here.
Many of our players can perform well anywhere in the league, but our system combined with their talents is what puts them over the edge and into elite or atleast the Upper Echelon status of players at their position.
