    If Duce does go, they must have alot of confidence in Verron to be the main backup and split time in short yardage with Willie. Verron is also the backup FB to Kreider too, so look for us to maybe grab a FB for the practice squad.

    Interesting fact. I was gone all day, working and shopping with the wife. I am shocked, although, Duce is going to be sent packing.

    I'm not sure of the exact hit, but this guy does a really awesome job with keeping tabs on salaries for the Steelers. Here is Duce's page: http://www.geocities.com/steelersala...DuceStaley.htm

    Plus I still don't understand picking up a rookie to replace a veteran like Duce??? If this is the scenario that plays out...

    Steelers | Humes released from team
    Fri, 1 Sep 2006 21:57:29 -0700

    Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Pittsburgh Steelers RB Cedric Humes has been released from the team.

    Maybe they wanted a young guy to try and bring up? Maybe Duce isn't gone after all? It's going to be interesting.

    That's an interesting turn of events, especially since they were so high on Cedric after they drafted him. From what I heard Humes didn't show much in camp and perhaps he had character/work ethic issues that they felt just didn't fit the team so they wanted to get another young back to groom with maybe a better upside fit for the team.

    We'll find out real soon what status is of the players for the 53 man roster.

    Man, that shocked me, I thought Humes would be on the practice squad. Boy, things are getting weird in the Burgh.

    I like this Cobbs kid. I remember reading about him when he was in college. He seems to be a fast back with some power. I saw he had 7 catches during the pre-season with the Pats. So it sounds he has some hands for a RB.
