    I saw the Cardinals/Panthers game and Heap did almost nothing. He caught a couple of passes and had a false start penalty but he did nothing special.

    I didn't even see McGahee last night.

    Mason had a couple of outlet type catches but nothing significant.

    It looks like Kirwin is right once again.

    It's just just Mike Wallace that they're going to have to worry about soon...

    If Antonio Brown & Emmanuel Sanders keep producing, they're going to want good pay. Also, Mendenhall is going to want big time money as well. Couple that in with Timmons (did they extend him? I can't remember) and potentially Ryan Clark.

    WRs can really hit the wall too.

    Old age + reduced targets or reduced production for just one year can automatically raise doubt and bring about less chances for redemption and being forced out of the league.

    Who would have thought Marvin Harrison would put up 90 catches for 1200 yrds to 60/639 to out of the league? Without a sniff from anyone else?! Sure his personel stuff may have played a part too, but...

    Now look at Donald Driver. He was a regular 1000 yarder. He had 70 Rec for 1200 yards to 50/560 last year to people saying he is done this year.

    Ward could be trending that way too. He had 95 receptions for 1167 yards in 2009. Then he had 59 for 775 last year.

    We'll see what hapopens this year.

    The WR market is a tough one. Lots of young talent out there.

    McGahee had some carries.......he looked OK, like a good backup.

    Denver just does not have the mentality to run the ball effectively yet. John Fox is likely trying to instill that in the team's psyche, but it may take a while. McGahee saw some time, but fumbled once (I cannot remember whether or not it was ruled down or if Denver recovered it) and dropped an easy pass another time. It was raining.

    As far as Pittsburgh is concerned, their issue will be whether or not the younger players can begin producing soon enough. They have tried to find some younger pieces on both sides of the ball. They might as well trade Mendenhall for whatever they can get. He is just not the right running back for them.

    Actually, and perhaps more importantly, Pittsburgh will certainly have to upgrade their CB position and offensive line. They could cut ties with some veterans, plug and play. However, that would still leave the same issues at CB and on the offensive line. If they intend to upgrade those areas, that would make the cap situation dicey.

    In the 2 years he's started Mendenhall has 20 rushing touchdowns. He also averages 4.2 ypc. The Steelers always want guys who can pound the ball and rush for scores. That's exactly what Mendenhall does. He just can't do it against us.

    Mendenhall often comes up short in big games and Pittsburgh fans have long been frustrated with his 'dancing' running style, despite his power. When you are afraid to get hit against your fiercest rival, in the most physical rivalry in football, it just does not fit. We've seen it too much from him.

    Remember all that "Fast" Willie Parker BS too? That got them only so far.

    They want another Jerome Bettis. There isn't one out there right now.
