    Re: Steelers woes continue



    I wasn't that surprised by the loss. The stage was set.

    "• The Broncos came in with a 38-13-1 record in home openers, the NFL’s best such record. They had won 24 of their previous 28.

    Re: Steelers woes continue

    I wish I could multi quote pretty much every post in this thread.

    The Steelers have a flawed, old, thin roster with holes everywhere. I have been saying it for months, and you saw it last night.

    They are a 9-7 or 8-8 team, although they could squeak out 10 wins if they get lucky. If they didnt have Ben it would be .500 at best.

    I took that utterly ridiculous -1 line and cleaned up last night, because the entire country is so blinded by the past which means nothing. All you had to do was look at the roster and it was clear as day.

    They won't "suck" with Ben at QB but this is a team that is not built for any type of run this year. Only saving grace might be the weakness of AFC depth, so they could easily squeak in postseason at 9-7 or something.

    They're going to have to make some tough decisions next off-season.

    Yep. Until they get out of this perpetual cycle of cap hell, and poor drafting they won't be getting number 7. Or close to it.

    The big choice next year will be Wallace, or cutting 3 significant vets to make room for him. Everyone thinks they can franchise him, but they don't realize they don't have $11 million in cap room to do it unless more deep cuts or restructures that jack up already insane cap numbers for the future are made.

    They keep trying to hang on to the 2008 glory, apparently a rebuild is not an option. I have no problem with them wallowing in mediocrity for a few years being hard headed though. Better for us.

    I think they made their decision when they re-signed Antonio Brown.

    Like you said, they don't have the room to franchise Wallace and unless they fork over big time $$$ for the guy, he's not re-signing in Pittsburgh. Ike Taylor is another one and so is James Harrison.
