well i guess the Steelers owed Matt "we want the ball and we're going to score" Hasselbeck.

4-3 defense, easy as that.

Along with that get rid of Hampton, Keisel, etc.

I think this much is obvious: something has to change with this team.

Look at our top paid stars...

- Troy can't stay healthy...ever.
- Harrison looks like garbage. He's not getting tothe QB at all.
- Ike Taylor went from one of the better shutdown DBs to nothing. Garbage player.
- Hampton isn't stuffing the run.

How much money does that give us? Especially if Wallace goes, too.

Enough to pay quality players who will actually play the game of football more effectively.

Kicker has below-average leg strength---set him up for a 50+FG

That last drive past the Ben run on 3rd down was just terrible. There was no urgency to move the ball and get first downs. It was like they were satisfied to take a 50+FG with a minute left. I have no clue why they ran it on 2nd down and didn't call a TO after the initial play. Batch had 20 yards on 10 carries and they run it there when they need yards badly. Just stupid. They needed to get some yards not set up a long FG attempt. Bad play-calling at the end there killed them after such a good first 5-6 plays of the drive.

But how often do we even try to bring UFA's in? I realize we're close to the cap on most years, but still? Kevin Greene. Jeff Hartings. James Farrior. It's really rare

Throw Woodley on top of that. He can't stay healthy at all either.

hard to imagine it isn't a training staff problem. too many injuries to be sheer bad luck.

hear that, it's the Tank revving its engines

Honestly I would be totally okay with them finishing 4-12 or something since the only way an organization that absolutely hates change will change is if things go real badly like they are. Clean house of players and defensive system and get a high draft pick. There's nothing worst than being a middle of the road team that misses the playoffs and picks in the middle of the first round.

Do not fear the Tank.
