Still responsible for the GREATEST play in super bowl history.  I can watch that play and Troy's pick-6 against Fucco and Co. over and over again on a loop until the end of time and not get sick of it.

Likely no XLIII without James.

Just not feeling any confidence this season...again. Feels like a repeat of 1999/2000.

What's out there to give the Steelers hope for this season? BangHead buck2

Cleveland waived Shaw.  Sign him, cut Landry.

Pretty ticked that they let him get by on the waiver wire. Watched a lot of Shaw's games w/the Gamecocks up close. I think he could be a respectable backup, and also fit into the old ARE role. Very tough, talented athlete, smart and resilient.

The one downside is that the current offense isn't remotely geared towards his skill set as a QB.

25 y.o. Ali Villanueva, who's a couple of years from having played any football after his Army stint, cut by Eagles.  Army = WR, Eagles = DE...  But Munchak sees the 6'9" 297# guy as an OT.  Might be the most interesting story no one's talking about.  The guy can move, can catch, and if Munch can get his leverage right, he could be a LT/TE guy with a ton of upside. 

Stole my idea of taking one of the DE (Arnfelt, Williams) and converting to OT.

Cleveland waived Shaw.  Sign him, cut Landry.  A few other QB3s I'd take as well.

Sign 92 so he can retire a Steeler; cut one of the 5 S, either Allen or Golden, and sign a waiver OLB.  Maybe Barrett, who played for Porter at CSU?

I get that they see Landry as an investment but at some point, it's a sunk cost and you move on once the ROI is crap

I woulda put in a claim on Jon Simon.  I think that kid outta Texas (Jeffcoat) was in the first round of cuts (Seattle?).  Seemed the Steelers were interested in all 3, including the CSU kid.  Howard Jones may or may not be but they let go of two guys.  Gotta bring in someone else with some promise 'cause we were also over Adrian Robinson and Alan Baxter as up and comers for 2012 and 2013 respectively; none that I can see for 2010 and 2011 PSer LBs.

We still don't have a punter.  Wing got a lot of work last Thursday and got 3 inside the 20.  Still not impressed and this is a position the Steelers have had problems with since Sepulveda.

And i'm finally willing to acknowledge that Lebeau is no longer a guru.  Has been toying with the subpackage but his ends are small, his mids not big enough and his corners can't cover well enough w/o the pressure.  This is a gloom and doom I've felt re: the OLBs.  Woodley at least had the size and strength (and sometimes weight); JJ can't.  Worilds as the second best OLB is fine.  Worst tandem since before Gildon arrived; maybe since '88 Hinkle and Jones?

Is it me or does JJ look...faster in this game?

Yeah, if he's blocked by farts.
