The troupe that defeated us last time canceled their show so we took their place at last night's King of the Mountain.  I think we were supposed to be cannon fodder for the hot new troupe that has all the cool kids who are already in performing troupes. 

So we had our best show yet and beat their arses!  BAM!  It was a tie, so we had a quick scene featuring 3 players from each troupe then a crowd-noise vote.  Yup, Juan Direction came out on top (thanks in large part to my daughter's loud mouth)!

So we're back for another show next week.

Maybe this will be one of those occasions where the proverbial change-of-scenery makes all the difference.  It would be sweet to see DHB blow past coverage on a 3rd and 10 and catch a deep ball in stride.

Meh on DHB.  If they wanted a speedy ex-Raider, would have preferred Jacoby Ford.  Decent rookie year, couple years of injuries held him back, but I think he still has an opportunity to become a threat.  Plus could take some KR duties.

Neither one are Pro Bowlers, but feels like DHB had more opportunity and didn't capitalize, although he had the pressure of being drafted waaaaaay to high.

How much cap space should signing draftees and UDFAs take of Woodley's ~$8m post-June 1? 

5, 6 million?

If he sucks, he won't be on the 53.  Depth chart was ABrown, Moore, Wheaton and Moye.  Yikes

Sanders had a problem with drops last year (probably not as badly)

Really wish we could have brought Cotchery back and signed Moore with Wheaton and a rookie from Rd 1-2. 

Hope Heath stays healthy and is somewhat more productive than last year.  He's likely seen his best days but if he's healthy, I hope he can play a larger role.

How much cap space should signing draftees and UDFAs take of Woodley's ~$8m post-June 1?  The Steelers could sign a FA or an early-mid preseason castoff, though I would think getting a WR on the team at that point is near, well, pointless.  Too difficult to learn routes in-time

One year, probably for whatever Colbert could root out from the sofa cushions:  stale peanuts, a stray button, a few plastic army men, 37 cents in loose change...

Low-risk signing.  Yeah, he drops shit all over the field, but he gives us some speed and if he bounces back, yippie.

Heyward-Bey was awful last year, has been a disappointment obviously since drafted.  Did post 64-975-15.2 in 2011 and 41-608-14.8 in 2012, so there's that.  Probably could have had 1800 yards in 2011 if he didn't drop half the passes thrown to him.

* Steal of the draft.

If I nail this perfectly, will Mr. Rooney give me a million dollars?  That's a thing now, right?

Not a fan of DHB, but there seems to be a recurrent theme with a lot of our FA signings (McCain, Mitchell, even Moats; Moore isn't straight-line fast but has some crafty speed).

On one hand, we have AB and Moore; Wheaton still has to prove it; the other guys are just guys so far, or not even that.  That's awfully thin.  Now, if we sign DHB, he can be a decent speed option, especially if he's just a situational guy.    I still think we need to draft 1 and maybe 2 WRs this year even if we do sign DHB.

Yeah, I had looked at that and there were some guys from his list (Chris Smith:  OLB - Ark.; Josh Mauro:  DE - Stanford; Morgan Breslin:  OLB - USC) that I had considered for that GM thread you created.  In the end, I went with the guys that I thought brought the most value, regardless of position.
