I know I saw a time when cuts have to be made by but I can't find it.  I think it was 1pm?

When do you think they'll get posted?

It's now 4:20 Eastern... I wonder how much longer until the steelers post the cuts on their website or a news agency posts it.

It's ashame Capizzi didn't stick as a development/inactive guy.  Understand the thinking that Essex has starting experience in the NFL.  But it's a short-sighted approach.

I am surprised by the Okobi cut, really.   I thought he'd be needed for depth.

Young too, I thought he was solid.

Though, it looks like they protected Stapleton, which is good.  

Really hate to see Haynes gone.  Best pass pro guy we have/had.  

While one-dimensional, Kreider is a good choice for 2007.  Probably not beyond.

So Philip's injury isn't bad?  At first, thought that I'd keep Philip on IR and dump Okobi later.  But I'm sure Okobi falls into the tenured vet category that guarantees his sal after Week 1.  

Heavy on LBs.  Didn't know that was necessary (to keep A. Harrison AND Goo both) considering Timmons and Woodley.  

Don't think it was necessary to keep BSP.  He isn't going to be a sought after commodity by other teams and would have been on the PS here or played in Canada.

What are the odds of Okobi signing with the AZ?

That's EXACTLY how I figured it would play out.

I'd have kept Verron over Carey Davis. I realize I am in the minority, though. Didn't expect it.  Also I'm sure the Steez and Norwig and Bradley have a much better reading on how healthy Haynes is these days.

Philip is supposedly fine. If we had IR'd Philip he'd have been done for the year. By rule. So Okobi's vested status wouldn't have come into play there. Gotta have two C's mininum. It sucks for Chukwun, and I know he was Ben's favorite there, but if he's healthy he'll catch on elsewhere.

If Walter Young ever signs here again I'd be shocked. It's not workin' out, man!

Kreider deserved to make it and I correctly didn't buy into the hype of being on the bubble. Apparently. I'd use him in all of our goalline sets. The tricky, versatile 3-TE shit be damned. SEND IT IN DAMMIT!!1!

I haven't seen anything from Colclough considering he's a traded-up-for second-round pick. All the abuse Zo Jackson took being drafted third-to-last that one year and unable to make a transition from DL to 3-4 OLB and Coot seems immune. I also would have kept him (since Jovon Johnson and Madison will always seem to be around and Colclough would have ended up starting at RCB for New England or something) but he's gotta show something big this year, dammit.

Did we go heavy on LBs? I think we've always done that, no? Four LBs have to start. Woodley and Timmons will dress every game. Kriewaldt is there for depth/special teams. And you'd have to figure Wallace/A. Harrison will battle it out to see who dresses on the gameday 45. Slight edge to Goo since he's more of an ILB.


St. P was tragically bad this preseason IMO. We've lost all that flexibility that helped us to keep two QBs when Randle El left. You can't have just two QBs active. I agree that when you get down to the third guy you're screwed most times (there is a reason they designate them the "emergency" QB) anyway but if Ben and Batch both went down in the first half of a game with serious injuries I'd want at least a chance of winning with a QB that at the very least knows the playbook. I'd be busting my ass on the waiver wire though. We can't find a better #3? Palko get cut yet?

Capizzi? Tough luck there, kid. He seems like a decent enough worker and his size should get him another look. Hopefully elsewhere, though.

Essex has had some rocky moments but I refuse to beat him up because he couldn't beat out Marvel. Smith's one of the better guys in the league IMO. Essex started a few games for us in our title season, didn't do great, but as a rookie I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. He seems to be an ok backup to me. I trust him a lot more than I have his competition the past few years. Burr,

No surprises at all, except perhaps Darnell Stapleton, who leapfrogged his R5 Rutgers teammate Cameron Stephenson to make the cut; this, after spending ~3 weeks out of camp injured.  But, he was a Rimington finalist as noted often.  Capizzi, I hope sticks with us.  I think he could develop rather nicely.  He's raw, and apparently too much so.  Young wore down yet again, so as August waned, so did Mr. August.  He'll always be a phone call away.  BSP, IMO, still hasn't made the team.  One decent waiver wire sighting and he could be turds swirling down the bowl.

Okobi was the real litmus test.  Cowher would have kept him, and that Tomlin didn't suggests a new way of thinking.  I like Chukky, really.  Funny guy, good enough backup, but coming to that wrong point in his career.  

I think my prediction was pretty close, Capizzi excepted.  Nua looked doomed, as did McBean, Cam, and Dallas.  Dallas was a big zero, but a R7, so, meh.  McBean and Cam might stick on the PS.  

Oh, it's a bad day for AJ when his pay league and Michigan both fold, and Willie MUTHUHFUCKIN Reid makes the cut.  I feel for ya brother, the way a dog feels for a fire hydrant.

Madison and Lorello might be decent taxi keepers, but I wouldn't mind if the FO did a little fishing.    IMO, Tomlin did well here.

I know Y2J likes Haynes, but he ripped that knee up pretty badly.  Showed well in the PS, but I have little confidence it would have lasted, and frankly, Gary Russell put the lead in my pencil.  Ecstatic that they kept the little retard.  He really could develop into a very nice COP back, and maybe somedayt be groomed as The Man.  Love having both Davis and Danny Kreider.  Davis will be fun to watch.

No surprises on the cuts  But....

Steelers Release 23 Players Following Trade With Atlanta;

   Additionally, the Steelers traded a 2008 conditional draft pick to the Atlanta Falcons for return specialist/cornerback Allen Rossum. Rossum (5-8, 178), a 10-year veteran from Notre Dame, was originally drafted in the third round (85th overall) of the 1998 by the Philadelphia Eagles. He then was traded to the Green Bay Packers and spent two seasons (2000-01) with the team before signing with the Falcons as an unrestricted free agent on March 13, 2002.

   Rossum, a 2005 Pro Bowl selection as a special teams returner, holds the Falcons record for career punt return yards (1,723), career kickoff return yards (5,489) and career punt returns for touchdowns (2).

   All NFL teams may sign up to eight players to their practice squad after noon on Sunday, Sept. 2.

I've always kind of liked Rossum. You had to know the Steelers were interested in bringing in another returner when the reports surfaced about them contacting Drummond after he was released.

Not sure what he's done recently.... but when I was down there Rossum was a burner and he was one of those guys that could be a "game changer" every time he touched the ball.

Anyone else puzzled we now have only one C?  Does the FO have eyes on someone else's cut?

Maybe Tomlin is planning on using Kendall Simmons as an emergency C in case Mahan would go down.  Stick Phillip on the practice squad.  Tomlin has been preaching versatility since he has been hired.

I am a little surprised that both Okobi and Phillips went. Same with Wallace. I think we haven't seen the last of Verron. Willie Reid sure is lucky. He better prove that they were right to keep him. WTF is Pea hair still around for? Cut his ass and resign Verron.

I really don't understand why we kept Pee Hare.  

Under Cowher, cutting Iwuoma would be a big deal.  Under Tomlin, and with more starters playing ST's, doesn't seem as big a deal.

Is Stapleton considered an OC (believe he was in college) or OG?

I would have gone with Goo or A. Harrison, not both.  So "heavy" was referring to keeping both.  Maybe we've had that # of LBs every year.  Just thought with Timmons and Wood, as well as starters on STs, that it might make sense to use a roster spot elsewhere.

Edit:  Though this is all for nothing as I just read back a few posts to see that Goo is gone.
