Yeah, getting Mendenhall back should be a plus.  But do they lose Moore?  He was a huge contributor.


Moore will be back next year, if they want him.  My notes have him signing a 3 year, $4.95M contract last offseason with a $1.35M bonus.

Oh, good.  Couldn't remember what his deal was.  In that case you're right, he's back!

I thought we played the NFC South?  If it's the north then I'm very disappointed.  Was looking forward to seeing them play either in Charlotte or Atlanta.

I think we played them in 2007, because I was contemplating going to those games myself.  hopefully they'll be back in '11.

If we don't get at least one prime OL in FA (and rely exclusively on the draft) then there will almost certainly be a transition year as the new draftees get acclimated to the pro game (unless Tony Hills bubbles up).

I am a little less concerned about DL depth than others, but it a growing concern.

I agree that McFadden might be the only STeelers FA to actually strongly chase.  His loss would be pretty significant.  I think his injury, and relatively quiet (no INTs, although it was fairly strong in terms of production) return might make him affordable.

Sepulveda will be back, and I think that the improved play of Timmons, Mendenhall and Sweed will be very helpful. 

Ultimately whether we regress or not (hard to get better following a SB win) will depend on the OL and free agency.  Heck, I am still shocked we just won the SB with that unit.  Going into the season I thought it was such a fatal flaw that we might have difficulty making the playoffs.

That's what I hate about you fair weather fans. What, you can't be bothered to take the short drive from South Carolina or Georgia to Minnesota?
