Just read this on the Bleacher Report:

Who is willing to take a chance on a 35 year old baby with more drama than a sixteen year old girl?



The only thing worse than Hines not being there next year (has anyone heard anything about this?) was if TO was to take his place! A great fit?? This guy's on some serious chemicals...

Jesus God, what a friggin' moron!!
Does he really think Tomlin would do that???

Tomlin is many things, but he's not stupid.
Hell, I'd rather have Plax back than TO!

The thought of that is gonna give me nightmares.... tickedoff

I have no idea what the Bleacher Report is.

And for once in my life, I'm comfortable in my ignorance.

If what I keep reading is true Hines Ward will not be a Steeler next year.



No need to read any further.

The Bleacher Report is the result of googling Mike Tomlin on Google News in the late afternoon when you're bored at work

Tomlin doesn't run the organization, the Rooney's do.  Does anyone in their right mind see the Rooney's or any faction of the Steeler front office considering talking to that POS? 

Get a grip.

I haven't heard it on any of the local sports radio or tv shows.  I'm not sure where this guy is getting his information from, but I think he's way off on his little Hines Ward rumor.

As for T.O. in Pittsburgh, is it even worth debating? Will never happen.

"Tomlin could keep Owens in line",


What leads him to believe this? Is Tomlin a part time head shrink?  This is where it all begins with Owens.  These dumb organizations feel they can keep these type of athletes in line and the end results are always the same.

I could type something like This certainly looks like a great time to invest in GM and Citibank, and then I could read what I had just written, and read it again, and again, and again.

And then I could write some bullshit like:  If what I keep reading is true, this would be a great time to pick up shares in GM and Citibank.

Boy, that was easy.  I just started a rumor by implying multiple credible sources, when in fact the only source I have is some talking polyp up my ass, where my head is.

BTW, Hines's birthday (33) is Sunday.  TO's 35 already, and will be 36 this December.  Not only has he been a well-chronicled boil on the ass of every team he's played for, but he had a significant number of drops last season, which might indicate to anyone paying attention -- hell, even Jerry Jones, for that matter -- that perhaps TO's vaunted receiving skills might be on the wane. 

So let's see.  I should replace Mr. Consistency, who has been a Steeler since day one, is two and a half years younger than TO, and whose game is in no way predicated to foot speed, with Mr. Better Living Through Fucking With Team Chemistry hisself, who's about to join Marvin Harrison (36, still unsigned) in the twilight years?  At least Harrison wasn't a douche his whole career, just did his job, put up amazing numbers, tarnished his rep somewhat with that gun thing in Philly and now will be scratching the Isaac Bruce dirt path to retirement.

Ward has a few years left.  I'm going out on a limb to say whatever Owens's stats the last few years, inflated in that gaudy Dallas scheme, he's next in the Bruce...Harrison...Ow ens succession of decline.  Those guys will show you a few nice catches and people will say, Awww, see, they're back, when in fact they're not, they're on the nostalgia train.  Two years from now, Limas Sweed has a better chance of cracking a 1,000 yards than Owens does.  Two years from now, Owens will be doing situps in his driveway, and the neighbor will be mowing his lawn and blowing clippings all over him.  Two years from now, Owens will be getting in some celebrity boxing ring with Manute Bol or Fridge Perry or Screech or one of those peckers from 90210. 

Two years from now, Hines Ward may still be putting up 600, 700, 800 yards, maybe not the Steelers' leading receiver, but taking the hits and jumping up with the patented smile and first down signal.  And TO and Freddie Mitchell can share a beer and watch. 

Only thing I'd pay TO to do would be to wipe my ass, cuz I eat Kashi and on a daily basis shit bigger than that asteroid that just missed the earth.  I'd like to see TO come to Dan Rooney, hat in hand, begging for a job, and Rooney, all, what?, 130 pounds of him, kicking him out of the building.  Literally.  As in, Get outta here, you punk, and every step of the way, TO's begging him, Please, every other team has turned me down, you're my last chance, and Dan just keeps landing kick after kick on TO.  Snapping the head back with a nice cheek shot when TO's on his knees, catching his heel on TO's lip, landing a few shots to the kidneys, winding down with a little homage to the ultraviolence with a stirring rendition of Singing in the Rain and a nice glass of milk whilst listening to some Ludwig van.

That is going out on a limb.  At a young age, Sweed drops a much higher % of passes than TO.

I think that is more like 2 months from now.

This guy should read this over and over and over again...

Quote
Don't expect Terrell Owens to pop up for a visit to Pittsburgh any time soon unless his next team plays at Heinz Field in the fall.

Don't expect the Steelers to go after Jason Taylor, just as no one should have fallen for the Jeff Saturday-is-interested-in-playing here line, either.

By now, anyone over the age of 25 should know how the Steelers operate. They do not suffer malcontents, do not overpay for over-the-hill talent, do not bring in big names because they are big names, and they do not hurt their future or their bottom line for a hamburger today. And just because someone was born within 30 miles of the Golden Triangle does not mean he has a roster spot on the Steelers. That went out with the '60s.

They are as predictable as the Redskins missing the playoffs.

The Steelers do sign free agents, though, sometimes spectacularly so -- their own. That is their priority. Not to necessarily throw money after other team's free agents, but to try to keep the good players on their own team. With few exceptions, they've done a nice job of that through the years.

Among their re-signings the past several seasons were Troy Polamalu, Aaron Smith, James Farrior, Casey Hampton, Willie Parker, Ike Taylor, James Harrison, Max Starks, Chris Kemoeatu, Kendall Simmons, Larry Foote, Brett Keisel, Deshea Townsend, Chris Hoke, Jeff Reed and, of course, Ben Roethlisberger.

Believe it or not, those count, as do players such as Ryan Clark, Justin Hartwig, Farrior and Mewelde Moore they signed from other teams.

They might have had all kinds of money and cap room now to throw after free agents such as T.J. Houshmandzadeh had they not signed Roethlisberger to his $102 million extension. But then, who's going to throw to him? Don't think Polamalu's contract isn't having an effect on negotiations between the Steelers and James Harrison.

Many are praising the efforts of the New York Jets in free agency, especially their attempts to beef up their defense. One ESPN commentator proclaimed the Jets a force in the AFC East because of who they signed. It takes more than one or two players to save a defense, however. And good luck with that quarteback thing. The Jets made a mess of their quarterback position by signing Brett Favre and cutting Chad Pennington last year. Brilliant move.

The Steelers make mistakes, of course, such as re-signing Kendall Simmons to nearly $8 million in a signing bonus in what may have been a panic move, and then releasing him 18 months later. But there are few, and they seem to have a good eye when they do sign a lower-tiered free agent from elsewhere, such as Moore.

Fans, though, cannot expect to be entertained this time of year by a parade of free agents coming to Pittsburgh for inspection, or for any major signings of a free agent not the Steelers' own. It goes with the territory, and that philosophy has served them well since free agency began 15 years ago.
