It's not exactly news, but seeing this graphic really makes that knife twist a little more in the wound on the back.

If you are one of only two teams over the cap...and that other team is the Cowgirls...what does that tell you about your decision-making and management?

At least the Steelers have an excuse.  Three Superbowl appearances in 10 years and two wins.  Not saying the last few years haven't been mismanaged but I think it had more to do with the thinking that this team had one more run in it and trying to keep it together.

Probably more comparable to the Cowboys post the mid-90's superbowls than anything.

Steelers get under pretty quickly.  Cutting Levi Brown almost does that; restructure AB and Ben, done.  A few other moves to be done, I'm sure.

Looking at this again, there are troubling signs.  It's not just about being over the cap, which is bad enough on the heels of 8-8 and 8-8: check out the % of money invested in your top 10 players.  Steelers are at 79%, Cowboys 74%; most of the rest are ~50%, meaning they not only spread the wealth, but aren't killed if one of their top 10 earners is injured, or has age push him over a cliff.  Bears and Rams are only other teams >70%.

Top 10 in Steelers country includes notable question marks, if not outright head-scratchers: 

2. Woodley, $13.6M - way overpaid, off-season dedication to the Bettis program, ROI v. Worilds not favorable.  Huge dead money ding if cut ($14.2M, split over 2 years post 6/1).
3. Ike, $11.9M - Obviously, needs to take a large cut or be cut.
5. Troy, $10.9M - Willing to restructure?
8. Levi Brown, $6.3M - Capt. Obvious says the ax is soon to fall.
9. Maurkice, $5.5M - Freak accident injury or no, cheaper options exist.

2015 looks gutted.

Cowboys, Bears and Rams are not exactly the company we want to be keeping.  Hope the recent moves have rectified that to some degree.
