Drafting around 28

The Steelers are 2.5 million over the cap

Mann will retire...I expect Hines Ward replaces him. I won't be shocked to see Munchak as the new head coach of the Giants. I won't be shocked if Haley is gone.

It'll be 28 or 29 I believe, depending on the outcome of the Saints Vikings game.

I said the following in another thread.

If you want to make any splash(es) in FA you need to cut Mitchell, Wilcox, Gay, Sensabaugh, DHB, work something out with McDonald to lower his cap hit, have Shazier go on the exempt list, and not bring back Bell. I have no confidence in this organization to be willing to make those moves. They'll trim the edges but will come back with the same team. I love Bell but you can't have him at a 14M cap hit.

Tomlin is coach we won’t win dick. It’s officially hockey season. Tomlin is an idiot.

Hasn't Ward become a TV sports guy? I see his ass all over HLN and even CNN.

I'll be shocked if he gives that up to be a WR coach.

He seems to have a great relationship with Bryant and JuJu

I'd be shocked if Haley returns. Toss sweep against a fast, young, & aggressive defense on 4th & 1?
Draft a stud MLB to replace Shazier, and FA to get a more polished MLB that Vince. The 2nd level of the defense has many holes.
Draft or develop a successor to Bud Dupree - If the light comes on, great...I don't have much faith in him.
Find another FS - Mike Mitchell reminds me of Ryan Clark at the tail end of his career - 2 steps too slow, and still won't shut up.
Another WR might be needed if Bryant's head is not on straight. He's beaten the odds so far - having made it through a full without a drug violation. Still his ability to pick up where he left off was limited. His lashing out via social media - is that a thing of the past?
Draft/FA - RB - Steelers need a viable, durable compliment to Bell.

I came to that conclusion (your first sentence) a while ago. He isn't an idiot, but he certainly is challenged at playoff time. 2008 was a flash in the pan it appears.

How about drafting “football” players with brains instead of “athletic freaks” dumber than a box of rocks! That could be a good start. We have passes on guys who have become good quality players to take our athletic freaks who have no brains and play like baby shit. I saw Dupree on the ground or going to the ground on every running play to his side! He couldn’t set the edge on my father-in-law who is in a walker.
