Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me

MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.

Article from CNNSI.COM

http://sportsillustr...steelers.coach/


The good news for us is that here is another team that will be switching to the 4-3 from a 3-4. More players that won't fit there system will be out on the street for our taking!!!

Couple that with the possibility that Parcells leaves...there may be a plethora of 3-4 players out in the FA ranks for us after June 1st cuts or sooner!

It's going to be weird seeing the steelers running a 4-3, I wonder what are they going to do with there linebackers.

Thanks for the Memories

I heard that the Steelers might end up cutting Porter because they arent in a good cap situation. If that happens hopefully Mr.T jumps all over him!

I know, if he does hit the UFA, then we better get out there and get him, he is a tremendous player. Would be a instant upgrade over Hobson. That would be a sick pair of pass rush between Thomas and Porter. Our defense would be improved alot!!

It hasn't happened yet. There are conflicting stories. See the article below.

PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers have narrowed their wish list of candidates to replace Bill Cowher to three names -- Russ Grimm, Ron Rivera and Mike Tomlin -- but have not yet made a decision on their next head coach.

A report on Sports Illustrated's Web site, SI.com, on Saturday indicated that Tomlin had been chosen as the successor to Cowher, but the Vikings' defensive coordinator told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that no decision had been made.

"It is untrue," Tomlin said of the report. "I have no idea where it's coming from. I have not talked to the Rooneys today."

Sources also told ESPN.com's John Clayton that the report was incorrect, and the Steelers are not expected to make a decision Saturday.

The team also did not confirm the report Saturday.

"We have heard all the rumors, and we have nothing to confirm at this point," Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Tomlin and Grimm, the only remaining in-house candidate, both had their second interviews earlier this week. The Steelers can't talk to Rivera again until the Bears are eliminated from the playoffs. Chicago plays New Orleans in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Are we even sure they're going to switch to a 4-3?

Isn't that a pretty big assumption? Sure Tomlin was very successful with his 4-3...but that doesn't mean he wouldn't keep the 3-4. I'll wait and see before I get excited about the Steelers maybe trading Hampton.

I heard on ESPN Radio today that no deal had been made. Would be a big hit to the Queens to lose Tomlin after have a good defensive season. I think that Pittsburgh will bring in Tomlin or Rivera and stay with defensive head coaches. The only way I see Grimm becoming head coach is if Pittsburgh feels he will go elsewhere unless he's the head coach, and I don't think that Russ Grimm has that sort of mentality.

it would allow us to trade up for a guy like marshawn lynch because olb would be taken care of ....a.thomas is 29 and joey porter is 29....... a.thomas 6-2 270lbs, joey porter is 6-3 250lbs, joey porter is the champ bailey of the olb position.........porter was injured alot this season

If the jets got Hampton I would do a little dance. He is a top notch NT.

If the Steelers would trade Hampton, I would give them Robertson and a 3rd round pick for him! Our defense would be set with him in the middle!!! And its official, Tomlin did sign with the Steelers, go look at it on Espn.com

I heard their DE Smith might be cutted also, I would love to sign him, he is a real force at DE. Man I wish we could just trade some of our 4-3 players and get some of their 3-4 players!

Whilst their players are 3-4 players they aren't just going to go out and cut three top quality defensive players just because they don't fit the system. It would be idiotic for them just to cut Porter without first looking to find a trading partner, the same with Smith and Hampton. Plus it will take more than a 3rd rounder and DRob to get Hampton, it would probably take a 2nd and a player. Also Hampton could also play as a 4-3 DT as he is good against the run.

Tomlin isn't just going to dump three top quality defensive players just because they haven't played in the 4-3. Porter has the size to be a 4-3 MLB or could possibly be moved to DE whilst Aaron Smith is a shade over 300lbs so could be moved to the under tackle in a 4-3.
