Doug Legursky is not a starting caliber offensive lineman. At all. Any OL with him in it is worse than one with him out of it.

Steelers need to simply get the hell away from Colon, Keisel, and possibly Ike, pay Lewis, and that allows us to draft BPA in the 1st and grab a Xavier Rhodes or Jonathan Banks.

and then we might have 2 CBs who can actually catch a football


If we did let those people go/cut them, I would much rather not pay Lewis, and keep Taylor, while drafting Rhodes or Banks.

Starting Allen and Ike in 2013, then Rhodes/Banks moving in 2014. Curtis Brown will always be a nickel.


Why in God's green Earth would you let Lewis walk?! He was great this year, and will only get better.

I have to agree with SC. I'll take Lewis'potential and the next eight years over Ike's final two.

Lewis did better because LeBeau switched from mainly zone to mostly bump man coverage. Now they have 3 CBs that excel at that ( Ike, Lewis and Allen).

That's the main factor, IMO. I think Lake did a great job as well.

Steelers front office is no place is no place to be a fan. They have to make smart businesses decisions and if Harrison & Ike don't make sense there gone simple as that.

I agree. But Lewis has shown himself capable of being a knuckle head. I'm just worried that the contract year was a real motivator for him that won't be there next year. I want Lewis back and I want to believe in him but I have my doubts
