Letting Bettis and his huge salary go and securing Fu and Famous Amos? I am beginning to think so. While I love the Bus, he has become very injury prone and I think he is partly to blame for our AFC Championship loss. I think we could at least get a first and third round pick for him and Fu and Amos are more than ready to shoulder the Steeler running attack.

Then we could let Holmes go and have a high draft pick to draft a new Middle Linebacker and use the lower first round on a solid DB. Or visa versa and grab a top rate DB like Roy Williams. Then we could move Flowers to Free Safety and have the next Ronnie Lott on that defense.

Am I crazy or not?



If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

You're not crazy at all. I think Jerome's talents have deteriorated slightly in the last few years. I think he's getting to the point where he will be a better situational back, rather than an every down back. Role players can't be some of the highest paid players on your team.

Of course, it's hard to let go of someone who has worked very hard and for a long while for your team.

I think they'll keep him around myself, but you're not wrong in looking at what could be done instead.

While that is not a bad thought, the Rams also thought he was expendable, and as soon as they traded him, he had huge seasons for the Steelers.

I agree with ya. Did the steelers' running game suffer when Bettis got injuried? No. The key success was the o-line.

Hugging without consent is a crime? I take it theres more to that story than his wanting to spread a little love?
