My Viking fan friends are predicting both teams leave London 0-3-1, which would be fitting to have a football game end in a tie in England.

Im personally hoping for a Blutarskyesque 0-0 score today. Let two entire nations witness our pain.

I'd take that, as my FF opponent has heath on his bench and didn't pick up a kicker on his starters bye week.

Ok, so who should the Steelers target in the draft next year? If they go 0-16, should they draft Bridgewater? I know Troy Loney is all for that.

He started 79 games, failing to ever become an even moderately effective player. So far this season, Brown has graded out 60th among 72 of PFF's qualifying tackles. That said, he's a slight upgrade on current Pittsburgh LT Mike Adams

I fail to see the point in trading any draft pick(s) for one of the worst starting LTs in the league (doesn't really matter that he's better than the crap they have playing their right now), who is signed at a hefty price through the 2015 season, when you are 0-4 and the season is already lost. Its a pathetic, idiotic, moronic panic move by a team refusing to accept reality. It adds more salary to the teams' yearly salary cap issues, saddles the team with another talentless old fart (turns 30 next season), and though the return isn't known (expected to be one or more late round picks) it strips the team of draft picks that could be used to trade up in the draft or even find a diamond in the rough young talent late in the draft.

Edit: Guaranteed money is up after this season, so they can dump him more easily.


This management team sucks and I hate them.

Can't they be free of any salary after this year?

Yea they are, that was the point of my edit. Regardless of that, I fail to see the point of the move. Your season is over. Getting a sucky LT to replace a slightly suckier LT isn't going to help. It turns Ben into a sitting duck, but at this point they would be better off letting Adams and Gilbert start all season long. Give them 12 more games to figure stuff out and if they can't you address the need next season. Additionally, whatever draft pick they send to the Cardinals would be better used on a young player or as part of a trade to move up in the draft. The Steelers are old and their talent is fading. Unless they embrace this reality, their delusion is going to force them into sucking for a long time instead of trying to rebuild quickly.

I didn't realize this trade actually happened. I thought people were just discussing hypothetically. That shows how little sense I think this trade makes. If anything, the Steelers should be trading away over-priced, under-performing veterans, not acquiring them.

Can't find a team dumb enough to take them. No one else has this management team.

Yeah, it doesn't make any sense. I'm not sure why they care, the season is over.

I think it was mentioned on here before I ran with the idea, but I expect to be collecting on that bet shortly.
