I really didn’t see the value in him and I didn’t trust that deal at only one single season. I called him the Steelers Trash and it pissed a lot of people off; All I can tell you is that when we went 0-16, our defense sucked. And last year after we signed such a “Big Time Free Agent” like Foote, our defense sucked.
Was he better than anything we had at the time? Yes. But that’s like being the prettiest waitress at Denny’s. Just because you’re the best in this little pool here, it doesn’t make you good. Cap victim my ass. He was done and the Steelers knew it.
We need young starters; They don’t have to be the best in football at their position, they just need to do their job and not be at the ceiling of their development. That brings me to the other thing, that trade with the Texans. Great Move! You give up a late draft pick for a guy that is only 25, so he has a few years to get better and develop yet I feel his talent level is much higher than anyone we could have drafted at that point of the draft. Yet another good job by the Lions.
uh-oh! I think I’m drinking the kool-aid guys…
