    But Jimmy made it blatantly clear that some players got different treatment than others.

    Was that about breaking the law too?

    Yeah I'm sure cutting the 4th string running back has the starters and stars of that team absolutely quaking in their cleats.

    It's hilarious how people try and make things like this into something that supposedly motivates and puts fear into the starters.

    This doesn't even make the real players on the team blink an eye.

    Pitt just announced they aren't ruling out drafting a QB this draft and want to "shake the roster up." Big Ben is only 28 and is a franchise QB with at least 6 years left.

    Meanwhile Dallas will extend Romo to 2020 and give him a max deal at 33.

    Probably looking to replace Leftwich and Batch, not the rapist, just yet.

    Get your facts straight. Big Ben is 30 years old right now and will turn 31 in March.

    It was about character, which I would assume would include that.

    This is true. He didn't try to white out the deal by producing some BS deal to the press like the Steelers do. They implement the Zero Tolerance for effect but don't really use it.

    Jimmy flat told you, this is how I run things and if you don't like it, you don't really need to waste a whole lot of time telling me that because I don't give to you know what's about what you think about it.

    Have a nice day!

    Probably would have destroyed their cap status to cut Ben.

    So you are saying that he tolerated starters, or stars, breaking the law but not scrubs.

    I thought the two sets of rules was more about your level of play, mistakes, attitude, following rules, etc.

    I could be wrong.

    Thanks for the correction but its irrelevant when it comes to the entire point of my post.

    Steelers organization looks to the future while Dallas constantly plays this "in the now" game until it catches up to us and we are in some sort of "hell" for 3-5 years.

    I would rather Dallas not announce their draft plans and strategy. Most teams don't, so it is surprising that the Steelers have done so. At this point, you have no idea if the Cowboys plan on drafting a QB at some point in this year's draft. And a few years ago they did look to the future when they drafted Stephen McGee. It didn't work out, but they did draft a young QB prospect.
