It's been a fun first year (at least until mid-November) of blogging at D.C. Steeler Nation, but I'll be going on hiatus for a few months. I'll be checking in periodically, especially around the draft, to air my uneducated views on the Steelers off-season priorities and how I think they've fucked it all up.
Meanwhile, coaching decisions are being second-guessed but no coaches are being fired. And every one who's ever played for the Steelers is having surgery. Huzzah.
Somehow, the team, despite having no appreciable offensive line during the year, has the best linemen going onto the market. Doesn't bode well for addressing that problem in free agency. If they could keep Faneca, that would be grand, if unlikely. I think Max Starks' worth is a little deceptive after a few satisfactory games late this season and isn't worth the money it would take to sign the highest rated tackle on the market. With Woodley coming on late in the year and Timmons being largely unused, I think Clark Haggans can be jettisoned.
Thanks for reading. Of course, you can always catch me slinging dick jokes over at Kissing Suzy Kolber. Enjoy spending the rest of the postseason drinking heavily and rooting against New England.
