Yeah, but some of you are acting like our running game will fall apart without Williams. I just don't believe it.


I don't believe that either, especially with Tolbert in the mix.

DeAngelo is expendable, but it has far more to do with the emergence of Cam and his contract than it does his performance or ability.

Also, some may disagree, but the Steelers are taking a much bigger risk by cutting Harrison than we would be by cutting Williams. Just saying.

In any event, the Steelers are going to have a problem if they don't begin replacing all the relatively old and/or broken down vets they have. The Panthers seem to be in a better overall place in regards to the future of the franchise in my opinion.

He wasn't even a factor in the postseason.

Steelers have plenty to worry about. Their OL is still a huge question mark, their D is old and is now without one of their better players, they want to get back to running but have who at RB? Their second best playmaker on O is gone, Polamalu is old and oft injured, ect...

They missed the playoffs last year...

Yeah, they're fine.

You have to get to the postseason first. Without him, they don't do it.

That's debatable. Him just being in the game makes you change your defense. Stats only tell a part of the story.

Eh, defenses feared Anquan and Smith more.

You're the one who said "he's 30 now." You were wrong, I pointed it out.

I'm not arguing that he's overpaid and I wouldn't have been too upset with letting him go, but you formulated a bad argument with a bad contract to Harrison.

Also, citing the Steelers as your example the year after they feel to make the playoffs also has a ring of irony to it.


I know he is 29 today....you didn't point that out. Fact is he should be refered to as a 30 yr old RB bc he will never play a single down at 29.

Steelers have a LONG history of with guys after they became stars. It is part of there model. Like I said, don't get too caught up in a direct Harrison/Williams comparison that you miss the real point.

If you run your business smart like the Steelers you part with guys before they are washed up. You do it for a variety of different reasons but you part with them. We are steadily doing the opposite.

oh no doubt ray is good..but not elite. ap is the only true elite back in this game. (imo)

also he only had 59 rushing yards in the superbowl with no tds.
