    Nevermind, he fixed it...

    Seems he's implying that last time it happened, they won the Super Bowl, so it should spell good things for them.

    Good luck with that.

    Cap wise, they really put themselves in a bad situation.


    To make matters worse they havent drafted well in a few seasons either.

    I'm not sure that's really far off. Not saying we won;t be good, but the Bengals seem to have a bunch of the right pieces.

    Not with dalton at qb. The only reason he got a win against us last year is because we put the JV team out there.

    I have to give credit, they started getting over the humps last year. The longer Jay Gruden is on staff with them, AND Hue Jackson, the better the chances that he keeps developing.

    I wouldn't mind a dogfight between us and the Bengals for the division for the next few years. Hopefully a healthy Webb will negate AJ Green.

    I agree. Dalton hasn't shown he can play well in big games to this point. They still have holes on offense that need to be addressed.

    The comment about the Ravens turning to a youth movement is more laughable. We've been doing that since 2010 and only now are we reaping the dividends from it.

    Re: Pittsburgh's March Massacre

    I've done and re-done the Steelers 2013 cap and $14 million over the cap just isn't right. Perhaps that is the number of just their roster right now, not counting any of their Restricted Free Agents or ERFAs. The Steelers, by my calculations, have $103 m tied up in just 11 players. When you take their top 23 players, including their RFAs, they go up to around $125 million. So that's $4 million over the cap before we even add the other 28 players needed to determine their "rule of 51". Assuming the average for those other 28 players is $575-600, that puts them about $22-25 million over the cap.

    They're screwed.

    Here is a thread I found about them discussing their cap.

    You mean all the young players that made just about every big play in the playoffs? That youth movement?
