    Hello,
    Here’s my 53 man roster

    QB’s 3 same but I like Dixon as #2
    RB’s 5 Parker,Mendenhall,Moore,Redman,Frank Summers-fb=due to more upside and Davis is a RFA in 2010.
    WR’s 5 same
    TE’s 3 same
    OL’s you have 10, the Steeler’s had 9 at the end of the 2009 season, I have 8 Hartwig-c,Essex-g/t,Kemoeatu-g,Starks-t,Colon-t,Foster-g/t,Stapleton-g/c,Urbik-g.
    DL’s you have 6, the Steeler’s had 7 at the end of the 2009 season, I also have 7 Smith-de,Hampton-nt,Keisel-de,Hood-de,Hoke-nt,Kirschke-de,Harris-de
    LB’s you have 8, the Steeler’s had 9 at the end of the 2009 season, again I have 9 Woodley-olb,Farrior-ilb,Timmons-ilb,Harrison-olb,Frazier-olb,Fox-ilb,Woods-ilb,Bailey-olb,Davis-olb=showed up at the 1st preseason game and A Harrison is injury prone.
    DB’s 9 Taylor-cb,Clark-fs,Polamalu-ss,Gay-cb,Townsend-cb/s,Ratliff-s/cb,Mundy-s,Lewis-cb,Burnett-cb/pr.
    Spec 4 same but I would of like to see A.Q Shipley play alittle LS to see if he could do it at the NFL level.
    Also I would of like to see (rb) Redman playing with the 1st-2nd team vs Justin Vincent.
    Question,
    Has Mewelde Moore shown you enough to keep his roster spot?
    Meaning, Issac Redman showed he can catch + blocks + A HARD runner for 3rd downs and Stefan Logan should be the starting PR and can play that “scat-back” RB for 3rd downs as well.

    Just want to say nice site I enjoy it. I like that you post the press conferences and interviews as they seem to be hard to find.

    3 Quarterbacks: I agree, and Reilly is PS#1.
    3 Running backs: Redman is PS#2.
    1 Fullback: Agree, and Tank is PS#3
    5 Wide Receivers: Grisham/Nance is PS#4
    3 Tight Ends: Agree
    9 Offensive Linemen: Assuming Stapleton is healthy, he makes it over Legursky, since when he got hurt he was better and they fill the same roles. He and Shipley make PS#5 and 6.

    Offense 24

    7 Defensive Linemen: Add Kirschke and Harris beats out Eason. No way Harris clears waivers.
    8 Linebackers: Agree. Davis is PS#7
    7 Cornerbacks: Add Ratliff and Burnett, subtract Madison. Burnett has too much promise to clear waivers; Ratliff to versatile.
    3 Safeties: Carter is backup, with Ratliff and/or Townsend in a pinch. Mundy is PS#8
    25 Defense
    4 Special Teamers: Agree, although as much as Tomlin preaches position flexibility, imo Logan will also practice as scatback/wr.
    Considered Piotr or R. Lewis taking somebody’s spot on PS, especially Piotr. Always good to have an extra kicker around.
