Hines Ward saw 20 non-penalty play snaps this week and that is up from last week versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Rookie tight end Weslye Saunders also saw a good amount of snaps with 23 non-penalty plays logged. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, center Maurkice Pouncey and left tackle Max Starks were able to exit the game a bit early because of the blow-out.

  • Wow! I didn’t realize they used three TE’s so many times. If this is a sign of things to come, the Steelers should try to find an upgrade at H-back in the draft this year.

    Guys who could not be back next year:

    Will Allen – passed already
    Charlie Batch – QB coach?
    Arnaz Battle – shown we don’t need him
    Jerricho Cotchery – would love him back
    Dennis Dixon – Don’t see him being here
    Trai Essex – Bye
    James Farrior – It is time
    Casey Hampton – If we can afford
    Chris Hoke – thank you for 11 years
    Chris Kemoeatu – Duh, what?
    Bryant McFadden – passed already
    Jamon Meredith – was only here for depth
    Mewelde Moore – Clay and Batch could both make it
    Jonathan Scott – if only for depth, it’d be okay
    Max Starks – Would love to have him for the same #
    Hines Ward – Does he have anything left?
    Byron Leftwich – should be 2nd QB
    Willie Colon – Move to G IMO
    Aaron Smith – DL assistant coach
    Daniel Sepulveda – rather have Kapinos, injury prone
    Rashard Mendenhall – Cap casualty?

    Also of note: The projections of us being over the cap…10 million of that is Colon and Kemoeautu.

    Can’t see us losing that many guys off of the 53 (plus IR’s). Or do you mean guys who ‘might’ not be back next year? I think that Hake, A.Smith, and Sepulveda are likely gone due to injury. Not so sure both or either of Batch/Dixon will be gone…who is going to beat them out and where would Dixon go? Essex and Kemo are probably only gone if we draft a guard near the top. I suspect Willie C. comes back to tackle and Gilbert goes to guard if we re-sign Max. If not, then Gilbert goes to LT. Mendenhall likely to be back…we don’t have anyone with his skill-set. No matter…we still need to get thru this year before we worry about next year!

    This was supposed to be under the Hoke post. Don’t know how it got here. Anyway….yeah, I mean might or…could. I mean I have 3 QBs listed on this list, I doubt Ben is the only QB we keep. I don’t think everyone above is gone, but I think any on that list COULD be gone. I could see a good chunk of them going.
