So everybody had their breath taken away by Redskins owner Danny Snyder's hundred million dollar contract to Albert (Twelve games a year) Haynesworth. OOOH!
Well, now the Boy Billionaire (as Myron once called him on the air) has released Jason Taylor after one season. Taylor missed better than half of that season with injuries, and declined to take a pay INCREASE in exchange for attending at least 25 of 39 off-season team related activities...or whatever they call it.
But in order to get Taylor in the first place, the Redskins traded aways a second round draft choice.
So now, this team - with an aging offensive line - has no Jason Taylor, no middle second round pick - and broke the bank and salary cap on one player.
The Steeler way - building from within - developing players - spending wisely and showing some loyalty and some love to the non-superstars - is the way to go.
And lurching from crisis to crisis, and perceived opportunity to preceived opportunity, like so many teams do, is the road to perdition - or maybe the road of Palookaville.
Don't worry if the Steelers aren't big players in the free agent big names market. It often is a fool's market. The Steelers don't subscribe to that mumbo-jumbo. They keep building from within, and the first rule is always: DO NO HARM.
