Twitter reaction to Jerricho Cotchery signing with the Carolina Panthers

Scanning over Twitter after it was announced the Steelers lost their second receiver this offseason, the reactions were consistent with blame, animosity and uncertainty behind the team's next move.

Jerricho Cotchery reportedly signed a 5-year deal worth $3.5 million in 2014 with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, becoming the second Steelers receiver this offseason to head for richer pastures. The reaction on Twitter was probably in line with what we might have reasonably expected.

Here's a way to blame Mike Tomlin, which some will certainly do.

Wow, a Laveranues Coles reference...that takes talent.

This sounds oddly like the stories Graves and others (probably us) wrote about Ben Roethlisberger and the new faces in the quarterbacks room. Maybe some change will be good for Brown. For the first time, he's the oldest receiver there. For now, at least.

Paging Mr. Moore...paging Mr. Lance Moore...Steelers Gab isn't the only one asking this question, and all eyes have shifted over to the ex-Saints receiver.

It's getting harder and harder to ignore the sentiment posed by former Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch earlier this offseason when he wondered indirectly if Todd Haley may have something to do with the amount of offensive turnover the team has had.

Whatever the reason...it's onward and upward. Who's next?
