The Pittsburgh Steelers are not going to get back into the play-of picture in the NFL, if they’re not willing to spend money on quality free-agents. After meeting with Maurice Jones-Drew, for days, they couldn’t get a deal done with the running back.
Jone-Drew could have been an asset to the Steelers who could surely use a running back to help the team establish their running game. Pittsburgh is taking the cheap approach to the free agents available.
The Steelers won’t spend the money necessary to bring winning back to the Steelers. Jones-Drew is expected to come to terms with the Raiders today. This is a shame.
The Steelers can’t see the value in a guy like Jones-Drew. Pittsburgh is living in the past. The team refuses to pay top dollar to key players that can help the Steelers get back to winning and it is going to come back to haunt them.
It is time the Rooney’s woke up and smelled the coffee so to speak. The Rooney family has had a long history of not wanting to pay what players are worth, and over the past few season’s this attitude has hurt the team.
The Rooney family needs to get in touch with the times. If they can’t see what other teams are willing to spend, to bring in quality players, it is going to set the Steelers back a few more years.
The people in Pittsburgh deserve better, and until the Steelers spend some money, they are not going to get better.
