The Pittsburgh Steelers season was already on shaky ground with the suspension of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for at least four games.
However, it has gotten worst for the Steelers and it doesn’t look good for their season.
According to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, via Pro Football Talk, Steelers right tackle Willie Colon has been lost for the season as MRI results indeed show that he tore his achillies tendon while working out at team facillities
On top of that fifth round draft pick Chris Scott broke his foot at his alma matter the University of Tennessee.
To replace Colon the Steelers signed offensive tackle Jonathan Scott who played with the Bills last year.
In the end, if the Steelers coaching staff is any good they will find a way to win.
Houston Texans offensive tackle Eric Winston filled in for SI.com’s Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback.
Of the points he made one of them stood head and shoulders above the rest.
Winston stated that the NFLPA and the players fo believe in a rookie wage scale just like th owners.
Where the problem Is that NFLPA wants the money to go back to current players or to the retiree’s who played before 1993.
I have to admit that I hate the tatics the NFLPA have been using, but if this is true then they are right on the situation as the money to fund increased pensions should come from somewhere on the players side and this is the answer.
That would mean 60 percent goes to the NFLPA, but two percent, or whatever it is, would go to retirees and the the remaining would go to players.
Now, don’t get me wrong the players still need to conceed a lot still in regards to the salary cap as they are making way too much than the smaller market can handle.
The proof is with the Green Bay Packers as under the total football revenue to figure the salary cap the Packers profits have gone from $34 million to under $20 million.
In the end, if the players don’t make concessions even the Packers will have to move.
