Faneca is now a member of the Jets according to ESPN.

Faneca has attitude problems.  He caused tremors in the locker room when his buddy Russ Grimm did not get hired.  Then he threw a fit over his contract.  The one thing that I will say is that he said it was all about the money, and he proved that. 

The Steelers may be weaker, but they are better in the long run by moving on.  The Steelers do not have time to stroke Faneca;s ego when he is on the downside of his career.

PSV, your Steelers are the most resilient team in the league. In the beginning of true FA, they lost Kevin Greene, Greg Lloyd, etc...then later Rod Woodson, and about a million other guys. They always restock.  I just saw Faneca has been to 7 PB's-which means he's most likely headed to the hall.  But the cap means a lot these days so maybe it's a good thing.
Look at losing Tiki last year.:D


EDIT-Time to pull my Krazykid impersonation:

Thank you Eagles-http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3271255

You signed a flyweight CB who doesn't like to hit and can't cover the G-Men receivers.  TO will smoke him too.  The only guys who won't are pussies like Patrick Crayton, Santana Moss and his brother Sinorice.

The one position where the Bills do not really need anyone is linebacker.

So of course, that's the first position they go after. Idiots.

Yeah and that POS Kawika also. Good luck with that bum. He stunk up the joint here for a bunch of years.

The Bills LB corps consists of Poszluszny, Crowell, and Ellison. One guy was a promising rookie who got hurt, Crowell is very good, and Ellison is decent enough. No idea where Mitchell even fits into that. He may be hard pressed just to start. The Bills need defensive tackles.

See. signing a lineman with maybe 2 good years left to a 4 year contract that guarantees $23 million is why the Jets are the Jets and the Steelers are the Steelers.

It sucks that it had to end that way for him here, but he had only himself to blame. If the Rooneys are going to tell Franco Harris to the get fuck out after helping win 4 Super Bowls (anyone remember his one year with Seattle?), they sure as hell aren't going to break the bank for Faneca.

Yep, Harris in Seattle was just wrong.  So was:
Johnny U in SD
Joe Willie in LA

OJ Simpson in SF

And the list goes on....


Back to losing franchises, the SF 49ers continue to throw big money at other teams just past their peak players (age 25-26 considered the peak): http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3271999

They really need to lose their hammerhead of a QB, who I still maintain is the worst starter in the entire league.

I will agree with that. I hope Shaun Hill wins the starting QB job  out here.

On Justin Smith the fans are happy he signed. One thing they are missing was a pass rush and some one to fill the Bryant Young retirement. Smith was the cheapest available.

Deshaun Foster, Alan Rossum ,Dontarriuos Thomas,will be non factors but they are back up players anyways. Issac Bruce needs 58 catches to hit the 1000 plateau. Its gonna take 2 years for him to reach that If Alex Smith starts.

Rex Grossman might give Smith a run for his money.

At least the Sex Cannon can say he's been to a Super Bowl. I don't think Smith will get there unless he buys a ticket.

He can easily have 5 good years left. As far as having an 'attitude' problem as far as I remember he had two instances which both happened within the last 2 years or so. The Russ thing which yeah he was sticking up for his buddy, maybe he should have, maybe not and he contract which I think he had the right to do whether they gave it to him or not. Regardless he showed up to play every year and gave it his all for the Steelers. I do not view him as a 'locker room cancer' because of those two instances after the career he's had. Maybe there were other problems he caused in years past, I don't know, but I never heard of any.

Anyway I think the Jets made a great move, but to say he maybe has two good seasons is the same as saying he has 5. We won't know until it happens, but I'm hoping he has the latter.

Alan Faneca was a great OG in the NFL, but his play has fallen off over the past two years.  He was the best position at his position in his younger years.  I take nothing away from the guy.  But, what he wants, what he deserves and what he gets are all seperate issues.  Hey, if he could have doubled his money, great!  But, do i think the Steelers should have gotten into a bidding war for the guy or met his demands to be paid the most money at his position?  No way.  We got too many other important and younger guys to sign.

I am just tired of hearing how this guy was such a team player and he deserved his asking price.  Faneca was committed to the $$$, and the Steelers are committed to a finiancially sound football team.  Solong, Alan.

How are the fans in Pittsburgh viewing his departure?
