    Alan Faneca?

    Faneca wants out of Pittsburgh badly. If he causes enough of a disruption, which he could, he's been criticizing the coaching change since day 1, I think we could get him relatively cheap.

    We're on very good terms with their new head coach, so I really would like to see us make a move, and we'd have not only the best left side, but also the best half of the right side.

    McKinnie, Hutchinson, Birk, Faneca, Whoever gets the RT job.

    That's a nasty offensive line right there.


    However, he might be expensive especially with the huge contracts mediocre linemen got this offseason, he's 31, I guess after this whole hubbub about him wanting a trade he might be looked at as an asshole(and Childress only wants one asshole in his organization.... him). So I really don't see this happening.

    STEELERS OFFERED FANECA $19 MILLION OVER FIRST THREE YEARS

    A source tells us that the Pittsburgh Steelers extended an opening offer to guard Alan Faneca for a contract extension that would have paid him $19 million over the first three years of the deal.

    Per the source, Faneca wants $24 million over the first three seasons, and isn't budging.

    As we explained on Friday, Faneca's anger regarding the gap between his demand and the team's offer is misplaced.
    The team has no obligation to pay him more money than the team believes that the 30-year-old offensive lineman deserves.
    And by publicly crying about the situation, Faneca is no different than Pacman Jones or Chris Henry or T.O. or any other selfish asshole who puts his own interests above a system that has made many men with few if any other marketable skills rich beyond their wildest dreams.

    But, hey, at least Faneca showed up for a mandatory minicamp.


    "[H]e's a professional.
    He's here.
    It's not like he didn't show up," said receiver Hines Ward.

    Hines, he showed up because, under the new CBA, he could have lost 25 percent of the prorated bonus amount for 2007, the final year of his current contract.
    The potential price tag would have been $400,000.


    And how can Faneca be described as "a professional" in light of his Friday rant?
    Panthers receiver Steve Smith wanted a new contract for more than a year, and never said a word about it publicly.
    Sure, there were rumors that he was milking a hamstring injury last year in quiet protest to the lack of a new deal.
    But Smith never ran his mouth.

    The irony here is that, in identical situations, the receiver acted like an offensive lineman usually does, and the offensive lineman is acting like a receiver usually behaves.

    So, in our view, there's nothing professional about what Faneca is doing.
    And it could be that Faneca and Ward and anyone of their mindset will have to go before new Steelers coach Mike Tomlin can communicate his message to the guys who still get it.


    Chuch.

    A thread was already started yesterday Mr. A......

    Besides, it's in the wrong forum. This does not belong in the Vikings Offseason Forum.
