    Who knows what they thought of what Philbin did in Green Bay, in their mind it could be the head coach. You quite overestimate what players think of coaches they never played for. Im sure some do have much respect for certain coaches, People say the same when players and coaches select probowlers and they show time and time again that they are just as clueless and go with names.

    Also loss of Nelson and jennings for a major amount of games contributed more to their struggles than anything

    I think you quite underestimate what players think of coaches they have never played for, and how reputation travels through word of mouth. In Philbins case everyone knows how great the offense he helped create in Greenbay was, and he has the ring to prove it. That reputation alone is enough to attract players.

    Pro bowl guys are taken on name far more often then on field work because the majority of fans recognize the big names.

    These "package deals" rarely, if ever, actually come to fruition. Remember last year when we were gonna get Peyton Manning AND Reggie Wayne? Cause, you know, they were "total BFFs forever!" ...

    This is something I will only believe when i see it. Besides, I'm not sure even I want ALL those players on our team anyway. Does anyone really want to be "Steelers South" any more than they want to be "Dallas East"? We need to focus on the key players out there that can make this free agency a huge success: Wallace, Winston, Cook... If we land those 3 players I will be content until draft day. Any other good signings are just icing on the cake.

    Never mind them being good friends.. We need a starting corner and Lewis could very well be that guy. Would love that sign. Not so much the other 2 because of price tags.

    True people thought that about Peyton and Reggie, but I believe at a point Reggie came out and said he was not going to follow Manning and do what was best for him. To be honest I would not mind getting Lewis, but I am not sold on bringing in Mendenhall on a huge contract. I would rather get younger at the position not older.

    I think if we make a move at rb we need a big grinder. With reggie and lamar we got all the speed and finesse we need. Mendenhall just don't strike me as a power back. We need what daniel thomas was supposed to be.

    Ummm, he was front and center on HBO last summer... I think the NFL players know plenty about Philbin. Whether they want to play for him is a variable.
