So Long Mikey Potts, We Barely Knew You...


It is with a heavy heart that I deliver this sad news to all you ravenous Steelers faithful - OFTOT fav, QB Mikey Potts has just been cut. We knew this day would come. We just thought we would have gotten more time with him. Mikey P, good luck in Arizona. No doubt you'll be on a plane, headed there shortly. That's probably Whisenhunt on the horn now. Better let you go...

In other cuts/roster moves...

Jeremy Bloom - OUT!
Martavarius Prince - OUT!
Robopunter - OUT! (On IR, that is)

...And there will be one more lost before tomorrow's out (when the Steelers need to be down to 75).

But never you fear, Eddie Drummond's still here...

Well, i think Jeremy Bloom could have developed if he'd had any time invested, and we're in fair shape at WR. He's got blinding speed and toughness, coulda been another Wes Welker type IMHO. Oh well..we *coulda* Owen Schmitt at RB/TE/ST too, but we all know how THAT went(Tony Hills instead?)

Mike Potts will be greatly missed. His enthusiasm, rocket arm, and poise in the pocket will never be matched.

Absolutely shoulda drafted Owen Schmitt.

steelbiathan ~ Wait, you mean, you like Owen Schmitt? No way!

domski ~ His poise...I think that's what I'll miss the most...

jppb ~ Absolutely shoulda drafted a D-lineman too.
