He's gone folks... And playing for another team that is giving him a few more chances than he got here in pretty important games nonetheless. If 10% of him acting like a jag off is true then fine good riddance. We've all been pissed about the negativity coming out of the locker room as it is. No need to cover idiocy from one under the guise of "well he earned it". I believe he should've gotten more time and should've been in a rotation all season long. He wasn't gonna be a world beater anymore and that's just the facts. Could he have made a difference? Maybe forced the opposing O to change their plans? Yeah maybe he probably could have but he wasn't given the chance and therefore he didn't. The fan in me wants to think he could've set the edge... Stopped some of the bleeding from run game gashing... Maybe even gotten after the QB here and there offsetting a few drives here and there. It didn't happen. I was pissed in the beginning especially when everybody started bumping gums about James being a ***** in the locker room. Anymore, I don't care. I look at this stuff as it is... People get paid to play the game and loyalty has shriveled up from both player and owner. This ain't my daddy's steelers... This ain't my daddy's league... Times have changed, and not for the better in my opinion. If James wasn't getting reps here, don't blame him looking elsewhere. As a fan it sucks, but after all of these years the changes in morale, society, loyalty, hometown legend BS etc... I'm over it. People diss Lambert for not coming around. People been dissing the best QB in this franchises history for having his own opinion on his days here and opinions from a paid mouth piece on current states of the franchise. It's all ridiculous. Team is thrown under the bus for letting folks go... Hanging onto folks to long... Not paying folks what theyare worth... Disciplining to strict to not discipline at all. It's really funny that we hold in high regard what the product does not. James could've made a difference SITUATIONALLY as are hanger on ers in similar situations. So could've Troy and Hines blah blah blah... But all they are to us are guys that earned another chance to do the great things they once did and aren't worth holding onto in hopes they pull a rabbit out of the hat once more. James helped end the KC threat but he was more distraction than factual. I would've like to see that happen again in a bigger game but it didn't. He's gone. Root for him (which I will not be doing for that team) or don't... But quit kidding ourselves or yourselves that he owed anybody anything or was owed anything. He gave his best and we got pretty excellent memories as fans for it. I doubt he cares what Pitt fans think of him pretty much like Lambert and none of that matters to me. The coaches could've plugged him and maybe situationally made a difference on a drive here and there. He could've not been a prick to. Lot of could've should've would've and all of it arguably makes situational sense, only it don't matter now. Time to fix the team needs and not harbor ill will crying about who coulda done what.
