Steelers News - Both Good and Bad

I'll start with the bad news. Alan Faneca is gone - moving to the Jets. In theory, this should be a good deal for the J-E-T-S, as Faneca is a perennial pro-bowler.

On the other hand, the Jets once signed another big name Steelers free agent - Neil O'Donnell. How'd that work out?

Now onto the good news. He won't have Faneca, and hell, he might not have even have an offensive line, but Big Ben will be in black and gold for a long time, to the tune of eight years and $102 million.

Incidentally, I took the picture - from my seat at Heinz Field in 2004, during Ben's rookie year. Seems like a lifetime ago.
