Hutch is great, don't get me wrong. But its always better to go youth movement. Every GM in the league will tell you that.
Okay, Homer! I'm sure that really happened. Like Hines Ward went back in time to stop the JFK assassination. He blocked all three bullets with his smile. JFK's head exploded out of sure amazement. That really happened too.

So it's better to go with an unproven player over a proven commodity? See you keep saying a 30 year old guard is old. 2007 Pro Bowl. Alan Faneca(30), Will Shields(35), Brian Waters(30), Steve Hutchinson(29), Larry Allen(35), Ruben Brown(35).

Again, Faneca has five good years left.

If the Steelers couldve gotten a 1st for Faneca, he wouldve been out the door along time ago.
Faneca was a first round pick. It just took him three years to become the pro bowl player he is today. And if we had the money I would be all for signing him to a long-term deal. But we are cash strapped. But no way you can let him leave for anything less than a top 45 pick. We'll get a 90 something pick if we let him leave next year and have one more year of his service.

Using the pro bowl argument for OL isn't very good because the same guys go every year. Shields and Allen were average at best, Brown was good and Hutch had a down year for his talent. I'd give up a first for Shawn Andrews, Chris Snee, Steinbach, Dielman, maybe a few other guys, but not Faneca.

Just say no. Just say no. Crack is very bad. Oh, how many Pro Bowls do Snee, Andrews, Steinbach, Dielman have? Oh, that's right Pro Bowls don't count for anything. They give those to the crappy players. Mmmmm Hmmmm. Good intelligent argument!

Homers in general.

This is enough, there is no way Faneca gets a first, unless someone is forced to trade at gunpoint. He is simply not worth it.

Also, the older you get, the easier it will be to get injured. To say over and over that he has at least 5 great years left is crazy. I say you could realistically hope for 3, and anything after that is bonus (assuming he doesn't retire).

You know, it would not surprise me at all if you looked like the guy in your sig.

And by the way, Im sure LT probably could do that. Didn't you hear? He was a manimal.

He also had the energy to end world hunger, but he used that energy pursuing other recreational activities such as smoking crack.

Replace Steinbach, with Logan Mankins, and I would be in complete agreement with you.

The Redskins are still kinda looking for a guard, but I think his price tag would be too much. We're more concerned on the defensive side of the ball and locking up Cooley for next year.

IMO 30 is not that old for an offensive lineman. Their skills don't really deteriorate like some of the other skill positions so they can play a lot longer barring injury. 1st rounder, no way. 2nd rounder, possible. 3rd rounder and a mediocre player sounds like a better fit.

I think he's worth a 2nd, best guard in the league by a mile in my opinion.

Am I that big of a homer? Maybe I should throw 1968 Giants > 1968 Steelers in my sig too.

Anyone that says Faneca is worth less than a second is ********. Plain and simple. If the Steelers just allow him to play out his contract and leave for free agency the likely seven straight pro bowl OG Alan Faneca will blow any deal of any guard ever out of the water. Will make Hutchinson look like he's playing for peanuts. And the Steelers will EASILY get a third round pick for compensation. So why would they take a third for him when they could get one more year of PRO BOWL talent and then get their third round pick? Nope. If they would trade him they will not take less than fair market value. I say the bears first. Or the Cards second and switching third round picks and a 5th. Or the Seahawks second and next years third round picks. That's about where he is worth.

A 4th? Really! Would you of traded Will Shields when he was 30 for a 4th?

what a great example of a fan completely overvaluing his own player

a first AND another first day pick, now THATS the real joke, consider your self lucky to get a first day pick for a 30 year old OG

I never backed off the Bears would be a fair value for their first! Anything less than that we'd need a lot more to get value back.

You know you guys are right. I think the Steelers should trade their 4th round pick and get Steve Hutchinson. If Faneca wants to leave let him it will only cost us a 4th to get a replacement.

A 30 year old guard will not get a first round pick in a draft this filled with OG talent. Chances are he wouldn't get first round value in any other draft. He may get second if you find a "win now" team with crappy OG's, but otherwise, take the third.
