Former coach Bill Cowher knows a thing or two about the Pittsburgh Steelers and how the organization reacts to a down season -- they were 8-8 in 2012, their worst run since posting the same record under Cowher in 2006 -- and he thinks that while they won't panic, they likely will shed some players from their roster this offseason, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette. "Cowher suggested players such as outside linebacker James Harrison, nose tackle Casey Hampton, inside linebacker Larry Foote and even safety Troy Polamalu could fall under that umbrella," Bouchette wrote, "and that wide receiver Mike Wallace and running back Rashard Mendenhall would leave as free agents." Those defensive players all are aging, Mendenhall butted heads with coaches this season and Wallace will cost a lot of money to keep in the fold going forward. That means there is a very real chance that some or many of these guys will be playing elsewhere in '13. Interest level in Troy?
