Won't happen. Al Davis has a personal vendetta on Porter. Not saying that it's smart but Al will sit him on the bench all season long just to prove a point.

I hardly see the Steelers picking up either Randy Moss or Porter, since they didn't want to handle Plaxico Burress a couple of years ago.

But I admit the idea is intriguing! :-?


It would be a reversal of idealology for the Stillers to go after a high priced malcontent WR. Can't see it happening........wish it would though. Can't stand to see talent sitting a benches.


If Millen read the rumor maybe he'll try to beat the Squealers to the punch.

Wasn't it Porter who parked his car in Al Davis's parking spot?


BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?

Well maybe next yr.

PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.

Yeah but at the same time, you gotta respect his balls.

On a side note, will someone plesae trade Porter AND moss. I have them both sitting on my money league bench.

Ohhh and if I could also say, I would like Randy to go to Jaxsonville and be on the receiving end of lefty's gun!!! And then Porter should go to Philly for Stallworth.

IMO, I don't care where he goes, he is always missing time for one reason or another.

ESPN bottomline is reporting that the Raiders have suspended Porter for 4 game due to conduct detrimental to the team.

Is there any reason to keep him on a roster at this point.

I was thinking about dropping him in my money league and picking up Micheal Turner just for the heck of it.

As long as Worthlessberger is throwing the ball, no receiver in Pitt has that much fantasy value let alone one that is a Mr. Pissy Pants.
