  1. arosen36, you’re real funny.. They lost Asante Samuel to get the 3… They lost Randal Gay for the 5th, and they lost Stallworth for the 6th.. stop whining about it..

  2. A fifth? For Faneca????? WTF???? If I’m not mistaken he had the 2nd highest contract, played in every game, and made the Pro-bowl. A 4th would have been a freaking joke.

  3. a fourth round pick for Michael Turner? (chargers to atlanta); what kind of logic is that?

  4. Wow, Steelers got screwed here. Faneca got the 2nd biggest contract in all of free agency and made the pro bowl and the Steelers only got a 5th rounder for it?!?!?

  5. How in the hell did the Redskins pick up anything? They’ve spent a ot more than they lost over the past 10 seasons in free agency.

  6. The Patriots lost Asante and two backups to get a 3rd, 5th and 6th while the Steelers lost two starters in Alan Faneca and Clark Haggans and they only get one 5th? Combine that with the new rule proposals (i.e. “hines ward rule”) and you gotta figure Goodell doesn’t want the Steelers to upset his desired Manning vs Brady AFC Championship game.

  7. This whole concept is ridiculous. You lose a FA, tough sh*t.. Why devalue the draft picks of the other teams, which is what you do. Round 4 draft picks by 4 slots.

  8. What the hell? The Steelers only got a 5th for Alan Faneca?!
    The guy was freaking all-pro again last year! If that doesn’t get a third, what does?

  9. Unfortunately the system is seriously flawed because it’s heavily biased towards contract size by average payout per year. It doesn’t take into consideration bogus backend money that’s never seen, it doesn’t weight it by “real money” in contracts, and it doesn’t even take into consideration that different positions are paid more or less than other positions. If anything salary comparisons should be made relative to franchise tag values by position.

    Did any of these 5 players make a bigger impact to their team than Michael Turner did for the Falcons? 2nd in the NFL with 1699 yards rushing, 17 TDs. They were all paid more, and thus according to NFL formulas better, more effective players.
    New England (Asante Samuel, $9.3567 million per season, 15 GP/15 GS, Pro Bowl)
    Cincinnati (Justin Smith, $7 million, 16/16)
    Pittsburgh (Alan Faneca, $7.8 million, 16/16, Pro Bowl)
    Chicago (Bernard Berrian, $6.9 million, 16/13)
    N.Y. Giants (Gibril Wilson, $6.5008 million, 16/15)
    San Diego (Michael Turner, $5.75 million, 16/16, Pro Bowl)

  10. “You know a team is good when people take shots at them anytime their name comes up.”
    I was going to take a shot at Chicago getting three, but I doubt anyone is going to accuse them of being “good”.

  11. Chargers don’t get a 3rd for Turner because his contract wasnt nearly high enough. Contract probably earned them a 5th, his Pro Bowl pushed it to a 4th.
    The Faneca thing blows my mind!

  12. arosen said “how much did the patriots cheat to get 3”
    But didn’t question Tennessee or Cincy who got four?

  13. Before I looked at this post, I knew there would be posts of “how did the Patriots cheat to get three” etc etc.
    Well I have news, you sound retarded if you say that.
    The compensatory system is a clear calculation that includes factors such as salaries of players lost, playing time minus players the team signed etc.
    The only player that counted against the Patriots was Sam Aiken, who played on special teams but had only 8 catches on offense.
    The Patriots lost Asante Samuel, Donte Stallworth, and Randall Gay. Samuel earned approximately $10 million a year, Stallworth $7 million, and Gay $3-$4 million. They actually could have gotten a fourth for Stallworth had he not been injured.
    Yep, they certainly cheated. No doubt about it. Hoody’s at it again. That bastard.

  14. every draft prospects worst nightmare………..cincinnati gets four more lives to ruin!

    how much did the patriots cheat to get 3
    —-
    We video taped the secret formula that the league uses to award comp. picks – that is why we got a 3 for Samuel and the Steelers got a 5 for Faneca. We knew what to do to ensure we’d get the top pick.
    You know what else we video taped? All your defensive signals!! Ahahahahahaha Go Pats!!!

  16. Azcardinal32: While productivity is likely a factor in determining compensatory picks, it is not the key. Salary is the key.
    I’m not sure of the specifics of Turner’s contract with the Falcons, but I’m pretty sure it’s not Asante Samuel money.

  17. “Before I looked at this post, I knew there would be posts of “how did the Patriots cheat to get three” etc etc.

    Almost as retarded as all of the insecure little patriot fans that whine like a bunch of little bitches every time someone mentions that their team got caught cheating…..

  18. “Who did the Bears lose to get a 3? Sexy Rexy?”
    Bernard Berrian
    “How does San Diego not get a third for Michael Turner?”
    Turner signed for about $5.5 mil a year, compared to Samuel (over $9 mil a year), Berrian ($7 mil a year), Justin Smith ($7.5 mil), Gibril Wilson ($6.5 mil)
    As far as Faneca, he signed for $8 mil a year…so that is somewhat confusing.

  19. faneca’s worth way more than a 5. wow.
    eagles are gonna get a bunch next year. dawkins, thomas, runyan, even LJ smith or sean considine maybe for really late picks.

  20. Look position is obviously a bigger factor than previously thought.There is no other way (Besides NFL conspiracy) to explain Faneca.

  21. Very good point by PatriotsBlog.net. The Pats didn’t have to cheat to get those picks. And with that explanation, maybe the Steelers whiners on here would clue in to this and realize it is not just based on FA losses, but FA signings.
    For example, Chicago lost three players to UFA and didn’t sign any UFAs from other teams. Their only signings were street FAs.

  22. I’m beginning to think Faneca wasn’t eligible for compensatory reciprocation (since its noted that not all players are)…maybe age? The 5th round pick seems to line up with the loss of Clark Haggans (who signed an undisclosed contract with AZ. The Steelers were only eligible for one pick (lost faneca, haggans, signed mewelde moore)

    It’s hard to deny that the NFL League office loves the Pats*–from destroying the evidence to letting them play back to back West Coast games last year (twice, no less) so they wouldn’t have to travel back East each time to the love they always seem to get from officials late in games. Today was no exception–I mean look no further than these comp picks (compared to what the Steelers got for losing one of the best O-linemen in the game and a starting LB) as well as their opening night game against the Bills, who will be sans their only Pro Bowl player (Marshawn Lynch) for that game. As soon as it looked like Marshawn was going to get at least a one gamer, I absolutely KNEW that the Bills would open up against the Pats*…..

  24. Muramba,
    Having back to back west coast games is considered by all (except you) to be more a disadvantage, as most teams choose to fly back home in between games. The Patriots simply chose to stay on the west coast for their trip. Also, I think all the love that the Bills get from officials late in the game is pretty unfair in itself. (I can make up accusations with no evidence, too)

  25. Hey Muramba were you crying because of the big bad Patriots as you typed that?
    WAAAAAHH
