This is amazing since he has only been a starter for the past 3-4 years. He's in some good company with Woodson and Lake.


The game wasn't stopped. The scoreboard wasn't aglow with a celebratory announcement of the event. The honoree wasn't aware of the circumstance. Rather, Deshea Townsend imperceptibly, almost invisibly, crept Sunday into a select spot in Steelers' lore:
All-time sack leader among cornerbacks.
Hey, when the previous record-holder was Rod Woodson, a member of the NFL's 75th anniversary all-time team, that's saying something.

Wow! I had no idea Townsend was even close to the sack mark for corners :dunno: That is quite an accomplishment when you sit back and think of all the great DB's the Steelers have int he 70's, 80's, 90's and now :clap: way to go Townsend!

Like yous aid SF he hasn't been doing it long so he'll just keep padding that number!
