Looks like Brady isn't the only one Clark's slamming.

LOL how is calling Troy the 3rd best safety in the NFL slamming him? People are just looking for things to complain about now this is ridiculous

Clark isn't a pimple on Troy's ***. He doesn't need to be ranking him anywhere. IMO his answer should have been Troy's one of the best to ever play that position and left it at that. Like Real Deal said, Thomas is gonna take Clark's job and than see what he has to say.

He's an analyst this summer, it was his JOB to rank the top 5 safeties in order without being biased and he did just that. He clearly is looking for a job there after his retirement, and he provided his analysis as he was asked to do. Like I said you're just looking for something to complain about. What does Thomas taking his job have anything to do with ranking Troy?

"On the Monday episode of NFL Live on ESPN, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark was asked to rank his top five safeties in the league and below are his rankings"

Darren Woodson was asked to do the same and they compared. But hey, you're right, instead of going along with the segment, Clark should have just said "no, im not doing this, Troy is one of the best to ever play the position and thats all I have to say"

See how foolish that makes you look?

Right now all clark needs to worry about is playing football. He can worry about life after football when he retires. Can't see how ranking players on your team can be productive in the locker room. As for your remark about me looking for something to complain about. Your for of s**t.

Its the offseason, guys go on vacation, blow money, and do whatever they want in their free time. Clark chooses to gain experience becoming an analyst, something he has interest in and something he is good at. Why is that such a bad thing? You cant see how its productive? Lets look at it the other way, how does it hurt? There are 60 starting safeties in the league and he labeled an often injured, past his prime teammate at number 3, OUT OF 60! How on earth is that going to cause problems in the locker room?

LOL yeah..I'm the one who is full of sh*t meanwhile youre reaching to complain about this stuff. Whats next, are you gonna complain about the color of Clarke's shoes? Maybe his haircut is pissing you off and you'll make a thread about that too!

I have no problem with Clark's assessment. When healthy, Troy is still one of the best in the league. And when he is not healthy, his relevance drops significantly.

Really excited to see what Thomas can do. Hope he gets a taste this season.

That was a holistic view. Who is the best at jumping the play at the line of scrimmage? Who is the best at making acrobatic catches when he puts himself in a situation to do so? I can tell you who is number one in those two categories. That is a no brainer.

lol You guys are crazy ... Troy should be no where close to even top 10 at this point, when he was injured and Will Allen was playing there was absolutely no drop off in our defense from what I saw ... as of right now Clark is a better Safety then Troy

Stop Living off the past
