    John Clay walks off practice field

    He was talked out of quitting by staff he returned for drills. Good bye Mr Clay

    Dwyer a big winner

    Unless the Steelers make a move to sign a running back who gets cut loose in the next couple of weeks, Jonathan Dwyer has likely made this team.

    The season-ending knee injury to Baron Batch last week made that a strong possibility, but rookie John Clay walking out of practice Monday all but assured it.

    Clay was eventually talked into coming back onto the practice field, but you can bet the coaching staff isn't happy with him.

    Of course, Clay probably sees the writing on the wall. He hasn't been too impressive in camp and was equally blah in the team's first preseson game at Washington.

    So that leaves Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Mewelde Moore and … Dwyer.

    The Steelers will be watching the waiver wire closely if someone interesting gets cut loose. And no, that somebody will not be Tiki Barber.

    Wow, you actually are going to take the chance of a lifetime and throw it away like that? When Batch went down that should have been even more motivation for Clay to take this opportunity and run with it. There's no reason he couldn't have unseated Dwyer, if actually tried.

    I'm sure the coaches are not happy right now with this situation, almost having their hand forced into keeping Dwyer.

    They will pick someone up before they keep Dwyer, and I guess they talked Clay into staying just so the defense would have someone to tackle.

    Gives a new meaning to the word " tackling dummy".

    He's screwing himself out of chances to latch on to another team now too. Once the rest of the league finds out his got a quitter attitude they aren't going to want him. You just can't squander an opportunity like this. Honestly it kind of makes me mad, any one of us would give our right arm at a chance to play for an NFL franchise and live a dream (if that is your dream), and make the kind of money that even backups make in the league.
