    he led the team with 100 tackles, had interception, and was able to call plays and led them to the playoffs in Denver, WHICH they could have won if he was able to play, but instead they lost and he wasn't playing. Asset to team much?!

    They can definitely grab a top notch safety in next years draft, BUT if they want a solid back-up to groom they should look into Michigan State FS Trenton Robinson and have him learn behind Troy and Ryan. Besides Troy and Ryan may be getting older but that didn't stop them from contributing to the #1 defense in the league

    Are you referring to Ryan Clark?

    They didn't lose the game because Clark was out. They lost because LeBeau coached the worst game of his career.

    I'd like for them to take a safety in the 4th round. One with real potential that can contribute later in the season.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    It's kind of obvious from our playoff loss to Denver that we don't have that "someone" from within. And considering we are opening up in Denver, where Ryan Clark won't be able to play yet again, we will get torched if we don't have our safety questions resolved. Add to that the fact that Troy is always hurt too. We need to get some additional players in the secondary.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say he's not playing like the old Troy. He was a half step off last year, true. But once you put some pressure on the QB, he makes up that time and things are different. The defense major problem is lack of pressure.

    Troy and Ryan are a good combo because they play very well together. I'd say draft a safety next year
