    Ike also whiffed on at least 3 tackles.

    The secondaries problem has always been going down the middle. I get that there are going to be holes somewhere in the secondary on every play, but a QB should not be able to find a wide open receiver right in the middle of the field on every single down.

    Result of Poor Safety Coverage as well as defensive scheming(Zone)

    I'd be very surprised if Charlie Batch got cut. Though unexciting as a QB, seems he's always been a security blanket for Tomlin. Is Mike ready to let go? Next game will be crucial test for Jerrod Johnson to see if he can secure #3 spot behind Leftwich..

    The running back spot was a big question mark a couple weeks ago with the injuries but now has become a strong spot, at least I think so. Batch, Rainey, and Ford all battling it out for maybe 2 roster spots at best? Should be fun these next two weeks.


    Cortez Allen continues to impress in his coverages, he had another decent game last night. I think it's between him and Keenan Lewis right now with cortez maybe still with a slight lead.

    As far as I'm concerned Rainey has already won a roster spot.

    This is called a pleasant problem.

    I'd tend to agree with you on this one if for no other reason than he's an interesting back with a skill set that the Steelers really have not had since Willie Parker. This kid is even faster than Parker was before his knee injury and he's good out of the backfield.

    No question. I was a huge Willie Parker fan but Rainey can do a lot more than he ever could. I'm not saying as a feature back... But anytime Willie Parker tried to make a move and break a defenders ankles, he'd end up breaking his own lol.

    You HAVE seen Ike play before, right? Usually it wouldn't matter if it was laid right in his hands lol Anytime Ike get an INT I'm happy about it, it's not his best skill.
