    Week 2 and Troy is out, wonderful. He still has some in the tank, but he is WAY too injury prone at this point.

    I dont look for Troy to be playing in another 3 seasons. Thats just me, I would be fine with it, he's done so much for this franchise.

    He's in, he's out, the media has been a circus since the season started because the Steelers are keeping everything under wraps. Based on Friday, he doesn't play, but the fact that he's still questionable and he himself hasn't said for sure, maybe you still hold out some hope that he'll play.

    If we can't beat the Jets without him then we have more problems than just Troy.

    I think you're right. I don't see him here for too much longer. With the recent injuries and concussion history, I could see him hanging them up while he's still in his prime.

    That's one of the main reasons I think safety needs to be a priority in the draft next year (OLB for injury related reasons as well.)

    Hopefully this won't keep him out for long (but with regards to Harrison, Bouchette was speculating that his knee scope was more extensive than a little clean up, considering how much time Harrison has already missed.)

    As much as I hate to say it, this doesn't upset me. Troy is rapidly going from the best defensive player ever to play to a non-issue. He simply can't be effective in the free lance role any more and his cover skills don't fit him playing in the system.

    I'm no expert, but maybe LeBeau system is no longer working.

    If Ed Reed can still play at 37, why not Troy at 31?

    ya have to let troy be troy.....but when the rest of the secondary sux, you have to pull troy from his usual role and try to plug holes elsewhere.....i will take him over ed "playing centerfield and hoping for a bad throw, cause i dont like to tackle' reed.

    LeBeau's scheme assumes at some point the opposing QB will make a mistake. If the DBs are playing 10 yards off the receiever, that QB will just dink and dunk his way through the Steelers.
