The reason our defense has played so much better over the last few weeks is that we actually game plan according to who we're playing, add Troy into that mix and we have instant turnovers.

    Alright Mike, nice to have you on this forum.

    How are you going to implement him in the near future? Will he come in nickel packages before getting carted off with an injury?

    Yes, but he played safety for those teams. I remember the steelers wanted to move him to safety cause he could play CB anymore. Rod didn't want to do that so he left, and found out that to keep playing he had to switch positions...

    Do we really want him to come back. The Steelers defense has looked good without him.

    I agree and disagree,,,,,

    First I disagree that Troy was over rated. But I think he is done now. Steelers need to start looking at the future, save some $$$ and I love you Troy, but............what have you done for me lately

    Also our problems arent at safety

    Understood, but Troy plays safety as well and is still very capable of playing the position at a high level. IMO, he is at a point (just like Woodson was) that he has to become more cerebral instead of just using his physical gifts. Wrap and tackle instead of being a human spear every play.

    A good point. Troy is not currently worth the money ($9 million) he is making but he is still the best safety on the team.

    I don't think Troy will make that much of a difference given the way the defense has played as of late(which is very good and kept us in games) but this comment has to be one of the most ridiculous i've ever read. You can't tell me you wasn't loving it when he was picking off passes(some that were the most spectacular i've ever seen by a db), tackling for losses and totally taking the offense out of it's gameplan single handedly. If anything he's the Gayle Sayers of defense and for a time was the best in the biz bar-none.
