    Troy's first game back

    Can't believe nobody has talked about this yet.

    How would you rate Troy's first start in what seems like ages. To me he seemed like the same Troy. Trying to make the big play and whiffing a few times in the game. Was he even in the secondary at all? Seems like he isn't balancing rushing the QB and actually playing in the secondary anymore. I would say it's time for LeBeau to restrict his creative freedom a little bit.

    At first it was weird seeing him run around. The entire game I was just waiting for him to limp off the field. But overall I'm glad he's back, and I thought he looked pretty good. Like you said, he pretty much looked like the old Troy, well at least the Troy from the last few years.

    His first game back last week vs the Ravens....Maybe he was being a bit conservative as to not hurt himself again. I did seem him flying around a bit. It'll be interesting to see what he does vs the Chargers on Sunday. I can see Troy having a field day with Rivers. He's thrown quite a few picks and has been sacked a lot.

    Lol I was not impressed but hoping in time he'll get back to form.. He was used more as a decoy this past game.

    Well Troy did survive without getting injured again....Now its time to see if he can start a game and play the majority of the game now......I would also like to see Troy make some impact plays this season.......Rivers is a turn over waiting to happen at this point and the Chargers OL is in shambles (they're working out players off the street) so this is the game for Troy to get some chances for an INT or maybe a strip sack........

    Troy's first game back

    I've kinda thought for several weeks that we were saving him for the bigger picture at the end. I'm just glad to see him in there some. He didn't do much but he's great against the run even not 100%

    We can't do what we want to do without him. We gotta have him being Troy.

    Where
    Troy, don't get injured. If it confuses the offense then keep running around.

    And their fans.

    The thing about Troy is a presence. Even when he isn't having a great game, you always have to account for where he is, which makes the coverages a little more difficult to read. From what I read, if Troy was not up on the line, he was in deep coverage, swapping with Clark.

    Good news is there is absolutely no issue with his calf or other areas after that game. With Ike already out, will definitely need him back there supporting the passing game. Would not be surprised at all if DL inverts the coverage between Troy and Cortez where Troy covers the underneath stuff and Cortez covers deep half.
