Wow, is this our worst secondary ever? I don't remember seeing a Steelers secondary this bad in all my years of watching Steelers football. Carter can't cover. Ike Taylor, IMHO, has lost his status as a shutdown corner. Clark looks like nothing but a big hitter, I haven't seen him in good coverage or wrap people up very often this season. And Gay, he's just horrible. He can't play man-to-man, he can't play zone, and his tackling is atrocious.

I know we miss Polamalu, but of losing one player (even as good as Polamalu) caused this defensive secondary to be this bad, then they were never that good to begin with.

Tyrone Carter has been awful for ever on this team... why do we keep him around?

Draft a rookie, that actually has common sense and can play football, I would rather have anthony smith than tyrone carter!

Troy get your knee better! That secondary needs troy, they are nothing with out his presence!

True, but we can't be so dependent on one player. He needs help back there. Time to look to the draft for some secondary help.

No this is our second worst secondary. The worst secondary on the Steelers was in the late 1960s when Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder were the CBs and Billy Barty, former midget actor, was the safety.

The trio made for some interesting schemes, but their lack of execution put them on the bench after three games.

I want them to draft Taylor Mays USC, playmaker, big guy, fast and physcal... something about USC's defenders that is special.... Look at Clay Mathews he tore us up tonight..

Glad for the win but the secondary is putrid. Packers should of thrown on every down right down the middle of the field.

I want Terrance Cody, the defensive tackle from Alabama. But if he wasn't available, Taylor Mays would be a great pick.

Cody might become a "need" pick if we don't resign Hampton.
