What a depressing thing to read after a title like that. You got me! Why do we re-sign players (and offensive coordinators) that work against the team.

Willie Gay is still young. We gave him his shot at starting corner. It didn't work out. However, I can live with him being our Nickel/Dime guy. He was money in that role last season. Like the rest of our defense, Gay actually had good coverage against most pass's in the Super Bowl, problem was, Rodgers put them on a LASER. I'm confident in our FO and giving these guys time to become good players.

Gay had his chance to prove himself.....We could use a good bench warmer in December!:coffee:

I still would take Gay over McFadden. McFadden is just out there making tackles as receivers catch the ball in front of him. Gay at least plays tight. Still neither is the answer as a starter. For what they both make and Will Allen, I wonder if the Steelers could have signed Richard Marshall from Carolina who got 15 million over three years and would be an improvement on what we have. or somebody else?

Gay is only a fraction of our poor pass coverage...Lots of blame to spread around!

That's right. And it doesn't help that BMac and Troy were walking wounded at best.

I like Gay in the slot but was kind of happy when I read that one of the even younger guys were going to have a chance to step up and get some major playing time like Brown, Allen, Butler or Lewis.

Hope the rookies can step up, then we donʻt have to worry about it.

Plus, if he wasn't on the team, we wouldn't have comments like this that I can get a laugh at:

I like Gay in the slot

McFadden over Gay? That's crazy talk.
You mention that McFadden is "out there making tackles as receivers catch the ball in front of him". Well, that is precisely the cornerback role in LeBeau's defensive scheme which is why the Steelers don't give up many big plays. McFadden, and moreso Ike Taylor, are cornerbacks who fit in the Steeler scheme as they generally keep the man infront of them, and they can both tackle very well. This is because our defensive scheme relies on the LB's and DL's to pressure the QB, rather than coverage LB's or DL's.

Looks like Asante is not happy in Philadelphia. From what I read his salary is around 5.9mill. Age 30.. Probowl player.

How can we not go after him? I read the Eagles are looking possibly at a 2nd day draft pick. Seriously? I'll pick him up in Philly and drive him to Pittsburgh.

That is the 7th ring sitting right there.

My bad, 5.9mill cap hit for the Eagles, I think.. In a trade it might be 9mill. But he could restructure it I'm sure.

Him and Ike, dump Mac, take the 2.5mill savings.

Gay has to be the worst cb I have ever seen. I don't know why anyone says that they don't mind him play nickel. He was just as bad in that spot as he was as a starter. If I recall correctly, he got beat continuously by a slow, rookie TE last season against the Pats. That's a cb being beat by a blocking TE. That's just plain embarrassing! He should be paying the Steelers to get to be on the team, not the other way around.

Why did we resign Moore? He's been on the decline for years, Redman already does everything he does better, and Batch already looks better than him in camp...I guess maybe they want a veteran presence or something but it just seems like a wasted signing to me...

Gay I understand, when used IN MODERATON he can be very effective...but he should not be on the field nearly every snap. I'd like to see a nickel rotation of sorts with Gay, Butler, and Brown all getting time...
