Your answer is simply cut him...I wonder if you were working some where and were injured and someone just said cut him how you would feel.
I believe if Troy could be on the field he would be there. This season is far from over and calling for heads this many games in does not help anything.
Sounds like you last checked in 2010, then. Yes, when people are making 10+ million a year to ride pine, it's acceptable to say they need to be cut or take a pay cut. Not sure how anyone could disagree with that, unless they're Troy fanboys. I sure didn't see anyone crying that Sweed got cut while on IR, and Troy has been nursing that leg for longer than Sweed was even a Steeler. There are people crying for Hampton to go, and he makes half of Troys paycheck, and actually plays. He was great too...why doesn't he get a free ride for life for his past performance? People want Ike benched and/or cut immediately...and he never misses game time. Troy could build himself a hot dog and beer stand on the sidelines though and run it full time, and he'd still get a free pass from fans.
Always great to see a fan getting ripped and called less of a fan because he doesn't agree that someone who sits the bench 80% of the time deserves to be one of the top played players on the team.
