Re: Steelers' McFadden waiting in the wings
Considering the best CB in New England not named Asante over the last few years was a wide receiver, townsend would have been an immediate improvement. :)
I've been waiting for McFadden from the start. Townsend is smart, but the average wideout today can burn him easily. He's okay covering a team's #2 or #3, but if he has to line up over a #1 he's toast. B-Mac has all the tools and he's a great hitter, too. He's a great compliment to Ike. Townsend would make an excellent nickel back because they generally cover more of the underneath stuff and clog up the middle of the field.
