Default Steelers Jobs on the Line

Steelers jobs on the line

By The Tribune-Review
Friday, August 25, 2006

Here are some position battles to watch during the Steelers' exhibition game tonight against the Philadelphia Eagles:

Free safety

Ryan Clark vs. Tyrone Carter

The rotation heads back to Carter, who also started in the exhibition opener. Clark likely will move back into the starting spot next Thursday against Carolina. The Steelers paid Clark a nice signing bonus to join the team, so he must show he is worth the investment.


Bryant McFadden vs. Ricardo Colclough

With Deshea Townsend missing this week -- and perhaps more -- with a thumb injury, the Steelers will turn to two former high-round draft picks. McFadden excelled in pass defense situations last season, and Colclough has caught coach Bill Cowher's eye in camp.


Chris Gardocki vs. Mike Barr

The salary cap won't be an issue for the Steelers, which should give the edge to the veteran Gardocki. Barr, who has been cut by the Steelers twice, has impressed the staff in camp, but Gardocki provides the much safer bet. That could be a decisive factor for a team that fashions itself as a repeat champion.

Kickoff/punt returns

Quincy Morgan vs. Santonio Holmes, Willie Reid

Morgan is the most experienced kickoff return man, but he could be victim of a number's game if rookies Holmes and Reid show they can handle the job. Holmes and Reid also may continue to work as twin safeties on punt returns, an experiment that began in the Vikings preseason game.

McFadden all the way.

The battle between Barr and Gardocki is looking tough.
