Default McFadden article

Cornering the Market: McFadden, Taylor, Colclough make bids to move up on the Steelers' depth chart
Saturday, August 13, 2005

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



Unlike most modern-day athletes, rookie cornerback Bryant McFadden has an appreciation for the sport in which he competes and its history. That was apparent the first day he reported to training camp at St. Vincent College and announced he wanted to be a cornerback in the reckless mold of Dick "Night Train" Lane."



Lane, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, played 16 years before McFadden was born.

"I'm impressed he knows 'Train,' " said defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who played with Lane on the Detroit Lions. "I'll be more impressed if he plays like 'Train.' "

McFadden, the Steelers' No. 2 draft pick, said he wants to play with the abandon of Lane and the tenacity and aggressiveness of Jack Tatum, a combination that would make him, oh, say, the biggest impact cornerback to hit the National Football League since Charles Woodson.

For now, though, he is one of three young cornerbacks trying to fit into the Steelers' nickel and dime defensive packages. And he is part of the trio of kid corners hoping to play well enough possibly to replace veteran Willie Williams at left cornerback.



The rest of the article is at the Post Gazette website

He's got some big time aspirations, lets hope he continues to impress in camp and in this upcoming season.

This is from Pro Football Weekly-
The early word from Steelers camp is that rookie Bryant McFadden has looked like the team?s best cornerback

I'm hoping McFadden will take over as starter at some point this season. His only downside though is he isnt much for catching ints. But as long as he blankets the receiver like its being reported in camp, knocking the balls down will be fine with me.

I dont mind if he's not getting INTs as long as

A.) he doesnt let them catch the ball
B.) if they do, he brings them down fast

My man Polamalu can pick up the interception slack :) I love what they're saying about him in that article
