Townsend would make an excellent nickel back because they generally cover more of the underneath stuff and clog up the middle of the field.
I agree. I think McFadden will start and Townsend will be a great nickel back. He's a pretty good hitter and has had some memorable sacks over the years. He's also got great football smarts and I think he could be a DB coach after retirement.

This is definitely an area where I completely trust Tomlin.

Funny you'd mention that, I was thinking the same thing when I wrote that post. He's the kind of brain you want to keep in the game long after he retires, much the same way we did with Darren Perry and has been done with our new QB coach Ken Anderson. There are players who are humble motivators, there are players who are very good at their position, and there are players who are intelligent above and beyond the requirements of the game. When you find one who has all three, you make him a position coach. Troy is the same way and I would be surprised if he doesn't end up as a position coach when he retires (which will be in about 35 years, right? )

I am Not sold on McFadden as of right now, of course Townsend isnt going to improve that much since being he is already 32 years old or atleast he will be in a few months. If he hasnt hit that pro-bowl status by now, most likely he isnt going to get there... By the way everyone, this is just my opinions, I am not a Steelers or NFL insider..
