Townsend has such a great football head on his shoulders, and will serve as a great mentor for hopefully a couple of years to come, but put him in the nickel and let his record of steeler db sacks keep on going....its McFadden's rightful time to shine
I agree with you. I think all McFadden needs is a chance. He's a good corner as it is. If he starts, he and Ike will make quite a tandem.

i think that mcfadden will be happy with what ever offer the steelers give him either at the beginning of the yr or at the end.. drew just needs to suck it up.. lol

i guess 6 pages of ensuing panic and trashing the player should be expected.

yeah, lets piss mcfadden away into the wind (cause thats what all great teams do with a 2nd round draft pick in their 4th year)

pardon the rant, but people wanna shitcan this young player and not take into account that most of our cb's take several years to crack the starting line-up. deshea townsend had to wait just like mcfadden is now.

its not like we have a top 10 draft pick like rod woodson just sitting around.

and now people arte suggesting we draft a cb with the 1st pick? lmao. he will sit around and wait just like mcfadden has. and if a potential 1st round cb was thrown into the fire in his 1st year as a steeler? LOL most steelerfans would lose patience with him immediately (like the 1st time he got beat deep for a td).

hall, revis, davis, all got burnt and toasted last year for the bengals, jets, and browns, in ways that would have steelerfans up in arms.

we seem to demand perfection, but dont allow time for perfection to develop.

drew rosenhaus is no reason for doom and gloom.
I agree with you, SOMEWHAT. Signing Drew R. doesn't mean diddly. Is he not the agent for anyone else on our team?

However, the idea of drafting a first round corner, or atleast a corner on the first day, isn't a bad idea at all. Evidence: Talib in for a visit.

Hall, Revis, and Ross all did very well for their teams last year. ALL starting, and with the pass happy ways of this league, can never have too many good corners. But you're right, probably not in the first round.

It does take time for corners to develope in Dickie L's defense, Taylor still gets beat and for whatever reason people think he is a shut down corner. McFadden isnt any worse than what we already have on the table and good corners for our style of Defense arent easy to come by. He will be kept, will take to long to develope another corner for three years waiting to see if they actually pan out. I wouldnt mind drafting a Cb.. but not until the third...

McFadden went to FSU, so whenever he makes a play I can drop the tomahawk, so with that said, we should keep the guy, at least unitl Timmons starts making plays...I need to do my "politically incorrect" indian chant while watching my Steelers. Its fun for me...
