No.

They did not let Rod go.

They asked Rod to switch to Safety. Rod said no, he was going still compete at CB. Because of that, Rod signed somewhere else. The Steelers were TRYING to sign him.

Balls to the wall is fine... in its place.

But the great players have learned how to keep themselves healthy as well, for instance... not going DIVING OVER THE TOP of the entire OL... just to get flipped on your head.

I love Troy. I want him to be a part of us until he retires. But he needs to start taking care of himself ON THE FIELD.

touche preach. That I do agree with.

BUT. how can you tell a player not to play the way that makes him the most effective?

That's how he plays. balls. to. the. wall. every play.

Lets all take a valium or percocet and watch the 2005 SB DVD (w/ playoffs) ... then rethink our position on troy.

If it would not be for our mobile QB....He would have been sacked twice as much....i really can't believe you made this statement knowing how bad our line was. We rode Big Bens back last year.
