Why?

don't forget, our SS's don't play like safeties. They are required to play almost like LB's. How many backup safeties can play the position like that?

I'm not saying TC is a great safety or even the best in the league as a backup. Only that he fits our system and the best back up safety FOR US.

Sadly, you can thank Anthony Smith for TC's remaining here. Had AS come of age, he would have taken TC's place a year or two ago, and would be moving tino the starting spot thi year if not last.
I totally respect your argument for TC. I don't care for TC and think he has been exposed more the past few years than made good plays overall.

I have never been a TC fan and think it's time for the FO to upgrade our backup SS and FS positions. I don't want a very average safety in TC playing defense for us anymore and I would love nothing more than an upgrade at that position.

While Troy has saved the secondary for years now, each game he's missed outside the Denver game our secondary was totally exposed and that includes Ryan Clark, TC, Ike Taylor and William Gay.

You had to go and bring up the name of Anthony Smith Listen I really had high hopes for Smith when he was drafted, unfortunately he couldn't handle it mentally playing for the Steelers. I just feel the 2010 draft includes a lot of talent at the CB and Safety positions. Hopefully we can draft a safety and then possibly pick 1 up through FA until the rookie is ready to play.

Also, I did want to get your opinion on Ryan Mundy. Do you feel he can start at safety for us or are we just holding out hope like in we did for Anthony Smith?
