Default Gay re-signed. What do you think?

Steelers agreed to a multi-year contract with William Gay. That news is bound to cause an uproar considering how many people complained about him last year.

*edit* didn't see the thread below because it wasn't in the title.

CRAPPPPP !!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets hope the rookies show some good stuff in camp so Gay is one of the first ones cut. I figured they would keep him at least for training camp. Butler better be ready to take over that nickel back slot so that Gay is expendable.

The only time I thinks of W. Gay is when the opponent sends the ball down field for an easy completion and who's in the area? your right No. 22. Terrible signing

I think he fits the D scheme well IMO. He can blitz very well and as long as our safeties can have over the top help he is fine !

Right because blitzing from the cornerback position seems to be the most important trait of a Steelers QB.

people are down on him but I don't think he's any worse than Ike " I can't cover anybody to save my life" Taylor.But for some reason steeler fans give him a pass on getting burnt over and over and think he's actually decent

Other teams didn't even have an intrest in Taylor.

I never said gay over taylor.. I'd love to have someone else entirely over both.

What I am saying is taylor is no better than gay.. if you put taylor in the slot on 3rd down he be burnt all over the field also. taylor is below average but a sometimes decent tackler.

go watch films the proof is there.. he can't catch int's can't cover except when the sideline out of bounds does the work for him.

i'd love ot have an entirely new Corner.. but they just resigned taylor so it's not happening. He'll continue to give up his usual easy routes in game.

Some of you don't realize how much troy and clark cover for ike's mistakes.
