Default Re: Steelers LB Sean Spence Will Begin Practicing Next Wednesday (!!!)

Spence's time is running out. VW has seriously stepped up his game from the beginning of the season. There are times where VW and LT are interchangeable on the field at a quick glance - and that's really not good news for Spence.

I hope he has a great recovery and I hope he comes back and plays professional football, but I've said it once and I'll say it again - VW is a rookie communicating the defensive calls to guys like Woodley, Timmons, Clark and Polamalu. If that's not trust and confidence in a player, I don't know what is. I very much doubt Sean Spence becomes a starting Linebacker for us, not with the way Williams has stepped up his game.

I think Spence has until next pre-season before he needs to start competing for that spot. Hard to say if Foote will still have a spot on the team or if we'll have decided to move on and look to the future. A lot of things will happen between now and next year though.

Somebody had once suggested Spence move to Safety. He would have to loose about 10 to 20 lbs. It's hard to guess how they had planned on using him. Vince Williams seems to be the opposite and the two don't seem like they should be competing for the same position. It's intriguing to think of the possibilities moving forward.

Troy has been playing in the box a LOT.

Spence could play similarly.

Not saying Spence will switch to SS, but more that Troy is currently playing the way that Spence would.

I don't think he will ever start on our team. I would love to be wrong but after that injury I don't see him ever having the speed or explosion he once had. I'm glad were keeping him around. Its a sign of a loyal and trustworthy organization because most teams would of cut him

I will say that I think he plays again. Just from what I've read.
