Default Carter to replace Smith at FS

things aren't looking good for anthony......

Quote:
Tyrone Carter said the Steelers coaches have told him he will start in place of Anthony Smith at free safety Thursday night in St. Louis while Clark Haggans expects to play against the Rams.

Carter, who normally plays strong safety, said he didn't ask for any explanations as to why he'll open at free safety in the 8:15 p.m. game Thursday.

"They just said I'll be starting," Carter said of the Steelers' coaches.

Smith said the two rotated at free safety during practice Tuesday.

Haggans took part in the Steelers' only practice this week on a limited basis even though he sprained his left knee Sunday in the team's 29-22 loss to the Jaguars.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that it would be tough for Haggans to play against the Rams since it is such a short week.

Haggans said the only way he won't play Thursday is, "if my heart stopped beating, that's it."

I saw that they replaced him against Jax, but then he came with the interception and thought he was safe. I guess not.....

On another note, is nice to see haggans heart for the game, that's one of the reasons I want him back next year

He's was beat like a rug against the Patsy's, and didn't have real good game against the Jags except for the int. They have to do something to shake things up!

That interception turned the game around and gave us a fighting chance. Hopefully, Smith will learn from his mistakes and realize that he can really contribute in a positve way.

I think this is a smart move. I don't think our defense can afford to have two risk takers in the defensive backfield. I think this is the reason Clark was starting over Smith earlier this season. Besides Smith is a punk. And maybe sometime on the bench will humble him a bit.

Tyron played well in the absances of Troy and I think that Smith is still a bit to enixperienced at this point.

Carter has played well. Sometimes you just have to shake things up. Hopefully this will light a new fire under the defense.

i always considered clark and smith 1a and 1b. its pretty obvious carter and smith are 2a and 2b at this point. i think they can both succeed as starters but it is now evident that clark and troy are probably the top tandem in the league.

well.. hopefully he will learn from this like taylor did last year. all 4 of the 40+ yard plays given up this year were at the fault of anthony smith. 2 play actions, one qb rollout, and one trick play.. he had his head in the backfield way too much. he needs to learn to play disciplined. that hopefully will come with maturity and experience.

This is a move that is VERY WELL CALLED FOR. I was hoping that they would call for Carter to start and he is in my opinion more suited to play their then Smith is now especially considering that he is still in the learning process and I feel Carter can show him a few moves.
