With Burnett and Lewis looking like legitimate players...and with signing Keiwan Ratliff we now have:

Burnett
K.Lewis
Ratliff
Madison
Gay

Townsend
R. Lewis

This may be the end of Townsend!!!

I dont know ...You wouldnt know it because he flies under the radar...but Madison led the team with 25 special teams tackles...and led the team with seven postseason tackles on special teams during our playoff run.

He is a ST demon who (at this point in his career) brings more to the table than Townsend. Also keep in mind that he is 27 years old...as opposed to Townsend who is 34.

I would rather have a backup CB who leads the team in ST tackles, than a backup CB who can play backup safety in a pinch.

My money is on Townsend staying, I guess I am just a fan of him because he has been reliable forever (I think he and Hines joined the Steelers in the same draft class) and would like him to finish his career donning B&G.

We are not a plug and play offense.... I wish we were, but hey we won a SB...

I like that! That is hilarious!

SOS, DT.

I would think it would behoove you to put the hard on you have for Arians to more productive use.
