I say their both good backups...but NOT starters...this defense is missing something big time and it's not just Troy..against GB they couldn't stop my kids pop warner team..definately not the Steelers Defense we're use to seeing..I say changes need to start from the top and start from there..

I totally agree, Gay can stay only if hes playing the dime and nickel... and only has to play to zone... he cannot cover one on one, he cant tackle, carter is slow, old, and garbage!

it would be great if we brought in a proven young corner!

Carter was all over the field today, unfortunately a day late and a dollar short each time.....

Gay was also all over the field....literally, laying down on it after each Paker receiver put a juke on his ass.....

I hate talking bad about Steelers who are trying their best and simply don't have the physical ability to do the task required of them.

I have a hard time believing Tyrone Carter is the best backup safety the Steelers can get. I also have a hard time believing William Gay is a solid #2 corner in this league.

In the off season I would like to see one of two scenarios happen.

#1 Steelers draft the best corner available and have him compete with Gay for the starting spot. Then pick up a faster safety via free agency.

#2 Steelers draft the best SAFETY available and bring in a solid #2 corner.

The offense is good enough right now. Even if Ben gets hurt the offense will be good enough to win without him (as long as the defense has all it's starters).

This season has proven that if key starters on defense get hurt the Steelers do not have enough in the secondary to stop people from moving the ball.

Is it me or does Gay seem to fall down every game?

Carter tries but does not have the skill or talent to be a full time starter. A backup not a starter. But I don't think they thought Troy was going to be out this long.

I'd keep Carter and be patient with Gay. I know he's horrible this year but that can change.

I'm hopeful that Gay just isn't ready yet. Burnett looks promising and Carter does have the heart (as said by someone earlier) just not the talent.

I think Ike Taylor is waaaay overhyped myself, but my question is: If Gay is consistently getting exposed, why isn't Deshea starting? He's never been fast, but he's always been smart.


Part of our problem has been tackling as well.

Once again.

I fail to see why people are baggin on Carter... Just because he couldn't chase a play down FROM ACROSS THE FIELD?

Or is everyone assuming the long TD was Carter's fault.

I go back to what Ryan Clark said . . . . you don't know the coverages, you don't know who was supposed to be there.

He is right.

And yes, I think TC is probably one of the best BACKUP Safeties WE are going to get... because anyone that has the talent to be the BEST Backup in the league, will be good enough to start on a number of teams.
