Same here. Not sure it's worth seeing him on offense If the chance of injury doubles. I'm content with Troy picking off balls and laying the smack down while establishing himself as the best safety in the NFL.

What do you think? Preparing for a new gadget man in case El leaves?

Troy needs to stay on the 'D" side of the ball because of what he brings to the "D". It's just too risky based on that. I'm sure he would kick some serious butt on the "O" side but that's one chance I hope we don't take.

I would agree not risking him for injury, but he would probably be great for a "big game" reverse on a kick-off .....anyone remember the ratbird game(last game of season in '03) when he took a fake punt about 85 yards for a TD?

If Randle El leaves, we might just get to see...

Troy means way to much to us on defense! Let him play defense only

I wouldn't mind seeing Troy taking it over the top sometimes,like Sweetness used to.

You know having Troy in the backfield would make a defense flip out and call a time out.Does he run it,catch a pass out of the backfield,or do we fake to him?

I agree...you know how damn athletic the guy is...imagine Hines lined up with Randel El coming in motion and Troy lined up in the backfield or something...that would be the trickest of the trickey :)
