Some experience is better than none and what little he did get was probably against the better competition in the league.

Yeah, I believe Carter is 29 yrs old. I have not seen enough of him to really make an honest or accurate observation of the guy and that's what scares me. Not sure If want him filling in for Hope if he leaves. He sure does talk alot on the field though. Heard him on the mic a few times this season.

..... if he sincerely "WANTS" to remain a Stiller, he'll inform his agent to pursue 'alternative' means of structuring his contract with the Club:
if it is BS, he'll go else-where.

A 'smart' ball-player can sense whan he is a part of something with potential:
does he take the money and run, or stay and remain a winner?

I wouldn't want Carter to start, he has a big mouth, and he's only like 5'9". Troy's the physical Safety, we need someone who can play the pass. Mike Logan might be able to if he could stay healthy for a year, but he's had problems all this year, and was on IR most of last year. I'd assume a FA pick up (from the Falcons, they have 3 FA's who are 28 years old and have all started at FS in the NFL) or a first day draft pick. Probably the former, because our day 1 draft picks'll probably be C, WR, and DE or RB (not nessacarily in that order).

The bottom line is almost always this: Stay in Pittsburgh for fair money and contend every year, or go play in Arizona or Cleveland for a few more sheckles and never play in a Championship game again.

You got it. I believe we resign him though.

We won the super bowl with Hope as our starting safety so I see no reason why we shouldnt re-sign him. He is a big hitter and has a knack for Int's and making a big play..I like Tyrone Carter alot, he reminds me of a better version of Lee Flowers.

tyrone can take the place? no he's backup and a special team player.hope stay it's sure at 80%. i say what i think but it's always mo'money and chris now has a super bowl so cromartie is maybe the answer in draft but in free agent the young db of seahawks and ex gator marquand manuel is an oportunity.

keep in mind....Hope has the experience of playing with Troy...Troy is a special deal....the way Lebeau uses him, is very unorthodox....Hope is comfortable with the scheme...allowing Troy to be Troy. Dont dismiss the fact that Hope is often left alone while Troy roams...and he has given up very few big plays.

Hope is better than he's being given credit for...and bringing in a new FS will take alot of adjustment, including having to rein in Troy for awhile. Signing Hope has to be a priority.
