Default Steelers best off season move.

It's either drafting Pouncey or hiring Al Everest as special teams coach imo, but maybe you can think of something else?

I honestly think bringing back McFadden was the best move. That secondary is not getting burned as much as it was when they put Gay out there on an island. Gay is playing well in the nickel, but he sucked as the main man back there. Adams didn't get called for one false start and seems to be blocking well for the run. I didn't hear his name at all in the last game and that is a good thing for an O-lineman. I do think Pouncey's pick up was probably pretty close to the McFadden deal though.

^This. The Steelers should have never let B-Mac walk and their draft day trade for McFadden had me gleeing. McFadden is a HUGE upgrade on the corner and is a bigger, faster, and more physical corner than Gay will ever be. Gay plays well in the Nickel defense and looked good last week on a blitz, but B-Mac deserves some kudos and should be lumped in with the "Polamalu and Aaron Smith are back" statements. How about " Polamalu, Aaron Smith AND Bryant McFadden are back" statements.

Still I think the addition of Everest has been huge. Jeff Reed has gone from being worst in the league at kickoffs to 9th. Reed even said Everest is the first coach to ever advise him on kickoffs, changed his steps approaching the ball and the results are evident. all of last year Jeff Reed had 3 touchbacks on kickoffs, he's already equaled that this year.

Look at San Diego, they're having our season from last year this year already having lost two games largely due to special team meltdowns.

Speaking of which how huge was that opening kickoff reverse against the titans? Anyway Everest is a nice addition.

Mac has been huge. But I wonder how much Troy has to do with it.
Pouncy is a close second.

Coaching wise
Sean Kuglar as the new offensive line coach and Al Everest as special teams coach,

Player wise
Bringing back B-mac and drafting Pouncy

I do not know much about specials teams other than our fools of the past didnt quite grasp the fact that you kick the ball, run to the ball, tackle the guy hlding the ball.

did Everest use color coded pictures to get the point across?lol


Pouncey is huge
Mac is almost as huge, but not sure where we would be if Gay was playing full time, lol

You wonder how much troy has to do with it? Well last year we went into the crappy without him, i think that speaks volumes, lol

I'll stick with my Gator!
