Default Who backs up Troy

Are we that bad at the 2 deep that we can't give Troy a rest for a game or 2?

Why would they give him a game or two off??? The only way they give him a game off is if #1 or #2 seed is locked up in week 17.

Like the above post states...this isn't baseball (or hockey). There's only 16 games in a season, not 162 or 82...where you can afford to give guys a rest.

I believe Mundy is Troy's backup, and while we can't necessarily give Troy the day off, I can see the reasoning going into games with Carolina and Cleveland the last two weeks.

i agree. they should rest their best defensive player while they are fighting for a playoff spot. tomlin is such a nazi.

Troy is hurting but at this time in the season so are lots of players

Too bad the Ravens did not blow the game last night - maybe New Orleans or the Browns can beat Baltimore

Being able to sit Troy and Roethlisberger for the Browns game would be nice

We have zero depth at defensiveback.

well, obviously we can't give a Troy a game off, but i do have a great idea....

Why don't we just use the defensive squad on offense too. lol....They couldn't do any worse. Hand the ball off to Harrison and let him mow people down.
