Default What would you do with Troy and Browns?

If he can play but is not 100%, what I would do is make him active then if the Steelers are sucking it up, put him in in the second quarter. That would freak McCoy out...lol

It is good they are not telling because Troy is annoying to prepare for. It will take up part of their preparation time.

It would be better to rest him if the Steelers don't need him.

Sit him, they should be able to win without him. This would be the perfect time for the o to show up big.

in the first game with the browns. troy's presence didn't stop mccoy from completing 23 passes for 281 yds.

This is a tough decision. If you rest him, chance the Steelers give up the 2nd seed spot to the Ravens, but Troy got some rest. You play him, you risk injuring him for the playoffs but better chance of winning the 2nd seed spot and resting the rest of the team for a week. But its clear the Steelers wont win in the playoffs without Troy.

I say play Troy limited. Only like 50% of the snaps. If the Steelers are winning by a lot, he sits, if the Browns start to pull of an upset, put him in for more plays.

I'd say play him sparingly.
You can't have a multi-million dollar player sitting...he's sat enough this year...we need that win and that seed. Just play him carefully and probably not the entire game

sit him, you should be able to handle the browns and colt mccoy w out him and if you cant you werent a superbowl team anyways, best shot at the superbowl is a healthy troy and a bye week.

I agree, dress him but don't start him and only put him in if necessary.

we are in the playoffs already, therefore sit him. Yes its a gamble but even if we lose then he should be ready next week. I don't think we lose without him anyway. Its all about special teams with the Browns IMO. Stop Cribbs and we win easily. McCoy threw 3 pics and looked horrible against the Ravens and our D is every bit as theirs even without Troy. No upside to letting him play, we would just win more handily.
