Okay. Let's say you get your wish. Gay is cut. Now what? Oh righttt.. we have that amazing shut-down corner the Rooney's have been hiding in their garage all this time!

Do we need to draft a solid Corner? Yes. But Gay has played well this year other than the Patriots game. Is he a corner that you can put on the other team's #1 receiver? No. But he's a good option in Nickel packages.

I have to agree with your assessment. There are some good corners in upcoming draft, but where the Steelers will be drafting they'll already be gone.

willie gay SUCKS when he takes on ANY receiver one on one.

his tackling sucks also, always tackles up high, if you need to refresh your memory, remember when AP ran his sorry ass over vs the vikes.

he is always hesitant on EVERY SINGLE PLAY.
hesitant to tackle, hesitant to adjust to the receiver.

and dont anyone start with this, he makes good plays here and there blah blah.
YEAH! for every one decent play he makes, he screws up on 100 other ones.

willie gay is only good at being weeally gay.

He's good for passes below 10 yards but gets burned like a mofo in big plays. Just blitz him every play.

I'm always at a loss for words when this topic comes up, except to joke that it has to be his last name. William Gay is neither spectacular nor awful. He's a pretty darned good nickel corner who actually won a few games for us during the regular season.

In fact, in the past five or six games, I've seen Troy blow more deep coverage and miss more tackles than Gay. Would anyone ever suggest that we "get rid of Troy"? I'm assuming not, but there are more than enough bozos out there, who knows?

McFadden has stunk it up royally all season long, and yet I haven't seen a single "Cut McFadden" thread. Why? Last name, maybe? It's ridiculous.

Totally disagree with the notion of getting rid of WIllie. He had a really good year...Despite the bad performance against NE and not the best performance in the SB, he had a good year. He's a really good nickel back. Our problem in secondary comes down to BMac, he hasn't played the same since he went to Arizona, got burned all year...I'm a fan of Willie and see no reason to get rid of him, BMac on the other hand well, he'd make a good fourth corner!

I agree with most of your assesmant, although I wouldn't neccesarily put it all on BMAC either, even though he was not up to the standard this season. We need more speed in the secondary and better coverage. I think what is more neccesary is a package that can handle the teams that go spread on us. Lebeau will find a way I am sure, but watching the Pack this year and and Patriots in years past the teams that had success against them played with a 4 man line and some cover 2. We love our D and the 3-4 zone blitz, but it does have weaknesses against offenses like the pack , Cheats, Saints run. IN the game on Sunday we had receivers open as well, the difference in the game was Ben misfired and Rodgers didn't, not the play of any one CB.

Bmac needs replaced this offseason if we want a chance at even making playoffs next year. every team knows exactly how to beat us now. even though we knew exactly what green bay was going to do in the super bowl we couldnt stop them because our corner and saftey play was well below average. bmac is a big reason why we cant stop the pass as is gay. gay plays less time then mcfadden yet has allowed more td's then anyone else on our team.

i would like to make a run at a good cb in free agency plus grab another in round 1 or 2
