Gay is playing well, a lot better than McFadden was last year. Lewis has too but I really notice it with Gay. Taylor has been a shut down corner, we got Allen and Brown, two young corners who will hopefully be the future, Lewis is playing well and as mentioned Gay is too, I don't see a spot for "burnt all day" McFadden, then again I was even saying that last year.

Gay is playing well...I am not really impressed with Lewis. I think that Brown should get a shot, I would love to see what he can do.

I hate that Tomlin doesn't seem to want to let some guys get time. If something is not working why not try something new....I would love to see Brown getting time and Sly, why the hell is Sly not getting a shot with the injuries and lack of production.

That would would be a great idea if Butler was still on the team

Now everyone's going to go in the opposite direction on Gay. Too funny. He's OK. Just remember that Gay is OK - nothing more, nothing less - and you won't find yourselves in a murderous rage calling for his head when he screws up in some other game down the road.

i almost guarantee you will hear it as soon as this sunday if he misses a tackle on chris johnson. nevermind that CJ is one of the most dynamic backs in the league and makes a living breaking the ankles of backers and secondaries.

Gay hasn't been tested because teams don't need to pass when they can just run down our throat. Just what until LeBeau lines him up against Gronkowski again a few weeks down the road,

Let me interject some bi-curious thoughts into this very Gay conversation:

On the one hand I like that Gay guy because it's been said that he has been handling the load.

On the other hand Gay might not be all that great in the long run. He certainly hasn't faced a tosser that really brings it the way that sissy Tom Brady will and we might just find out Gay is not the way.

So I'm a little confused and not sure if Gay is right for me.
