Your post about Troy makes me feel like you are fishing for people to flame you. I disagree with you. Last time I checked he has contributed more to winning games for the Steelers than anyone on the forums. I do believe a true fan would be rooting for people who are injured on our team to get better and help out the team. Your answer is simply cut him...I wonder if you were working some where and were injured and someone just said cut him how you would feel.

I believe if Troy could be on the field he would be there. This season is far from over and calling for heads this many games in does not help anything.

Yeah, let's cut Troy because our depth at Safety behind him has proven to be terrific and capable of making plays.

If anything, let's ask him to restructure his deal and if he doesn't - trade bait. He's not the same he used to be, but he's still head and shoulders above the next SS in the entire league.

Regarding draft options, Matt Elam isn't going to be available to us if we aren't picking high in the second round. If you're a Gator fan (I am) you're seeing how impressive he can be in making plays not only in the secondary, but in the backfield. He's also a freak athlete that will impress at the combine and there's a good chance he'll get picked between 30 - 35.

I think you should all get to know the name Dion Jordan -- he's going to be the Steelers' first round pick this year.

I originally had Elam to PITT at 32, but with there being like five toher good safeties (McDonald, Lester, et cetera), I figured that Elam might drop to 64.

I prefer Elam, tomost of the other safeties... at 32 or 64*.

* (with some other defender at 64 or 32)

Elam better fits the Steelers' scheme, while guys like McDonald, Reid and Vaccaro are ballhawks. I mean, the Steelers had a trade for DeCastro with the Jets all but settled and they traded up for Ta'amu, showing they're ready and willing to pull the trigger on a trade for a prospect they like. Never say never, but it's unlikely that the Steelers end up with Elam. I'd like for them to, though. He's my personal favorite Safety in this draft, regardless of whether he plays SS or FS.

Sounds like you last checked in 2010, then. Yes, when people are making 10+ million a year to ride pine, it's acceptable to say they need to be cut or take a pay cut. Not sure how anyone could disagree with that, unless they're Troy fanboys. I sure didn't see anyone crying that Sweed got cut while on IR, and Troy has been nursing that leg for longer than Sweed was even a Steeler. There are people crying for Hampton to go, and he makes half of Troys paycheck, and actually plays. He was great too...why doesn't he get a free ride for life for his past performance? People want Ike benched and/or cut immediately...and he never misses game time. Troy could build himself a hot dog and beer stand on the sidelines though and run it full time, and he'd still get a free pass from fans.

Always great to see a fan getting ripped and called less of a fan because he doesn't agree that someone who sits the bench 80% of the time deserves to be one of the top played players on the team.
