Where exactly do you expect them to find a starting calibre corner at this juncture of the season?

We always seem to find the worst possible replacements.

Some encouraging tidbits from Rotoworld:



King was nothing short of woeful while playing for the Colts last season...

King was one of the worst corners in the league last year when pressed into a starting role outside.

King has elite speed, but lacks physicality and graded out as the worst corner in the league last season by Pro Football Focus.

The 2008 fourth-rounder was routinely toasted in coverage while playing through groin, ankle, and shoulder injuries as a fill-in for starter Ron Bartell last season.



Looks like a poor man's Josh Victorian.

Justin King is nothing special but he is a better option than rolling freaking Josh Victorian or Robert Golden out there in a meaningful game.

As might be expected, none of the Steelers defensive backs had a good day. Tony Romo threw for 341 yards against a secondary thinned by injuries. Replacement corner Josh Victorian was targeted nine times and gave up seven completions for 88 yards, according to Pro Football Focus. The other stats: Lewis, 5 of 9, 76 yards, 1 TD; Robert Golden, 3 of 4, 30 yards, 1 TD; Polamalu, 2 of 3, 17 yards; Curtis Brown, 1 of 1, 4 yards; Ryan Clark, 1 of 2, 17 yards.

is there some sort of secret advanced cloning and ultra fast mind and body conditioning program out there - Make Ike donate a few hairs.

That last part reads a lot worse the second time around.

Every free agent that was worth anything has already been signed. What kind of talent do you think you're going to find at week 16? Be realistic here guys.

Don't care, but if this team expects to make the playoffs they need to find someone that can cover and tackle on an island so that Troy and Clark can play LeBeau defense
