Some reprieve on the OL, thank GOD.

Plus, Harrison could be back. Oh, and Troy is already hurt? I am kind of sick of all his leg injuries. Judging from watching him last week, I think it's time for Pgh to seriously act on moving on to life without Troy. He looked sloppier than usual, and now he's already hurt again.

Says Foster came out because he had an optical migraine and was seeing double.

Is it necessary to not see double if you are a right guard?:eek:

Seriously though, does he have a history of migraines like that top string RB did a few years back? Or would the thin air in Denver be likely to cause them?

Troy can stay as long as he wants within reason. BUT, they do need to upgrade S.
I'd find a way to get the best Safety in the draft this coming year. Someone to train under both Clark and Troy since we don't know which one will go first. It will be a costly position til one of the geezers leave, but its also a valuable position for us.
Mundy ain't cutting it.

The D is no where near the same when either of our starters are out. Not even close. Eric Reid would look nice in the black and gold, but I think he will go higher than our pick, like in the top 10? How about TJ McDonald of USC? He would be a fine fit, however, with Ike scheduled to turn 33 and make $6 mill next year, and the fact that all our others CBs seem pretty crappy, they may be forced to draft CB in the 1st round next year.

Safety, CB and Linebacker. BPA at any of these three positions is fine by me.

We already have a future starting safety on the team: Robert Golden. He will be good...maybe not Troy good, but better than your average safety.

if Robert Golden is so good, then why did he go undrafted?

Sign Chadman up for upgrading at Safety in the upcoming draft. Golden might very well be good, but there are 2 Safety positions, and not sure we can bank the teams future on an undrafted guy just yet.

I couldn't agree more...

Yeah...we were missing the undrafted Ryan Clark, the undrafted James Harrison, plus the undrafted Ramon Foster was injured in the first quarter.

We have a trend of doubling up on positions in the draft recently. Next year would be a great year to double up on taking a couple of Safeties. This year's Safety class is pretty talented and deep.

I'd still like to know why CBs can't convert to Safeties if CB requires more talent.

I don't think it's simply an issue of talent...
