    I couldnt say if he is any better but Adrian Wilson of the Cardinals would be near the very top of the list.

    There may be two better athletes on the Steelers:

    Ike Taylor
    Nate Washington

    But, there aren't any better football players in the NFL than Troy right now.

    2.62) Josh Jones, SS, NC State
    3.94) Sidney Jones, CB, Wash

    4.124) James Connor, RB, Pitt

    7.219) Stevie Tu'ikolovatu, DT, USC

    I suggest that this man is the best football player in the NFL right now. Because I'm afraid to nominate anyone else.

    If he insists I have no problem nominating him.

    Six of one, half dozen of the other, they are the reason the Steelers defense is playing lights out.

    Good call. Though I wish either one of them had hands as good as Troy.

    I've been thinking about this all morning in lieu of actual work. I don't know how you'd describe Troy's unique skill set. He certainly is athletic. But I'm not sure all of his play making abilities come from athleticism alone.

    Take some one like D'shea Townsend. He's as athletic as a roll of tape, yet his smarts put him good position. Now combine that kind of football knowledge w/ Troy's freaky speed to the ball? And BAM you get one helluva football player. Last guy we had like that was named Rod Woodson.

    And honestly i think Lawrence Timmons will prove to be the best athlete on the team. I can't wait til he gets the defense completely.
