    I believe he would have been had we not lost Troy.
    Beat me to it. BMac did not have a good season at all as the key guy in AZ. The only reason I can see this move makes sense is as an insurance if Troy goes out again - "BMac without Troy > Gay without Troy". If Troy is in, it probably doesn't matter who is playing next to him.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Steelers trade the 5th round pick they got for Santonio to re-acquire Bryant McFadden = Good Feelings Among The Masses



    Steelers us one of their untradeable 5th round comp picks on a THIRD OLB in this draft = Bad Feelings Among The Masses

    I think Gay got a bad rap.

    I'm looking forward for the BMAC/GAY rotation that worked well for us...

    Wouldn't be surprised to see the Steelers bring back Clark Haggans...should be able to get him for a sixth-rounder and a bag of cheetoes.

    Heck, wouldn't be too surprised if the FO is working out Marvel Smith even as we speak.
    Wonder if Kendall Simmons would be interested in coming back?

    So many were hard on McFadden's play, thinking W. Gay was ready to replace him and outperform McFadden...We all saw first hand how that experiment went..
    The Steelers are correcting a mistake. Great move!

    Not sure if you were joking but you can forget about Faneca. Tomlin said on ESPN they are not interested and they're going to stick with the young guys.

    i thought that was the pick they got for holmes. that was a stellar move by the FO. basically trading holmes who they were just going to release and getting a solid cb like Bmac

    you must be happy then because RB Jonathan Dwyer was a great value in the 6th round!
