    Deshea Townsend...a great example of paying it forward

    http://postgazette.com/pg/10137/1058724-66.stm

    Hope this model works for others as it is in Altoona. A great humanitarian cause for Deshea to be involved.

    Re: Deshea Townsend...a great example of paying it forward

    Thanks for passing this information along, because a big-time media outlet like ESPN would give something good like this one-millionth of the attention that they give negative stories like Roethlisberger, Cushing, Vick, Plaxico, etc.

    Nice story, thanks!!

    Maybe if we post enough on this thread, some bot will bring it to ESPN's attention or something!!

    BTW - why is he a free agent? I will always associate him with that pic against Dallas, to get us to the playoffs (and the Superbowl !! ) two years ago.

    I guess his play went down or something?


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

    He'll be 35 years old at the start of the season. At a position predicated on speed like CB, you don't see too many freaks of nature like Darrell Green lasting into their late 30's.

    thanks for posting a great story! id like to see him back in black and gold, but will allen is now wearing 26 so i am guessing that is slim to none. I think he would make a good FS or nickel or dime guy. He isnt the fastest guy, but he has that savy vet sneakiness about him, plus i believe he was the only DB last year to have a INT for the steelers.

    Deshea was the first cornerback to get an interception last year (other defensive backs like Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark had interceptions last season, though). His interception came in the last game of the season in Miami (although fellow cornerback Ike Taylor had an interception later in that same game against the Dolphins).

    I never looked at Deshea while he was sporting Woodsons number and thought, this dude is killing Rods legacy or that guy just doesn't look right wearing that 26. The fact of the matter is, I never thought of it at all.

    Deshea was a gift to this team when as a starter. Very underated.
