    You're right...every Steeler should be having 14 tackle games on a regular basis...

    Very true. I just hope nobody sneezes on him. I'd hate to see him on the IR.

    I never said he was stellar. I was just pointing out that he starting all 16 games for us for 5 years in a row (and therefore not a backup for us during his prime years, as you stated).

    As I stated, I stand corrected..... I meant that he was a backup when Bell was on the team and healthy..

    Well, yeah...Bell was a 2nd round pick who started all 16 games as rookie while Larry Foote was still at Michigan, so everyone would expect that an NFL defensive rookie of the year who packed a punch would keep his job over a scrawny 4th round pick.

    It's not surprising at all that a mid-round selection on defense wasn't a full time starter during his first 2 years in the league (Foote started 3 out of his first 30 games during his first 2 pro seasons, but then he was an established starter for the next 5 years).

    Ike Taylor, who was also a 4th round pick the year after we drafted Foote, followed a similar path early on in his Steeler career (Ike started 2 out of his first 29 games during his first 2 pro seasons, but then became an established starter from that point on...except for the 5 game demotion into Cowher's doghouse in 2006, of course).

    Wouldn't they incur quite a bit of too many men on the field penalties under your scenario....
