    Time to move on.

    I couldn't believe Clark admitted that when Troy gets hurt, the entire mental state of the defense is in shambles. If this is the case, then it's time to move on. Plus, what is Troy scheduled to make next year? If
    he can't stay healthy, then don't drag the entire future of the team down. I am so sick of it. Look at McClendon as an example: Not high profile at all. He was an undrafted free agent out of Troy, for cripes sake. And yet, as we see, when you allow players to develop - and don't just hold on to vets playing time for too long - you will replenish the players. But you don't do that when holding on too long to over 30 vets who can't stay healthy; you have to move on. McClendon is obvious much more of a force than Hampton; but we would never know that if they endlessly held onto just playing CH. Time to move on from TP. Time to move to replace Foote. Time to shake the trees and find better CBs than we have. I am not saying so much this season, but certainly after it. Also, Worild showed he might be worth getting on the field more. I am just so sick of the "Steeler way" of not letting young players on the field and seeing what they can do. DL is so over the top with his "vets play only" BS. It's holding the team's development back, big time. Look at all the $ and time wasted on Aaron Smith, for cripe's sake. That is an example of futility. Get disciplined or get lost. Or should we see if we can add Kirkland, Chad Scott, Steed, Gildon, etc. to the roster while we are at it?

    Fact is, Clark admitted when Troy gets hurt, the mindset of the D gets depressed. That's great. Let's get more of that going.

    I'd rather play with ten on defense than have Mundy out there. (I'm only partially kidding)

    What is really troublesome is how bad is Will Allen that he can't push or provide an option to Mundy????????

    Of course we know none of the young guys would ever get a chance to even play a few series. Therein lies part of the problem of why we are so unprepared for the end of Troy's career and therefore must rely on Mundy.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    One may argue that you can't prepare for every hole in the dike, but, regardless, it seems the team fell too in love with every old guy they got and didn't do enough to prepare for their absence. You know damn well there is a love affair between Troy, DL and Tomlin, and they weren't about to insult him my bringing in a high draft pick for his position. In hindsight, our top 4 picks are likely to do little or nothing (Maybe DeCastro will end up helping) and Rainey is looking like he didn't deserve to be taken any higher than when he was (I know many of us thought he was a steal in the 5th, but so far, not so much.)

    Worilds showed how easy it is to sack an unsuspecting QB when left unblocked. Other than that Worilds didnt show me a thing.

    He wishes he was Gildon V2. Gildon has the all-time sack record for the franchise. I am going to make a bold prediction and say Worilds won't ever reach half that production in his career.

    Right. Get rid of a player that can still play well and commands the respect of the offense because the rest of the defense feels the absence of a DPOY and an all-time great...
