Thread: Chris Carter on I.R./Marshall McFadden now on Active Roster/Jamie McCoy back on P.S.

    Good move! This will slide A. Robinson up a notch, and add depth at ILB since Sylvester has been inactive the past 2 games. McFadden might be the best option available at ILB if one was necessary.

    Carter played very little lately anyway. He had 1 punt downed and 1 ST tackle assist during the past 4 game winning streak.

    Marshall McFadden played very well in the pre-season. I suppose he will be on the ST's. Wouldn't it be nice if he caused a ST turnover or something. Oh, btw, someone better remind him not to hold or do any blocking in the back if he is on any of those teams. Otherwise, one and done!

    I agree that those are probably the top three needs.

    However, the Steelers like to take BPA. If Keenan Lewis or Max Starks leave, you could even take a CB or an OT in the first. Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert together will get Ben killed (and Gilbert can't stay healthy). This is a great CB draft. Ask Baltimore how important it is to have lots of healthy corners. If Lewis leaves and Ike's talent starts to fade, we will be very thin.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I think after Ben's injury another OT could very well be in the mix if a highly rated one is on the board.

    You are right about never having enough CBs but we have a better set of options there now than we may have had in the past 5-7 years. Even if Lewis leaves and they won't let him. Our situation at Safety is far more dire plus drafting in the bottom 25% of the draft like we usually do will get you the top ranked or second best safety in the draft. I still say as Ike Taylor's skill degrades it is possible he becomes our Free Safety of the future.

    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!

    Why would Ike make a good free safety of the future? He's not a big hitter like Clark, and with those hands he's certainly no ballhawk back there. His base salary next year is $6 million and it's $7 million in 2014 (plus the pro-rated portion of his signing bonus adding to the cap hit). If he's not a top notch corner, he won't be here at all at those prices.
