    I don't understand your disdain for Whisenhunt. After all, he was a big part of a SB winning team.

    As for Gay, he was released because he had an escelator clause in his contract that paid him as a starter if he was starting games. Gay started last year and was due a salary bump as a result. If he had not hit the incentives, he would be paid as a nickel back, where he is actually somewhat effective.

    I would only make this move if Tim McKyer isn't available.

    If we need to cut Ike in order to re-sign Lewis, then bringing back Gay on a vet minimum to be our nickel corner would make sense (he always played his best as a 3rd CB). Keenan Lewis and Cortez Allen starting outside, William Gay handling the slot receivers in nickel and dime packages, and Curtis Brown and Josh Victorian contributing on special teams and as the 4th and 5th CB's (then maybe draft a guy in the middle rounds to compete with them...someone like B.W. Webb from Tomlin's alma mater William & Mary). That's not a bad corps of CB's overall.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Wowzers! There is so much wrong with your post here, I don't know where to begin. "William Gay handling the slot receivers", and Curtis Brown on defense (I shudder at that--Special teams he's fine).

    whats this say about where curtis brown is, if true?

    not exactly a ringing endorsement from the coaching staff.
