That wasn't necessarily what bothered me, but then he goes on to talk about the schedule, citing games against our division and conference in a way that made it seem like he thought we were the mid-2000 Steelers. e.g. Implying we should be able to confuse Geno next week. Why would you even make that claim, when teams have just done whatever they've wanted this year against our D? The D has given up BIG leads off the bat, giving them the opportunity to play with the lead and putting our O at a disadvantage.
    Im actually glad to hear confidence.

    I love Clark as a player. One of the hardest hitters I've ever seen. He's a Steeler, man.

If you want to prepare for your post-career (analyst), fine. Step aside and make room for the Sharknado!

    I'm probably overreacting as usual, but it is something that bothered me today, seeing Clark on the TV seemingly all day.
    Ryan's best playing days may be behind him, but he's easily one of the best/most articulate speakers on the team, possibly in the NFL. His comments are generally knowledgeable and intelligent, and rather less canned than Mike-we-embrace-everything-Tomlin's. I don't mind hearing him.

    Also, I think he's preparing for his post playing career..

    Shamarko isn't a FS. He was drafted to be our future SS.

    If Ben did this, almost everyone here would be going nuts. When Clark does it, he gets a pass. Considering the team is 0-4, no player should be going on media tours even if it is the bye week.

    I haven't heard anybody complaint about Ben's weekly radio show.
