    It's not like Will Allen is Scott Shields. If Scott Shields 'wouldn't hurt us'... that'd be bad.
    Ha I had high hopes for Scott Shields lol

    I like the signing... I don't like the fact that the Steelers let him walk this past offseason only to resign him now.. after starting 0-4 in an attempt to save a season that probably can't be saved anyway. Maybe a little to late.

    Interestingly enough, if Allen does sign with the Steelers, he'll be cashing checks from both teams for the rest of the season...

    If he was with the Steelers the rest of the season, he'd make another $680K on top of the $905K that was guaranteed when he was on the Cowboys' opening day roster...

    Bye, bye Troy? Put down that extra beer. Troy is back to being old troy, but he's almost ALWAYS in the box so he's not getting the turnovers. Bye, bye Troy. What planet do some of you live on?

    Maybe he meant Clark after his media tour.

    Unfortuantely I doubt that's what he meant, but maybe.

    Why?
    The least of our problems is a backup safety...

    Troy is back to being old Troy? I'd say not. The Troy we have all come to know the last 4-5 years wears sweatpants during most games (instead of shoulder pads). It's good to see now that he is finally making a few plays, seeing as how it helped us get off to such a great start lol.. Will Allen was very solid (in Troy's absence).. for a fraction of Troy's salary.

    Seriously man. He's one of the lofty contracts that needs dumped if we are gonna rebuild this team. Ike is another. Since it is well known at this point that we are in rebuilding mode, you either sign guys like troy and Ike next year to greatly reduced contracts, or let them walk. If you boys don't agree with that last statement, I would ask you to "Drink another" lol.

    Cheers! lol

    and I like Troy guys. Don't get it twisted. It's just that we need to make this sacrifices if we are going to get this team turned around. Keeping Troy around (at the tail end of his career) at this contract is foolish...
