    finally, someone who gets it. TP had to support a very young defense while also supporting an ineffective Ryan Clark. In his young days he was superman, but clearly that time has passed.

    that pretty much seems to be the consensus amongst all posters here...

    It's a consensus except for one guy who seems to think it was just a dumb move by "LeBoo" rather than a desperation move brought about by necessity.

    You better watch yourself...if you start acting too much like a sasquatch, we'll start quoting John Lithgow from Harry and the Hendersons to you instead of Christopher Lloyd from Back to the Future. No one wants that.

    Troy had a great year in 2013 ... health wise. He certainly didn't have a great year production wise. I still see the Miami TE bouncing off of him and walking into the end zone scoring the winning TD.

    For Troy's style to be effective he has to have the talent around him. People like Clark who could cover his behind. Guys like Harrison, Woodley, and Keisel who could put pressure on the QB allowing Troy to jump routes. The talent level dropped dramatically on the defense so Troy was often left with his jock around his ankles. Not to mention he is getting older and I'm sure a split second slower ... that's all it takes in the NFL these days to get beat.

    Troy was never a great open field tackler...

    What he did last year was force fumbles like it was his job...

    Wait a minute...
