    Dumb question: As bad as our defensive backfield is ...

    As bad as our defensive backfield is, excepting Haden of course (and maybe Hilton or Sutton?) why isn't our rookie playing, Marcus Allen (S), I guess he's worse than even Burns, etc.?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    As I recall, his rep coming in was good tackler, hits hard not so good in coverage... Dimebacker kinda thing. Not so sure that is what we need.

    Perhaps Butler could blitz Allen and actually use one of our best coverage guys to cover a receiver...LOL
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    Defense has played well last 2 games, no need to start throwing guys out there.

    That's what some of us said when we spent the draft pick on him.

    Agree. The secondary has slowly been improving. Let them continue to play together and gel. That being said, I'd hope that they will be all over Burns this week. Once back I hope he is on a short leash. Make or break time...turn it around or hit the pine.

    I'd already have him riding the pine ... if we had anybody clearly better to replace him with.

    Sure wish we could pick up a solid CB in a trade before the deadline. It could make all the difference for this team this year.
