    Default The tackling ability of Allen has really helped

    If we are healthy and we have Ben's controlled passing attack, his abiliity to extend plays just a little and with our RB stable I think we can beat just about anyone if we use long sustained drives which rests our D. I really think that Allen at safety has made a big difference in our tackling ability he is just so much better than Monday. I (gulp) hesitate to even say this but it seems like and I'm sure this is open for debate that I wonder if we really need Troy to be put back in there? It seems like with Troy we take too many chances with our D and often we are out of position. I'm not sure how we've done it but having a CB deep and running clark underneath really shut down the ravens' WR's. Maybe that is just cause Pinta (TE) went down early with injury. Thoughs?

    Lets see on our Winning streak that was we have faced several teams with only 1 big #1 WR threat cincy (Green), Skins(garcon foot out), Giants (nicks hurt), Chiefs (.seems like baldwin got hurt early too..so only Bowe left), and then ravens whom we shut down. So maybe my theory is not good if we play a team with 2 decent WR's...Dallas, SD come to mind looking at our remaining schedule.

    If it's not broke don't fix it. I'm happy with the play of Allen and I understand the team trying to see if Mundy ( a younger guy ) could eventually handle the job when, they had him in there for Troy.
    The answer is obvious, Mundy isn't the guy. Too bad Allen is in his 9th season because I would feel real comfortable him being the replacement at safety.

    Unless Troy is 100% healed and at his 100% playing capacity, let him sit the bench. With all the cap issues we are facing and for the poor health Troy is having or injuries that he continues to have, the team should thank him for his years of service and give him his walking papers after the season. Or unless he wants to play for the league minimum. What we see of Troy and his injuries, will just be more of the same and a lot more often.

    On Troy's long-term status.....



    I would like to see him jump from player to Asst. Secondary Coach after this season.....Yeah, I know I'm being a bit premature on that, but he's smart enough to know that his playing days are probably behind him considering all the nagging injuries and inability to recover quickly. I know that's also just a fan talking, but I really feel he's smart enough to transfer his on-field knowledge to the clip board & headset.....He's already doing a lot of coaching on the sidelines if you watch him with the other secondary players. I think he would be a great asset to Coach LeBeau and the team......Keep him in the Burgh.
