If you’re not busy today, hop in your car and make the trip up the Turnpike to Western Pennsylvania.
On the heels of Sunday’s night’s embarrassing 39-26 loss to the Patriots, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has had enough. He’s calling for open try-outs today to try and patch up his beleaguered secondary.
You saw it for yourself on Sunday night. They were all lit up, including the great Troy Polamalu. Lucky for #43 that he fire-proofs his hair before games or they would have hosed him off in the second half.
Here’s a list of people who have already signed up for today’s open try-outs in Pittsburgh.
I know you’re laughing, but did you see William Gay’s performance on Sunday night vs. New England? This kid is more athletic, I think. And he could sing the National Anthem too, although my guess is most people in Pittsburgh don’t know the words.
Here’s another guy who has signed up for today’s try-outs. I say give him a fair shot…he can’t be much worse than what they already have.
Don’t laugh. As you can tell from his work on the piano, the dude is good with his hands.
Look, we all know Bryant McFadden stinks. Hell, T.J. Houshmandzadeh beat him for a touchdown this year. That tells you everything you need to know. So if McFadden needs replaced, how this candidate?
The only concern with him? He might get involved in a lot of blown coverages.
And finally, think about this candidate as a replacement for Ike Taylor. You probably wouldn’t notice much difference .
