    This how Terrell needs to play like.



    I was scanning through some game films to see if I could spot his bad play and why.
    He's certainly capable of making some big plays as evidenced above.
    But I see some questionable defensive call and generally some blown assignments - like the CB releasing too early, or just bad reads...

    I have no intentions on excusing his miscues.
    I could rest easy bringing him back reasonably and let then fight it out in camp.

    Edmunds is asking for too much as well. He’s not the worst in the world, plenty of other FA CB’s on his level have gotten contracts.

    I'm saying it the front 6 guys are doing their jobs none of our safeties should lead the team in tackles. Schobert at least was second in the team in tackles. When rbs are getting that far downfield there are other problems in front of them.:cool:

    Did I miss something? I thought Edmunds played Polamalu's position of Strong Safety, not Cornerback.

    I could have sworn he was a Safety.

    Having some average guys is good

    With the salary cap you can’t pay an entire team of stars

    Pay fair market value and the Steelers are good at this

    I misspoke, I know he’s a safety. I’ve been advocating for them to get Mathieu over him. Him and Minkah would be a formidable duo.

    In the past, a safety lead the team in sacks, despite having Lloyd, Kirkland, Gildon, and others.

    It took him 4 years to become average. I hope they draft one. Mathieu is still in the cards and would make an immediate impact.

    No one wants him. What does that tell you. 4 years to become average. Time to replace, not resign.

    In 1997, Lake had 6 sacks to lead the team.
    (Team was still 6th in the league in sacks.)
    I remembered this from discussions where people lament that OLBs are bad if they don't reach 10+ sacks, even though plenty of good players haven't reached that milestone on a consistent basis.

    It wasn't in the past 20 years, but it was under Cowher.

    The article said the offer has been out there a while

    With the draft coming up I wonder if they told him to make up his mind

    For 2.5,Hell Ya...Best not great, he doesn't suck, Average player...Which makes it a great deal!

    It was the " first round pick, which DIDN'T make at it good deal"...You obviously are hoping for a lot better than average in the first round ..

    For this money, and how he plays .. It's not bad at all

    Ok from now on he is no longer a first round pick

    He technically is a FA signing now at a fair price

    Man I know he's not the best SS in the league, but I'd say he's at least average. 2.5 is almost backup money. I feel badly for him. I figured he'd get 4ish on a multi-year deal.

    That's a perfect signing imo. Very cheap on a 1 year prove it deal.
