Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

The Tribune Democrat, Johnstown, PA - Steelers will start rookie at safety

If they were to let him go do you think we'd be interested? Would he be willing to come back?

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

[SARCASM] Kind of hard to believe that the one of the greatest defensive players that Greg Williams ever let go is going to ride the pines.[/SARCASM]

If he can get ST to play like last year then we should pursue him. Hire him as a Big Buddy volunteer or something.

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

It sounds as though the Steelers have just been waiting for the right opportunity to get A. Smith into the lineup. A player dosen't usually lose his starting job because of injury espically when he's healthy enough to return. It looks as though Clark will have to play his way back onto the field.

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

I certainly believe it would help us to have Clark back! Either way, I don't look for a repeat performance of our defense next year!

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

What is his contract for with the Pittsburg? Canuck?

Is he likely to be released or just kept as high quality backup?

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

Maybe the Steelers cut him, or perhaps since he appears (according to the article) to be a good influence on their young safety, the Steelers will decide that keeping a solid young veteran player who improves the overalll play of your team is worth paying just a little extra for.

Naw... that's just silly.

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

I would bring him back, I think that would not only help our defensive backfield but S.T.'s play would improve as well. I'm not sure if he's gonna get released or not though.

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

Hmmm, we could re sign/hire him as a player-coach. His title would be Assistant-Associate-Def.Backs-Safetys Coach/ Coordinator and V.P. of Sean Taylors progression and placement for impact of beheadings.

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

i would bring him back in a new york minute. but all the big egos couldn't do that, for that would be admitting a mistake

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

Letting Clark go did not cripple the team. It certainly didn't help but he isn't Ronnie Lott. I heard an analyst say something that makes a lot of sense. When a secondary is struggling, the first place he looks is the defensive line. Lack of pressure from the front seven is a big reason why the secondary has looked so poor.

I would rather have Vincent than Clark. Vincent is more skilled.

Re: Ryan Clark has lost starting job in Pittsburgh

Vincent is also 36487 years old. for some reason, Clark just was a good fit for this defense. and no, he wouldn't be confused for Lott, but was very productive here on a pretty good defense

Who hasn't been torched in our secondary?

One of the things that everyone said about Clark was that he brought intangibles to the locker room. Vincent does the same thing. Plus, Vincent was picked up in the middle of the season, he would improve with some extra time.
