Not anymore. They went with an inferior local product in Dominique Foxworth. A foolish decision, IMO. I agree with your assessment of where he is now, but not so much about his rookie season. People forget that in that Colts playoff game, he made two CRUCIAL plays following Big Ben's tackle of Harper. He broke up two Manning passes in the end zone in a row (almost intercepted one) that would have been bigger daggers through the heart than a Harper TD.I remember when McFadden was said like a 4-letter word his first year in Pit. Playing safety at FSU didn't prepare him well for the receivers that burned him crispy in '05. The Steelers pass def was the main reason they dropped 5 en route to that superbowl. Then a one and done next season. But over the last 2 years I think he has become a lock-down corner. Townsend got beat out by McFadden. He might even get better than Ike Taylor in short order. He has career momentum that another team is going to appreciate. The Steeler's pass defense ranked 2 in the NFL last year...Mark my words, Bryant will move on and line up on top receivers every week and progress his career. He's in his prime now, in a contract year. BoomStick-William Gay will step up in Pittsburgh, and McFadden's gonna be cashing big money checks from a team he's hurt in the past. I say he stays AFC and probably goes Ravens. Just a thought.
