With safety Ryan Clark still out with pain from a spleen issue during the Denver game, Die Hard Steel thinks it's time to bring back Chidi Iwouma for special teams purposes. His argument?:
Clark was a contributor on special teams as well. At this point, with no activity, how is he going to be in game-shape? Probably no more than Iwuoma, but Chidi has been cut and re-signed by the Steelers, the Patriots and the Rams in the last calendar year. It was surprising that he didn't make the Steelers roster, especially with the loss of special teams ace Sean Morey in the off-season. I would imagine he is smart enough to know to stay in shape, and since he likely has access to a television and a newspaper, I'll bet he heard about Sunday's disaster in Pittsburgh, and figured he could help.
We'll move on to another topic for the rest of the week, because we've heard what the coaches and players think and we've talked amongst ourselves already. In all those discussions, Chidi was never brought up.
I doubt any of us think he's truly the answer, but what do you guys think of Die Hard Steel's interesting thought about shutting down Clark for the year.
