Have you seen Robert Golden play defense?

Well, in defense of Golden, he did play rather well two years ago when he was filling in for Will Allen. I like him as a core special teams player, a captain, and as a backup safety. To me he is like a good backup QB, he can come in and play well when the need arises for a game or two, but you don't want him to be a long term or full time starter.

Also, I don't think he (Mitchell) ruptured the Achilles, just strained it, I don't think he is out for the season as much as some fans would wish it to be so. I admit he is a weakness in the secondary but putting Golden and/or Wilcox may not improve the situation, we will have to see.

I don't know if Mitchell will return even at the level he left. Even just a strained achilles is challenging to get back from. Remember Mitchell has lost a good deal of his speed on the back end already. I think Wilcox may be interchangeable with Will Gay the rest of the way. I do not believe Golden is the answer even temporarily. Mitchell was infuriating but Golden is worse IMO. FWIW, love to see if Sutton gets any play time going forward.

We had 71 defensive snaps vs Detroit.

Davis - 70
Burns - 70
Haden - 69
Hilton - 43
Mitchell - 38

Golden - 33
Gay - 20
Wilcox - 1

We will most likely see Golden.
I too would like to see more of Wilcox and hope he will be an upgrade over Mitchell for 2018, until a 1st or 2nd round S moves in.
A bad Mitchell injury in no way good for the Steelers as much as I also agree he is a weak link. It just puts new pieces into a defense that has played well and puts our #3 and #4 options on the field, even if we think they MAY be better.

I hope Shazpussy/Tubmonster works out

Looks like we will be looking for a FS for sure now in the draft.
Problem is that this draft sucks at FS.
