Bench Mitchell and play Cam Sutton. He can’t be any worse.

Mitchell ain't ever getting benched. Unless he breaks something or tears something.

Sure looks to me like if PIT brings back Haden - and I believe they will - then Mitchell has to be a cap casualty.

But that asshole will probably take a huge pay cut so they can bring him back.

Gay should never ever see the field in front of Cam.

A smart safety with hashes to hashes speed that can diagnose formations and react as plays unfold.
With ball skills and ability to at least knock down a deep pass here and there.

Mitchell has not even shown smarter as he has gotten older.
Otherwise it would have helped him mask his deficiencies.

His bad angles on run plays.
And celebrating tackles after long runs add to his shortcomings.

A round #1 or #2 FS would be huge.
With ILB / OLB and as another one of out top three picks.

I'm good with 3 of first 4 picks being defense.

I agree zeke and believe this is Gay's last season in Pittsburgh... Sutton coming off the IR and being a rookie is why Gay is even still active on the roster. Sutton has already proven his on field prowess IMO. Buh-Bye Gay...

Safety and ILB are their priority.

I believe he's referring to this season/now. Eventually they'll have to address Mitchell's 'shortcomings' as detrimental to their winning formula. Maybe it will be money that finally gets rid of Mitchell.

What do we do about the playoffs? Mitchell can cause an early out.

Regardless, Mitchell is going to start and play in the postseason. Book it.

This is a painful realization to come to, but I think you're right.

I just hope this secondary doesn’t cost us a chance at #7. It would also be good to see more man coverage.

I would sign Jairus Byrd to a 2-3 year deal and dump Michell

We should draft two safeties.

Sean Davis is a bad football player. Probably been our worst player on D this season.
