Sucks how? As a safety, as a special teams player? What do you expect from your 4th-5th safety?

At the bottom of your depth chart that player has to be a very good special teams player, Golden was a captain of special teams, he could play all the units, he was the up back on punts, he threw two option passes for 69 yards both first downs. What in all of that sucks?

I remember a game against Carolina where Golden really helped seal the win because he was one of the gunners and ran down the field on a punt. It was Thomas and Golden that were down there in a hurry, Shmarko hit the return guy and forced the fumble and Golden scooped up the football and ran into the end zone for the TD. What in that sucked?

Golden unfortunately is not able to cover Gronk and gets burned and is forever cursed by some Steelers fans, as if Sean Davis or Troy Polamalu could do any better?

Sorry, but losing Golden on special teams makes this team worse not better. Now if they draft say a Natrell Jamerson in round 5 than all is forgiven, he is my favorite special teams player in the whole draft.

He most definitely sucks as a safety. And the sorry thing is that he wasn’t the 4th/5th safety. For most of last season, he was the 3rd safety...hell, wasn’t that long ago he was a starter. He quickly played himself out of those roles. And it wasn’t because he couldn’t cover Gronkowski...he couldn’t, but he also couldn’t cover most JAGs.
With all due respect, I’m sorry, but I don’t see the ST stud that you do. Being a ST captain is more likely about being available on each unit, rather than ability. And while I give him credit for the fake punts, that’s more about film study than playmaking. Scooping a fumble is great, but that’s an opportunity after someone else makes the play. Again, good on him for finishing. There is nothing about those three plays that screams ST demon.
Improving the back side of your roster can go a long way towards improving your team, and I’d like to give the Steelers credit for attempting to do that in this case, but I look at the recent re-signings of Toussaint and McCullers, and have to think this one is about a guy that doesn’t bring enough to the field to justify his payday.
