I did a radio spot with Greg Linelli today and he asked me about which position battle for the Steelers I am most looking forward to seeing - or at least something along those lines.
To me, I feel the cornerback position will be the most interesting.
Currently, Keenan Lewis is holding down the starting spot opposite Ike Taylor, with second-year players Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen pushing.
One of those three will also serve as the slot corner as well. Brown seems best suited for that position, but Allen's athleticism is hard to deny.
Lewis, however, played very well last season as the third corner and has much more experience than the other two.
Unless Dick LeBeau can come up with a way to get all three corners young corners on the field at the same time, somebody is going to be disappointed.
What position battle are you looking forward to?
@ Speaking of Linelli, he has long been one of the underrated and underutilized radio hosts in the Pittsburgh market.
Soon, he won't be.
Greg is moving on to greener pastures. Good luck to him.
