Joe Haden does not know if he himself can be against the Seattle Seahawks on the field or not. But whether he is or not, he is glad to know that Sean Davis, of the Pittsburgh Steelers, will begin the free-safety, having missed the season opener against the New England Patriots because of an ankle sprain in the aftermath third game of preseason.
While Haden did not return to field training until Friday when he was fully engaged, he felt Davis & # 39; s presence there all week. "He was very, very vocal," he told reporters on Friday in the locker room via a video on the team's website. He is well out there, he knows the defense very well, he always feels good, just hearing his voice helps somehow because he knows what he's talking about. "
The Steelers started his post with First Year Security Kameron Kelly As an unoccupied free agent, he did not manage to remove the Dallas Cowboys from the training camp in 201
The lack of communication between Kelly and the second year Terrell Edmunds was one One of the biggest problems the team had in defense, and contributed to the big splash games that made the biggest difference in the game.
"We can not let guys run scott-free" he said, referring to three long touchdowns that the Patriots scored as the defense blasted cover. "If we have a body on a body, a man on a man, we are very hard to beat, but we can not beat ourselves."
"It's still a part of us that does not communicate," he continued. "As long as we have the same communication, I think we'll be fine, but that's the main thing."
In his turn, he believes that Davis's return will be an asset in the chain of communication that was missing on Sunday, like him He has been one of the main communicators in the defensive of the group in recent years and is the longest-serving member of the secondary school, spending time on the 53-man roster, of course, coupled with the design of a classmate Artie Burns .
While Davis has become a kind of whip boy for fans, some of whom * cough * Shane Mitchell * cough * believe that he is not even able to play football, the defenders are the Team ready to see him back on the field to contribute to a unit that seems to miss him against the Patriots He will be out on Sunday, so we'll see if he can make a difference – maybe even a splash.
