I’m going to come clean with you, I hated William Gay. Not a mild dislike or a slight distaste for him, I hated the man. I hated that whenever a Steelers game was played, it seemed that on the big passing plays by the opposition, it was No. 22 on the receiving end, watching the receiver streak towards the end zone.
Mentioning William Gay to many a Steelers fan leads to sighs and serious questions over his ability as a NFL cornerback.
However, Gay appears to have largely improved from his poor performance in Superbowl XLV, where Aaron Rodgers showed up Gay and his colleagues in the Steelers secondary.
In fact, Gay has played better this season than in previous years, so maybe it’s time to stop hating the man and have a look at why we should forgive him for those past discrepancies in coverage.
