    That dude is a BAD MAN.

    May not be as athletically gifted as Bush, but you have to love his lumber laying abilities.

    Spillane has very good tackling form.

    Great backup. Why not start bush and Spillane next year together?

    Good eye. I noticed Gilbert was out there most of that last drive once the Titans got into Pittsburgh territory, but those were mostly passing situations. Spillane was in there earlier in the drive, which was good to see.

    He is a better run stopper than Bush he made a lot of nice tackles against a beast of a RB ...

    "Next man up", finally pays off.
    Mondeaux looks like a beast as well.

    Strength and nerve to take on that Sherman tank. Spillane plays old school ball like his partner in crime, VW.

    Looked like a shoulder to me after the play didn't catch his return myself so if he did right on. That play was solid and had he been a little lower would've been epic. Hahahahaha he's a thumper and sure tackler.

    Not taking anything away from Spillane on that stop, but the guy who wears 90 was there as well, and was in that same spot a lot today. The scheme for Henry was brilliant.

    If he continues like this that is likely the future. Vince is still playing high level, but at that age one season to the next can really show in drop off. Seems crazy, but how many guys have we seen that with.

    Spillane looked good out there. He plays with a chip, I like!

    No one really was worried about 41 against the run.... I'm worried about him having to try and cover the better TEs and RBs out of the backfield. Been Steeler Kryptonite for years.

    Other than D.J.'s nicked up ankle and Spillane's shoulder, that was it on the injury front, no?
