    They need Tomlin out of the defensive calls. Unfortunately Butler cannot do it alone and coach the OLBer's. Why he is coaching them AND not just being the defensive coordinator (cough cough) Maybe Teryl Austin as the D coordinator after the season. Probably not.

    Devon Bush I feel has a 2 part issue. Between the ears and still nursing/worrying about the knee. Mental mistakes.

    Spilaine has a spot on this team but to say that he is better then Bush in certain situations does not bode well. Or Shobert for that matter.

    Thank goodness for Cam Heyward and TJ Watt. Highsmith is getting better. Maulet is a baller as well as Mondeax.

    Hope to get Tuitt back after the bye.

    The safety's and inside linebackers struggling as well as an inexperienced D Line sans Heyward is the story. Hope they can clean up mistakes. Tackle somebody!

    That explains my questions Sunday as to why I kept seeing Spillane on 3rd and long.

    I wonder why we have changed so much from Week 1 where we only blitzed a grand total of 2 times.

    Now they are running a defensive set that blitzes 57% of the time. I wonder if all these Blitzes are the reason the run defense has just gone to sh*t? This would explain why we are now seeing Minka and Edmunds trying to tackle RBs in the secondary all last week.

    I don't think there's possible that there's anything Spillane does better than Bush or Schobert. This seems like a coaches' pet kind of move.

    If there is, not sure why they invested so much draft capital in 93 and 55.

    Maddog every single thread you have started has two things. You link an article you read online be it Steeler Depot, PFF, yahoo, CBS sports, Bleacher Report or Behind the Steel Curtain. You never put any of your thoughts into it, it's always someone else's and the second part is a misleading title meant to stir controversy.

    Once done you sit back and say nobody on here wants to talk football when you haven't provided any of your own thoughts. Your 1st two post in this thread had nothing but you calling Butler hayseed. You don't say if you are for or against what was done, reasons why or even a solid original 100% Maddog78 thought. You want to talk football then bring it to table and stop trolling for kicks.

    Posting articles from Steeler sites is trolling?

    You're the one trolling here.

    I didn't say posting articles was trolling. There is nothing wrong with bringing those to the table. Especially when mixing your thoughts into the discussion.

    The trolling I'm referring to is that you start these threads offering nothing of yourself just the beliefs of others and then title the threads in such a way as to start controversy. You are looking for people to argue with you. You created this thread today and have the first two posts on it and didn't make known what your opinion was. I had to ask you and my response to your answer is lead with that. Look at Ck and Brice's responses they are offering their opinions. It's strange that we don't hear yours until the sixth or seventh response and it had to be asked for.

    This has been my beef with him. His posts aren’t meant to stimulate healthy discussion. They’re meant to cause fear and anxiety by reminding us that we are inferior as a team.

    example: someone posts something to the effect “defense played good last game”

    Maddog scours the internet for a story that is to the contrary. And he’s like “No, no, no wait a minute. Don’t get too happy cause we suck”

    On topic I'm not sure I buy Butler 's spin completely but it is in the team interest to keep Spillane engaged and upbeat considering the roster turnover that is looming at the end of the season and time and money spent on him already. I think a healthy line would have covered up Spillane's shortcomings as they did last season. I would rank he and Schobert pretty close in coverage but not the best communicators but better than Bush at play recognition maybe.

    Butler answered questions honestly. He gave the reasons why Spillane received playing time in some packages. Maybe Spillane is a better player in some of the sub packages than some of the other packages? I don't know because I don't witness practices, know defensive calls, watch extensive film, know the players as well as the coaches ect.

    People can believe what Butler stated or not. It appeared he answered the questions honestly.

    I remember a story Butler told about Timmons. The coaches realized that Timmons played faster or better without the green dot on his helmet. The coaches also realized that Dupree and Watt should switch OLB spots.

    I ...Myself believe what Butler is saying. I believe with Bush coming off injury, and now with His groin....Add Schoberts lack of time Here, and I think Butler is telling it How He sees it. Doesn't Mean How it will be all Year , or How He'll see it all Year, but How it is right Now.
