    I'm not big on the off-season 'feel-good' stories other than it is a good thing that the player is putting in the effort.
    I'm not going to criticize it either as there are other stories that are not good at all.

    RE: Bush.
    I don't think I saw the same guy last year as I did that rookie season.
    As a survivor of torn ACL and MCL (though a QB) it is hard to overcome the 'ghosts' of that. One does make a cut a little less sharp because the fear of that searing season ending pain. It is about a year to physically overcome it, and about 6 months to mentally overcome it, so it seems.
    I saw Bush navigate traffic almost cautiously and take deeper angles of pursuit.
    I think once you played some game and get a good offseason, does help.

    In the end, the proof comes gameday.
    And, I would not have any issue with him having to fight for his roster sport. All players should have to look over their shoulder at potential replacements.

    I sure hope so. He looked extremely tentative last year. If he can't play fast and "reckless", he's useless to us.

    hopefully buddy johnson and genard avery can supplant a couple of guys at that position. UG3, spillane. maybe even bush if it doesn't get better. i have been hard on olsavsky and his coaching of this group, he as well better show something. how our backers attack a play has to get better. i hope with some of this coaching and DC change it will look different. our OLB play as well. these guys are great at pressure but very inconsistent against the run and setting the edge. :cool:

    I hope the Steelers field the best 2 ILBs on the roster.... regardless of how high they were drafted. Bush didn't look anywhere close to an actual NFL ILB last year.

    Good to see the confidence is back in his knee.

    He'll be faster and stronger by the start of the season.

    EDIT: I tore my Achilles 2 years ago and still haven't gotten back to playing sports. Completely heald but the concern is still there. So it's admirable how quick these guys comeback.

    There was way too much standing around outside and after the fact last year. Not sure that’s anything working out can address but let’s hope that’s corrected, like yesterday. We’re all hoping for it!

    He's undersized too, there are better options in the draft at ILB.

    It would help if the DL could stay healthy, Schobert sucked too last season, it wasn't just Bush at ILB.

    With both Tuitt and Tyson gone the Steelers were forced into a lot of nickel with only 2 DLs. Can't keep offensive lineman from blocking your LBs, if you only have 2 Defensive linemen on the field.

    Why didn't Bush stay with #10 out of college? He was pick #10, and his college number was #10, so it seems he would have wanted to keep that number.


    Also bring back the Turd!!

    First question is “does Pittsburgh have a weight room” if so he better find it. I seen better bodies on a Golo commercial. Now I understand why this guy hasn’t shed a block during his career and in my opinion has been a total Draft Bust!
