    Good things to hear. If what I've been hearing about Bush is true, hates opponents, has an edge, vocal, pushed to be better than his dad. Could change the narrative about the defense. Most notably thing to me besides TJ saying he will be better because he has a year under his belt was seeing Butler working the outside backers. Not sure how much he was involved when it was Porter's job.

    Watt doesn't seem to be as concerned about Bud as the rest of us. Somebody better fill him in on the concept that Bud is a bust. Good soundbite Thorn, thanks for sharing!

    Bud is only a bust because of his first round status. Well maybe if he was a second round pick too. No you're right, given his measurables he's a bust.

    I still have hope for Bud. I don't think he is as bad as he is being made out to be. I think it is fair for people to argue his value considering where he was drafted. For me, I'm over that argument and am now just hoping he pans out. At what point am I willing to give up on him or look for a better value, I don't have an answer for that as of now.

    Bud would be a great #3 linebacker & I would be estatic if that becomes the truth. Just not at 9.2 mil.
    Hopefully Watt & Bush get him biting like a mean dog, not barking on social media like us posters.

    If Bush is as good as we hope for him to be, along with nelson+haden+edmunds playing well, then it really doesn't matter how bad bud is lol

    I pine for the great years of Harrison & Woodley, Lloyd & Greene.
    If our outside linebackers are going to drop back mostly, then I want four d-lineman.

    Lets hope that Ola Adeniyi gets some playing time and can put the weak Dupree on the sidelines where he belongs. Watt is praising his efforts.

    I will take anybody that can turn the corner over on the right side to complement Watt.

    This also made me think of Gildon & Peezy. I miss those days.

    I think you could add Farrior and Foote to that list, however they weren't asked to do what we now are asking of LB's.

    I wouldn't mind seeing ILB Devin Bush rush often up the middle...

    I'd like to see them use the alignment for the wide 9 with the base 3 DL and Bud in a two point stance far to the side pointed at the QB then have Bush or Barron casually walk up to the gap between Tuitt and Dupree. Force the LT to decide whether to kick out and defend Buds bullrush or hang tight and try to get Bush/Barron and Bud at one time. Not to mention slowing Heyward and Watt from the otherside.

    You know Thorn058, your on to something there. If the Steelers could perfect that technique, we are gonna be soooo dominant. We used to do that during the Greene, Kirkland, Brown, & Lloyd era. Remember the Ravens did it to the Browns in the last game during the critical drive that decided our playoff fate. Browns marched down the field & couldn't muster another yard after that scheme was enacted. We do have the athletes to pull that off. Our CBs & safeties have to be legit or it can't work...

    See, there is a good point. I believe we have the athletes to field a good to great defense. I believe it still falls on coaching and scheme. For some reason we are still trying to put the shapes in the wrong holes!
