    Other/ Edmonds. Just watch.

    Honorable mention: Tuitt.

    They are coddling Dupree, switching sides, dangling the 5th year option. They drafted Watt and he is already head and shoulders the better player then Dupree. Hope the off injured, ghost injured Bud can put it "All Together". At least he is better then Jarvis Jones but that's not saying much. He has been a disappointment so far.

    True, and hopefully Burnett has enough left in the tank to be significant upgrade over Mitchell in the short term. Bostic is an upgrade over Spence, but both free agent additions have to stay healthy.

    The defense got pushed around too often last season and wore down in many games. The first loss to the Jaguars was an example of that. They actually did a hell of a job against Fournette for three quarters, but they couldn't stop him in the fourth.

    Weren’t most of his big runs and most big runs against our defense come from the outside zones and off tackle runs? I don’t remember very many going through the 1 or the 2. Like Butler said when the Steelers Defense was great it had 2 sure tackling safeties. Sorry but I don’t know if we even had 1 last year. People doing their jobs and being in the right spot makes a huge difference. Also let’s not forget the second time around Sean Spence was starting ILB also.

    They had Shazier for both of those games. I was referring to the regular season loss to the Jaguars, not the playoff game. The Jags ran all over the Steelers all day in the playoff game.

    The only regular-season loss Shazier didn't play in was the game against the Patriots.
