    I'm going with Watt just because he will be fresh but heck if Butler can find a dream package to get Bud, Deebo and Watt all on the field at once then I would do it.

    I say Watt because he's going to play initially as a situational pass rusher. Watt will supplant Harrison as the starter as the season progresses and he will have more opportunities.

    Silverback... let's not let the 1st preseason game get into our heads, good or bad. JH92 will still reign supreme. Great start by the rook though!!!

    As for team leads in sacks by the end of the year. Heyward kills it...

    This is when we need the mad scientist's student to go back and remember what he was taught. Scheme, to the defense's strengths. Our front seven...has all the making of being the best and a complete front.

    In general, this would be the logical thought. But, I'm thinking Watt will see more early playing time than a normal rookie just to keep James fresh come playoffs.

    Having a fresh James and a more experienced Watt seems like a nice combo when the flurries fly.

    Cameron Heyward or Stephon Tuitt if Heyward gets hurt.

    My point isn't who leads the team in sacks, I don't expect Harrison or Watt to lead the team. My point is Watt is backing up Harrison, that's why it will be interesting to see who has more sacks between the two of them.

    I'm not so sure about that, I think about mid-season Watt playing time will increase he might be more effective.

    I voted for Watt, but I think it will by something like a 5-4 tally

    If Watt gets around 6-8 sacks, this defense will be on its way.

    Between Harrison and Watt?


    Way too early for me. Way too many hypotheticals right now. Ask me this by the third preseason game.

    Watt.
    6 for him and 5 for James.

    I answered JH92 because I think he will be more of a pass rushing specialist coming in to spell TJ90. OTOH, I'm just as excited about Watt's sack potential as his batted passes stat. Had one the first game and probably got some tips from older brother. Any disruption is a good disruption...

    James Harrison, I believe Watt will see more playing time so it will be close.

    Bud Dupree should lead the Steelers in sacks.

    I obviously love Watt, but I feel Dupree will be a 12-sack guy, with Watt putting up a respectable 8-10.
