  1. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    agree, as in if they let dupree go and signed Houston as well as bringing in all the players they did, it would have been a MAJOR improvement. Instead, colbert is still trying to prove he didn't waste RD1 pick as usual...

    unless Houston gets hurt and misses several games, I expect his stats to far surpass dupree. That isn't a lateral move, but was a possible risk in that Houston is now better suited for DE 4-3 as his coverage might not be as good as it once was. Still, out of everything that happened this offseason, keeping dupree at that price and not signing Houston was a 10 on the fail scale for me. Houston would have been a major improvement and also a mentor for Watt and the others. Colbert failed on that. how about getting pressure late in games with 4 players and see how that goes? Stats are deceptive, 2nd in the league means nothing when you can't stop a good team when you need to. Getting 30 garbage type sacks means nothing to me. Get consistent pressure with 4, and the D can be legit. Until then, prepare to fail (eventually)
  3. you're not the only 1 that sees it as this. I don't think the other players get much time in the rotation when the regular season is here until dupree either gets hurt or just doesn't improve and they give up on him.

    so what does this leave him with, 2 legit sack stats and then the rest were gifts of sorts? Gildon had a variety of moves, dupree doesn't. Speed or nothing say it all, year 5 in the nfl and will this change? When will it change? I gave up a few years ago but others still have hope. Oh well, wait until the coaches finally have enough and others get more time in the rotation.

    also add that there are many of those less athletic players that have more football IQ and countermoves in the pass rush. I have been one of the harshest dupree critics and won't change my view until he plays to what is expected. Until then, he is way over drafted, overpaid and a wasted RD1 pick again by colbert. Some of this bandwidth on dupree criticism should be mailed to colbert since it's his fault anyways.
  6. Trade Ideas

    I doubt artie has trade value at all, and dupree is way overpaid, so he stays. another example of colbert that's all, nothing new in recent years that's for sure.
  7. sutton vs burns shouldn't occur, as burns would have to reinvent to compete. Bush vs Baron is another I don't understand since williams should be the one on the sidelines while these 2 start. I would say that Adeyini possibly finding his way into the rotation at the expense of dupree would be the one I am waiting to transpire . I doubt Loa gets a fair chance in trying camp to become the starter, but if by mid season bud is still like he was last year, then that could change.

    he did this vs the browns wk1 vs UDFA rookie, and to me that was telling. If dupree was legit, he would have schooled the rookie, instead the rookie kept the 4th year vet irrelevant . If he had a variety of moves etc, this wouldn't occur at all. I have only seen him get off the snap decently a few times. He usually is slow off the snap - and that is a fail in the NFL

    this. NO way he starts unless dupree gets hurt AND Ola has quite a productive series of games.
  10. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    I missed that link where he blamed missed calls for his lower stats. Do you mind putting the link here, it could be a good laugh I would prefer this but I can't see it happening. With dupree getting paid so much, how would they allow Adeyini to start so early unless injury make the decision? If Adeyini really does well in preseason then he might get into a rotation thats about it though. rooney paid dupree he plays - nothing we can do about it. If he has a good year, then he gets a better deal somewhere else. If he is suppressed , lacks stats, then he stays here for a few more years with more of the same productivity That is probably, and not the way to handle OLB . They need to get another legit starter opposite Watt.
  11. Trade Ideas

    I doubt he makes the team, but it will be something to observe if he rebounds and has a decent career. It just hasn't worked out here for him, but he will get another chance on another team. Maybe he will be a ST ace, nothing wrong with that, but colbert's RD1 pick needs to play CB in a legit manner and it's not happening .

  13. Trade Ideas

    and will you add your avatar to the trade now or wait after camp is over
  14. Bucs cut DT Gerald McCoy

    The colts have cap space, have they considered? They signed Houston and if they add McCoy, their DL would have improved at least on paper.
  15. Trade Ideas

    this is what I was thinking but for some reason I have more hope for the new players than burns mainly after his terrible 2018 season, I just saw too much that was intolerable, hence the want to move on more than keep. The FO made a mistake, ok, lets move on. Big deal, every FO makes mistakes. The problem is that if he costs the team a game or 2, it makes the idea of keeping him a regret that could have been prevented based on his 2018 season. How do you know burns can turn into something? Maybe he is better than other #5 cbs, maybe he needs a new team and scheme anyways, but wait and see. I don't know if it will kill the team if he is on the roster, I don't know the inner workings of the team. If many vets disapprove of him, yet he plays and costs the team games, that in itself could cause a divided locker room . If he is a ST ace and has work ethic AND the rest of the team is pulling for him, then that could be an asset so long he is a decent #5 CB if/when he plays. We don't know what is going on there, but I know that I don't think a CB comparable to his 2018 season will help the team on defense and that could be a reason to see him cut/traded. Colbert telling the press burns has confidence issues also ruined any trade value he might have had. It could actually affect burns chances to sign with other teams, limiting his options if he is released . What did colbert ever say about jarvis ? I can't remember but I also though Jarvis was the worst RD1 colbert pick in recent years.
