Spence will probably get a lot of action tonight...

Hope that doesnt leave him off the final roster because i think hes still on the ascent. Would suck if we discarded him over a short term injury then see him starting in Buffalo next year.

he could start the season on the PUP and allow Brandon Johnson and/or Adrian Robinson to make the team now...

Nope...PUP is for players injured pre-camp, not during camp.

LB is going from a strength to a concern real quick.

Only a concern because the talent behind the proven talent is unknown. The Steelers have players, question is, can they play? Like what I see in Spence and Robinson. Worilds is a one trick pony so far.

I never saw LB as a strength anyways.

big concern going forward. Worilds is tremendously average, IMO. I really hope carter can play, because if not, we are in deep doo doo.

Too some degree I agree about LB not being strength however I think Worilds is better than he gets credit for. He was a team leader in QB pressures last season. That is what he is suppose to do in this defense.

Think about this--if LB is not a strength and we have a concern why the h3ll are we playing the 3-4 that requires LB depth and the position to be a strength?

because it works? The other team has good players too ovi. Its coming down to situational football and we have been pretty damn good in points allowed with this scheme. Not going to look up numbers, just going off memory which is sure to be wrong.

I hope some of you guys are right about worilds because I have seen nothing from him. The OLB also has to sent the edge and turn plays inside in this defense and worilds is awful in this regard from what I have seen.

Sly is garbage...

I'd rather give his spot to Adrian Robinson, who IMHO, is the next DEEBO!!
