    They may have thought that but they were never actually told that like Butler has been. Big difference.

    Yeah, Kevin Butler was the former placekicker for the Bears, and father of the punter we had last season.

    Frazier could make a lot of sense...

    Both Frazier and Tomlin were Dungy assistants...

    Frazier has a zone blitz background as an assistant under DC Jim Johnson at Philadelphia...

    As a side note, Frazier led the 85 Bears in INTs...playing in Buddy Ryan's 46 defense...

    And he also led the 2013 Minnesota Vikings to a 5-10-1 record and the 31st ranked defense. No Thanks!

    I would like Frazier. IMO Jim Johnson's defenses in Philly were always attacking and innovative. IMO, a fresh look from the outside would greatly benefit this defense which has gotten stale and predictable.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    Dee Dub is right. "Kevin" Butler will be the DC when the position is left vacant by LeBeau.

    1. Butler has turned down DC positions because he is next in line to take the reigns from LeBeau

    2. He has been promised the job for years now.

    3. I have a gut feeling.

    Six out of 9 seasons as a coach, Frazier's defense was in the bottom half of the league.

    No thanks.
