    I think I am with you: however, there might someone else who isn't ILB or in 1st round that is worth trading that far up...

    We have to be smart how we sell the farm to draft an impact player.
    ďIím so tired of LeíVeon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "Iím so tired of it. Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    I admit it looks dicey even being able to get Bush but it does depend on how much capital it takes to get up there. If somehow the Bucs were to pass on White, that would help.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    I think both Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins come off the board in the top 3 picks (desperate teams trade up toward the top of the draft for a shot at a potential QB in every recent draft). If that happens, then one of the top 3 elite pass rushers (Quinnen Williams, Nick Bosa, and Josh Allen) will be available at #5, and I doubt that Tampa would pass up a chance at a top prospect at a prime position like pass rusher to take an off-the-ball linebacker like Devin White.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    They want one they will have to spend some capital. If Bush is there at 9 that's where they have to go. I was hoping #20, #52, & 2020 3rd would get it but there will be competition..Real or otherwise at some point. It may take #20, #52, 2020 2nd to get there. You get Buf to throw back 4th #112 this year..Maybe it's worth it. If they feel he's that centerpiece..I'm in.

    I think we should sign "Terrible" Terry Tate, if for no other reason but to keep the locker room in check.



    Imagine if he'd caught Bell smokin' the ganja, or Brown FB Videoing the Tomlin in the locker room? BOOOOM! Those two guys would probably have delivered 2 Lombardi's by now, and hungry for more. Food 4 thought.
