    Hope this was the move that will put us back into Super Bowl contention.

    This is a great start. Now VW can go to the bench. Now let’s find a OLB to at least split with Dupree
    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 agree, VW will hopefully only be in on running downs and Barron and Bush can be on the field the rest of the time.

    Is this the last season for VW? What a Bostic? No answers from me just more questions.
    BUT IMO. I see Barron as the replacement for Barnett possibly. He is a former safety.
    A hybrid vet guy. To run some different defenses. Need to contain the running QB's and RPO's. Will be interesting to see how the safety and ILB's work out this season.

    Duh...ya think. Some "fans" aren't happy unless they are unhappy. The glass is always half empty for them and they act like constant negativity is informed critical analysis

    Jachai Polite may have dropped..but maybe he'd be one to get in the fourth.

    VWill has become this whipping boy for the fans. Always a fan need,like waving a terrible towel. Vince Williams is still a valuable part of the team. He'll get his playing time because he is good a productive player but he can play less. A team needs good depth, there are 45 players.

    Vince Williams aka "The Whipping Boy" had 78 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, 8 tfl and 1 int for a touchdown in 2018. Pretty good numbers for a player the omniscient fanbase uniformly denounces.

    I'm not saying this to complain at all, but I'm still of the mindset where I don't really like the idea of taking an ILB in the 1st round and I'm really suspect of their value as a top 10 pick.

    That said, I like Bush's. He fills a need. He looks like he should be a solid starter. It's just more a beef I have with the position. It would be similar in my mind to taking a RB in the top 10. And we had to give up a 2nd and 3rd to do it. If I'm giving up that much and moving that high, there better be a QB that I love that I'm going after or some game changing talent that's going to enable my D to get to the QB.

    And this isn't a knock on Bush, but I'd expect going up this high, I better be getting talent like Big Ben, Aaron Donald, JJ Watt, etc.
