    It's possible. He looked good out there.
    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

    Not ready to go that far but I'm all for it.
    That INT on the 2 pt conversion was a beautiful thing to watch.
    I'd love to see him get some first half action this week.

    Film Room: Ulysees Gilbert III Takes Charge In NFL Debut

    By Nick Farabaugh
    Posted on August 15, 2019

    Going into the first preseason game I was looking forward to seeing Ulysees GIlbert IIIís performance. On the two days I was at camp this year I saw, he was absolutely flying around the field and was around the ball every single play it seemed like. And even though he really only played against third-stringers this game, he had a phenomenal showing that I was expecting to see based off of his college tape and what I saw this Summer.

    In fact, in all phases Gilbert showed off just about every trait that got him drafted by the Steelers in the first place, starting with his fantastic range and fluid hips.

    This is a simple screen WR screen, we see it all the time during the season, but Gilbertís range and ability to turn and fully accelerate is fantastic here. He ran a 4.51 at Akronís pro day and that speed and sideline-to-sideline range are shown off fully here. However, there is something to be said about how quickly he can flip his hips and accelerate right away. That is something I more so look for with running backs, but it does matter for linebackers as well when it pertains to range. This play just shows off all aspects of Gilbertís athleticism and proves he is a great athlete for the ILB position.

    I was shocked to see that the Steelers would trust a LB to be all by his lonesome in a one-on-one situation as designed purely schematically. It allows them to mix and match their coverages a lot more and show more looks. Matt Eberflus in Indianapolis did this a few times with Darius Leonard last year, and it was a breath of fresh air in the Steelers defense to see how well he played this. His footwork here is what DB coaches call Ďmotor mirroringí since he has a wide base and simple steps back to keep leverage. He does a great job of staying square and reacting and mirroring immediately after the cut inside. Then, it is all about his explosiveness and speed to close in and make this pick. Gilbert was always good in coverage, and this is another example of that. Great mirroring and a great job to be isolated and still make the play.

    Then, to finish it off, he shows off his blitzing ability to just completely finish off this RB. The deke step to get the RB leaning off to his right and thus susceptible to a move is a great job by Gilbert. That deke allows him to essentially make the RB not be square to him, and as he crosses his face, he hits him with a sweet swim move. The RB leaned in and Gilbertís ability to bait him to do it is why he won this rep point blank.

    After a strong game against the Buccaneers, Gilbert III needs to see increased reps against second stringers and stiffer competition. It is the only way to see if he is truly something to mold and keep on the roster. The special teams ability to obvious, but if he can flash that he might be able to be a starting ILB at some point, the Steelers will have found a gem in the sixth round. Itís time to see what heís made of.

    "............absolutely flying around the field and was around the ball every single play........ "

    This, more than anything, will get UGIII on the roster and I predict will get on the field at some point this season. But I would like to see what his run defense is like as well. Having fast, quick LBs to defend the pass will have OCs set up with a power run game to counter. The Steelers have to find a way to stop that as well.

    ST will get him on the roster. If he shows he will fly around and make plays on special teams then he will get opportunities to get a helmet on game day, and maybe have a chance to play some snaps on D. For him it will all begin there.
