    Watt had 13 sacks last year. 4 vs Cle. So even if he only had 9, it’s more than Dupree has ever had in a season. Watt had more his rookie year than Dupree has ever had in a season. Watt has the same number of sacks in 2 years as Dupree in 4. Same number of INTS and 5 more forced fumbles in half the time. And he’s only 12 tackles behind with 2 less seasons.

    The jump Watt made from season 1 to 2 was huge. If he improves that much between seasons 2 and 3 he’ll be a beast. Here’s hoping it happens.

    TJ’s arrow is pointing up. We all like what he’s done ( doing). He’s our one legit linebacker from last season.
    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.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. SO WHY DELAY THE INEVITABLE?

    Clearly Watt is benefitting from the beast on the other side.

    I didn’t notice that Gary Johnson, linebacker from Texas , went undrafted. Chiefs just signed him as a free agent. Tells me iurvFO is really sold on the guys we have already.

    Definition of Insanity: Butler actually said that 5th year, 1st round pick, Bust DuPree can "become a good player" & ""just a few minute things" to fix... Coach speak allowance noted... I find that insulting.

    Ray Fittipaldo: They believe it. I don't think it's coachspeak. That's why it's going to be so fascinating to see how the year develops for Dupree. Almost no one outside the organization seems to be as high on him as the people inside.

    Colbert wants to believe in the guys he drafted. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. He said the same things about JJ too in his last year.

    I don't recall him saying that about Jones. Do you have a link or is this something you think he should have said?
