Actual has been 5-6. He's sniffing that 5th year option money. Sic 'em Bud.

The odds favor Dupree making it to 10 sacks– virtually every edge rusher selected in top 100 with his measurables has hit 10 sacks at least once.

Good point B2B. Even Joey P. found some uncontested sacks. Just like the blind squirrel. You can't beat Deebo in his prime overpowering the tackle and delivering some terrifying crunches on the QB. That was something to behold.

Porter may have fallen out of favor as a coach, but he was a pretty damn good olb on this team, and definitely a leader and tone setter on a team that won Lombardi number 5. Comparing him to a first round bust is recently biased and kind of insulting to the player.

Who fills that role as tone setter now? it was Deebo and JPeezy and Lloyd before that. I think the job is open.

Cam has been holding a leadership role, from much of what I've read, and as mentioned, Shazier could be a motivational speaker, but this is one of, if not the most offense-heavy Steelers team I can remember.

I expect Tuitt to step up as a leader this year, as well.

While Shazier's story is very motivational, he's very far from a great (or even good) speaker. If that's a path he decides to take in the future, he will, no doubt, have to dedicate himself to perfecting that skill. He should be up to it, though.

Rocky Bleier certainly grew into the role.

Shazier's presser contained some pretty golden moments.

It’s very possible...

If he decides to give 100% and stop half assing some plays.

Saying Dupree is a bust is a real stretch. Calling him Joey Porter is also a stretch.

I can see Cam stepping up into those shoes. I think he has the capability of coming up with a big play when its needed. I haventt noticed it with Dupree. But neither has shown the Porter or Joe Greene type of attitude to rally the troops and change the momentum of a game. Call it intimidation, smashmouth or the Steeler way, I dont think opponents feel like they are going to have a long afternoon when they play the Steelers anymore.

I think Dupree can be a double digit sack man but they have to move him around more.

If some of the reports that I admit are vague coming out of OTAs, if they are true and we do have more 4-3 looks this year, then why not move Dupree around the line? Why can't he line up inside at DT sometimes? Line up at DE? Stand up as an OLB, sure.

Never was onboard about keeping players on the left or right, be it our OLBs or our CBs. Remember last year, the Texans game? There you had Joe Haden not just staying on his left side of the field, but actually lining up on Nuk Hopkins regardless of whether he lined up on the left or right or the slot. And Burns had to move around as well, and the result was a pretty damn good game for the secondary.

It can only help the defense if Watts and Dupree are moved around and lined up in numerous spots.

Just so it's not Dookie. We had one of those.

Safety Morgan Burnett confirmed he did not take part in the first day of minicamp Tuesday because of injury. The veteran offseason acquisition downplayed the significance of the undisclosed injury, though, saying he “was fine.”

Jordan Dangerfield was taking first-team reps in Burnett's place during the first of three mandatory minicamp practices at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

Only three players on the roster have more NFL experience than Burnett, who spent his previous eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers.

Outside linebacker Bud Dupree said he took reps in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday but that he had aggravated a shoulder injury last week during organized team activities.

Hmm... hadn't heard anything about injuries till today. I guess it was bound to happen.

I think Aaron Jones has a better shot to get 10 sacks.

Dupy is injured before he's put on the pads. Another Mitchell, all mouth and little action. He'll be stealing that fifth year option money.
