:lol: I should be crying instead of laughing. There's an argument to be made that Dupree isn't much better than Za'darius Smith who the Ravens took about 4 rounds later....from the same school.

Here is the thing.

When I think a player is soft I say it. Dupree is not soft.

Dupree wants to be great so badly he self destructs at times...He will try to do too much...Run himself out of plays. Rush 12 yards past the quarterback...Take on a lead block get destroyed loosing the edge.

I wish Dupree was lazy
I wish Dupree was soft

I think Bud may be cursed. I think the Steelers are cursed drafting linebackers.

Bud lacks confidence...He is a guy who does the right things without being rewarded

Calling Bud a bust in this case is not an insult. I don't think he can work more. I don't think he can work/play harder. I don't think he can be a better Steelers player....I pray the light goes on. I don't think it will which is a shame.

BTW I don't blame Colbert (I would have taken Shane Ray) Dupree was the cleaner prospect when it came to character

Well, I don't think saying it's to early to tell and I think he has some upside is "really excited".

Others here are saying he's a bust.

Myself, I dunno and not ready to call him that. Yet.

But if others are correct that he's a bust then...

Tombert strikes again.

Let me also add the Steelers are so poorly coached at linebacker.

Porter and Jerry O would be gone ASAP

The defensive backs showed marked improvement in tackling form....So Lake is getting a pass.

Football is all about blocking and tackling something the Steelers have done very poorly this season

Football is a physical, emotional game. I think they are coached to lay people out, instead of wrapping up and tackling. Sometimes dumb players don't know when to wrap, and when to hit.

Would Kevin Greene have been the better choice?

You mean Mike Mitchell? The next guy he wraps up will be his first. Dudes good for a solid 2-3 missed tackles a game because he's always going for the knockout instead of just getting the guy down. A far shittier version of Ryan Clark.
