Got a lot of questions about rookie outside linebacker Bud Dupree’s first ever NFL game, so I went back to the tape to break it down for you guys. A couple flashes here and there, but overall Dupree suffered plenty of typical rookie struggles against the New England Patriots, some…

Get your hands on ‘em. That was the plea from the fans. The message from the players. And largely, the Pittsburgh Steelers attempted that Thursday night. After opening up in a Cover Three shell, the Steelers adjusted and played the New England Patriots close at the line the rest of…
