    Buy Or Sell: Arthur Moats Would Be Steelers’ 2nd-Best OLB On Current Roster

    Topic Statement: Former player Arthur Moats would be the second-best outside linebacker on this roster.

    Explanation: Arthur Moats, recently retired, spent a good portion of his career with the Steelers, most recently playing for them in 2017. He originally signed a one-year contract before re-upping on a three-year deal, and he spent a mixture of that time starting, and producing when given the opportunity. T.J. Watt is obviously the teamís best outside linebacker, but while Bud Dupree is obviously viewed as the number two, the team even clearly has doubts about his future.

    This statement is considering Moats as he last played for the Steelers, circa 2017, and not Moats of today, in retirement, following an injury that ended his 2018 season before it began.

    Not buying.

    As disappointing as Bud has been, he still provides more in the speed and strength categories.

    The only area Moats might still be better in is “game smarts.”

    not buying
    i would give the slight edge to dupree, stats wise, even tho it would be interesting to see what moats numbers would be if he played the same amount of snaps as Dud
    this year will be a true decider if you are factoring in cost/production

    Moats was just a backup level player, so not buying

    Dupree is the better player.

    Dupree sucks, but Moats could not really play at all by the end of his time here, and he's a couple years removed even from THAT. So no to that.

    Moats in his first year here? Probably as good as Dupree. I wouldn't call that second-best on the team, though - that will probably go to one of the young guys if they get significant playing time.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    That's quite an indictment. After all, it's pretty hard to dethrone a guy that likes Hitler!

    If you're online long enough, you can't avoid running into people like that from time to time.

    Thank goodness he isn't here and has found his true calling somewhere else.

    You can pretty much insert any average OLB into the roster to be the 2nd best on the team.

    Here’s the thing:

    TAPES18N1 is a freaking Nazi. Like 100%. He loved Hitler. But... until he exposed that awful, awful secret, he was actually funny & added a lot to the board.

    Dodens Grav was oppositional & argumentative with every post he made. Every. Single. Post.


    SUMMATION:
    TAPES18N1 is that supermodel girlfriend who bought you tickets to football games. But then, she cheated on you... with you dad.

    Dodens Grav is that girl who you took on one date, and the entire time, she complained about everything. Then, she leaves you 5 derision-laced voicemails every day wondering why you are avoiding her.

    I may be the most clueless person in the world, but can someone fill me in here? I don't think I've ever been absent from this place for too long, except a couple months while I was trying to avoid learning the result of the Seahawks-Patriots Super Bowl - but I never heard about anything like THAT. I must be completely dense, unless it happened in, like, the tailgating forum or something where I don't go very often.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    This is is a carry-over from Steelers Fever.

    Yep. I think I saw some of his posts before he checked out, but I never had the pleasure of a personal encounter with him that I can remember.

    Ahhhhhhh…...great memories. That place was awesome while it lasted.

    I will BUY. Reason: Because for this to happen the OLB corps has been completely decimated by injury and Moats has been called out of retirement. So probably, yes.

    I was there too until that place collapsed. The guy's name sounds vaguely familiar, but I really have no idea. Oh well.

    Scrotus

    “Scott Curtis” had basically insinuated that he’d rape Lady Steel, and I replied (for the first & only time) in a less-than-civil manner. Scrotus then promised me a “vacation from walking”.

    Well, it has been seven years... and he still hasn’t taken me on a vacation. I keep thinking he’ll carry me around on his back, like Yoda. Or, maybe we’ll visit a lazy river. Something along those lines... you know: a very relaxing (walk free) vacation.

    Moats couldn't surround a castle if he tried.
