Bud Dupree will be playing tonight for a chance to play in the AFC Championship game next weekend, but people around Pittsburgh are still talking about his hit on Dolphins QB Matt Moore, last weekend for which he was fined 18k.
This week, a reporter asked teammate Ryan Shazier what makes Dupress so successful, his response was that Dupree is a “different species”, according to Steelers Depot’s Alex Kozora.
“People underestimate his closing speed,” Shazier said via Steelers.com. “There are a lot of guys on this team who are a lot faster than they look on film. When you just see him in person, it’s ridiculous. The only way to know how fast Bud is pretty much playing with him or going to the Combine and playing with him.”
“He’s a species man. He’s a huge person. Fast, guy who is really blessed with the talents and all the things he’s able to do.”
As I said earlier, I’m a big fan of the Cowboys and would love nothing less than to see a Cowboys vs. Steelers Super Bowl.
