Before I opened the thread, my first thought was, "Why is this thread title in red?" Even after opening it. It took me a few seconds before it clicked.

This guy was a nice find in the seventh round. I remember when we got him, one of the biggest praises of him was how many tackles he had and a sense that he just got to the football. That's been the case the first two games this season. I don't know if he could start but he is dynamo on ST which is such a nice thing since ST has always been one of our weaker spots.

He's been an ace on special teams so far. It's good to see high level play on the ST unit. I don't think there was ever a time I was a fan where we had strong ST coverage (maybe not since the early 90's? But then there was that infamous Metcalf game... so no), so this has been a nice change

Tyler Matakevich, who Tomlin nicknamed Dirty Red.

I'm upset that I didnt give you that nickname first.

Very good special teams player but I'd be very surprised if he ever became more than a backup at ILB.

His intelligence and football instinct translates well to special teams...not really dealing with the opponent one on one most of the time.

His deficiencies in speed and strength get exposed as an ILB.

True but I think it was a solid draft pick even if he does become one of those Steve Tasker level ST aces

He has looked damn good on special teams that's for sure. He was flying around on special teams against the Vikings.
