He pushed the LG back and the LG stepped on Winston's foot.

going back to the subject, NO ONE'S arguing how good of a STAR he is... but no, he is NOT a superstar..

last year was his "coming out" party, and this year, he needs to prove it if he's a SUPERSTAR.. ..

These are the kind of conversations that keep me off of the webzone until training camp. This is splitting hairs man. Star, superstar who gives a damn. Buckner gets the job done, he's a legit double digit sack guy from the interior. He does need to become more consistent, but his top end play stacks up against everyone, except DOnald.

I ran the numbers and he does qualify as a Superstar with 3 points to spare.
With 2 ER threats to deal with, IMO, Buck is going to light it up BIG time.

They'll still double team him but nowhere nearly as much as in the past.

Man. I hope they can get his deal signed, sealed and delivered by the start of the season.

YES.. AGREE !!

... and when he lights it up this year, then he can be call a SUPERSTAR.. ..

.. no other excuses for him this year, right??

well, unless both FORD and BOSA are bust.
This dude is a beast... now that we have Bosa and Ford? if Armstead or Solomon step up in development, holy s**t... Buckner one on one with guards? Good luck

Superstar⁉️⁉️⁉️ GTFOH‼️‼️‼️ WTF IS a "superstar"⁉️⁉️⁉️ Stop this crap trying to put any player in some superlative hole to try and make him better or just as good as someone else. The players success on the field speaks for itself. And, sometimes, the success of his team will be a further indication of his play. Now, for you fans who want to know what he is or where he fits, look at DeFo's get off and what he does when he's double teamed

I agree completely. Buckner had a really good season but one good year doesn't make a superstar. Unfortunately, we live in an era where everything is awesome, stupendous, unbelievable, the greatest, etc. To be called a superstar a player needs to have several seasons where he is a standout that makes the pro bowl each year. He needs to be THE MAN. He has the potential to become one but he isn't there yet.

How many is 'several' to you? Is three enough to be called a superstar? Or do you mean like 5+ seasons?

I agree that fans use their favorite players for a dopamine rush. People toss around words like "superstar" and "elite" for dramatic effect -- it makes them feel good about their team. But it happens with so much frequency -- Buckner being a prime example -- that they have little meaning anymore.

It's okay for Buckner to just be very good and not anything more than that. That's okay and I'll take it. He doesn't impact the game like Miller, Mack, prime A. Smith, Watt, etc. That's fine.

If you can use "superstar" and "elite" on more than 4-5 guys at any position group it takes away from the true upper echelon guys.
