As the dust begins to settle after the Steelers utterly embarrassing exit from the NFL playoffs at the hands of the Baker Mayfield led Browns, there are decisions that the franchise has to make heading into the offseason.
Pittsburgh has had a nearly perfect slate of five games to start its 2020 NFL campaign. The team is currently leading the AFC North with a 5-0 record and is the only club with a 5-0 record in the AFC alongside its next opponent, the Titans. The Steelers have won three out of their five games by more than one possession, Ben Roethlisberger has led a terrific offense and the defense is one of the very best in the NFL.
The 2019 season however, was a strange one for the Steelers as it could be seen as both a win and a loss. After opening up against the defending champions New England Patriots and getting absolutely blown away, they then went into week two and lost their future hall of fame quarterback for the season due to an elbow injury.
What a rollercoaster of a week it’s been for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team fell to 0-2 after being defeated by the Seattle Seahawks at home, losing starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the process. Mason Rudolph, meanwhile, proved to a solid replacement for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
For a franchise that prides itself upon being steady and without drama, the 2018 version of the Pittsburgh Steelers was far from the norm.
Ben Roethlisberger’s Steelers faced off against Kurt Warner’s underdog Cardinals in a match up for the ages. This for me ranks as one of the very best Super Bowls, filled with interesting narratives, wonderful plays and a tremendous finish. This review will take a step back to February 1st 2009 and address what could have been for the plucky Cards.
The AFC North is one of the NFL's most interesting divisions this offseason. The Browns, Steelers, Bengals and Ravens all have big decisions to make.
The best wide receiver in football, who turns 31 this July, is due to hit the market and, as you can imagine, there will be numerous suitors.
That’s 6 of the last 15 Super Bowls having a QB on a rookie deal starting. Now it doesn’t look quite so straight forward. This is because with a quarterback on a rookie deal teams can surround their young stats with 5-star talent.
Just how good can he be?
What does the upcoming season hold for the Steelers?
