BTSC takes five burning questions regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers and labels them as fact or fiction.

There’s always so much to talk about when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the inquiries surrounding the black-and-gold are definitely ever-evolving, especially this week with the guessing going on more than anything with little action going on. It seems like the musical selection that best fits this week’s Fact or Fiction could be the...

Every Steelers draft pick from the 2020 draft saw action in their rookie season in Pittsburgh.

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2020 draft class made history last season, even as one of the most storied franchises in the NFL. For the first time ever, every draft pick saw regular-season game action for the Steelers during the rookie season. Not only have the Steelers not had an entire draft class appear in at least one game at rookies, they have never had an entire...

My latest NFL Draft crush: Florida Tight End Kyle Pitts

Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

If I had one draft wish, it would be that the Steelers selected Florida tight end Kyle Pitts.

Admit it, when you first glanced at the “Kyle” part of my headline, your initial urge was to rush over to the comments section and/or your favorite social media platform and complain about Behind the Steel Curtain’s ongoing desire to see the Steelers draft a quarterback.

No, the Kyle that has caught my eye isn’t Florida quarterback Kyle Trask; it’s Florida...

NFL prospects start accepting offers to be present at the live 2021 NFL Draft

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Draft will be a public event for the first time since 2019, and several prospects plan on being there in person to hear their name called.

It is weird to say, but the NFL hasn’t had a live NFL Draft since 2019. Not that two years ago is a ridiculous amount of time, but the 2020 virtual draft was more than different. Many fans didn’t know what to expect for the 2021 NFL Draft. It was scheduled to be live in Cleveland, OH, and after the...

It is absolutely gorgeous outside right now, so I am not going to spend much time with a preamble. Off to get the deck furniture out from storage and maybe enjoy a cup of coffee in the sun before the rain sets in this afternoon...

Sadly, an era came to an end 6 years ago on this date, when Troy Polamalu retired....

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to start rebuilding their roster through the 2021 NFL Draft, but what positions they target is still up in the air.

With the salary cap dipping from $198.2 million dollars in 2020 to $183 million dollars in 2021, teams like the Steelers were forced to be more spectators...

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2021 NFL Draft on the horizon, it is worth going over what the Steelers organization should avoid during the three day event.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing for the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, and many in the fan base are enamored with what the organization should do when it is their turn to pick during the three day event.

But what about what the Steelers shouldn’t do? What about the aspects of the draft the Steelers should avoid at all...

Predicting the positions the Steelers will select in the 2021 draft

It’s not about which exact player or in which round, but what positions will the Steelers draft.

On Tuesday’s episode of the Scho Bro Show podcast, the question was posed as to what positions the Steelers would select in the upcoming 2021 NFL draft. The discussion was not about which players, or determining which round each position would go, it was simply looking at what positions for Steelers would take.

Of course, it is merely speculation and basically...

The Steelers were never going to trade for Sam Darnold with Ben Roethlisberger on the roster

Photo by Joe Sargent/Getty Images

The Steelers may one day acquire a former high draft pick to be their next quarterback. But it’s not going to be this year or any year in which Ben Roethlisberger is still on the roster.

For the second-straight offseason, the Steelers sat idly by and watched an available quarterback with a tremendous pedigree go to another team—and for a bargain of a price.

Almost a full calendar year after former number-one pick Jameis Winston signed a cheap “prove...

Could the Steelers be interested in trading up for Justin Fields?

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

It appears the Steelers have a lot of interest in the Ohio State QB.

As we approach the NFL Draft more stories, clips, and inside analysis comes out and better helps in predicting where prospects will go. A couple of those storylines directly tie the Pittsburgh to Ohio State quarterback, Justin Fields. As well as, suggest he is much lower on the teams draft boards than originally expected. To put it simply, there’s both a will and a way.

Do the Steelers need more than 8 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft?

Would trading back in the draft to gain additional picks be a good idea for the Steelers, or are they fine with the number of picks they have?

It’s all hypothetical.

Every possible trade. Every mock draft. Every player ranking. All of these things are merely hypotheticals as we inch closer and closer to the 2021 NFL Draft.

Some people don’t like dealing with hypotheticals, and therefore ignore mock drafts and draft talk altogether...

The Steelers safeties are the backbone of the Steelers defense.

This is a Terrell Edmunds and Minkah Fitzpatrick film room. But mostly we are going to be watching Terrell Edmunds. During those plays feel free to look at Minkah Fitzpatrick being left alone and intentionally avoided. It’s how he spends most of his time on the football field, so we’ll spend more effort showing what Terrell Edmunds adds to the pair, and how the two of them combined make...
