My two cents on the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers offseason

My ramblings about the Steelers 2017 offseason.

I was originally going to name this article “Random Thoughts from a Left-handed Steelers Fan,” but then I realized, by revealing I’m a lefty, no coach would ever let me start at quarterback.

I also concluded a title like that would tread dangerously close to Bryan Anthony Davis’ “Random Thoughts From a Black and Gold Mind” series, and you might think I was stealing his premise.

I am.

However, I only plan on doing this once, with...

Antonio Brown explains why he was wearing Panthers helmet

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown freaked out his fans on Wednesday when he posted a curious Snapchat of himself wearing a Carolina Panthers helmet. We guessed there was likely some simple explanation for Brown’s post, as he is a happy member of the Steelers. Rest assured, Brown indeed explained on Thursday why he was wearing the wrong team’s helmet, via his Twitter account. https://t.co/Hnk9VKKJMS — Antonio Brown (@AB84) June 22, 2017 There we have it. Brown was just...

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Round 1: No. 2 Tom Brady vs No. 15 Aaron Rodgers

This time around in our look at which player most burns the beans on the grill of Steeler Nation, BTSC brings you the battle of the quarterbacks. Will it be a perrennial tormentor or a Super Bowl vanquisher?

Let’s take a look.

Joshua Dobbs Already Ahead Of Learning Curve

Arguably the one thing about Pittsburgh Steelers rookie fourth-round draft pick Joshua Dobbs that we felt pretty comfortable would not be much of a worry would be his ability to learn the offense. As we head toward training camp, however, it seems that his learning curve hasn’t been as steep...

Antonio Brown takes advantage of longest day of the year with late night training session

Steelers WR Antonio Brown gets some late night work in to prepare for the 2017 regular season.

You don’t go from a 6th round draft pick to the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL without hard work and dedication. In fact, in regards to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, few can come close to even outworking him.

Whether it is Brown’s ridiculous workouts on his Snapchat stories, or the tales of him staying after practice to catch well over 200 passes on a jugs machine,...

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin’ Round 1 Results: No. 1 Burfict vs No. 16 Wallace

The results for the first matchup are in. If you are surprised, then I want to sell you real estate.

BTSC is searching for the ultimate recipient of the hatred of Steeler Nation. As expected, Vontaze Burfict is the overwheming vote getter over former Steeler and current Raven Mike Wallace. People on the comment board were furious that a handful of people actually voted for Wallace. I was even accused of voting for Wallace to keep it close. We had a visit from a non trolling Ravens fan that...

The 2016 Steelers offense was better in the red zone than you think

There are several moments for the Steelers in the red zone in 2016 that stick out in our minds for all the wrong reasons. But a deeper look shows they mostly did exactly what they should have done inside their opponents’ 20-yard line: pick up yards, run down the clock and, of course, score points.

You’re probably aware of a statement that has become so ubiquitous that the only thing missing is for it to be captured in a meme: the Steelers’ offense is bad in the red zone.

Between the...

Le’Veon Bell long-term contract “bar” with Steelers not set nearly as high as many believe

Despite other reports, the odds Le’Veon Bell expects mind-blowing numbers from the Steelers are a bit off, in my opinion.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have until July 17th, not the 15th which falls on a weekend, to get a long-term contract done with All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell. If they fail to do so, Bell has two options: Sign his franchise tag to play one year for $12 million dollars, or to hold out.

Most are speculating the Steelers will get a deal done with Bell before the deadline,...

Pittsburgh Steelers Players Most Likely to Be Cut Before 2017 Season

Though training camp is more than a month away and teams aren't required to reduce their rosters to 53 players until September, that doesn't mean the 90 men who make up the current Pittsburgh Steelers lineup have reason to feel confident that their job security isn't in jeopardy.

It's an unpleasant but inevitable reality that nearly half of of the Steelers' present players will be released before the start of Week 1. Though they all will be working to avoid such a fate this fall, the...

Las Vegas puts odds on how many games Ben Roethlisberger will start for the Steelers in 2017

Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t played a full 16-game regular season in a long time, and Las Vegas puts the odds on that happening in 2017.

When it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers offense, Ben Roethlisberger is the straw which stirs the drink. As great as Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant are, they are merely average without Big Ben under center.

The problem has been the Steelers have had to deal without Roethlisberger for extended periods of time the last few seasons. In fact,...

BTSC is looking to establish the most-despised NFL player according to our readers. We start off with a dirty Bengal and a former Steeler “one-trick pony” turned purple.

And so we begin our search for the villain of all villains. Who will be ultimately be the Voldemort, the Gargamel, the Hans Gruber to Steeler Nation? Over the next few weeks, BTSC will host our own tourney of tyranny and your vote counts.

A look at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back depth

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a tolerable running game last season, claiming the 14th ranked rushing offense in the NFL. But no Steeler wants to be ranked 14th in any category. Le’Veon Bell led the Steelers with 1,268 rushing yards in 2016, despite missing the first four games of the season because of a suspension after failing a drug test. Steelers fans are constantly question the maturity of Le’Veon Bell, wondering what would happen if he were to fail another drug test. Bell would be...

This is the beginning of the end of Sammie Coates

It seems that since being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015, Sammie Coates has continued to get worse instead of better. In two seasons, Sammie Coates has averaged a 46% catch rate in the NFL. Considering he only caught one of two passes in 2015, he’s really only had a 42.9% reception rate.
