In a countdown of the most prolific Steelers jerseys of all time, No. 55 comes in 7th place.

BTSC continues to rank the best numbers in team history on a standpoint of thriving over time throughout multiple players. It seems there are a few numbers which are always represented with quality play in Steelers lore. One BTSC author has wondered aloud “what is the most accomplished number in Steelers history?” Through player and jersey value rankings...

Predicting the Madden 21 ratings for the rest of the Steelers’ rookies

We now have an idea of how harsh, or fair, developers are being to rookies in Madden 21 after the release of ratings for quarterback and wide receivers.

Madden 21’s release is now a mere six weeks away from its August 21 release date (it’s incredible to think Madden’s developers will be able to fix Franchise mode and re-design the Washington _________ in time) and with it comes the obligatory ‘teaser’ campaign via the release of rookie ratings...

Ranking my four favorite non-Steelers NFL franchises

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Here’s a look at my four favorite non-Steelers NFL franchises.

If you’re anything like me, in addition to the Pittsburgh Steelers, you love all things NFL.

I’m sure you have a handful of teams you also enjoy watching besides the Steelers. Maybe you don’t enjoy them and respect them a much as the Steelers, but I doubt you would ever use a derogatory name to describe them, such as the Clowns, Ratbirds, Cheatriots, Bungals or even the Browns.

I have...

Podcast ‘Yeah, I said it’: The Steelers will surprise 31 NFL fan bases with success in 2020

In the latest episode of ‘Yeah, I said it’, we talk about some burning topics surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After missing the playoffs the past two NFL seasons, fan bases across the NFL landscape have written off the Pittsburgh Steelers as also rans. But with Ben Roethlisberger back from injury and a defense which ranks near the top of the league, those legions of fans in other cities like Baltimore, Boston, Kansas City, Houston, Los Angeles and all points in between are in for a...

Time to check on the latest news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers

It has been a one-of-a-kind offseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2020. Unable to attend most player pro days and participating in the NFL’s first virtual draft, the Steelers keep pushing forward toward a return to football activities. Just because the NFL has cancelled the 2020 Hall of Fame Game and cut the preseason to an undetermined amount of games...

There is always something to talk about when it comes to the black-and-gold!

Even though I’m finishing up my vacation, I still have to do my best to pull off the Friday Night Six Pack. While I have kept my responses to myself, I have read every comment the last several weeks and have really enjoyed getting to know members of our community even better. Hopefully I can keep coming up with engaging questions even as I stare at the ocean.

The rules are...

Report: Bud Dupree files grievance to be classified as a defensive end

It appears a deal is nowhere close as Dupree wants to be listed at another position to make more money.

In the wake of Buccaneers linebacker Shaq Barrett filling a grievance with the NFL to be listed as a defensive end rather than an outside linebacker, Steelers left outside linebacker, Bud Dupree has filed a similar grievance.

Ian Rapoport tweeted the Steelers defensive standout filed the grievance in hopes of making more money. Defensive Ends make $2...

The NFL’s Adam Schein doesn't think the Steelers are a complete team

The NFL.com writer’s list even included multiple division rivals

NFL.com analyst Adam Schein ranked his top 9 complete teams this past week end, and he failed to include the Pittsburgh Steelers in any of those spots. The only thing holding Pittsburgh back from being a complete team is the information on the true status of Ben Roethlisberger.

If Roethlisberger can play then this is one of the most loaded rosters Kevin Colbert ever gave him. This defense...

Every team in the AFC North views the Steelers as their biggest rival

Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images

The Steelers being the gold standard in the AFC North was something we already knew, but here’s the data to support it.

Last week, BTSC dove into looking at who the Steelers biggest rival was in 2020. In doing so, I made the statement each of the other AFC North teams saw the Steelers as their chief rival within the division and across the entire league. After compiling the data through SB Nation Reacts, my suspicions were confirmed as the Steelers...

The Steelers offensive plan for the 2020 season is coming together nicely

The Pittsburgh Steelers adhered to a well constructed plan this offseason to improve the offense which almost mirrored my own.

The last couple of post seasons have been pretty rough on Steelers Nation. Not only have our beloved Steelers missed the playoffs for two years in a row, but the Steelers have been faced with the unknown concerning some of their best offensive weapons due to injuries and mental instability. All the while, the Steelers window of...

Examining the Hall of Fame credentials for some of the Steelers’ younger players

One of the most exciting aspects of the current Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster is the young corps of starters the team has built.

Not only can this group of newcomers greatly improve the Steelers’ chances at a Super Bowl title in the near future, but they are also providing hope for the team post-Ben Roethlisberger. Even though some of the Steelers’ best players are...

Podcast: What trades or cheap additions could the Steelers explore before camp?

In the latest episode of “The Steelers Preview” show, we break down all the news you need to know surrounding the Black-and-Gold from the week that was in Steeler Nation.

The 2020 Steelers have a seemingly complete starting 22 going into training camp. However, depth in this generation of the NFL seems to be always an issue. With several reserve positions needing strengthening, the Steelers could entertain a free agent pickup or trade before the season starts. Who could be options for...

5 reasons why the Steelers could miss the postseason again in 2020

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

It’s not that any of these things are likely, but if the Steelers falter in 2020 it could possibly be due to one or more of these reasons.

Pittsburgh fans are expecting good things once their beloved Steelers take the field for the 2020 season. I even wrote a piece earlier this week about how the Steelers should be contenders this season. But what if the team comes up short again? What if fans are asking “why?” once more at season’s end? If—and...
