Eric Ebron excited to see “silky smooth” Pat Freiermuth get started with the Steelers

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers second round pick has impressed Eric Ebron so far this offseason.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have never been a team known for their dominating tight ends. They’ve never had a Rob Gronkowski or Tony Gonzalez type player. Sure, Heath Miller was phenomenal, but he wasn’t the athlete of those other tight ends. With that said, the Steelers are hoping their latest addition to the tight end room is going to make the group a more...

How a Tennessee quarterback became the future of the Steelers offensive line

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

As trades in the NFL occur, it turns from one player into another, into another, into another…

In case you didn’t know, I love tracing back how the Steelers were able to land a certain player based on the previous moves which put them, or the draft pick used to select them, into their hands. Whether it be connecting Santonio Holmes to Diontae Johnson, or Keyaron Fox to James Conner, it’s a fun little exercise in diving into the rabbit hole to see...

Are miserable Steelers’ fans really fans of the Steelers?

If nothing the Steelers do is right or gives you any joy, do you even like them?

Chances are you know at least one. Even if it’s not someone you know personally, there’s that person who has to comment on every article or social media post who acts like nothing more than a Browns fan in disguise.

Nothing is right.

The sky is always falling.

There is no hope.

I’m sure every fan base has them, but being a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers I see...

It makes perfect sense Ben Roethlisberger will do things he wants in Matt Canada’s offense

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Did you really think Matt Canada would come in and force Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to adopt an entirely new offensive philosophy? I mean, get real.

People use the term “clickbait” a great deal in expressing their displeasure over particular articles. For example, when I wrote that Kendrick Green, the Steelers newest third-round draft choice, could actually go on to become the greatest center in franchise history, at least one person...

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

BTSC’s random thought renegade is back with his bizarre look at the Steelers week that was.

BTSC continues their recap of the past week’s events for our readers. But where they went wrong was asking the one narcissistic writer that would put a bizarre spin on it to do it. So let’s all take a look at a BAD week in the Burgh together.

Would you rather the Steelers sign Trai Turner or Malik Hooker?

One player fills a need but could there be a bigger issue we don’t know about?

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been busy bees lately, bringing in plenty of veteran players for free agency visits. However, none of these visits have resulted in contracts yet. This begs the question whether the Steelers are trying to sign players right now or simply having a plan ready in the event of an injury. Perhaps Kevin Colbert and company just want to know...

Both Devin Bush and Zach Banner will return to the lineup in 2021, but which will have a bigger impact this year?

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost several players to injury throughout the 2020 season. Players like Bud Dupree have gone to new teams for the upcoming season, but two players who tore ACLs in their knees will return and be expected to have big roles with the team in 2021.

Those players would be inside linebacker Devin Bush and offensive tackle Zach...

How often do you find yourself longing for three yards and a cloud of dust?

Well, if I just described you in the previous statements, you should absolutely love the Pittsburgh Steelers new offensive line coach, Adrian Klemm.
