The Pittsburgh Steelers OLB has proven he is a force to be reckoned with in just his third year in the league.

You don’t have to tell Pittsburgh Steelers fans how good T.J. Watt is. Trust me, they know. In just his third year in the league, Watt has become a force as a pass rusher, and is now in conversation for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

After winning the team Most Valuable Player award in 2019, Watt continues to rack up accolades along with a...

With Ben Roethlisberger coming off elbow surgery and neither backup grabbing the reigns in 2019, some project the Steelers to take a quarterback early in the draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season has now been over for a few weeks, so it’s time to get into the off-season mindset. Although free agency comes first on the calendar before the 2020 NFL Draft, the NFL Combine will occur before either of them. With that said, it might be nice to have an idea...

The Pittsburgh Steelers need to embrace the NFL's not-so-secret to success

The Pittsburgh Steelers have never really had a dominant, uber-productive tight end in their employ. They only need to watch this weekend's Championship Games to witness two in action.

This weekend's Championship Games highlighted two of the league’s best tight ends presently in the NFL. Kansas City Chiefs Travis Kelce and San Francisco Forty Niners George Kittle are dominant pass catchers that create instant mismatches the moment they step on the field. The full impact of their abilities...

The Pittsburgh Steelers ILB chimes in on comments made by Chiefs LB Frank Clark on Titans RB Derrick Henry.

The AFC Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans got some extra juice this week when Chiefs linebacker Frank Clark said the following about Titans running back Derrick Henry, “He’s not hard to hit, he’s just a big guy...I don’t see no difficulty in tackling him.”

Last week, before Henry ran through the...

BTSC’s Jeff Hartman and Dave Schofield pick this weekend’s NFL playoff games both against the spread and over/under point totals

It’s a sad Sunday in the NFL. It will be the last time in the 2019 season in which multiple NFL games will be played on the same day. Rather than mourn the near end of another season, it will be one last Sunday of six hours of football which hopefully brings some quality television. It will also be a nice change to...

At Mike Tomlin’s end of the year press conference, he said his football team was relatively healthy heading into the offseason. He even stated there weren’t any known surgeries on the schedule for players.

There are four teams remaining in the NFL playoffs from the 2019 season, and the field will be narrowed to the two teams representing their conference in the Super Bowl after the two games on Sunday. It’s sad to think we only have one day remaining from the 2019 season in which multiple NFL games will be...

Bud Dupree’s offseason was short-lived as he starts preparing to make serious money in 2020

The Pittsburgh Steelers pass rusher is set to make some serious cash, one way or another, in 2020.

There was a time when we here at BTSC called Bud Dupree, Bud ‘The Dud’. Dud referred to the fact Dupree, as a first round pick out of Kentucky, never lived up to the hype. In fact, some were referring to him being a draft day bust as he never even came close to sniffing double digit sacks.

Then in 2019, after the Steelers picked up his 5th year option on...

Did the Steelers deserve to make the playoffs? Based on how the Titans have looked as the sixth seed, no way.

The question “Do the Steelers deserve to make the playoffs?” was asked time and time again over the final weeks of the 2019 regular season, as Pittsburgh looked more and more like the football version of Weekend At Bernie’s,” with the defense playing the roles of Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman.

In other words, the offense—led...
