This dude is a clown he didn’t support pitt all last season even when they were beating teams they weren’t supposed to be. Stephen A should stop calling himself a Steelers fan because he’s not. 8-8 and lost ab, L Bell, and Ben? Tomlin alone is enough to be loyal to Pitt. Smh

Well the Steelers were 8-8 with sooo much help from a preventable Tyler Boyd fumble, a few preventable Kyler Murray interceptions, a few preventable Phillip rivers mistakes, a few Jared goff interceptions, a missed vinateri FG, and Freddie kitchens being Freddie kitchens. That 6/8 wins that required a ton of help

Steelers are 1-3 (0-3 against starters) against Browns and Ravens last year, that needs to flip if they want to have a chance at winning that division Granted they didn't have Big Ben but still, gonna need to sweep both the teams

Ben Talbot

Why don't we wait through the free agency and the draft before we pass judgment? The Steelers have Bush, Watt, Fitzpatrick, Haden, Nelson, Heyward, Tuitt all coming back. Bush will only improve. Watt might not yet even be in his prime. Mr. Colbert will find the missing pieces on offense. This is a playoff team as long as the key players stay healthy. Even then, they have enough depth to remain substantial. Let's also wait and see how Ben's arm is before we write him off. He's a special quarterback who, after ten years, finally has a top-notch defense to back him up.

Awww Kellerman, you're such an asskisser. Mike Tomlin is the reason the Steelers will NEVER win another SB as long as he's HC. He stinks. Name one other NFL coach who lallygagged out onto the playing field and interfered with an opponent's kick return. (Should have been banned for life) Name one other HC in NFL history who would have benched James Harrison for practically an entire season without cause. Tomlin's clock management is terrible to the point where TV announcers are flipping out at the stupidity and he's got a unique bad habit of going on fourth down when up by 10 or more points and failing. Worst head coach ever. The Steelers could have won as many or even more games with a groundhog as head coach than Tomlin.

Rodney White
Rodney White 11 months ago
Look at the divisions they’re both in. I think it’s a realistic prediction. That the Cowboys will once again be in the postseason. I also think Pittsburgh may make it as a Wild Card with Ben coming back. I don’t care how terrible your team is, when Ben is your QB, you are a threat year in and year out. I think they both make it. But if I had to pick only 1 I think this is realistic. Good pick, Stephen A. I agree.

Rodney White yeah and it wont be mahomes again, so if lamar gets it then he gets the madden curse
Rodney White
Rodney White 11 months ago
TheBlazikenBro BOI that’ll either be Lamar or Mahomes. Madden is a video game company. They want the newest and the best of the next generation. And Lamar, Patrick and Watson are the 3 best. It’ll be 1 of them but I don’t think it’ll be Watson.

Rodney White
Rodney White 11 months ago
TheBlazikenBro BOI Ben is gonna do a good job of finding those guys and those results are gonna translate really well throughout the season. They won’t win the division. It’s Lamar’s division. But I think they will make it as a Wild Card.
TheBlazikenBro BOI
