    Hey guys....it has been a LONG time. I stepped away from ALL sports in 2020 (personal reasons), but I am thinking about starting to watch football again. I miss cheering on my Steelers.

    I just glanced through the current roster and there are a lot of players I don't know. I think our defense has been good (correct?), but I see that Ben retired which means we are re-building at the QB spot...that can't be good.

    Can anyone give me a quick "catch-up" on the current status of the team? Are we expecting anything good this year without a QB?

    Appreciate the insight guys...

    You have missed 35,000 Tomlin sucks posts. Beyond that the standard is still the standard here.

    Since Ben is gone we have a very interesting season coming up. Your guess is as good as anyone's as to who will be under center when we open in Cincy. I'm thinking our new guy we got from Bears. Guessing you know we drafted what we all hope will be our next franchise QB.

    IMO the key to a decent season rest on the running game which means Najee Harris and our O-line. If we have trouble running the ball regardless who is under center we will get eaten for lunch. Now should we have a decent run game that takes a ton of pressure off Trub, Pickett or Mason.

    35,000? That's just from one guy!
    I think Trubisky will be adequate. Najee is really good, just needs some better blocking. TJ is a beast. Heyward is still really good....... I'm thinking 2nd in the division behind Bengals.

    Because of last year I give the 'gals the nod, they have made improvements as well. But now they have a target on their back and those many close games can easily go the other way. Not saying it will, but it's among season.

    Welcome back

    Ben stepped away from playing quarterback about the same time you went on pause so you didn’t miss much

    Tomlin hasn’t had a loosing season in 15 straight years and for some reason half of the people want to fire him when this is mentioned

    Tomlin hasn’t won a playoff game in 5 years and this makes almost the other half want to fire him

    Offensive line was horrible last year but they have made some additions

    Maybe it will achieve mediocre

    Run defense last year was horrible but they have made some additions

    Maybe it will achieve mediocre

    We have two first round draft picks playing on defense Bush and Edmunds who can’t even achieve mediocrity

    We have a quarterback let go by two teams a quarterback taken in the first round with midget hands and a quarterback who was the best chance for starter when Ben retired and now he’s fighting for a backup job

    Running back Harris is very good

    TE Freiermuth has potential to be good

    Everything else is posted above

    And 4 sets of brothers are currently on the team. I don't know if any other NFL team has even come close to this.

    The Davis, Edmunds, Heyward, and Watt Brothers are all currently on the roster.

    I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but the Steelers are so dumb that they now sign players to contracts without giving them a physical first.

    Actually that's against NFL policy. I have no idea how they determine the legitimacy of a physical, especially after he had failed one recently, but he had to have one and the results are sent to the league. Falsified info could be fines, lost draft picks, and even suspensions.

    Stick around cause in about 7 years we will still hear the infamous "But he's never had a losing season" comments.

    On my phone at least if I don’t check for a day only the last few alerts seem to show up

    Be thankful you don’t send me email

    A friend from grade school sent me a nice hello email

    I responded the other day

    It was 14 months after he sent his

    He joked pony express could have got there quicker

    This message board is basically my only contact with the outside world I do no social media and little email

    There are no NFL physical requirements to sign a contract.

    There is a requirement to pass a physical before being allowed to begin preseason from the CBA. This is why there is no contact during OTAs.

    NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement
    Article 39
    Players’ Rights To Medical Care and Treatment

    Section 8
    Standard Minimum Preseason Physical

    Each player will undergo the standardized minimum preseason physical examination and tests outlined in Appendix K, which will be conducted by the Club physician(s) as scheduled by the Club. A copy of the Preseason Physical exam results will be provided to the player via the player’s Electronic Medical Record. No Club may conduct its own individual testing for anabolic steroids and related substances or drugs of abuse or alcohol.

    I guess you are wrong again SteelerGlenn. SteelerGlen is wrong again... SteelerGlenn is wrong again. Hey that has a nice ring to it. :)

    Sounds like we are headed for a mediocre season?...good time to come back. Either way, I am looking forward to seeing my team play again. What about the draft this year?...anyone we are excited to see? I see they took a QB in the first round (that has not happened in a while). I did see the comment last night on NFL Network about the Steelers having (4) sets of brothers....that is crazy!
