Less than 24 hours and the off season is officially over!

July 24th, 2018

This is a make or break year for this group of Steelers. The championship window on this team is closing and closing fast. Ben Roethlisberger is in the twilight of his Hall of Fame career, the offensive line is a year old and this looks to be Le’Veon Bell’s last season in Pittsburgh.

There is cause for optimism and this team has everything needed to make a Championship run.

Here are some things to look at and ask for 2018 camp:

  1. Who is playing Middle Linebacker?: Someone will have the unenviable task of filling in for Ryan Shazier. Shazier is a once in a lifetime talent and replacing him is impossible. Who will fill that hole?
  2. Wide Receiver Depth: Antonio Brown is clearly number 1, JuJu Smith-Schuster is clearly number 2, who will be number 3-5?
  3. Rebuilt Secondary: The secondary is younger, faster and more athletic, but is it better?
  4. Quarterback Chaos: That may be a little dramatic but the Joshua Dobbs stock market crashed pretty hard this year. Lauded as the next Dak Prescott and the heir apparent, he could be out of work by summer’s end. Mason Rudolph looks like the Ben Replacement of the future and the Steelers have good ol’ Landry Jones as Ben’s capable understudy. This is an interesting race to watch, because all bring something, but none bring everything.
  5. Life without Haley: Todd Haley was successful. It is hard to argue rationally against that. But he was also a complete disaster off the field and his personality led to his ouster. How will the offense respond?

Stay tuned and let’s find out together!
