Despite losing one star wide receiver for the entire season and possibly his former All-Pro running back for the first four games, Ben Roethlisberger said today that the Steelers offense can be “as good as we want to be.”

With the likes of Ben, Brown and Bell the Steelers offense is a force to be reckoned with. Outside of the killer B's, there is still lots of competition however. Here are the offensive camp battles to watch. The Steelers offense is the best in the league. This is, in my mind, irrefutable. We all know the mainstays of this unit - the killer B's. Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell have little to nothing to prove at training camp, they all have built their reputations as the reliable starters that a team with a seventh Super Bowl victory in their sites needs. This does not mean...

When his number was called last January, running back Fitzgerald Toussaint made the most of it with solid running and a huge splash play. He also may have given away the season with an ill-timed fumble, but all has been forgiven. Can he build on his solid play in 2016? Chances are, you remember the play: second down, four yards to go. Exactly ten minutes left in the game, with the Steelers clinging to a one-point lead over the Denver Broncos, from the Denver 34-yard line. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger takes the snap from shotgun, with fourth-string running back Fitzgerald Toussaint lined...

Although most of Pittsburgh's roster is set in stone, several players you've never heard of could steal the spotlight in Latrobe The Pittsburgh Steelers will report to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa. this Thursday, July 28th for training camp, where 90 players will compete for the opportunity to join Pittsburgh's final 53-man roster at the end of August. Of course, the vast majority of these slots have already been filled by default, as Landry Jones and Levi Norwood are unlikely to unseat Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown as the NFL's most potent one-two punch. Though the Steelers...
Field Gulls Jul 25, 2016
In a matchup between two of the NFL's top players, Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown faced off against Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman in Week 12 of last season. Brown was targeted 12 times by Ben Roethlisberger, catching six passes for 51 yards; the numbers were well below his season averages, as Brown led the NFL with 136 catches and added 1,834 yard with 10 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Sherman got his first interception of the season, plus an uncounted pick on a two-point conversion attempt. In coverage, Sherman played a mixture of outside zone coverage and man coverage in...

Some say the Steelers signal caller doesn't get the credit he deserves, but heading into the 2016 season Las Vegas has him as the second best odds to win the NFL MVP award. For years it has been a common narrative in the city of Pittsburgh. "Ben Roethlisberger never gets the credit he deserves." "Everyone is in love with Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers...what about Big Ben?!" I could go on, but those who are Steelers fans have known what I'm talking about for years now. Well, believe it or not, while quarterbacking this current juggernaut offense, Roethlisberger is getting more...

Colin Kaepernick is not guaranteed the starting job, but if he wins it, you can get some MVP odds. NFL teams have slowly begun the process of returning to action, with rookies on several teams arriving this week. The Green Bay Packers will have the first veterans reporting next Monday, July 25, and the Indianapolis Colts follow on July 26. Bovada is marking the return of football with updated MVP odds for 2016. Aaron Rodgers leads the way at 4/1, and considering he is getting Jordy Nelson back, it makes a lot of sense. Ben Roethlisberger is an interesting pick at 7/1, but the loss of...

It’s being reported by ESPN that Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy. Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell facing a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s drug policy, per @DanGrazianoESPN. It's over missed test.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 22, 2016 And when do the Chiefs play the Steelers? You got it: Week 4. No one - especially fantasy football players - wants to see Bell suspended but this would be a major blow for the Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger is still the key to the Steelers success and the...

After the tumultuous 2015 Steelers season, Mike Tomlin should certainly err on the side of caution this preseason. The Pittsburgh Steelers report to training camp in one week, and as the team, and organization, prepare for the 2016 season to officially begin, there is one facet of the team which is talked about more than any other. It isn't about Martavis Bryant's year-long suspension. Not the number of players, like Le'Veon Bell, David DeCastro or Markus Wheaton, all entering the final year of their current contracts. Nope, not about Ben Roethlisberger's window of success either. The main...

No Bryant? No problem; the Steelers will still air it out and make big plays down the field. The Path to 500 series continues this week as we take another look at the Pittsburgh passing game. Our last session in this series addressed the quick passing game of the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger's rhythm with his wide receivers to make short quick passes that were fast enough to break down defenses. Arguably the biggest story of the Pittsburgh Steelers' offseason came from the season-long suspension of Martavis Bryant. Bryant has become a wide receiver that is nationally recognized both for...

Pittsburgh is among the Super Bowl favorites, but what exactly needs to happen in order for the Steelers to win their seventh title this February? The Pittsburgh Steelers are among the favorites to win Super Bowl 51, according to Vegas Insider, who gave Pittsburgh 12/1 odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy for a league-leading seventh time. The Steelers finished 3rd in the NFL in total offense last season despite the fact the QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown played in just over 11 quarters of football together. Based on the prolific nature of Pittsburgh's offense,...

In a new feature at BTSC, we are breaking down the Steelers 90-man roster one player, one position, one day at a time. The conclusion of this feature will be the start of the 2016 season. Player: Landry Jones Position: QB School: Oklahoma Overview: Due to the multitude of injuries Ben Roethlisberger has faced over the years, the backup quarterback position is an important one for the Steelers because it is likely that player will have to appear in at least one game during the year. 2015 proved to be no exception as Roethlisberger missed all or part of seven games. After Michael Vick injured...
