Steelers Fact or Fiction: ‘AB’solutely all about the guy we should no longer talk about edition

Photo by Al Bello/ A BTSC author takes six bold statements surrounding Antonio Brown and the current state of the Steelers and labels them as Fact or Fiction. I know, I know. We need to stop talking about this guy. But former Steeler Antonio Brown just cannot stay out of the news and BTSC is not doing it’s job if they stay quiet on it. After appearing on 93.7 (The Fan) last week and apologizing to Ben Roethlisberger again on social media this week, it seems like Brown is lobbying for a return to Pittsburgh. There are so many questions that have surfaced from this. One rogue BTSC writer...

Steelers’ Mike Tomlin expects Ben Roethlisberger to be ready for start of 2020 season

Steelers’ Mike Tomlin expects Ben Roethlisberger to be ready for start of 2020 season

The 2019 NFL campaign was not kind to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. First, Roethlisberger put forth a rather nightmarish outing in a 33-3 Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots, and the following week, the veteran suffered what ended up being a season-ending elbow injury in a defeat at the hands of the […] The post Steelers’ Mike Tomlin expects Ben Roethlisberger to be ready for start of 2020 season appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Watch the worst take of all hot takes regarding Ben Roethlisberger

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ When you think you’ve heard the dumbest comments ever, someone says something like this about Ben Roethlisberger. I get it. It is the slow season for the National Football League. Post Super Bowl and pre-NFL Free Agency can crawl along like a snail, and because of this many outlets have to try and find unique twists/takes on regurgitated content to seem “fresh”. We all have to do it, including this website, but some take it to new extremes almost every year. Whether it is Ian Rapoport spouting off about Ben Roethlisberger leaving the team years ago, or now...
Has the “What have you done for me lately” mentality taken over Steelers’ Nation?

Has the “What have you done for me lately” mentality taken over Steelers’ Nation?

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Does one year of subpar performance out shadow multiple seasons of production? “JuJu Smith-Schuster isn’t a number one receiver.” “James Conner is not the answer at running back.” “Ben Roethlisberger is done. We need his contract off the books.” “Stephon Tuitt can’t stay healthy so we should be looking for his replacement.” “The Steelers have no choice but to sign Bud Dupree at all costs.” First and foremost, I’m not saying that any of these statements aren’t necessarily true. There is some truth to everything being said above. Whether...

Ben Roethlisberger’s elbow injury may be much worse than we thought

A recent report suggests that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger may have had Tommy John surgery on his injured elbow. Here’s why that’s bad news. The 2019 season was a nightmare for Steelers fans. After boasting one of the best offenses over the past five years, Pittsburgh put up one dud performance after another with Mason […] Ben Roethlisberger’s elbow injury may be much worse than we thought - Still Curtain - Still Curtain - A Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

One of the most pressing questions was dealing with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his injury. More Colbert: 'We don't think Ben is near (where Rivers and Eli Manning are) yet. We don't think he's at the end of the road.'— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) February 13,...

Pittsburgh Steelers GM speaks out on Ben Roethlisberger’s rehab

Ben Roethlisberger has been the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise quarterback for a very long time. However, 2019 saw the franchise attempt to win without him, as Roethlisberger got hurt in the second game of the year. The Steelers held up pretty nicely without the star quarterback, but you could easily argue they would have made the […] The post Pittsburgh Steelers GM speaks out on Ben Roethlisberger’s rehab appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Ben Roethlisberger makes first public appearance this offseason, and his beard steals the show

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers QB took in a WVU basketball game, but his beard is what everyone is talking about. The offseason cloud has officially covered the entire National Football League, and outside of rumors and report, news is scarce until the new league year begins in March. The same can be said about news regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fans are awaiting the 21st of February to hear of Ben Roethlisberger’s elbow rehabilitation, and are debating the pros and cons of a particular wide receivers coach who could be hired any day now. Yes, the...
The Pittsburgh Steelers need a ‘Plan B’ for the upcoming 2020 season

The Pittsburgh Steelers need a ‘Plan B’ for the upcoming 2020 season

Photo by Joe Sargent/ The Pittsburgh Steelers need a Plan B in the unlikely scenario that Ben Roethlisberger isn't able to return in 2020. Could Phillip Rivers be the solution? I want to make something very clear. I hate talking about worst case scenarios. Why even put bad thoughts out into the universe; to allow negativity to invade our consciousness? With that being said, there is something I feel compelled to make known. The Pittsburgh Steelers absolutely can not go into next season with Mason Rudolph and Duck Hodges as their back up QBs! There is no excuse for a repeat of last...

In an interview last week with 93.7 The Fan, Brown gave what could be considered an apology to the Steelers. He listed out several people in which he did not act properly including head coach Mike Tomlin, General Manager Kevin Colbert, and quarterback Ben...

Antonio Brown had mostly bashed Ben Roethlisberger since leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it appears he has had a change of heart again.

Both Philip Rivers and Dan Fouts proved that a franchise quarterback guarantees a team nothing

Both Philip Rivers and Dan Fouts proved that a franchise quarterback guarantees a team nothing

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports It might be true that a football team needs a franchise quarterback in-order to succeed, but as both Philip Rivers and Dan Fouts proved with the Chargers, it guarantees nothing. “Does Philip Rivers make sense for the Steelers?” That might have been the title and premise of this article if I didn’t think it was absurd thanks to Pittsburgh having both quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his $33 million price tag for 2020. It would also be absurd even without Big Ben, given the $25 million in dead cap money the team would be saddled with even if he...
