Dionate Johnson will have to prove he can handle a full “load” as receiver and return man

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted a very versatile player in Diontae Johnson, but he will have to prove he can handle the workload at the NFL level. When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Diontae Johnson in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, they technically used one of the picks they received from the Oakland Raiders for Antonio Brown to select the dynamic Toledo receiver. Not only did they use the Raiders’ pick, but they drafted a player who is primarily compared to Brown as a receiver, route runner and return man. When Brown was drafted in the sixth round...

Ben Roethlisberger and JuJu Smith-Schuster ranked 6th by PFF regarding catchable target percentage

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Steelers’ QB/WR duo was one of the best in the NFL at this particular statistic in 2018. The Pittsburgh Steelers fan base is excited about the 2019 season, but are also a bit apprehensive when it comes to life without Antonio Brown. While mainstream media continues to suggest the loss of Le’Veon Bell, who didn’t play a snap in the NFL last season, will impact the team, losing Brown’s 15 touchdowns is a legitimate concern. Many are wondering if JuJu Smith-Schuster will be able to fill the shoes of Brown and be Roethlisberger’s top target...

Several former Steelers still looking for a team as training camp approaches

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ There are still one or two former players on the open market who deserve another shot in the NFL this year While the Pittsburgh Steelers will return to Latrobe for the start of training camp on July 25, there are still several members of the 2018 version of that group looking for a home this offseason. The names include a former first-round draft pick as well as a Super Bowl winner, but with just days to go until the last few teams begin training, their chances of making a roster in 2019 are looking increasingly slim.

It now seems fashionable to want to see the Steelers fail

Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports The Steelers may be a traditional powerhouse, but they’re one that hasn’t won a title in a long time. They’re perceived to be on the downturn, and that is why it’s so easy for national pundits to attack them at every opportunity. In case you haven’t noticed, the Steelers aren’t receiving a whole lot of love from the national pundits this offseason. That’s right, not many are predicting Pittsburgh will be much more than mediocre in 2019, with the average win-total sitting at around 9.5 or so. As for those national pundits, it seems they...

Pick Your Poison: What would be the ideal way for the Steelers to roll into camp? In style, or all business?

The Pittsburgh Steelers report to training camp this week, and it begs a question on how the team will show up to Saint Vincent College. The Pittsburgh Steelers make their annual trip to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA this week for 2019 training camp. Over the years players have made all sorts of entrances to camp. As shown in the image above, Brett Keisel would show up driving a tractor. James Harrison once drove a fire truck to the dorms. James Harrison also showed up in a smart car which he barely fit in one year. Antonio Brown showed up in a Rolls Royce with his signature on...

Could the Steelers’ defense finally provide some game-ending stops in 2019?

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports If this team has truly broken out from the recent mold, how will it translate to their success on the field? The 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers are doing their best to create the image they are not the typical Steelers team. Several big “personalities” are no longer in the locker room and camaraderie seems to be the point of emphasis. Analysts are doubting them, and the team wants nothing more than to fly under the radar. But if this team isn’t wanting to be the typical Steelers team, then are there things we fans associate with the Steelers which would...
