Could Rashaan Evans be a steal for the Steelers in the 2018 NFL Draft

Could Rashaan Evans be a steal for the Steelers in the 2018 NFL Draft

Could the Steelers find a future star by selecting Rashaan Evans of Alabama in the first round? Let the countdown begin towards the 2018 NFL Draft. I almost get the feeling that choosing a First round prospect is like getting that Prom Date right. The front office has been faced with a lot of burning questions lately leading into this year’s Draft; should they get an immediate replacement for Ryan Shazier, an heir to the quarterback throne after Ben Roethlisberger, or should they roll the dice and look for another Running Back beyond Le’Veon Bell? Ryan Shazier’s absence can still be...
The popularity of the NFL's annual schedule release shows the league still occupies the top spot in your heart

The popularity of the NFL's annual schedule release shows the league still occupies the top spot in your heart

You still love all things NFL, including its annual schedule unveiling. The NFL says “NFL Schedule Release Extravaganza!” and you say, “How high?” At least that’s how it felt last Thursday evening, when my brother texted me this: "Hey what are you up to today? Just a few hrs left to see who the steelers play and when this year." The lower-case steelers my brother was referring to were the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose 2018 regular season schedule, like the rest of the NFL’s, was made public on Thursday evening in a TV spectacle that might as well have culminated in a fireworks...
Report: Steelers exercise 5th year option on OLB Bud Dupree

Report: Steelers exercise 5th year option on OLB Bud Dupree

The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly picked up the 5th year option on OLB Bud Dupree. Among the NFL Draft talk, the Le’Veon Bell saga and Free Agency, there has been a lingering issue which hasn’t received much publicity. That would be the 5th year option for outside linebacker Bud Dupree. The Steelers brass has spoken about how they have to weigh their options, but they were anything but certain on whether they would pull the trigger on retaining Dupree after his rookie contract expired after the 2018 season. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the team is indeed picking...
Members of the Steelers remember actor, and die hard fan, Verne Troyer

Members of the Steelers remember actor, and die hard fan, Verne Troyer

Die Hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan Verne Troyer passed away Saturday, and members of the team posted their condolences on social media. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a global organization. Their fans are everywhere, and their fans aren’t just the every day folks who put their hard earned money in memorabilia and swag from the team. Several celebrities are die hard followers of the black-and-gold. One of those fans was none other than actor Verne Troyer. Most known for his role as Mini Me in the Austin Powers movies, when he wasn’t on the silver screen he was a regular at Steelers training...

James Harrison has “no problem with the Steelers”, and would return for reunions, if invited

James Harrison has “no problem with the Steelers”, and would return for reunions, if invited

The all-time Steelers sack leader opens up about his departure from Pittsburgh, and his feelings about the organization. When James Harrison called it a career, many who cover the Pittsburgh Steelers, and their global fan base, wondered what Harrison’s legacy would be with the Steelers? Fans forgave him for leaving in free agency and going to the Cincinnati Bengals, but when he was released and went to the New England Patriots at the end of 2017, it seemed as if it were more than just choosing a new home. It felt personal, and not just with the fan base. Harrison’s teammates ripped him...
Despite the Steelers’ pre-draft visits ending, news of meetings continues to leak

Despite the Steelers’ pre-draft visits ending, news of meetings continues to leak

Official Pre-Draft visits have concluded, but it doesn’t mean there isn’t still news coming out on that front. All NFL teams have concluded their official pre-draft visits with the 2018 NFL Draft just over a week away. As most know, each team is allowed 30 official visits, with the exceptions of players who grew up or attended school within a proximity of the NFL franchise. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, it has become clear the player the team reported visited, and the players who actually visited are two completely different things. Leighton Vander Esch came in unannounced on a...

2018 NFL Schedule to be released Thursday

One of the best days of the year is almost upon us! The last time Pittsburgh Steelers fans saw their favorite team on Heinz Field they were losing in stunning fashion to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Divisional Round. After watching Super Bowl 52 conclude, the offseason has been brutal. Images of the Jaguars running all over the defense. Missed opportunities at every turn. However, there is hope on the horizon. The 2018 NFL Draft is just over a week away, but the NFL will deliver a nice package to tide you over until then. The 2018 regular season schedule. Schedule news! The 2018...
James Harrison's legacy with the Steelers is ultimately up to you

James Harrison's legacy with the Steelers is ultimately up to you

How will James Harrison's ugly departure from the Steelers organization last season ultimately define his legacy? I guess that's up to you. “He erased himself. He erased his own legacy here.” That quote came from Steelers Pro Bowl center and team leader, Maurkice Pouncey, late last season, following the ugly departure of legendary outside linebacker, James Harrison, who, upon his release from the team, quickly signed with the hated Patriots right before the start of the playoffs. It’s hard to say what left a nastier taste in Pouncey’s mouth: Harrison’s decision to sign with New...
2018 Pittsburgh Steelers Big Board (By Ranking, 3.0)

2018 Pittsburgh Steelers Big Board (By Ranking, 3.0)

Mark III of 2018 Big Board, with the grades settling as we lead up to the NFL Draft! Organized by Highest Value (“HV#”) to the Steelers. Great players for other teams get downgraded here, as do positions where Pittsburgh has limited “want.” An HV of 1:25 means the player is a reach for the Steelers at any point before Pick # 25 overall but good value at any point from the end of the 1st on. Getting that player in the early 2nd would be fine, while getting him at 2:14 would almost be a steal. Yes, this system results in a certain amount of grade inflation for positions of need...
Could Dez Bryant be headed to the AFC North with the Ravens this season?

Could Dez Bryant be headed to the AFC North with the Ravens this season?

The recently released wide receiver could be finding a home in the AFC North for at least the 2018 regular season. The NFL can be a crazy business, and it becomes very apparent when you see a proven veteran like Dez Bryant suddenly released by the Dallas Cowboys. Since Bryant’s outright release, he is now looking for a new home. Many are guessing where he may land, but the one team who has the most buzz around it would be the Baltimore Ravens. Could the Ravens bring Bryant to the AFC North? According to an NFL Network report it is certainly a strong possibility: “They signed Michael...
Misconceptions Surrounding Le’Veon Bell, Part Two: The Steelers Salary Cap Killer

Misconceptions Surrounding Le’Veon Bell, Part Two: The Steelers Salary Cap Killer

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Le’Veon Bell have a unique relationship. With that said, the Steelers’ All-Pro running back is also extremely misunderstood. In the previous article, I probed into Le’Veon Bell’s perceived greed and his desire to be paid as the top RB and a No. 2 WR. Now I turn my sights to the perceived destruction of the team’s salary cap not only in 2018, but also future years. Kevin Colbert has been the General Manager of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2000 and Vice President of Football and Business Administration, Omar Khan, was brought as Colbert’s right-hand...
Steelers players take to social media to say congratulations to James Harrison on a great career

Steelers players take to social media to say congratulations to James Harrison on a great career

Despite how he left, teammates were extremely appreciative of James Harrison and his tremendous career. As of Monday morning, when James Harrison announced his retirement, media outlets around the NFL all said something very similar: “James Harrison retires...again” After Harrison’s 2014 retirement, then return to the Steelers until the 2017 season, a second retirement typically doesn’t get as much attention. Nonetheless, despite how Harrison left the Steelers for the New England Patriots last season, plenty of his current, and former, teammates took to social media to congratulate...
Mock Draft Monday: A draft day trade which moves the Steelers into the Top 10

Mock Draft Monday: A draft day trade which moves the Steelers into the Top 10

The Pittsburgh Steelers picking in the Top 10? The latest mock draft draws up a trade which could have it happen. For teams who draft in the back of the 2018 NFL Draft, there are times when things can get boring. As teams like the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants and plenty of others are all talking about their Top 10 selections, a team like the Pittsburgh Steelers is forced to take a wait-and-see approach due to their on field success in 2017. However, what if they didn’t have to just wait around to see what was going to happen and who might fall to them? What if the team actually made...
Steelers 2017 Draft Retrospective: Did JuJu live up to the draft-night hype?

Steelers 2017 Draft Retrospective: Did JuJu live up to the draft-night hype?

Steelers 2017 rookie receiver JuJU Smith-Schuster had a high bar to clear in 2017, considering he had to share a receivers room with Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. But did he live up to the draft-night hype? Confession time: I’ve never experienced “juju”, good or bad. I’ve never Juju’d on that beat. I’m not even a fan of Jujyfruit candies. Seriously, they’re like gummy bears on steroids. The stick to your teeth like it’s nobody’s business. Ever been entertained by a dog eating peanut butter for a few minutes? Feed the pup some Jujyfruits and settle in for hours of...
Misconceptions Surrounding Le’Veon Bell, Part One: Greed and Loyalty

Misconceptions Surrounding Le’Veon Bell, Part One: Greed and Loyalty

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Le’Veon Bell have a unique relationship. With that said, the Steelers’ All-Pro running back is also extremely misunderstood. Le’Veon Bell tweeted recently how he is a victim, complaining about how fans view him as a villain. He’s right. I read every day here on BTSC, and in other media sources, comments blasting Bell for everything from poor play, to being greedy, to his checkered past. Some aspects of these views have merit, but many others are half-truths or outright falsehoods. Most upsetting are the false narratives spread by other writers and fans...
James Harrison announces his retirement from football — again

James Harrison announces his retirement from football — again

The Pittsburgh Steelers legend has decided to hang up the cleats, but will he hang them up for good? James Harrison is retiring from football — again. After telling media he will wait until after the NFL Draft to decided where he wants to play the 2018 season, he has had a change of heart. This from his verified Instagram page: I've missed way too much for way too long...and I'm done. Many thanks to my family, coaches, the fans, and everyone who played a role in my football life. #2ndAndFinalRetirement #HarrisonFamilyValues #BlessedAndHighlyFavored #GodsPlan A post shared by ...
Day 3 sleepers the Steelers could target in the 2018 NFL Draft

Day 3 sleepers the Steelers could target in the 2018 NFL Draft

The Steelers could find some gems on Day 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft. Day 3 of the NFL Draft is a time where teams look to find those true value picks they are searching for. In the case of the Pittsburgh Steelers, most notably, Antonio Brown has come out of the Day 3 resume of picks. However, it does not mean they are hunting for stars like Richard Sherman or Tom Brady, but rather for good, solid players that add to the team. If you want an example of this, think of someone like Vince Williams or Anthony Chickillo. All of these are quality players who have proven to be either solid starters...
Steelers raise ticket prices for the 2018 regular season

Steelers raise ticket prices for the 2018 regular season

If you are making your trip to Heinz Field in 2018, it might cost you a little more than it did in previous years. If you have never been to Heinz Field before, you are really missing out on a special place. The atmosphere from when you walk onto the property with tailgating, etc. to the game itself — it is a magical place for Pittsburgh Steelers fans. However, if you have never been, there are some likely big reasons why. First, you might live far away. Whether overseas or on the other side of the country, traveling isn’t cheap. Next, speaking of cheap — the tickets aren’t cheap...
2018 Mock Draft database shows the Steelers favored to select Leighton Vander Esch in Round 1

2018 Mock Draft database shows the Steelers favored to select Leighton Vander Esch in Round 1

The “experts” on the internet have spoken, and they feel the Steelers and Leighton Vander Esch are destined to meet up in Round 1 of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Pittsburgh Steelers have options when it comes to their first round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Not only when it comes to prospects, but also in regarding position. With the free agency moves they have made, the Steelers could take an inside linebacker if one of their prized prospects remains, a safety or even another position which they feel the Best Player Available (BPA) strategy would leave them no other choice but to select a...
