Steelers more than excited for the return of the “stud” Martavis Bryant

Steelers more than excited for the return of the “stud” Martavis Bryant

The best player added to the team’s roster isn’t a rookie or a free agent, but a particular “stud” wide receiver ready to make a mark after his reinstatement. The one thing which trumps all in the NFL is talent. You have to do something ridiculously stupid off the field for a top tier player to have their owners turn their backs on them.

Former Steelers Assistant Coach wins lifetime achievement award, while another should also be a nominee

While overall history tells us that opportunistic defenses are key to Super Bowl success, recent results show a decline in the importance of takeaways. If there’s been one real constant for the first 51 Super Bowl champions, dating back to the Packers victory over the Chiefs in Super Bowl I in January of 1967, it’s that these teams have had defenses that take the football away at a high rate. How high, you ask? The previous 51 Super Bowl champions averaged just under 36.2 takeaways during the regular season. Therefore, when a head coach stresses winning the turnover battle while he...
