Johnson: Steelers' offense going to air things out

Mitch Trubisky dropped back to pass early in Thursday's final training camp practice here at Saint Vincent College and let a pass fly deep over the middle. Diontae Johnson, who had gotten a step on the corner covering him, easily ran under the ball and continued down the middle of the field to the end zone, much to the delight of the crowd on hand. It's something we didn't see a lot of from the Steelers' offense in 2021, but we might see more of in 2022 as the team moves on from the Ben Roethlisberger era.

Drive to the Net: Is Puustinen Penguins' most intriguing prospect?

It's no secret the Penguins' prospect pool is, well ... barren. With no disrespect to NHL-ready Drew O'Connor, Radim Zohorna and P.O Joseph, the Penguins lack projectable high-end star talent in their system. Could Valtteri Puustinen have the greatest potential of them all?

Mike's Beer Bar War Room: Offensive line must take next step forward

The Steelers' offensive line is the weakest position group on the roster. The offensive line reaching its full potential could pay bigger dividends than any other position group doing so, but so far they're leaving more to be desired. A step in the right direction from the O-line would be a massive step in the right direction for the entire team.
