Answering the burning questions surrounding the Steelers heading into training camp

There are a lot of questions surrounding this 2018 Steelers team, and we have answer. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sportswriter Ed Bouchette holds a weekly chat in which he takes questions from the general public. If you’re unfamiliar with Bouchette, he’s definitely an interesting character. He’s known for breaking important Steelers news and also for his snarky and colorful comments. This week’s full chat session can be read here. Most of Bouchette’s answers to fans are one-liners. It’s hard to glean useful information from that, so I decided to expand on questions he takes with...

What will it take for Antonio Brown to surpass Jerry Rice’s many receiving records?

What will it take for Antonio Brown to surpass Jerry Rice’s many receiving records?

Antonio Brown is blazing a trail no one, and I mean no one, has ever walked. Time to see what needs to be done for him to surpass the greatest of all-time, Jerry Rice. A couple of weeks ago there was a spirited debate on the BTSC boards about Jerry Rice and Antonio Brown. Part of that discussion was whether Brown would surpass Rice in some of the mind-blowing records he currently holds (Wiki states that, as of 2016, Rice holds more than 100 NFL records). I had the pleasure of watching Rice’s entire career, and I’m currently watching Brown’s career unfold before my eyes. It’s...

PFF dives deep into the Steelers statistical minutia this offseason

PFF dives deep into the Steelers statistical minutia this offseason

Some love PFF. Some hate PFF. Either way, these stats regarding the Black-and-gold are telling. More often than not, when Pro Football Focus (PFF) numbers are thrown about on BTSC, a skirmish ensues about the validity of PFF and their grading or rankings. Steelers fans can either take them as an oracle for advanced metrics and film break-downs, or simply as entertainment. However you want to take them, they do churn out some interesting tweets about Pittsburgh Steelers players. Last fall, PFF made more Twitter accounts directing their tweets towards the teams involved, and not just to their...

Former Steelers’ offensive tackle Mike Adams attempting a comeback at Tight End

Former Steelers’ offensive tackle Mike Adams attempting a comeback at Tight End

The former Pittsburgh Steelers second round pick was out of football in 2017, but is attempting a comeback — at tight end. I chuckled when I first read a blurb about Mike Adams, the former Pittsburgh Steelers’ second-round bust, transforming from offensive tackle to tight end. Like many Steelers fans, the memories I have of the former Ohio State Buckeye were not fond ones. Mainly, Adams being a swinging gate at right tackle is what I picture in my mind's eye. Clicking on this link took me to the story on an Ohio State fan website. I have to admit I was blown away by the new and...
