TJ continues to exceed expectations with game-ending dominance that secured the victory for the Steelers.  Ben looked more comfortable in the pocket and is focusing downfield, albeit with some of the usual errant throws.We’re looking at this team as in transition.

JuJu takes a “team friendly” deal with a one-year, $8 million contract.  It’s not as though he didn’t have options.Out of nowhere we hear that Steven Nelson asked to explore trade options and the Steelers granted the request.  Nelson’s departure compounds the weakening of the secondary with the loss of Mike Hilton.We also talk about other personnel changes that happened this past week: Vince Williams is released; Zach Banner and Chris Wormly were re-signed.  Former Detroit Lions’ LB Miles Killebrew and special teams star, is rumored to be negotiating a one-year deal.  The Steelers are also talking to offensive lineman  Joe Haeg, formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.Running Back Analysis:25:54 Najee Harris32:00 Javonte Williams36:47 Travis Etienne42:14Kenneth Gainwell47:26 Michael Carter50:40 Trey SermonHit us up on Twitter at @Steelersoutpost  Shoot us an email at Steelersoutpost@gmail.comSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

The Steelers made a surprise acquisition last year, bringing in Eric Ebron.  In 2017 it was Joe Haden. With little cap space in 2021, can Kevin Colbert work some magic to shore up some glaring weaknesses?What wasn’t a surprise was the signing of BJ Finney. He is a sorely-needed veteran presence for an offensive line that is disappearing before our eyes as Matt Feiler moves to the Chargers in a 3-year, $21 million deal.Although it was almost a foregone conclusion, it still hurts to see Bud Dupree leave. He’s going to the Titans for a deal that will pay him more than $16M per year. However, there is good news.  The Steelers re-signed CB Cam Sutton to a 2-Year, $9 million contract, less than anticipated, although the deal length is a bit odd.We wait with baited breath to see if we retain Joe Haden, but assume that we won’t be able to hold onto the Silver Bullet.Hit us up on Twitter at @Steelersoutpost  Shoot us an email at Steelersoutpost@gmail.comSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

We interpret Kevin Colbert’s GM-speak, "As we sit here today, Ben is a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.”By March 17 all teams have to meet the salary cap.

Pouncey retires having achieved all-pro first team twice and second team three times.  He was selected for the pro bowl nine times and was named to the Hall of Fame All-Decade team.  Will this push Ben to make a different decision? JJ Watt parts ways with the Texans.  Primanti Brothers said they would  rename themselves “Watt Brothers” if he lands in Pittsburgh. Could his brothers be enough of an attraction for him to sign a team-friendly contract with the Steelers? Get ready for Offensive Line Musical Chairs as Mike Tomlin says Zach Banner needs to plan to be the left tackle in  2021.  Retooling the O-Line with current players give us significant draft flexibility. Over 60% of the offensive coaching staff turned over since the end of the 2020 season.  The Steelers just brought in a quality control coach who has spent years at Matt Canada’s side. Although not as extensive, there is some retooling of the defensive coach ranks. The latest arrival may be a veteran defensive backs coach .Hit us up on Twitter at @Steelersoutpost  Shoot us an email at Steelersoutpost@gmail.comSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

While Vance McDonald’s announces his retirement, Maurkice Pouncey’s situation remains up in the air. What does it mean for Ben’s future when one of his best friends on the team retires and the other is in flux?The coaching ranks are shoring up with Matt Canada being named offensive coordinator and long-tenured tight-ends expert, Alfredo Roberts, taking the reigns over for that position group.  No surprisingly, Keith Butler is retained as the defensive coordinator. And of course…. The Buccaneers versus the Chiefs…. Tom Brady versus Patrick Mahomes….damn.Visit the website www.steelersoutpost.comCheck us out on Instagram @Steelersoutpost  Hit us up on Twitter at @Steelersoutpost  Shoot us an email at Steelersoutpost@gmail.com See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

With the Steelers languishing for the better part of three quarters, Ben Roethlisberger places a bomb on the outstretched hands of Diontae Johnson to complete a 39 yard touchdown that sparked a 21 point explosion over the three possessions to overcome what was looking like an insurmountable deficit.The defense was inspired by the offensive awakening, holding the Colts to 3 points and 148 offensive yards.We talk about what was seemingly the only story of this game - Ben casting off whatever, trepidation, pain, caution he was exhibiting over the last 3.75 games and placing the team on his shoulders.Not that the defense was waiting for a signal. Mike Hilton continued to show why we're nervous about our ability to keep him next season with an INT and 2 defended passes. TJ Watt raised the stakes in the DPOY competition, garnering 2 sacks, a forced fumble and a timely tackle that just may have saved a touchdown.What do you think the coaches will do against Cleveland next week?
