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. With an overhang of at least $14 million, what’s the best way for the Steelers to get under the limit? Art Rooney assures us that we’re not in rebuilding mode. What are the chances of the Stee…
 
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 P…
 
Tom Brady won his seventh Super Bowl ring, surpassing the Steeler's number of Lombardi Trophies. We recorded this session with about 3 minutes left in a championship that could have been used to anesthetize a patient undergoing surgery. Brady had three TD passes and won the MVP. Does Nick NOW believe TB is the GOAT? In some good new for Pittsburgh,…
 
We send our condolences to the Rooney family who lost matriarch Patricia - wife of Dan Sr., mother of AR II - who passed away this week at 88. She was another pillar in a family who built and maintained a team with integrity and pride. Ben Roethlisberger: "I don’t care bout my pay at all this year!” With $40m of cap hit kicked down the road until i…
 
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, t…
 
There were MAJOR changes in the upper coaching echelon. One change was long overdue. Another change needs an explanation and the third was a head-scratcher. Meanwhile the NFL seems to be sniffing around our vaunted front office. HANDS OFF! The Steelers will pick 24th in the 2021 draft. We’ll touch on it during this episode before launching into a d…
 
*Steelers suffer yet another embarrassing, early playoff exit at the hands of a heavy underdog. How, after going down 28-0, and somehow clawing back to within striking distance did they blow it in the end? Did Pouncey’s bad snap and Ben’s ensuing INT render the subsequent collapse inevitable? Why the defensive deference to Baker? Were TJ and Minka …
 
Why was this a de facto victory for the Steelers? Although we dispel the thought of Mason as heir apparent to Ben, we talk about his best performance as a pro and how he fits into the Steeler future. Next men up: McDonald, Wormley, Williamson, Elliott, Rader What to make of this offensive line? Is Ray Ray McCloud regressing? Sideline roughhousing: …
 
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 awakeni…
 
This three game slide has been brutal, not only on our record, but on our high hopes to end on a high note as the Ben Roethlisberger era winds to its inevitable end. BUT, in this episode, we focus on the positives: QB talent is plentiful Young talent still on their first contract We also talk about what the Steelers can do to build for the future. …
 
Game Themes Father Time has Caught Big Ben Offensive line is unrecognizable Anemic offense wears defense down Cincinnati leverages third-string QB Super Bowl hopes are dashed GAME RECAP 1st Half Complete offensive futility - 40 total yards Better play calling 2nd Half First two drives give hope, but offense fizzles Defense firepower drained as time…
 
Game Themes The offense is broken Tomlin denies philosophical issue Why keep Ben if you have to protect him like this? O-Line horrible & injured Dionte & Ebron still terrible Claypool needs to take next step Not enough explosive players (RB) The defense is phenomenal, but depleted Offense put them in hole (time of possession) Allen eventually figur…
 
We felt this coming. There were too many games that hinged on slash plays beneficial bounces of the ball for us to be comfortable with an undefeated record. The under-rated Washington Football Team dialed in to a depleted, worn-out, predictable Steelers team. Playing 3 games in 12 days, the Steelers showed signs of fatigue. More injuries. MORE drop…
 
Lead Story: Bud Dupree lost for the season Offense victimizes itself with 9 dropped passes Special Teams gaffs Defense suppresses Ravens Mike Tomlin: "The urgency needs to be felt" Visit the website www.steelersoutpost.com Check us out on Instagram @Steelersoutpost Hit us up on Twitter at @Steelersoutpost Shoot us an email at Steelersoutpost@gmail.…
 
COVID has savaged the Raven locker room, felling 20 dirty birds as of November 30. We talk the implications for the game, as well as whether the Steelers are being dealt from the bottom of the deck. Will the game eventually be postponed allowing the Ravens to get back to full strength? How should Baltimore - individuals and the team - be held accou…
 
Were we worried about this game with the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars? If you were around in 2017, yeah. You'd be worried too. Even with Jaguars coming out of the tunnel with a QB playing in his third NFL game. The Steelers finally take care of business. When they have a 10 point spread on the road, now THAT's the time to worry. But this turned out t…
 
Ben new practice regimen: homeschooling his pre-schooler 333 yards, 4 TDs 0 INT, 0 Sacks Steeler defense suppresses Bengals ZERO third down conversions Special Teams makes a 180 Boswell in the rain Forced fumbles Ray-Ray McCloud Claypool & Dionte break out What’s wrong with the run game? Next week, Jacksonville Jaguars. Visit the website www.steele…
 
The 14.5 point spread should have told you everything you needed to know to bet big and bring home the bacon: Bet the Cowboys. In usual Steelers fashion (Mike Tomlin is 2-10 against the spread when favored by +10 points on the road), Pittsburgh staked the Cowboys an early lead, demonstrated futility for the entire first half, then made up their min…
 
Steelers 28 - Ravens 24 Robert Spillane seemingly ignited the Steelers on the third play of the game with an interception and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown. BUT, the Steelers showed a notable lack of offensive aggression in the first half, running only 20 plays. The defense allowed 179 rushing yards in the first half an 265 overall, the most…
 
We relaxed when the Steelers went up 24-7 at the half. Boy were we wrong Platooning the Wide Receiver Corps Diontae Johnson is back! JuJu Smith-Schuster - Mr. Reliable Claypool and Washington not in the game plan Ben’s Weird Day 3/11 on passes > 10 yards and 3 INTs Lowest time to throw in the league - 2.29 seconds He's still Ben-like - watch the 10…

Steelers 38 - Eagles 29 Steelers go to 4-0 for the first time since 1979, ending an NFL-longest 40 season drought This is the highest point total for the Steelers since they hung 52 points on the Panthers in game 10 in 2018. Chase Claypool’s 4 touchdowns in a single game are the most ever by a Steelers rookie. Only three other Steelers have ever ac…
 
The Steelers open the season 3-0 for the first time since 2010 when they went 12-4, ultimately falling to the Packers in the Super Bowl. After falling behind 21-17 after two quarters, the Steelers made some "technical adjustments" to the defensive scheme during halftime, resulting in a near shut down of Houston. The Texans eeked out a measly 51 of …
 
We won a game we normally lose Offensive Positives Offensive line QB pressures limited to 7 of 42 dropbacks Kevin Dotson’s yields NO pressures in his first career start Ben’s feathery touch New Money Receivers Diontae Giveth and Diontae Giveth Away Offensive Negatives Dropped passes Snell comes back to Earth Play calling doesn’t leverage our talent…

Ben Roethlisberger gets personal in his new documentary Bigger Than Ben. With insight from Ashley Roethlisberg, team doctor Jim Bradley and Ben himself, you’ll get insights into his decision to undergo surgery to set him up for his 17th NFL season. Friday Night Lights were cut short, but in a 45 minute intra-squad scrimmage, there were plenty of pe…
 
Intensity has been noticeable at camp: TJ Watt and Zach Banner square off. Minkah Fitzpatrick doesn’t appreciate Benny Snell’s stiff arm. Bud Dupree smashes first down marker after Eric Ebron’s reception Ben Roethlisberger looks like Ben and is developing chemistry with his receiving corps: Connecting with JuJu Smith-Schuster Ryan Switzer is jacked…
 
The Steelers’ PR department opens up training camp for fans. We’ve become accustomed to seeing a big jump in the capabilities of players entering their second year. Benny Snell has entered camp leaner than last year. Will this help to address his palpable lack of speed? Diontae Johnson has also gained some weight and muscle in the off season. Does …
 
James Washington of the COVID list and back on the field Ben Roethlisberger - still has gas in the tank, and yes, he said “Lombardis”.... Plural. How motivated is he? Mike Tomlin waxes about COVID, Ben’s progress and the shape of the veterans coming into camp While not exceptional, the running back room is solid and getting crowded. How will Jaylen…
 
NFL teams open camp amidst uncertainty. We go over the protocols designed to inhibit the emergence and spread of the virus, but as the MLB has proven, odds are that we’re going to be dealing with COVID-related absences as already evidenced by the Steelers reserve/COVID-19 list. The Steelers bolster the running back and safety positions by picking u…
 
The NFL and players agreed to proceed with the season. But wait until you hear what’s going on with the salary cap. How will the Steelers avoid the disintegration of the juggernaut it has built? The Steelers open with a Monday night game at the Giants. Does a fanless stadium help Ben get out to a fast start? The Jamal Adams deal proves the genius o…
 
The NFL players light a social media blitz: #WeWantToPlay - the NFL isn’t COVID-ready, yet training camp for several teams starts July 20. You’ve had three months and about $15 billion in revenue NFL!! You’re about as ready for this as the Trojans were for that equine gift the Greeks left behind. July 15 came and went. It was the last day to sign c…
 
Bud Dupree is going to squeeze everything he can out of this franchise tag situation. He’s filed a grievance, saying he’s been mischaracterized. It’s worth another $2m to him if he wins. This season feels tenuous at best, but the Steelers are making plans to accommodate fans at the games. Brown gets paid. How about this deal-of-the-century for Patr…
 
Plenty of intrigue among Steeler adversaries as the Patriots hire Cam Newton, while David Njoku makes his displeasure known to the Brown’s ownership. The NFL is s scrambling to stay ahead of the impact from COVID-19 with talk of shortening the pre-season and allowing players to opt out of playing in 2020. We’re glass-half-full guys about the season…
 
For the first time in 54 years, the Steelers will not be going to training camp at St. Vincent’s in Latrobe. We talk about what this break in tradition portends for the 2020 season. While Heinz Field will accommodate the team logistically, will the location detract from building team chemistry. Tom reminisces about the 1976 training camp where he f…
 
Cam Extension on Hold? During a recent interview, Cam said “I have truly loved being a Pittsburgh Steeler and enjoyed being a Pittsburgh Steeler.” "LOVED"?! "ENJOYED"?! Those are past tense verbs. What's going on? Cam has another year left on his six year deal and has only gotten better with time. We talk about the imperative that is Mission Heywar…
 
NFL Tinker With Rules The owners met last week and instituted several changes. We talk about the "one that got away". Well, at least it's been tabled. In an effort to give a trailing team a realistic chance to mount a comeback, the NFL was considering instituting a rule whereby the team would have an untimed down to convert a fourth-and-15 from the…
 
Top 100 NFL Players Gaff ​CBS Sports' Pete Prisco put out his annual "Top 100 Players" list. Although four Steelers made the list, Minkah Fitzpatrick was curiously omitted. Of course this list is just one man's opinion, but Prisco doubled down and Steeler Nation jumped on it. And then Minkah himself jumped into the fray.... ​Ben Fulfills Goal - She…
 
James Harrison During an interview on Willie Colon's Goin Deep Podcast James Harrison revealed that'd after his big hit on Mohamed Massaquoi Mike Tomlin "handed me an envelope" implying that he received some mitigation or reward for the hit that ultimately added $75,000 to the fines that started accumulating for him in 2010. Social media blew up, s…

Although we can agree that …
 
QBs in the News Andy Dalton, recently released by the Cincinnati Bengals, was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys to backup Day Prescott. We talk about whether he would have been a preferable backup to Ben given his reasonable $3m salary. Jameis Winston signed with the New Orleans Saints for an unfathomable $1.1m. What's the strategy behind that and wh…
 
It looks like the Steelers restocked the pantry, selecting a 2020 draft class that provides depth at a variety of positions. ​ Round 2 Chase Claypool Wide receiver Round 3 Alex Highsmith Edge Round 4 Anthony McFarland Running back Round 4 Kevin Dotson Guard Round 6 Antoine Brooks. Safety Round 7 Carlos Davis Nose tackle We talk about how well these…
 
The Steelers got a jump on this year's draft and already have their #1 selection in the fold. And he's GREAT!! Minkah Fitzpatrick has taken the stress out of the guessing game for choosing a player in the first round. We talk about positions that the Steelers might emphasize early in this draft. We could be totally wrong that they'll just take the …
 
NFL Draft Steelers GM Kevin Colbert has a suggestion that he thinks will help overcome the challenge of evaluating players during the COVID-19 invoked sequestration.
