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.com

    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?

    Steelers Strangle Jaguars

    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 to be the second yawner (was anyone awake in the third quarter) in a row.What's new to say? Certainly not the offensive play calling. Why is Benny Snell the go to guy with the ball inside the 5 yard line. Why are we running on 2nd and long, let alone 3rd and long?While we're not seeing Ben the Bomber of old, he's making it happen with an armamentarium replete with deadly weapons. Diontae Johnson broke the 100 yard mark for the second game in a row. Chase Claypool came within one TD (10) of the all-time Steeler record for a rookie.James Conner exceeded 6 yards per carry on his way to 89 yards.But it was the magnificent defense that held Jacksonville to 3 points, which came on the first drive. The Jaguars would only see the Steeler side of the field once more in the entire game.Minkah Fitzpatrick and Terrell Edmunds turned on their Luton Radars, picking him for two INTs each. While the Bud Dupree and Stephon Tuitt extended the Steeler consecutive game sack streak to 67.Tune into this podcast as we contemplate the disrespect for the Steelers 10 game winning streak.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
