SCB Steelers Quick Hitters: The “Character Revealed” Edition

Good Monday to you Steelers fans.

Like many of you, we are still processing the tragic loss of Steelers’ Quarterback Dwayne Haskins. There is so much about what happened that makes little sense. None of which I’m going to get into here either. The fact is, a young man lost his life. What I can tell you is that tragedies like this often reveal our truest character. Gil Brandt of NFL Radio revealed himself as an insensitive asshole and I hope he no longer works there by the end of today. Chase Claypool revealed himself as a young man struggling with a sudden loss while thousands of fans “had a problem” with his show of emotion. Adam Schefter again revealed that getting a story out was more important than proofreading a tweet. We often learn about ourselves in times of crises and just as importantly, we learn about others. Missteps and mistakes can be made but in the last 48 hours I’ve seen a lot ugly of behavior in response to a young man’s tragic death. We all need to do better.

The Latest Pod

In case you missed it… Episode 264 of the SCB Steelers Podcast presented by DEK Roofing Inc. is available for both listening or video pleasures. We discussed the contract situations with Diontae Johnson and Minkah Fitzpatrick and discussed the offensive linemen and tight ends for the upcoming draft.

Tweet of the Day… No words necessary.

The Football Side

There are many unfortunate sides to a situation like the passing of Dwayne Haskins and one of those is the fact that football continues. The Steelers now have a larger need for a quarterback in this draft. That does not mean they have a greater need for one early in the draft but with just Mitchell Trubisky and Mason Rudolph on the roster. My first inclination is that they’ll draft a QB and then sign a free agent, perhaps a rookie, right after the draft.

Safety Dance

I have to admit that I’m really starting to come around to the fact that the Steelers could draft a safety much earlier than expected. With no starting strong safety currently on this roster, will the Steelers grab one in what is considered a relatively weak class? People keep screaming for Honey Badger or Terrell Edmunds. Don’t you think either would have signed by now if they were really truly interested? This isn’t to say that either won’t, but clearly demands by the player are not being met with demands by the team. While it won’t happen, if Kyle Hamilton fell I’d be thrilled. The other option could be Dax Hill but would they have to grab him at 20 and is that too high? Something has to give here either way.
