Good Wednesday to you Steelers fans.
A few days ago the National Football League and HBO announced that the Dallas Cowboys would be this year’s featured team on “Hard Knocks,” the network’s popular program that dives head first into everything. This will be the Cowboys’ third appearance on the program and if you know what that means then it means they haven’t been good. HK chooses teams that did not qualify for the postseason. There has been some trepidation among Steelers Nation in those 8-8 years because it feels that the majority of the fan base would not want to be on the show. That goes double for me. While I think the in-depth look at how teams manage Camp and the preseason is really insightful, I just cringe at the thought of what we could learn about Pittsburgh players and coaches. I say this because the conversations that emerge from HK are rarely about the game or the operations of it. The discussions usually turn to individual players or coaches and highlight their “uniqueness” if you will. While there are certainly some Steelers I would be interested in learning more about that doesn’t trump the fearful feelings I have about what could be a lot of “cringe-worthy” moments. Therefore, I will be more than happy to see the team from Big D once again take the baton.
The Podcast (or Not)
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Fourth of July holiday. I’m currently away from home helping out my parents who have reached that age where help is needed. The SCB Steelers Podcast presented by DEK Roofing Inc will not air this week but my schedule is not the reason. We are in the midst of doing some “moving and shaking” if you will with the podcast. This is part of a move that we’ve been working on for several months. Once it is complete you’ll be the first to know! Needless to say we are excited about it!
Tweet of the Day… Happy Birthday Chase Claypool!

In conjunction with our great friend Craig, we are going to give away ten items from our online store at DC4L Custom Tees. We’ll be doing this via our social media accounts starting soon so stay tuned!!
Things seemed to have settled down a bit in regards to Devin Bush’s odd social media behavior in recent days. One thing that needs to be nipped in the bud is this. The Steelers are not trading Bush or releasing him. Has his behavior been concerning? Yes but it doesn’t even come close to any point where the organization would even consider such a drastic move. Bush is 22 and while he’s done some odd things let’s just slow down shall we?
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
