Good Wednesday to you Steelers fans.
Steelers’ twitter is as predictable as the sun coming up each day. When a player on another team is released the tweets calling for said player to come to Pittsburgh follow. Such was the case yesterday when it became known that the Minnesota Vikings were going to release tight end Kyle Rudolph. The former Notre Dame product spent ten seasons in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and now finds himself on the open market. Do the Steelers need tight end help? Oh hell yes they do. Behind the receiving specialist Eric Ebron are Zach Gentry and Kevin Rader. Not much experience and not much talent. Last season, Rudolph played for about $7.3 million. I believe he could be had for much less than that but I think you’re all well aware that we have serious cap issues to attend to before we even think about outside free agents. Oddly enough, should Rudolph come to Pittsburgh that would give the Steelers two Rudy’s and I’m not sure any of us are ready for that.
Tweet of the Day… This.
Despite what PFF tells you, It’s actually pretty hard to find QBs who just put up a season with 33td/10int and 4 game winning drives. While dealing with the worst run game.

Something We Must Consider
While all signs currently point to Ben Roethlisberger being back and under center in 2021, there is the possibility that he and the Steelers can’t come to an agreement on the financials. In other words, if Art Rooney II, Kevin Colbert and company don’t see Roethlisberger’s agent Ryan Tolner meet them in the middle then this whole thing could be off. We may assume they’ve already discussed this and that’s why both sides have happily stated Big Ben will be back, but things change rapidly in this league. My gut tells me this gets done but we must be ready for anything.
Dear Browns’ Fans
Look, every fan base has jerks, even ours, but why does it seem that Browns’ fans suddenly have the corner marketed on such behavior? By all means please enjoy the two straight wins you have over the Steelers. The Browns earned both of those victories. That doesn’t however just erase the past two plus decades of Steelers’ dominance. I’m glad the rivalry seems to be coming on again but have some perspective people.
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
