Good Thursday to you Steelers fans.
Here’s your T.J. Watt update as of this morning. “There’s nothing new to report.” Anyway, yesterday Ben Roethlisberger was asked about Watt’s situation and he said, “he (Watt) deserves whatever he’s asking for.” And just like every other time Roethlisberger makes a comment, his detractors were just waiting to pounce. First up was former Atlanta Falcon Roddy White who clearly is practicing in “revisionist history.”
I wish Big Ben would’ve felt the same way about AB getting paid in Pittsburg how he feelings about TJ hell AB would still be there. I ain’t hear none of this talk when AB was trying to get extended and TJ play defense.

Nevermind that AB was the highest paid WR at the time…
Next up is Gregg Rosenthal whose sports’ writing career has apparently devolved into “football” according to his Twitter bio. I’m guessing Big Ben didn’t give him an interview so he’s still holding a grudge. This comment is without any merit whatsoever.

These are two examples of why I honestly wish Seven wouldn’t talk to the media anymore.

It’s early in the week so I’m not overly concerned but I’m not thrilled with any of those three being on there. With Stephon Tuitt already not having Tyson Alualu 100% or at all is extremely bad. Star Lotulelei is expected to play but were he absent that would be a great thing for our young offensive line.
Tonight is a big show for us. Not only do we continue to transition to a video format but this is our Season Preview show as well. We will discuss our thoughts on who is in line for a big year, who might not be, our Super Bowl selections and the Steelers’ final record. Those items and a whole lot more as usual. Dropping tonight is the SCB Steelers Podcast presented by DEK Roofing.
My Season Preview
I’m not sure I’ve ever written 1,600 plus words for one article before but I sure did this time. I had a lot of thoughts going into this season and with all that has gone on, the tough schedule etc I finally settled on a prediction. Appreciate you taking a look!
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
