Steelers QB Horse Race Steelers 17 Chiefs 7 As if watching the Steelers isn’t stressful enough, as Outpost-ers, we had to watch the NFL Game Pass version of the Steelers-Chiefs, featuring the Kansas City broadcast crew of Ari Wolfe, Todd McShay and Trent Green, who apparently did their homework on this game in the broadcast truck during the rain delay.  Then they put it over the edge with a migraine-inducing, quarter-long interview...

Steelers Go To Washington Steelers 30 Tampa Bay 28 Our prayers go out to the family of Steelers wide receiver coach Darryl Drake who passed away on Sunday morning, August 11. He was 62 years old. No cause of death was given. Coach Drake leaves behind his wife, Sheila, three daughters, and several  grandchildren.  Expectations of a quality performance were low, but this was an entertaining game.  Frustratingly, but not surprisingly,...

Steelers Emerging Players Shuffling the Deck? At this time of year, all things are possible for all 32 teams in the NFL. As we watch Steeler training camp, there are some players who are playing above the line and may play roles beyond special teams. Ola Adeniyi has been dominant against the second team. He has come down to Earth a bit when he engaged with the first team, but there is something to his game...something to his effort...

Steelers Outpost Mad As Hell About Madden The Madden ratings are out and Ben's rating is 85 placing him as the #9 QB behind even Matt Ryan and and Phillip Rivers. We debate whether these ratings matter. You can imagine the Baby Boomer cannot understand this millennial concern. Mike Tomlin's interviewing prowess is underrated. He exceeds Belichick's brevity of factual information by delivering his own poetic perspectives. Although h...

Steelers: Sacrificing the Terrible Towel   Unfortunately, Nick got some bad sushi and is on injured reserve for this podcast. Unfortunately, you are in my hands.... We did some work while at the beach last week and put together this video for you to watch. It may be sacrilege to some, but it's a sacrifice for us.  We think we've done our part for campaign for the 2019 Super Bowl. Bradshaw versus Roethlisberger - although it's ridic...

Steelers Nation: Standing Up to a Ravens Fan Le’Veon has once again demonstrated an puzzling lack of judgement, this time unrelated to football, but similarly linked to his personal wealth.  Where is he getting his advice?!  Listen to the 911 call here. A Steelers Outpost host walks into a bar......   It's a true story... I was listening to the bartender extol the virtues of his foray into DIY graphic design and t-shirt creations (...

Steelers Rotating Running Backs It's Father's Day so what a great time to relive Tom's failings as a parent and how Nick had to develop his passion for the Steelers on his own, like a lonely orphan, abandoned to his own devices and Nintendo 64. The Steelers seem to be have the deepest contingent of running backs in years.  We talk about how the Steelers may allocate the workload to optimize results. Life isn't fair. The NFL certain...

Stacking The Steelers: 2018 versus 2019 Mandatory mini camp gets underway this week SteelersOutpost is very optimistic about this year's roster. In our opinion, Pittsburgh is one of the few teams without a major hole on the field (except for perhaps placekicking).  But have we improved over last year's team?  We review the position groups to assessment improvement or deterioration from last year. How difficult is the transition fro...

Joey Porter’s Comeback Joseph Eugene Porter Joey Porter, formerly beloved, sometimes ornery Pittsburgh icon, lowered both barrels at Ben, not only implying that he isn't a good leader, but proclaiming that Ben's apology wasn't timely enough to be meaningful. We spend not a little time unpacking Joey's perspective. OTAs How important is it that almost 100% of the Steelers are taking part in the Organized Team Activities this year? I...

Quenching the Flames Under Tomlin's Seat The NFL Draft is in sight, but none too soon as we fend off these bait-click stories that have no regard for the truth, especially as it applies to the Pittsburg Football Steelers. Rather than produce another iffy mock draft, we try to prioritize the Steeler positional needs and weigh that against the possible options presented to us by pick 20. Bleacher Report proclaims that "At least six N...
