On the latest SCU podcast, Joe flies solo, answering a question he was asked, and addresses in an upcoming article on the website: which of the Pittsburgh Steelers games do you think would be the best to go to?
Picking out the best games to go to can be very subjective, especially at a time of the year where we’re unsure of how teams may pan out. However, Joe gives it a shot, going by potential matchups, previous storylines carrying...

Joe and Brian are back during this “dead season” of June to talk about some Steelers history, based on a recent (and nearly yearly update) of Ed Bouchette’s articles on the same topic: who are some of the best free agent signings of the Kevin Colbert era?
Of course, the hosts couldn’t leave it at that, so expect a few more surprises – and no spoilers on who the worst are! (That will be coming later this week!)

Joe and Brian tackle a new topic today: what might the Steelers 2020 training camp sessions look like?
The NFL sent out a memo last week “sending teams home” for their training camps and effectively ending a 52-year run at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania for the Steelers.
Now there’s rumblings that the team could take their camp to Heinz Field, but does that mean it’s open for fans? And what happens with the players? D...

Some citizens of Steelers Nation just won’t get off the subject, so Joe and Brian are back on it too.
The discussion of the day revolves around backup quarterbacks, particularly those who have played behind Ben Roethlisberger: do we remember some as having better games, careers, and/or stats than the really had?
And what of being a passer in the NFL overall?
Drafting, signing or otherwise acquiring a quarterback doesn’t always transla...

Joe and Brian take to the airwaves to challenge CBS Sports' Pete Prisco and his Top 100 NFL Players list by asking which Steelers are deserving of such a distinction heading into the 2020 season.
The hosts have some intriguing takes, including some names you'd be surprised about: Prisco also shocked us with one of his inclusions, as well as a huge glaring omission to his best 100.
The takes are hotter than ever in this episod...

Brian and Zach team up to sort out the “not takes” from the “hot takes” circulating Steelers Nation.

The contract status of several players is also on the line as the duo reacts to the nonstop nonsense we see all over the world wide web.
