Steelers Off-Season Recap
The Steelers had a relatively quiet off-season. Like most teams, there were some departures and additions. They added Patrick Peterson, Allen Robinson, and Keanu Neal, all of which give the team more depth and experience.
The biggest story of the off-season is the development of Kenny Pickett. Pickett made the rounds of podcasts and sports news shows. He came off as mature and confident. He has a lot to be happy about. He is newly married to his college sweetheart and now has the blessing of Big Ben. This is his second season in this system and he is likely to really start to shine.
Steelers Preseason Recap
Throughout the preseason Coach Tomlin has been very strategic about how much he was willing to show his hand. He only played the ones against opposing ones and only for a couple of drives each time.
While this isn’t a huge sample size, the fact is that it shows us what the team should look like against opponents- and so far, they’ve been practically perfect. If the preseason is any indication, expect the scheme to be run-heavy and feature a ton of Pickett-to-Pickens connections.
The defense terrorized opponents during the preseason as well. Minkah Fitzpatrick is still the same ballhawk we have always loved, and TJ Watt is back and he’s healthy. This is Tomlin’s masterpiece defense.
Pittsburgh Steelers 2023 Predictions
A few months ago we asked ourselves “Who will the Steelers draft in 2023?” And after seeing the new lineup, you can expect to see the Steelers make it to the postseason this year. They may not make it deep, but as complete and hungry as this team is, there is no reason to think they won’t sneak in there somehow.
They are still relatively young and inexperienced as a team, however, their coach is anything but that. Tomlin has never had a losing season and the odds of it happening now that he has found a new franchise guy aren’t good.
Is a run at the Super Bowl possible? The real answer is that as talented as the team is, anything is possible. However, they would have to be almost perfect all year long and find some serious magic to make it happen.
