Hello Eagle's fans!
Week three seems to be a good time to get this weekly conversation going, we have had two weeks to become more familiar with our teams and we are facing in-state rivals.
For the most part Steelers fans are expecting big things from our team this season with a superb offense led by Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. Even without two of our best players in WR Martavis Bryant (suspended for the season) and RB LeVeon Bell (Suspended for the first 3 games) the offense doesn't appear to be missing a beat.
The Steelers defense went from old and slow to young and extremely fast over the last three years. Surprisingly to us fans the team is implementing a bend don't break type of philosophy over the first two weeks, blitzing little, and giving up short underneath passes. The only name you are likely to recognize is James Harrison who is still contributing at an advanced age for an NFL player. The secondary is still an issue, but appears to be improved from last year.
I didn't watch much of your game Monday night but the reports I have seen at BTSC are mostly positive and Carson Wentz even got a comparison to a young Big Ben who is finally being recognized as one of the best QB's in the NFL.
Cheers to a great conversation and
