Since the NFL went to fan voting as the prime source of voting for the annual NFL All-Star game, the Steelers have always been well represented. In 2017, no team had more players voted into the game than Pittsburgh.
While voting hasn’t ended, the Steelers are again dominating the Pro Bowl voting for the 2018 game.

The biggest factor for Steelers fans is the hope their favorite players from their favorite team win the vote for their respective position, but the overall hope is no members of the team will be able to play in the joke of a football game due to preparations for the Super Bowl.
