Is the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Super Bowl window closing? And if so, how long till it slams shut?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team with a very distinguished past. Everyone who follows the team, or even the NFL, knows of their record 6 Super Bowl victories. But what most fans don’t to talk about is how long they can be considered a viable option to win a seventh Lombardi trophy.

You know, what about the team’s ‘Super Bowl Window’?

Is it open? Is it shut? Is it slightly ajar?

Inquiring minds want to know, and this was the was the crux of the new podcast ‘Steelers Burning Question’ which aired last night on our YouTube channel.

In the podcast I go into greater detail on whether I believe the Steelers’ Super Bowl window is closing, or if it there still remains time before it is shut completely. Just thinking outside the box, but is it possible for the Steelers’ Super Bowl window to never be completely closed?

Look at history, even in the 1980s the Steelers had teams who made some runs into the playoffs. In the 1990s it was Neil O’Donnell and Kordell Stewart who orchestrated some tremendous teams, but all fell short of the ultimate goal.

Which brings me to my next question, how exactly can one define a ‘Super Bowl Window’? Does it mean you are a front-runner throughout the season, or just capable of winning the whole thing?

A lot to be deciphered here, and I lay it all out there for the listeners in the latest show...
