Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan confidence increasing throughout busy offseason

The Pittsburgh Steelers have uncharacteristically made a lot of moves this offseason, and the fan base feels they are moving in the right direction.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been unusually busy this offseason, both in getting rid of players as well as acquiring talent.

Gone are former staples Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Marcus Gilbert.

In are newcomers Steven Nelson, Donte Moncrief and Mark Barron.

Throughout the offseason, fans are keeping close tabs, as they always do, on the team and whether they see the arrow as rising, or falling. If you go back to the end of last season, it wasn’t pretty. In fact, according to our BTSC Steelers FanPulse results the fan base didn’t have much confidence on where the team was heading.

But as the offseason progresses, and even as those aforementioned players leave for new pastures, the fan base’s confidence is starting to rise slowly...check out the latest FanPulse data:

Confidence in the team at the end of 2018: 15%

Confidence in the team: 56%

Did the Steelers get better in Free Agency: 71% YES
