The Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 season is officially over. After finishing the year 8-8, the Steelers, and their vast fan base, has another long offseason awaiting them. Just because the games are done doesn’t mean we stop providing you with features, commentary and opinions to tide you over throughout the offseason!

Today in the black-and-gold links article we take a look at how recently acquired offensive lineman Stefen Wisinewski is ready for his first regular season game at Heinz Field.

Let’s get to the news:

  • Stefen Wisinewski grew up in Pittsburgh, but hasn’t played in a regular season game at Heinz Field yet.

Chance to play at Heinz Field led Stefen Wisniewski to join hometown Steelers

Growing up in South Fayette and playing football at Central Catholic, Stefen Wisniewski always dreamed of suiting up for a meaningful game at Heinz Field.

It will take 10 years into his NFL career, but that wish will finally come true in 2020 for the Pittsburgh Steelers newest offensive lineman.

Despite spending four years with the Oakland Raiders, one with the Jacksonville Jaguars, three with the Philadelphia Eagles and one with the Kansas City Chiefs, Wisniewski never had the schedule work out in his favor.

His only appearance at Heinz Field came in a 2016 preseason game with the Eagles.

“My whole career, I’m like, ‘Man, I want to play at Heinz Field,’” Wisniewski said this week in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Obviously, I was hoping (to do it) as an away player, but getting to wear the black and gold at Heinz Field, I can’t even wrap my head around it.”

  • Is Eric Ebron a good fit for the Steelers?

Eric Ebron: ‘Ego,’ ‘enigma,’ ‘can’t rely on him.’ So how is he still ‘a good fit’ with Steelers?

By: Tim Benz, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

On the surface, the Steelers’ signing of Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron is either going to be a home run or nothing.

It looks that way on the surface, because that’s exactly the case.

Although, at tight end, I’d settle for a hard single up the middle. That’ll be fine, too.

Those that covered Ebron in Indianapolis and Detroit paint him as a brooding, ball-hungry, inconsistent, drop-prone malcontent that likes to block as little as he likes to play through injury.

Colts reporter Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan: “(The Colts) were really fed up with Ebron around early November this past season.

This wasn’t a guy who was on the injury report at all (in 2019). Maybe one time in training camp. Then all of the sudden he goes on injured reserve (ankle) after the Thursday night game against Houston (Nov. 20).

And it was a surprising move to the Colts. They didn’t think the injury was that severe at all.

A super rewind: Super Bowl X

By: Teresa Varley,

If you are in the mood to relive one of the greatest games in Steelers history, then we have the perfect game for you to watch. Super Bowl X. For those of you who remember it, this will be a stroll through memory lane. For those who never had the pleasure of watching it, here is a recap and then sit back and enjoy.

January 18, 1976

Super Bowl X

Steelers 21. Dallas Cowboys 17

Orange Bowl, Miami, Florida

In a game that pitted the glitzy offensive attack of the Dallas Cowboys against the blue-collar, grinding running attack and the Steel Curtain defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers, it would be the Steelers who would shine the brightest in Super Bowl X.

While everyone expected the Cowboys offense to be what everyone was talking about, it was Lynn Swann’s circus catch that will forever live in NFL Films highlight reels.

The Steelers got in an early 7-0 hole when Roger Staubach hit Drew Pearson for a 29-yard touchdown. But it didn’t take them long to get right back in it.
