There is always something to talk about when it comes to the black-and-gold!

It’s Friday again, so it’s time for the six pack of questions. It seems as if Jeff and Dave come to a consensus in cutting to the chase...

This week, I, Dave, will be tasked with the questions up for discussion.

The rules are still the same...

Quick rundown of the ground rules.

  • I’ll ask at least four questions strictly related to the Steelers.
  • The rest of the questions could be about anything.
  • Be respectful.
  • Have fun talking about the Black-and-gold.

Procedural Note: Since the title feature has gone away, please feel free to leave your usual title as the first line of your response and even bold it if you can for the ease of others.

So here we go! With the formalities out of the way, it’s time to jump on in. Hopefully this party is exactly what you’re looking for on a Friday night. Here goes:

1. The 2020 NFL regular season is now officially underway! Did you watch any of last night’s game between the Texans and Chiefs? Was the lack of a preseason apparent in the product on the field?

2. Last night there were a limited number of fans in the stadium. Do you think having any fans, even if it is a small number, will help players feel that it is more like a game? (In other words, how import is it for players to be “playing for the crowd”?)

3. How do you feel about having to wait the extra day to see the Steelers play in Week 1? Are you glad it’s a national game, or will having to wait through all the other games on Sunday get to you specifically because it’s the first week?

4. Last season Vince Williams played a much more limited number of snaps because he was not on the field for a lot of obvious passing situations. Do you think the Steelers do it again this year? Although he’s unlikely to be on the field when the Steelers are in dime, do you think they replace him in their nickle packages?

5. What are your expectations for Ben Roethlisberger in his first game back? (Projected stats are encouraged, but not necessary)

6. Where are you watching Monday’s game, and who are you watching with?

Stay safe out there!

And it wouldn’t be a Friday night unless we said...

HERE WE GO STEELERS!
