Come join the virtual party for some conversation about your Steelers and a few random items

With the off season comes debate and this week started off with a bang or was it a dud? With all the debate over the signing of a former 1st round pick to a futures contract at least we know that the passion for our Steelers runs strong. However, we won’t debate the merits of the signing here as BTSC has already seen about 232,457 and a half comments on the topic, so I think everyone’s position is clear.

Anyway, the polar vortex has made it’s way down to southern Ontario, and it is cold. Not stupid cold, mind you, but cold enough that if you haven’t started your ODR, now is the perfect time. What? You don’t know what an ODR is? You live in Pittsburgh and you call yourself a Pens fan?? Come on...

  1. Last week I gave you the power to be Kevin Colbert for a day to do one thing on the offensive side of the ball. This week, do your thing on the defensive side of the ball. One day, one choice, keep it realistic.
  2. With the announcement by the Vanimal of his retirement, what changes do you think the future holds for the TE group next year? A high draft choice? An elevated role for Rader or Gentry? Does Jessie James make a return? Something else?
  3. Call your retirement shots now... Who retires before the 2021 season starts? Ben Roethlisberger? Maurkice Pouncey? Alejandro Villanueva?
  4. This week you have likely seen footage of Steeler playoff victories, or even Super Bowl wins. Give us your favorite memory.
  5. Most of you surely know about Big Ben’s foundation and the relationship with the police and their canine units. While I did not grow up a dog lover, we are on dog No. 2 here in the canuck household. Are you a dog lover? If not, what about other pets? Tell us about your furry (or not) friend.
