BTSC’s random-thought renegade is back with his bizarre look at the Steelers week that was.

The Steelers season ended weeks ago, but there’s plenty of news coming out of the Steel City. BTSC continues their recap of the past week’s events for our readers. But where they went wrong was asking the one narcissistic writer that would put a bizarre spin on it to do it. So, let’s all take a look at a BAD week in the ‘burgh together.


Monday 3/21

I consider Joe Gordon and Tony Parisi to be two of the most important pistons in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ all-time engine. Think Bill Nun and his impact on the team, this dynamic duo had impact in a different manner, but vital all the same. It’s tremendous and appropriate that Joe and Tony are being honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Yawn. But one less destination for Baker Mayfield. I’m desperate for that dude to add to mistakes by the lake.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that Dobbs may not have a spot in the Steelers’ quarterback room. I wish Josh the best. For those of you that want Dobbs on the coaching staff, he might not be ready to stop chasing his NFL dream. Plus, his brain has way too much pertinent knowledge to stay in football.

If the Steelers’ new return man was a professional baseball player in the MLB, his walkup music would either be by Kid Rock or “Dueling Banjos”. But this kid is going to be a fan favorite. Everybody in Steel City is going to know the name Gunner Olszewski. They won’t be able to pronounce it even a remotely correct manner, but they will indeed know it.

There were others there at the Pitt pro day, maybe they were late. Or maybe they stopped at Get Go for a cup of joe. But understand that it wasn’t a great undertaking to attend Kenny Pickett’s pro day for Mike Tomlin’s staff. Just walk down the hall. So, there’s nothing to Tomlin and company’s presence,


Tuesday 3/15

Could the Steelers bring back a camp phenom that they didn’t protect? Interesting.

Other people are smiling too. Great analysis, PFF. Tomlin has a smile on his face during the workout of one of the top quarterbacks in the draft. It’s official, they must be trading up to draft him. I smile when I’m at my mother-in-law’s house, it doesn’t mean that I’m enjoying it.


Wednesday 3/23

Even in Spanish, Mary Kay Cabot is full of mularkey and I’m not talking Mike. Of course, the black and gold would look at any quarterback that they wouldn’t have to pay for if it would improve their team. This particular player would not, however.

Throwing up in my mouth would be the best-case scenario after looking at this picture.

I don’t care where Al Michaels broadcasts from, as long as Al Michaels is calling a game. Amazon didn’t have to give up the rights to a cartoon in the same manner that NBC surrendered the rights to Oswald the Rabbit to ABC and Disney to acquire him. Maybe a Tom Clancy book and a box of Ramen, but no rabbit.

I’ve never seen a plethora of deals like this. who’s next?

You have an expense account and a need for a QB. Might as well go see everybody. Next week, the Steelers top brass are expected to attend workouts for Steamin’ Willie Beamon, Shane Falco, Paul Blake, Lance Harbour and Sunshine Ronnie Bass.


Thursday 3/24

Pittsburgh needs to host the draft. No jokes. This just needs to happen.


Friday 3/25

Man, the fans and media were absolutely freaking out that this deal wasn’t going to happen. If patience is a virtue, we’ve got a ton of Quik Rabbits in the Burgh.


This was the significant week that was for the Steelers, mixed-in with my black-and-gold loving life. I’m sure next week will be full of Steelers happenings as well, so we’ll have to do this again. Have a great week, but better yet have a BAD one.
