The weather is warm, the Pittsburgh Pirates are streaking, and it's getting even closer to football season.
Steelers OTAs have also heated up, exemplified by a scuffle earlier this week between defensive linemen Clifton Geathers and the Steelers offensive line. In this edition of "What's Hot", hosts Bryan DeArdo and Chris Carter will discuss the incident-the second one involving Geathers and the Steelers O-line- and discuss whether or not these skirmishes are good for the team.
The show will also discuss the recent comments of defensive back Shamarko Thomas, who recently said that the secondary will need to "lay the licks" for it to be a feared unit in 2015. Speaking of units, NFL.com recently ranked every current NFL backfield as well as the greatest quarterback franchises in league history. Find out where the Steelers landed in each ranking, as well as whether or not their rankings were accurate.
Speaking of units, there's one unit that hasn't garnered many headlines although it might be the best unit on the team. Find out which unit that is, and why their success is so vital to the Steelers' overall success in 2015.
Last but not least, the hosts will debate between who they'd rather have starting for their team between Terry Bradshaw and Tom Brady in this week's installment of "Select a Steeler". '
