With the 13-3 Steelers home looking to avenge the Week 5 loss against the Jaguars. The faculty and staff at BTSC filled out report cards based on the team’s performance. Join us and see just how well they graded out.

Offense: C

The play calling was sketchy and they couldn't score early. Sure they scored a ton, but they needed to do it early.

Valedictorian: Ben Roethlisberger

Honor Roll: Antonio Brown, Vance McDonald

Detention: Todd Haley, Alejandro Villanueva, JuJu Smith-Schuster

Defense: F

Pitiful performance. They let T.J. Yeldon kill them on third down after third down. They were horrendous.

Valedictorian: None

Honor Roll: None

Detention: Keith Butler and the entire defense

Overall: F

Coaching was suspect. They looked past this team. Mike Mitchell may have said it weeks ago, but Bell did it yesterday. They had many opportunities to come back and wilted in crunch time. The only hope is that this loss sticks with them and gets them over the top in 2018-19.
