Welcome to September!

I’m headed to State College tonight — not for the Pitt/PSU game — but to rep Poured in PA at the Brewers of Pennsylvania Mid-Atlantic Symposium.

Back in time Friday for our podcast recording with Beer Busters (You’re invited!), then hopping on the turnpike Saturday for a baby shower (mine), then turning around and heading back to see if I can actually watch the Steelers game with the CBS All Access app.

Steelers Week 1: Cheers, Jeers, & Fears

by: Jimi The Intern
September 6, 2017

#HereWeGo!

The regular season is finally upon us, and it’s time to focus on real football.

Pittsburgh comes into the season with lofty goals, including two recent signings that they hope help improve the team immediately.

Joe Haden and Vance McDonald both came to the Steel City in the past week and look to see significant time on the field.

Haden is the big get here. He is a guy who can take an okay defense to one of the best in the league.

We won’t get a good idea of what this team has in their week one match against the Browns, and it could seem like a fifth preseason match by the time we get to the fourth quarter.

Here are my first cheers, jeers, and fears of the regular season.

Cheers

Pittsburgh comes into the season with the healthiest, most eligible roster they have had in years.

It will be the first time that the Bell, Brown, Ben, and Bryant will be on the same field in over a year. How long that will last still remains to be seen.

If it’s all 16 games, this team could take the number one seed into the post season.

My cheers for this week are having all of these guys on the field at the same time. While it’s a good start to be healthy, there are still question marks looming over this team as 2017 gets underway.


Jeers

Where to Watch Steelers Games during Blackouts [Weeks 1, 2, 5, 7 & 17]

My jeers are not being able to watch the game from the couch.

That’s right, the Steelers opening game of the 2017 season will not be seen on local television because of the damn Ravens.

I feel like I’m yelling at a wall now, but what the hell, Goodell? This is Pennsylvania, we like the Steelers, not the Ravens.

This is less football-related and more NFL logistics related.

Sara already aired out our frustrations in a post early this week (see above). She’s speaking for all of us when she says it’s about damn time to fix this issue.


Fears

Embed from Getty Images

At the beginning of the week, I thought my fears for the opening game were going to be regarding our secondary.

They are young, inexperienced and still not up to snuff to compete with the best. Now, with the addition of a player like Joe Haden, one weakness has already improved.

I still think that this is the weakest part of the team because we don’t know exactly how Haden is going to adjust.

Getting out of Cleveland has to be good for the soul, though, right?

Our corners and safeties still worry me a good bit, although I can rest a little easier when the defense is on the field.


Prediction

With that said, if you’re going to break in a new cornerback, the Browns might be the perfect team to do it against.

They are starting a rookie QB with a depleted wide receiver core. They can run the ball fairly well, but our front seven is up to the task.

It’s also good because it gives the offense a chance to gel and find their form. Bell will see his first action of the season and Martavis Bryant will get his first real taste of football in over a year.

Big Ben throws two touchdowns, one to Bryant and one to AB. Bell will back it up with a pair of his own late to seal the deal for the first win of the season.

Pittsburgh wins 28-10.
