For the Steelers, it’s long been a frustrating tale of two units -- offense and defense. During the best of times for the offense, the defense was in tatters and full of holes. Swiss cheese, instead of the Steel Curtain. When the defense shined last season, the offense crumbled, along with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s throwing elbow. But for the first time in a long time, both sides of the football appear to be in nearly top form for the 2020 season. I give you all the best reasons why the 2020 Steelers could be far greater than the sum of its parts, overperforming all expectations, in this edition of the Steelers Update Podcast. I also explain why it could be now or never for this group of Steelers. A shrinking NFL salary cap for 2021 – another casualty of the coronavirus – could see to that. But for now, it could be one shining season for your Steelers. What a gift at what time. When we all need it. Pittsburgh would revel in it after years of uncharacteristic disappointments from their beloved football team. A truly special – and highly unusual -- season awaits. Enjoy it, Steelers fans!
