JuJu takes a “team friendly” deal with a one-year, $8 million contract. It’s not as though he didn’t have options. Out of nowhere we hear that Steven Nelson asked to explore trade options and the Steelers granted the request.

The Steelers made a surprise acquisition last year, bringing in Eric Ebron. In 2017 it was Joe Haden. With little cap space in 2021, can Kevin Colbert work some magic to shore up some glaring weaknesses? What wasn’t a surprise was the signing of BJ Finney. He is a sorely-needed veteran presence for an offensive line that is disappearing before our …
 
We review six draft candidates for the offensive line, focusing on tackles. Sam Cosmi Alex Leatherwood Christian Darrisaw Tevin Jenkins Jalen Mayfield Liam Eichenberg Big Ben is locked and loaded for 2021. How does his new deal help the Steelers?

PButch is back to talk with us about how the Steelers should approach 2021 and beyond. Bet the farm on next year? Create cap space and write off next year? Art Rooney met with Ben on Tuesday and said “Ben assured me that he is committed to coming back to help us win, and I told Ben that we would like to have him back to help us win a championship. …
 
We interpret Kevin Colbert’s GM-speak, "As we sit here today, Ben is a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.” By March 17 all teams have to meet the salary cap. With an overhang of at least $14 million, what’s the best way for the Steelers to get under the limit? Art Rooney assures us that we’re not in rebuilding mode. What are the chances of the Stee…
 
In which, in honour of Black History Month, we discuss the early development of African-Canadian literature by covering newspapers, religious narratives, literary networks, and slave narratives from 1785 to 1855. Topics include the Underground Railroad, Loyalists, and myth-making in Canada. It's a big, but great conversation! --- Further Reading & …
 
Pouncey retires having achieved all-pro first team twice and second team three times. He was selected for the pro bowl nine times and was named to the Hall of Fame All-Decade team. Will this push Ben to make a different decision? JJ Watt parts ways with the Texans. Primanti Brothers said they would rename themselves “Watt Brothers” if he lands in P…
 
Tom Brady won his seventh Super Bowl ring, surpassing the Steeler's number of Lombardi Trophies. We recorded this session with about 3 minutes left in a championship that could have been used to anesthetize a patient undergoing surgery. Brady had three TD passes and won the MVP. Does Nick NOW believe TB is the GOAT? In some good new for Pittsburgh,…
 
In which we flash back to 1769 for a one-and-done-episode on 'The History of Emily Montague', a book often considered to be the very first Canadian novel - and it was written by a woman! How's that for being radical? We talk about 18th century feminism, the author's politics, what the book tells us about Canada at the time, and of course, whether t…
 
We send our condolences to the Rooney family who lost matriarch Patricia - wife of Dan Sr., mother of AR II - who passed away this week at 88. She was another pillar in a family who built and maintained a team with integrity and pride. Ben Roethlisberger: "I don’t care bout my pay at all this year!” With $40m of cap hit kicked down the road until i…
 
While Vance McDonald’s announces his retirement, Maurkice Pouncey’s situation remains up in the air. What does it mean for Ben’s future when one of his best friends on the team retires and the other is in flux? The coaching ranks are shoring up with Matt Canada being named offensive coordinator and long-tenured tight-ends expert, Alfredo Roberts, t…
 
In which we use Lionel Kearns' book 'Convergences' to finally discuss the other side of Canada! Topics include James Cook's arrival in British Columbia, contact with the Nuu-chah-nulth people of Nootka, and the importance of understanding history as a narrative. It's a big one and we love it! --- Further Reading: Francis, Daniel. "Jewitt, John Roge…
 
There were MAJOR changes in the upper coaching echelon. One change was long overdue. Another change needs an explanation and the third was a head-scratcher. Meanwhile the NFL seems to be sniffing around our vaunted front office. HANDS OFF! The Steelers will pick 24th in the 2021 draft. We’ll touch on it during this episode before launching into a d…
 
*Steelers suffer yet another embarrassing, early playoff exit at the hands of a heavy underdog. How, after going down 28-0, and somehow clawing back to within striking distance did they blow it in the end? Did Pouncey’s bad snap and Ben’s ensuing INT render the subsequent collapse inevitable? Why the defensive deference to Baker? Were TJ and Minka …
 
In which we cover the early life of famous Nova Scotian Joseph Howe; from his publishing endeavors that encouraged local talents to his 1835 libel trial that changed the game for free speech in Canada. All texts discussed are found below! --- Major Sources & Further Reading: Beck, J. Murray. “Howe, Joseph.” The Oxford Companion to Canadian History,…
 
Why was this a de facto victory for the Steelers? Although we dispel the thought of Mason as heir apparent to Ben, we talk about his best performance as a pro and how he fits into the Steeler future. Next men up: McDonald, Wormley, Williamson, Elliott, Rader What to make of this offensive line? Is Ray Ray McCloud regressing? Sideline roughhousing: …
 
With the Steelers languishing for the better part of three quarters, Ben Roethlisberger places a bomb on the outstretched hands of Diontae Johnson to complete a 39 yard touchdown that sparked a 21 point explosion over the three possessions to overcome what was looking like an insurmountable deficit. The defense was inspired by the offensive awakeni…
