The Pittsburgh Steelers have sustained success as a fixture organization for many years. However, that wasn’t the case last year when the team finished 8-8 while division rival Baltimore Ravens went on to win the Super Bowl. It was a change of scenery, to say the least. During the Steelers playoff appearances during the 2000s, they defeated the Ravens three times.
This prompted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to confess that he wasn’t happy with the team’s performance last season, stating that another “.500 effort” won’t cut it.
Before injuries derailed Pittsburgh’s season, they were 6-3. A three game losing skid soon followed after Roethlisberger went down with a shoulder injury, thrusting Pittsburgh out of contention.
With the loss of former defensive player of the year James Harrison and acquisitions of Jarvis Jones and Le’Veon Bell, only one question still remains. Do the Pittsburgh Steelers have another title run left in them?
