The Steelers players head into the offseason for recovery and the coaches head out to prepare for free agency and the draft.
Steelers season never truly ends for Steeler Nation so while the offseason starts to heat up we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Monday, Feb. 15th.
Top plays of 2015
There were many memorable moments from the Steelers’ 2015 season. Mike Prisuta listed his top 10 plays from the season with Le’Veon Bell‘s walk-off touchdown topping the list. On a Monday night game in San Diego the Steelers were down 20-17 and had a first-and-goal from the 1-yard line with five seconds left in regulation.

Instead of going for a potential game-tying field goal Tomlin went for the win and had Bell lined up in the Wildcat formation getting a direct snap. Bell scored and the Steelers won 24-20.
The Steelers ended up needing that AFC win when their playoff spot came down to the wire and were able to clinch with a New York Jets loss in Week 17 thanks for the their more favorable AFC record.
Big year for Big Dan
Chris Adamski of the Trib suggests that this offseason is an important one for Daniel McCullers. With Steve McLendon scheduled to become a free agent in March, the large-framed McCullers could be in a position to take over the nose tackle position.
Big Dan has a big upside if he can get the techniques down. He’s enormous at 6’7” and weighs between 350-400 pounds. Big Dan can be a big asset to the line if McLendon leaves and if he can use his big frame effectively.
Shear Da Beard
Former Steelers defensive lineman Brett Keisel held the sixth annual Shear Da Beard charity event last week where he raised money for the cancer programs at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh UMPC. The event was held at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille in Warrendale and Keisel had his iconic beard shaved by friends and former teammates.
