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, Apr. 18th.

Clutch

When you think of clutch quarterbacks who is the first one to come to mind? If you’re former NFL quarterback David Carr, you’d think of Ben Roethlisberger third. Carr joined the NFL Network for a segment where he ranked the top three most clutch quarterbacks in the league right now.

Carr ranked Eli Manning and Tom Brady above Roethlisberger in terms of clutchness. It is appropriate to note that Carr ranks as having been sacked the most times in a single season when he was sacked 72 times in the 2002 season while under center for the Houston Texans. Ouch.

There’s no place like Heinz Field for the holidays

The Steelers’ 2016 schedule was announced last week and it was revealed that we’ll be spending our holiday season watching the Steelers as they are scheduled for games on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. Not everyone was thrilled with the news.

James Harrison took to Instagram to express his feelings about working during the holidays. Perhaps they’ll get time and a half?

Peezy a Cowboy?

As we inch closer and close to the NFL Draft Teresa Varley has more draft tales from some of your favorite former Steelers players. Former Steelers linebacker and current outside linebackers coach Joey Porter tells Varley about how had expected to be drafted by the Dallas Cowboys.

Porter explains that the Cowboys had even gone as far as given him a cell phone to prepare him for the phone call to tell him they had selected him in the second round of the 1999 NFL Draft. Instead they called to request the phone back and the Steelers took Porter in the third round. The rest is Steelers history.
