The Steelers are officially on summer vacation as the offseason workout program wrapped up and they won’t come back together until reporting to training camp later this month.
Steelers season never really ends for Steeler nation so while the Steelers players get their minds and bodies right to embark on the 2016 regular season 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, July 11th.
You the real MVP
There’s no denying the fire power that a player like Antonio Brown brings to the Steelers offense. He’s been voted as the Steelers’ team MVP multiple times, he’s the highest rated fantasy wide receiver this year, he’s up for an ESPY for best NFL player, he’s an unstoppable force on the field.
Ray Fittipaldo of the PPG suggests that another player besides Brown is actually the best player on the Steelers team. Ben Roethlisberger is the irrefutable leader of the offense and the team and without him Brown clearly has suffered.

Brown has grabbed only one 100-yard game in the six games he’s played in without Roethlisberger since 2011. The best part of this is that they’re both ours. Their chemistry is undeniable and we get to watch them in their primes. Lucky us!
Can they not screw it up this time?
The knights of the AFC North ESPN round table were at it again and this time Bengals writer Coley Harvey asks the group if Cincinnati can finally play with the discipline that head coach Marvin Lewis demands and stay out of their own way to finally attain that elusive playoff victory.
Um, no. First off, does Marvin Lewis demand discipline from his players? The Bengals? Does he really? This would be news. If I was part of this discussion I would not be able to get passed this particular point. Still can’t.
This summer the Steelers officially made Chris Boswell the man as far as the kicking game is concerned. Steelers Wire’s Simon Chester describes how Boswell is spending his summer preparing to resume that role and improve upon his first season.
He’s currently training in Daytona Beach, Florida, attending basically kickers camp and focusing on his distance. That’s a good plan on account of the fact that he’ll primarily be kicking field goals as the team will be going for two all the time after scoring touchdowns.
