Steelers season is finally here and we have a date in Washington on Monday night to officially kick things off.
While the team game plans for to face Kirk Cousins and Josh Norman we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Thursday, Sept. 8th.
No, you’re great
Seems like we’re having an old-fashioned quarterback love-fest the past couple of days. First Steelers Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw declared that Ben Roethlisberger was the top quarterback in all of the land and he one he’d take above all others.
Now Ben himself is too humble to accept such a lofty title and deferred to another gun slinger. Perhaps he thought he needed a self-esteem boost as he’s about to serve his four-game suspension for deflated balls but Ben declared that Tom Brady is the true top quarterback in all of the seven kingdoms.
It’s all a bit too much for me to stomach. Let’s just get the games going already, can we?
The matchup between receiver Antonio Brown and cornerback Josh Norman will certainly be entertaining to see. But what is most intriguing about this matchup is whether or not Norman could get into Brown’s head like how he scrapped with Giants receiver Odell Beckham last season as reminded by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
No one can deny the talent and work ethic for Antonio Brown but what also won’t be deniable will be the amount of swagger and attitude Norman will bring into this game now that he’s the highest paid defensive back in the league.
Brown should be able to keep his composure and Norman will most likely follow the path of the rest of the overpriced free agents Washington just can’t help themselves from signing each offseason.
Wax on, wax off
He told you that Mr. Miyagi was taking care of him and that he won’t be sidelined for the first game of the 2016 season and true to form Cam Heyward participated in Steelers practice on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury last week.
Heyward told Teresa Varley he doesn’t see any reason that would keep him out of Monday night’s game against Washington.
I’m not saying that Cam Heyward is Wolverine I’m just saying that I’ve never seen Heyward and Wolverine in the same place at the same time.
