The Steelers were dominant in a win over the Miami Dolphins to kick off their quest for a seventh Super Bowl win.
While the team gets ready to head to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Saturday, Jan. 14th.
What a difference
Steeler Nation got their first look at what Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger can do together on a playoff football field. And it was marvelous. Last year at this point, going into this particular game Brown was ruled out with a concussion and Bell and DeAngelo Williams were already sidelined.

Teresa Varley talked to Brown about what it means to have the gang back together and all healthy for this playoff run.
"“I am grateful, in a better state than I was last year. That’s what it’s all about. I am grateful to be here, available for my team and ready to go.” – Antonio Brown"
I’m grateful as well. This is what it’s all about.
Remember Martavis Bryant? He’s still suspended in case you were wondering. He spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Jacob Feldman about what he’s been doing during his suspension and his expectations for his return to the team.
There’s no guarantee he gets released by the league or that the Steelers organization would have him back. It’s a good interview to see where he’s at at this point in his life but it’s not going to give you warm and fuzzy feelings about a contrite guy who’s ready to prove to everyone how sorry he is.
Kinda always knew I’d end up your ex-girlfriend
Todd Haley’s breakup from the Kansas City Chiefs was messy and very public. In the last five years since he’s been in Pittsburgh, however, he’s basically reinvented himself as a guy that has put together one of the most prolific offenses in the league.
Sure the major components of guys like Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown were already here when he arrived and ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler talks about how Haley reflects talk of head coaching opportunities and keeps his focus on the task at hand.
What a difference a few years makes here. Haley was regarded much different after leaving Kansas City as well as arriving in Pittsburgh than he is now. Now he’d be regarded as one of the top candidates for a head coaching position around the league.
