The Steelers seemed poised for success in 2020, but there are still a few questions that must be answered if the team wants to succeed

The Steelers have set themselves up for success in 2021. With a veteran filed roster and a tested starter at almost any position, the Steelers should be contenders for the playoffs and potentially even the Super Bowl. Even with the talent in place, the Steelers still have a lot of question marks going into the season that will determine their success.

Every team every season has questions that will define their season. Will this rookie be able to start, can this injured veteran return to form, and can all of these personalities gel together? No matter how talented the roster is, a team will always have question marks entering into the season.

The Steelers are no different this year. Even with the amount of returning starters, there are some potential pitfalls and questions that could lead to a disappointing 2021. Some broad questions are always pertinent, like can the starters say healthy. No team is ready to lose a plethora of starters to injury, and most teams wouldn’t be able to overcome such difficulty if it did happen.

With the Steelers though, obvious questions like can this player return to form, or can these two players work together are far more important. With this year likely being the final year of the Steelers super bowl window, these questions must be answered, and ideally answered with a positive result. If not, the Steelers may be in for a disappointing 2021. With all that said, here are the five questions that will determine the Steelers season.
