Once again a game in the Steelers schedule has been postponed due to a COVID outbreak within another organization, which could be said as a conspiracy but it is legit.

Be as it may, the game against the Ravens would’ve been a Thanksgiving Day Classic like all games in the rivalry prior, it was most likely for the AFC North Championship if the Steelers came out victorious, but we have to wait until Tuesday pending more COVID Test results.

Considering the many challenges that have come across the Steelers way since last season ended and have come-back strong with the current 10-0 start, there’s a lot of things the Steelers are thankful for this year. As a side-note, I wish all of you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving and asking to stay safe throughout the hard and troubled times we’re all facing, I experienced a COVID test and a 3-day strict quarantine this past week on the side of precaution due to an illness unrelated to the pandemic.

Here are the 6 things the Steelers are thankful for; as an honorable mention, we’re thankful we haven’t been screwed out of a coin-toss since 1998.

A strong force overseas and here in America

Here at Still Curtain and FanSided, we support the United States Military and other allied militaries internationally for protecting us and giving us the freedom to live freely providing we remain disciplined.

Soldiers and other personnel from across the world are in battles and participating in missions to guard our country against terroristic harm and we thank them for their sacrifices. In the midst of the pandemic, we also thank the scientists, government officials, doctors, and nurses for their hard work to solve the problems that have arisen from the pandemic and figuring out how to put an end to the chaos that the virus has caused via a new vaccine.

Players of the past like Brett Kiesel, Hines Ward, and Troy Polamalu and players of the present like Ben, James Conner, and Chase Claypool have expressed their appreciation and gratitude toward the military and those in emergency management. We are thankful for Alejandro Villanueva for the time he devoted away to be apart of the United States Army on his own accord.
