These Steelers are on the team’s nice list after this season
By Andrew Falce
While the Steelers haven’t had the season that they wanted, they have seen some good performances from these players on their nice list.
The Steelers season has been a disappointment. While struggles were likely given the amount of change this team went through, the consistent failure to field competitive teams and an utter lack of change despite challenges popped up. It has been a rough season all around, and fans are likely looking forward to moving past in 2023.
That said, not everything has been a disaster for this team. While the overall results have been less than stellar, there have been some individual performances that have stood out. These players stepped up to the plate and have earned their keep. Because of their successes, these players have found their way onto the Steelers nice list this Holiday season.
George Pickens has been the guy
Taken in the second round of the draft, the Steelers had high expectations for George Pickens from the start of the season. Add in his incredible training camp and it looked like Pittsburgh had stolen Pickens. He had a slow start to the season, but his play has picked up almost every week since the early portion of the year, and he looks like the real deal.
Despite a lone outburst, the Steelers need to be thrilled with the potential superstar that they have in Pickens. His hands and body control are unmatched, and his route running is getting better every game. He has top-receiver potential and is already playing like the best receiver on this team. He has been incredible for a rookie that missed most of his final season in school, and the sky is the limit for this rookie.
