17. Pittsburgh Steelers
Recap: I am very hesitant to call the Steelers victims of anything after the majority of their history is built on hurting other players and highlighting the exploits of guys like James Harrison. Essentially, the Steelers are the reason why the NFL throws flags every time you breathe too hard on a QB. They are the epitome of dirty players.
However, Mason Rudolph absolutely got assaulted by Myles Garrett and I don’t care if he pulled on his facemask a little bit. The two things aren’t equal, if you swung at me and I hit you in the head with a brick, would you tell the cop it was all fair and square?
Nope, and I would be in jail so it isn’t the same thing.
Notes from the actual game? Mason Rudolph is bad.
Outlook: The Steelers were 0-4 and went all in on Minkah Fitzpatrick who is really good, but was it worth it? Now you are looking at a team with a broken QB and no quarterback of the future that traded away their first round pick in 2020.
That shoe is going to fall soon and the Steelers better hope that they have created a quarterback-proof team or else they will end up dreaming to be in that 9-7 situation that the Titans found themselves in year after year.
