1/25/2022
Chris Carter, NFL and NCAAF analyst, is joined by Dean Iampietro of WPXI-TV and Joshua Axelrod of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Pittsburgh Steelers do need a quarterback, but do they need Aaron Rodgers?

But when Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes are lighting up the NFL, do the Steelers need to do anything they can to reload at quarterback very soon?...

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler announced his retirement, but the Steelers are looking at Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham. What does this mean for Teryl Austin?

1/21/2022
Chris Carter, NFL and NCAAF analyst, is joined by Jenna Harner of WPXI-TV. The Pittsburgh Steelers have both Ahkello Withersoon and Joe Haden as unrestricted free agents and desperately need a top cornerback to be on the roster in 2022. Which of their own players should they re-sign to bring back in free agency, or should Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin try to go big and get J.C. Jackson in free agency?

Mason Rudolph, Dwayne Haskins Can Compete for Steelers QB Job, But Neither Are the Future

1/20/2022
Chris Carter, NFL and NCAAF analyst, is joined by Tony Serino of AFC North Talk. Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins spoke Wednesday with Pittsburgh Steelers media about the prospect of playing next year for the Steelers and earning the starting quarterback role. But both have a lot to prove before that ever becomes reality. Who replaces Ben Roethlisberger will most likely be a draft pick or a free agent in the near future, but it's clear Mike Tomlin wants his quarterback of the future to be...

Changes Needed In Steelers Offense / When did Ben Roethlisberger Call Plays? Fire Matt Canada?

1/18/2022
Chris Carter, NFL and NCAAF analyst, is joined by Wesley Uhler of Steeler Nation Radio. The Pittsburgh Steelers' offense was bad in 2021 and needs an overhaul. But what should be Mike Tomlin's focus to fix it? Does firing Matt Canada fit the plan? Or does he need a year with a better unit to show what he can do? Should Ben Roethlisberger have been allowed to call his own plays all season? Or is that myth? With Roethlisberger retiring, should there be an emphasis to prioritize finding his...

1/14/2022

Watt and the defensive playmakers changing the game. But there's also a sneaky way Ben Roethlisberger can tip the scales.

1/7/2022
Chris Carter, NFL and NCAAF analyst, is joined by Jenna Harner of WPXI-TV. T.J. Watt is one sack from tying Michael Strahan's NFL single season sack record, but there's plenty of reasons why he'll break that record when the Pittsburgh Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens Sunday whether Lamar Jackson or Tyler Huntley play. The Steelers need the Jacksonville Jaguars to upset the Indianapolis Colts, and that's happened in each of the past six seasons at least once. But can Trevor Lawrence make it...

Chris Carter, NFL and NCAAF analyst, is joined by Tony Serino of AFC North Talk. Najee Harris has over 1100 yards as a rookie and shows the ability to carry the offense after Ben Roethlisberger retires. That could make it much easier for the next quarterback, which might be exactly what Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers need. That would allow them to avoid big name quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson who would take up a huge chunk of the salary cap, and allow the team to...
