Daily Links: Steelers Sweep Picks; Kenny & Big Ben Star




Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Kenny Pickett are starring together in a new car commercial for No. 1 Cochran.

🏈 Former Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell said that getting leaner might help Najee Harris.

“Sometimes it’s just the extra step. That’s all you need to take a run from two yards to about nine — just barely squeeze through the hole,” Bell said on Cam Heyward’s Not Just Football podcast.

Bell has made the same suggestion previously in May. Stating that he was 244 pounds as a rookie and dropped 20 pounds before the next season. Harris is currently listed at 242 pounds on the website.

“I think he’s a special runner. I think he can see the holes. I even think he knows how to set up his runs,” Bell said. “Some guys need a hole, and some guys know how to finesse a run and know how to set it up to make something out of nothing, He’s so good at that, and I think he can be even better if he’s a little lighter.”

🏈 released their preview for the Steelers-Texans game. Only one of the ten analysts has the Steelers losing to Houston.

🏈 WTAE: The Penn State All-Sports Museum is working on a mural to honor Franco Harris — but they need help from Steelers Nation. The artwork will be a photo mosaic made up of fan photos of the legendary Pittsburgh Steeler. Whether it’s from his time at Penn State, in the black and gold or any other appearance, they want your submission. It’s free, and the only requirement: you have to be in the photo with Franco. The goal is to get more than 7,500 pictures.

🏈 Mike Tomlin spoke with the Houston media about playing the Texans.

“I’m preparing to play the Houston Texans, man. They’re a new group that’s challenging. Not a lot to pull from in 2022,” Tomlin said.

🏈 Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud that they’re not just going to lay down to T.J. Watt and the Steelers’ defense.

You have to be aware of them, but at the same time, we have to have confidence in what we’re doing,” Stroud said when asked about going up against the Steelers defensive unit that features defensive end T.J. Watt. “They have to play us, too. We’re not just going to lay down and just submit because he’s the best player. We’re really good players on this side, too. Looking forward to competing against those guys, but I’ve got to do my part, which is just playing clean.”

Stroud is the first quarterback in NFL history to have over 900 passing yards, four pass touchdowns, and zero interceptions in his first three starts.

🏈 Along with Asante Samuel, former New England Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork has also commented on Ben Roethlisberger and Jerome Bettis’ statements that the Patriots cheated against the Steelers in the 2004 AFC Championship Game.

“Yes Washington wasn’t even on the team first off in 04! But I was and Keith trailer! Miss me with this BS 😂😂😂😂,” Wilfork wrote on X in reference to Bettis’ claim that defensive tackle Ted Washington went to the sideline to talk with the coaches after New England called a timeout and saw a signal made by the Steelers.

🎂 Happy Birthday to Steelers left tackle Dan Moore Jr., born on September 28, 1998 in Beaumont, Texas.

🎥 Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said on the New Heights Podcast he would have had some barbecue and beer for the boys if Cam Heyward texted him when the Steelers landed in Kansas City after an emergency landing from Las Vegas.
