🏈 Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph reflected on this past season on social media.

“2023. Forever grateful to have been given an opportunity to take the field again as a Pittsburgh Steeler. God sure works in mysterious ways. There is no feeling on planet earth that rivals the thrill of victory alongside dear friends & teammates—Here’s to 2024,” Rudolph wrote.

🏈 Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward is tired of quarterbacks getting special treatment on run plays. Myles Jack was called for a controversial late hit on Josh Allen during the Steelers-Bills game. Earlier in the game, Allen slowed down as if he was going to slide and ended up running for a 52-yard touchdown.

“If a QB turns on the gears and is running full tilt, he shouldn’t be given the clearance to just make a decision right then and there to either, trick the ref or trick the team. I think it’s a load of crap,”  Heyward said.


🏈 Former Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell thinks the Steelers should not give up a first-round pick for Chicago Bears  quarterback Justin Fields. There’s speculation that Fields could be dealt this offseason. ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. believes the Bears can get a first-round pick from the Falcons in exchange for Fields.

“hell no, nothin against Justin Fields tho .. he’s just not the answer, TRUST ME,” Bell wrote on X.

🏈 Steelers left guard Isaac Seumalo believes the Steelers need to have stability at the quarterback position.

“The quarterback situation needs to be figured out. That’s how the NFL is. We need to have some solidarity there, one way or another, wherever it goes. You can’t win in the NFL without that,” Seumalo told Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

🎂 Happy Birthday to former Steelers strong safety Terrell Edmunds, born on January 20, 1997 in Danville, Virginia. Edmunds was solid during his five seasons in Pittsburgh, but never really stood out as a playmaker. Edmunds signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles in March of 2023, but he didn’t last long in Philadelphia as he was traded to the Tennessee Titans along with a fifth-round pick and a sixth-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft for safety Kevin Byard. Edmunds had a key interception in the Titans’ 28-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 18, which clinched a playoff berth for the Steelers.

🎥 On this day in 1980, the Steelers defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 31-19, in Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. It was the final Super Bowl title of the Super Steelers era of the 1970s, four championships in six years. Terry Bradshaw was Super Bowl MVP for the second consecutive year.
