Welcome to the Steelers Afternoon Drive, our new daily podcast featuring all the latest Steelers news.
Nick Farabaugh joins Zachary Smith to discuss all things Pittsburgh Steelers. Wide receiver George Pickens posted a since deleted cryptic message on his Instagram story saying “Free me” and scrubbed his profile of anything Steelers related. He also unfollowed the team account and several members of the team. Seemingly growing frustrated following back-to-back weeks of down production, is there cause for concern or is this a bunch of nothing? The Steelers won on Thursday Night Football over the Tennessee Titans with some more 4th quarter heroics. Kenny Pickett connected with Diontae Johnson for the first time on what was a game-winning touchdown. Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren both ran well behind an offensive line boasting a new right tackle in the form of Broderick Jones. On the defensive side of the ball Joey Porter Jr. more than held his own against DeAndre Hopkins. TJ Watt and Alex Highsmith both registered sacks and the team limited Derrick Henry reasonably well, even after losing linebacker Cole Holcomb to a season-ending knee injury. How did we feel like things went in the first game with Matt Canada on the sidelines? Let’s go for another Steelers Afternoon Drive and talk about it!
