Welcome to the Steelers Afternoon Drive, our new daily podcast featuring all the latest Steelers news and analysis.

Alan Saunders and Zachary Smith discuss all things Pittsburgh Steelers on Steelers Afternoon Drive. On today’s episode, Nick Farabaugh filled in for Zach to discuss the reaction to the Steelers’ offseason so far, with a fanbase that seems to be split between positivity and negativity.

Once again, Omar Khan’s offseason moves have been well received, but the team’s Las Vegas win total is 2.5 wins lower than they accomplished a year ago. What gives, and which part of the fanbase is closer to correct? Alan and Nick dove in on that topic, and also talked about new cornerback signing Anthony Averett, and how the team might fill its final roster spots.

Last year was more efficient but still mediocre with 51 catches on 87 targets for 717yds and 5 TD’s. Roman Wilson will surpass DJ’s production in his rookie year. Russell Wilson beat Mahomes last year and Josh Allen so why can’t we win a championship? Pickens and Wilson are better than Sutton and Jeudy. Our TE and RB room are better and so is our… Read more »

as a true Steelers fan, I already know that all the sports media groups and Steelers haters with tier rat poison have 0 expectation for the Steelers in 2024 so keep sleeping on the Steelers and the Steelers can also fly under the radar
