Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback legends Ben Roethlisberger and Terry Bradshaw will be a part of The Great Dad Challenge this week in Oklahoma. Blake Brewer, the founder of the event, says it’s a free week-long challenge designed to help dads become more focused, resilient, and encouraging.
“Each day, dads will wake up, and in their inbox, they will have a new challenge for the day, all coming from the top experts in the country. And then they will have the opportunity to jump on live with an NFL dad like Terry Bradshaw, Steve Largent, Ben Roethlisberger, Brad Johnson, and Usama Young. Each of those guys will be talking about their fatherhood journey,” Brewer said.
🏈 CBS Sports: Cody Benjamin predicts that the Steelers and Ravens will square off on Thanksgiving in 2023.
“Rivalries always do well on holidays, and Lamar Jackson will likely be trying to earn his late-season keep as the newly paid face of the Ravens, while the Steelers always provide an underrated late-year fight,” Benjamin wrote.
🏈 NBC Sports: Peter King ranked the Steelers 16th in his early assessment power rankings.
“NFL position group with the most surprising 2023 makeover: the Steelers’ secondary, with corners Patrick Peterson and Joey Porter Jr. and safety Keanu Neal. Every one of those is a double take,” King wrote.
🏈 Bleacher Report: Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report thinks quarterback Tanner Morgan has the most likely chance to make the Steelers’ roster as an undrafted free agent.
“Pittsburgh added former Minnesota quarterback Tanner Morgan to its roster after the draft. History suggests that he’ll have a good chance to make the final 53. The Steelers have traditionally carried three QBs on the active roster, as they did last year with Pickett, Trubisky and Mason Rudolph,” Knox wrote.
📅 Hall of Fame former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher turns 66 on Monday. Born on May 8, 1957 in Crafton, Pennsylvania, Cowher played basketball and ran track in addition to playing football at Carlynton High School. He matriculated to NC State, where he was a star linebacker and team captain.
Cowher went undrafted in 1979 and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he caught on as a reserve linebacker and special teamer. In 1980, he was released by Philadelphia and signed with the Cleveland Browns, spending three years there. He returned to Philadelphia for the 1983 and 1984 seasons.
In 1985, Cowher’s old Cleveland defensive coordinator Marty Schottenheimer, another Western Pennsylvania native and now the head coach of the Browns, hired him as special teams coach. He was promoted to defensive backs coach in 1987, then went with Schottenheimer to Kansas City as defensive coordinator in 1989.
The Steelers hired Cowher as the 15th head coaching team history in 1992, succeeding Hall of Famer Chuck Noll. Cowher coached in Pittsburgh for 15 seasons, posting a 149-90-1 regular season record and winning Super Bowl XL in 2005.
Cowher was inducted into the Steelers Hall of Honor in 2019 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2020.
