Steelers Outpost Podcast: Steelers Emerging Players Shuffling the Deck?

At this time of year, all things are possible for all 32 teams in the NFL. As we watch Steeler training camp, there are some players who are playing above the line and may play roles beyond special teams. OlaAdeniyi has been dominant against the second team. He has come down to Earth a bit when he engaged with the first team, but there is something to his game...something to his effort... that seems to spell depth at edge rusher. Out of nowhere comes Kameron Kelly, Dallas Cowboy and AAF castoff. Kelly started 40 games for San Diego State, over that span he started at three different positions — slot cornerback, free safety, and boundary cornerback, Interestingly during his time with the San Diego Fleet in the AAF, Kelly played wide receiver. His window of opportunity presented itself wit Sean Davis taking the sideline with an injury Mike Tomlin pits Devin Bush and Benny Snell in backs-on-backers with both players flashing some tantalizing possibilities. Not to be outdone, a couple of silverbacks reared up in camp this week with Cam Heyward and Al Villanueva getting into a tussle. Is this a sign of the motivation permeating the entire lineup? Many of the key veterans are getting spelled this week as Tomlin seems to be planning to deliver an intact starting lineup for the first game of the season. Apparently Ben is in love with football again, more evidence that this team is focused on playing up to its potential in 2019. Will Rudolph or Dobbs emerge as the #2 QB and does Devlin Hodges have a chance to make this roster?

Steelers Outpost Podcast: Steelers Outpost Mad As Hell About Madden

The Madden ratings are out and Ben's rating is 85 placing him as the #9 QB behind even Matt Ryan and and Phillip Rivers. We debate whether these ratings matter. You can imagine the Baby Boomer cannot understand this millennial concern. Mike Tomlin's interviewing prowess is underrated. He exceeds Belichick's brevity of factual information by delivering his own poetic perspectives. Although he says almost nothing, Mike opens up the house-cleaning effected by the Steelers this year. YOU ARE GOD! You are capable of raising the dead from the grade or overcome the debilitations of age and add one former Steeler to this year's team. Who do you resurrect? @NeilCoolong asks, which of these has the highest probability of occurring in 2019: Boswell > 88 percent FGs Dupree > 6 sacks Ben < 9 INTs Steelers > 10 wins We put our odds on it. Let us know what you think. "Real" football starts this week with the Steelers training camp opening this Friday, July 26.

Steelers Outpost Podcast: Steelers Rotating Running Backs

It's Father's Day so what a great time to relive Tom's failings as a parent and how Nick had to develop his passion for the Steelers on his own, like a lonely orphan, abandoned to his own devices and Nintendo 64.The Steelers seem to have the deepest contingent of running backs in years.  We talk about how the Steelers may allocate the workload to optimize results.Life isn't fair. The NFL certainly isn't.  But it's a business. Still, when you compare the productivity-to-cost ratio of certain players under their first contracts to what some less-productive veterans receive, you have to wonder where the justice is. In a related matter, what about the way the Steelers recently dealt with Chris Boswell?Culture versus Strategy?  Which is a more important facet to emphasize for a coach?  Is game planning, or constructing the appropriate environment more conducive to winning games?
