Pittsburgh Steelers - Game Odds and Schedule

There are 32 franchises in the NFL, but only a handful are recognized as one of the league’s signature teams. The Pittsburgh Steelers are on that very short list. Since the turn of the century alone, the Steelers have made it to the postseason 12 times. They came up just short in their quest for the playoffs the last two seasons, but we can fully expect the club to be in the running once again.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is looking for a big bounce back after an injury-shortened campaign, while linebacker T.J. Watt leads the way on defense and remains a very unwelcome sight for opponents. The Steelers have their work cut out in the AFC North, but the talent is there to make a run.

Pittsburgh Steelers season in review

When the 2019 season came to a close, the Steelers were on the outside looking in at the NFL playoffs. However, the fact that the team remained in contention until the very end stands as an accomplishment.

In the opening week of the season, Pittsburgh took a trip to New England to take on the Patriots. They were promptly hammered to the tune of 33-3, and Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending injury to boot.

Mason Rudolph took over, and the team managed to stay competitive. Nonetheless, the Steelers would still enter the Week 7 bye with a mark of 2-4. Coming out of the break, the club managed to catch fire.

Pittsburgh would go on to win six of its next seven games with Rudolph and Devlin Hodges both taking snaps behind center over this span. At 8-5, the club that looked like its season was ruined in Week 1 was suddenly a big factor in the playoff picture.

Unfortunately, the air came out of the balloon. Pittsburgh lost its final three games of the season to wrap up at 8-8. That left the Steelers short of a wild card berth in the AFC. Roethlisberger will be back for the coming season, so hopes are high that it’ll be a different story.

Pittsburgh Steelers 2020 draft picks

The Steelers traded away their first-round draft pick to the Miami Dolphins for Minkah Fitzpatrick, but that has proven to be a wise investment. During the draft, the club managed to nab some interesting prospects while filling holes in its roster elsewhere.

  • Round 2: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
  • Round 3: Alex Highsmith, LB, Charlotte
  • Round 4: Anthony McFarland Jr., RB, Maryland
  • Round 4: Kevin Dotson, OL, Louisiana-Lafayette
  • Round 6: Antoine Brooks Jr., S, Maryland
  • Round 7: Carlos Davis, DT, Nebraska

Historically, the Steelers have drafted quite well. They’ve managed to live up to those standards over the past decade while hitting on a lot of the right notes. Here’s a look back at the first-round draft choices over the last decade in Pittsburgh.

  • 2019: Devin Bush Jr., LB, Michigan
  • 2018: Terrell Edmunds, S, Virginia Tech
  • 2017: T.J. Watt, LB, Wisconsin
  • 2016: Artie Burns, CB, Miami
  • 2015: Bud Dupree, LB, Kentucky
  • 2014: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State
  • 2013: Jarvis Jones, LB, Georgia
  • 2012: David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
  • 2011: Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
  • 2010: Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida

How many starting QBs have the Steelers had since 2000?

The Steelers have been blessed with a lot of continuity at QB through the years, but fortunes changed quickly when Ben Roethlisberger went down to injury last season. The backups did an admirable job in relief, but the offense just wasn’t the same. A look back at the starters in Pittsburgh over the last two decades shows just how reliable Roethlisberger has been.

  • 2019: Mason Rudolph – 8 starts, Devlin Hodges – 6, Ben Roethlisberger – 2
  • 2018: Ben Roethlisberger – 16
  • 2017: Ben Roethlisberger – 15, Landry Jones – 1

  • 2000: Kordell Stewart – 11, Kent Graham – 5

Steelers head coaching history

The Pittsburgh Steelers football team trace their franchise roots back to 1933. From inception until 1969, the Steelers had made exactly one appearance in the postseason. Fortunes changed quickly in Pittsburgh once Chuck Noll was hired to take over as head coach.

Noll was the architect of what would turn out to be a dynasty in the 1970s. He set the standard, and the franchise as a whole still follows it to this very day. Remarkably, since Noll took the job, just three men have served as head coach of the Steelers.

Continuity has been a hallmark of the franchise. Team owners pick their man and stick with him, and that has been a solid formula. A look back at the coaching records of all three of the hires since 1969 serves as an emphatic confirmation.
