PostSubject: Steelers send strong message with moves   Tue Sep 05, 2017 3:14 am

There was a stir in the Steelers locker room Monday, with cameras surrounding the stall of Le'Veon Bell and a trio of newcomers causing players to talk about going to work on Labor Day.

Steelers president Art Rooney II might have cautioned against thinking about a Super Bowl before the season starts, but the recent moves made their motive clear.

The return of Bell and the additions of tight end Vance McDonald, cornerback Joe Haden and safety J.J. Wilcox sent a strong message about the Steelers' expectations for a season that starts Sunday at the Cleveland Browns.

It's Super Bowl or bust.

“Absolutely, you've got to look at it like that,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “I've been here for eight years, and they've never done anything like that. So, I think it's a right-now thing.

“It's awesome to look around and think that, but every team looks good on paper,” Pouncey said. “We always had the right mindset. We knew we had a great team. It was always easier to say on the microphone how great we are, but that's just names and numbers. We've got to go out there and do it.

Just look at how we looked "on paper" last year and then injuries took hold.This year we have what looks like a much improved secondary, a better pass rush and run stopping ability.Even STs look better. This team can be special and I believe they can win it all. Health and focus will be the key.

Focus on one game at a time and the Super Bowl is possible with this team....on paper.

Got to stop putting up stinkers every once in a while that ultimately sabotage a championship run.

Get off to a good start and build momentum.....send a message.

Yeah after they've plugged some holes it's no excuses. Put away the bad teams, and beat the good ones.
