Building on an 11-5 season culminating with an AFC North title is a tall order for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but they will be up for the task. Pittsburgh’s offense is stacked and is returning every starter from last year’s squad which finished second in the NFL in yards per game. With arguably the best quarterback-running back-wide receiver trio in the league in Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, this offense is set to decimate their opponents’ defenses and carry the Steelers to the postseason. Second-year wideout Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton are both tremendously talented and will add to depth on the field. The Steelers’ offensive line returns intact and is young but also experienced. Maurkice Pouncey had an excellent season in 2014 at center after returning from a major knee injury and will look to build on that again in 2015. The Steelers’ have a new defensive coordinator with former linebackers coach Keith Butler taking over for Dick LeBeau
He inherits a young squad and will most likely keep with the Pittsburgh’s base 3-4 defense. Ryan Shazier should have a break-out season after the former 15th overall pick from 2014 was limited last year due to a high ankle sprain and rookie growing pains. His speed and talent, along with the competition at inside linebacker should propel Shazier to new heights in 2015. The secondary has gotten younger with the loss of perennial all Pro Bowler Troy Polamalu and it will be interesting to see what happens this season at the safety position.
Overall, the Steelers’ offense will most likely carry this team in 2015 until this transitional defense solidifies itself. The AFC North is a tough division but look for Pittsburgh to be in the mix for the title once again.
