What the heck is a “slobberknocker?” In football terms Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , it’s a hit that, well, knocks the slobber right out of the other player’s mouth. I’ll be posing six hard-hitting questions to BTSC fans every game-day morning during the 2018 regular season.The Pittsburgh Steelers play their first home game later today, tangling with the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field. It’s an opportunity for the Steelers to redeem themselves following a rain-soaked tie in Cleveland which the Black-and-gold somehow allowed to slip out of the win column. And BTSC fans will be watching every move and holding the home team accountable because they’re not your run-of-the-mill Steelers’ fans, but a cut above. As such, they crave more in-depth commentary.Q1: With Right Guard David DeCastro sitting out Sunday with a broken hand, will his absence be felt more in the running game or passing game?Q2: With Haden all but ruled out, should an injured Artie Burns move to the Left Cornerback position (this might be null and void with Burns’ availability also being in question)?Q3: If neither Burns nor Haden is available to play, who will have a better game — Cameron Sutton or Coty Sensabaugh? Should the Steelers move Mike Hilton out of the slot to man one of the outside positions?Q4: Can James Conner repeat his outstanding stat output from Week 1 against a Chiefs’ defense that was gashed for 123 rushing yards in Week 1? Will his surprising use in the passing game continue?Q5: What changes will the Steelers make to give Ben Roethlisberger a cleaner pocket after a disastrous Week 1?Q6: After the Chiefs gave up more than 400 passing yards last week, who will have more receiving yards, Antonio Brown or JuJu Smith-Schuster (for those not keeping score at home, JuJu outpaced AB 119-93 in Week 1)?The disappointing tie against the Cleveland Browns hardly looked like the start of a championship run that Steelers fans wanted to see. Time to file those memories away and focus on the road ahead, as the Steelers look to continue their dominance over the Chiefs. Pittsburgh has won six of the last seven meetings including three out of the last four. Will the BTSC boards be saturated with joyous fans or disgruntled and panicky ones later today?Snap Counts from the Steelers’ Week 3 win show the emergence of the two tight end set Before the Week 3 game on Monday Night Football in Florida vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, many Pittsburgh Steelers fans wondered what the team saw in tight end Vance McDonald. After all Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys , he had been hurt in 2017 more than he played, and he was following the same trend to start the 2018 season.However, after a vicious stiff-arm, and a 75 yard touchdown run, the fan base caught a glimpse of just what McDonald can bring to the offense. But it goes well beyond his catch and run ability, and extends all the way to different offensive packages the team can deploy on a week-to-week basis.With McDonald healthy and active, it gives the Steelers three capable tight ends, but also allows them to run more of their two tight end sets. With McDonald and Jesse James as the team’s top tight ends, it gives them viable options as both run blockers and pass catchers on any given play. If you want evidence of this fact, look no further than the snap totals from the team’s first win of the season in prime time on Monday night. In the game vs. Tampa Bay, Vance McDonald played 48 percent of the snaps (32 of 66), Jesse James played 50 percent (33 of 66) and Xavier Grimble played 24 percent (16 of 66). Prior to Week 3 the team had been unable to ever deploy their tight ends this much due to injury. McDonald missed the Week 1 game vs. the Cleveland Browns, and was working his way back in Week 2 against the Chiefs. Grimble was coming off hand/wrist surgery to start the season, so maybe now www.authenticspittsburghsteelers.com , entering Week 4, the Steelers can really see what their group of tight ends can bring to the table with them all healthy.The tight ends were the only positions which stood out from a snap total standpoint. Take a look at some other notes from the game Monday night:OffenseJames Washington logged his most snaps of the season with 40 (61 percent of offensive snaps).After Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Washington, the next highest receiver on the snap total list was Ryan Switzer (7 snaps).James Conner, although not logging a lot of carries Monday, was used as an every down back throughout the game. He played 56 snaps (85 percent) with Stevan Ridley logging 5 snaps.DefenseFor the first time of his young NFL career, Terrell Edmunds played in every snap of a football game (73/73)The outside linebackers shuffled more than usual with Bud Dupree playing 57 snaps (78 percent), T.J. Watt playing 65 snaps (89 percent) and Anthony Chickillo playing 24 snaps (33 percent).For the cornerbacks, Coty Sensabaugh logged more snaps (48) than Artie Burns (25), but both trailed Joe Haden (73) who was coming off a hamstring injury.
