Schefter hints that the Steelers are a more likely option

It was widely speculated that a Justin Fields trade could be worked out during the week of the NFL Combine. While nothing has come to light yet, ESPN’s Adam Schefter threw a small wrench into what many believed would happen.

Speaking on SportsCenter, Schefter said that Fields going to Atlanta would be surprising, and hinted that the Steelers are still very much interested in the Bears quarterback.

“I think Atlanta will be something of a surprise right now to trade for Justin Fields,” Schefter said. “There’s been some conversation about the Pittsburgh Steelers. Maybe something can be figured out there.”

The Falcons and Steelers share several similarities. They both have terrific skill position players, good defenses, and feel like they are a quality quarterback away from being real players in their respective conferences. While the Raiders have also been put in the Fields conversation, it just doesn’t make a lot of sense with his former offensive coordinator Luke Getsy getting the offensive coordinator job in Las Vegas. There was a clear disconnect between the two in Chicago, and reuniting elsewhere doesn’t make sense. It looks like it will either be Atlanta or Pittsburgh that land Fields.

Saturday Night Open Thread: Saying Goodbye

Come and join this merry band of Steelers’ faithful for some lively debate about our Steelers, good food, music, and the merits of the odd cold beverage.

It is with some mixed emotions that I will be stepping away from hosting our beloved SNOT.

I am very passionate about a few things in life. I couldn’t love my wife and kids more, family is everything to me. I also love cooking and eating good food, the sharing of adult beverages, campfires, good company, listening to 80’s hairbands, and obviously cheering on my beloved Habs and Steelers. That’s why this Saturday night adventure has been so much fun. Many of you share similar passions.

SNOT started out as, incredibly enough, a good thing to actually come out of Covid. I started it as a fan post and it received about as many comments as the Friday night open thread. It was maybe a month or so before it was a regular feature on the main page much to the delight of many of us stuck at home on a Saturday night.

I have loved the discussions about so many of our shared passions. I have learned a great deal from many of you. Cooking ideas, recipes and some new music for sure, but about how to have real debate, something sadly missing from far too much of our society today. This is such a great group!

I feel very fortunate that you have put up with me as your host for so long. I just feel that the time has come to pass the torch, so to speak. I am happy to let you know that SNW will be taking over as your regular host. I am sure that with his talents and leadership you all are in great hands.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me share in your joy and love of our favourite football team.

Cheers!
