The Pittsburgh Steelers matched the offer to keep Emmanuel Sanders, in a Steelers uniform and that will make Big Ben Roethlisberger happy. What won’t make him happy is the fact some don’t see the Steelers will do much to control the AFC-North in the 2013 NFL season.

The Steelers are getting old. The team needs a major over-haul and they need to bring in some youth.  That is what people are saying about the Pittsburgh Steelers. Those same people could be in for a surprise this season.

If the Steelers can protect Roethlisberger this season and he stays healthy, you cannot count him out. Big Ben is a competitor, the guy finds ways to win no matter what talent he has around him. With his injuries behind him, he will come into camp this season with the will to win and it will spread throughout the Steelers organization.

For those counting the Steelers out in 2013, I caution you. They always find a way to get things done. They have been doing this for a very long time. Sure the players are older but they have experience and you can’t replace that with youth.

It is too early to say the Pittsburgh Steelers won’t be a factor in the AFC-North. I think some are going to be in for a surprise this season.
