With the start of the regular season less than two weeks away, it is time to look at each Pittsburgh Steelers starter and set a bar for them.
For now, we will operate under the assumption that the starters currently listed on the Steelers’ official website will be the same guys starting during Week 1. Considering there are still a few unresolved position battles being waged, do not be surprised if that is not the case.
As always, take these expectations with a grain of salt. A lot can change in a short period of time due to injuries, guys stepping up or factors that no one can see coming.
Some bars are set much higher than others. Example: I expect much more from Ben Roethlisberger than, say, any running back on the roster.
As it stands, these are your 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers starters. If nothing else, it is going to be fascinating watching how Pittsburgh performs this year.
