PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – The Pittsburgh Steelers are trying to dust themselves off from their season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans, and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Steelers beat writer Ed Bouchette gives the latest on the Black & Gold with Vinnie on Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan.

Was Sunday’s result the worst season opener Bouchette has seen in 29 years of covering the Steelers? “I’ve seen it all, and yes, I’ve seen worse,” Bouchette answers. “They opened the 1989 season losing to Cleveland and Cincinnati by a combined 92-10. Some people wanted [Chuck] Noll fired right off the bat. They made the playoffs that year. In ’96 they went to Jacksonville with a new quarterback. They benched him at halftime. Greg Lloyd got hurt. They got destroyed in that game. They made the playoffs that year.”

While Bouchette has seen worse season-openers from the Steelers over the years, he is not ruling out a worse output from the Steelers’ running game next week. “If you thought they had troubles running at home against the Tennessee Titans, wait until you see them try to run at Cincinnati on Monday night against that Bengals defense,” he says. “It’s a lot tougher than the one they faced this past week. I don’t know that they can get it going this week.”

Bouchette also reports what the coaches will be expecting of Jonathan Dwyer in his return to Pittsburgh, and predicts a new starting center for Pittsburgh next week. To hear the entire interview, click on the audio below!
