    What's Hot: Pittsburgh Steelers OTAs, Week 1 matchup and the 1978 team

    in Football

    It's never too early to make predictions.


    That's just one thing we'll do in the newest edition of "What's Hot", which will air live Wednesday night on ourBlogTalkRadio page at 9:00 p.m. ET. We'll discuss the Steelers' quotes from earlier this week regarding the team's Week One matchup against the Patriots, while also offering some Fact or Fiction predictions about the 2015 Steelers that will include discussions about the Steelers' offense's shot at being No.1 in the NFL, the defense and how many turnovers it will record in '15, DeAngelo Williams' future production and what Pittsburgh's record will be after three games.


    Last week, the Steelers uniforms were named as the NFL's best by ESPN. Which variation of the Steelers' jersey is your favorite? Chris Carter and I will discuss which is our favorite Steelers uniform.


    Co-host and fellow BTSC writer Chris Carter and I believe that the 1978 Steelers are the best team in NFL history. In light of the NFL's Network's Dynasty Week celebration last week, what team do we think could rival the 1978 Steelers as the best team in NFL history? We'll break down the other great teams in NFL history to see if there really is a worthy challenger that could go toe-to-toe with the great Steelers of '78.

    What's Hot: Pittsburgh Steelers 2015 Draft, AFC North Grades and more

    in Football

    "What's Hot" will get you up to date with the most recent NFL news, which currently is the aftermath of the NFL Draft. We'll discuss who will have the better career between Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston along with the reason why the Cowboys didn't draft a running back to replace DeMarco Murray.


    We'll talk plenty about the Steelers draft, what you need to know about all eight draft picks and which rookie we think will make the biggest impact in 2015. We'll also see how the rest of the AFC North did in the draft along with trying to figure out what happened in the second round between the Steelers, Ravens, and Baltimore rookie tight end Maxx Williams.


    As we all know, the Steelers have a rich history that very few franchises in professional sports can match. Talking about our team's great moments from the past and sharing our memories of those moments will be a staple of "What's Hot". Tomorrow night, we'll look back at our favorite moments from the 1975 Super Bowl X champions, the 1995 AFC Champions (as is the unwritten rule of BTSC, we will refrain from saying the name of one player from that team) and the 2005 Super Bowl XL championships team.


    Be sure to tune in LIVE Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
