…and can we talk Steelers football? Is that alright? It’s not even Halloween yet but you you would have thought it was Christmas the way the officials were handing out gifts for both teams on Sunday. The only thing missing were pretty bows and ribbons on top. Pass interference calls on both the defense and offense that weren’t there, roughing penalties that weren’t there, an interception that wasn’t there. I even heard some boos so it looks like there were a few Eagle fans among the 4,708 in attendance. Yep, 792 no show’s for the first game to allow fans at Heinz field this season thanks to Covid. It was also the first game where the Steelers scored 30 or more points in a game, ending a 23 game drought that dates back to week 12 of the 2018 season. On the other hand fans almost saw the Steelers lose their first game ever when leading by 17 in the second half thanks in large part to a guy by the name of Travis Fulgham, a former 6th round draft pick who looked like an all pro wide receiver against a Steelers secondary that had at times had more holes than Swiss chess. That would have been a shame considering Steelers rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool was having himself an all pro afternoon. He set a franchise rookie record for a total of 4 touchdowns in a game. The last person to do that was Roy Jefferson back in 1968. Plus he was the first rookie since a guy by the name of Franco Harris back in 1972 to have both a running and receiving touchdown in the same game and his 4 touchdown game was the best for a rookie since Eric Green scored three. Not bad for a guy who might have grown up to be a hockey player since he was born and raised in Canada. While we’re at it, Claypool is the first Canadian to score 3 touchdowns in a game since Reuben Mayes did it for the Arizona Cardinals 30 years ago only thing Claypool did him one better. Let’s hear it for another one who got away from the Great White North and welcome to Pittsburgh!
