Last year, Stephon Tuitt was truly unstoppable. Well, almost unstoppable. He had an upper-body injury which derailed his historic season. In 2019, he totaled four sacks and six tackles for loss. These were aiming to be career highs in all categories. We all hope this injury won't be a lingering injury this year.
Against the Giants, he racked up one sack which is heading in the right direction. Last year, the Steelers were dominant without him, so just imagine how good the Steelers can be with him back on the other side of Cam Heyward. Next week, the Steelers play against Denver and we are all hoping that he can continue to take steps back to getting truly back to form after most of last year sitting on the sideline.
This year, the Steelers are on a quest for #7. If our defense is playing well, we might see that happening and it all starts with that defensive front getting to the quarterback and forcing turnovers. Having #91 back will keep that going and take our defense to be even better than last year.
