The parade today was a good look at how close this Steelers team is.
These guys really enjoy being around each other and there's no finger pointing between the offense and defense.
That wasn't always the case. I distinctly remember when there was a definite chasm between the offense and defense back in the early 90s. The defense, which was outstanding, didn't feel the offense carried any of load.

No rest for the winners.

Rebuilding the offensive line will be a big topic. Four players with starting experience will be free agents.
Signing outside linebacker James Harrison to a new deal - he's got one year remaining on his current deal - will also be a hot topic. That will be one of the team's offseason priorities.
