The Pittsburgh Steelers are undefeated and that’s because a lot of things have gone right for them. Their defense has been great, Ben Roethlisberger has bounced back, and Pittsburgh has also gotten a spark from rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool. It’s amazing when you watch Claypool play because you can’t really tell how big he is. This is a 6’4” 238 pound human being but you’d never know that because Claypool is so explosive. He runs like he’s 40 pounds lighter than he really is. That’s why the Steelers don’t settle for just using Claypool as a wide receiver. We saw him take a couple of jet sweeps against the Eagles. On those plays he’s almost like another running back. Then you have to applaud Claypool for his big play capability. After scoring 4 touchdowns against Philadelphia we have to acknowledge how much Claypool can impact the game. This is the piece that can help the Steelers finally get past the loss of Antonio Brown. It came sooner-than-expected and Claypool deserves all the praise in the world for that.
