Tim Benz, Kevin Gorman examine Minkah Fitzpatrick, other Steelers moves

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph looks to throw again the Seattle Seahawks in the third quarter Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019 at Heinz Field.

It’s our weekly “Breakfast With Benz” podcast from the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side.

Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference Tuesday afternoon, and I’m not sure how many of his pressers had so much to talk about.

Ben Roethlisberger’s season-ending injury. Mason Rudolph’s first start. The Minkah Fitzpatrick trade. And the signing of former first-round draft choice Paxton Lynch to add quarterback depth.

No shortage of issues to discuss there.

Fellow TribLIVE columnist Kevin Gorman joins me to investigate all those topics.

Plus, we get into how the rest of the team either will — or will not — be able to help Rudolph survive, how Fitzpatrick will be deployed and how the James Washington – Rudolph connection could blossom.

LISTEN: Tim Benz and Kevin Gorman talk Steelers, lots of Steelers: Roethlisberger’s season is over; Rudolph gets first start; Fitzpatrick arrives via trade

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
