Those may remain the same in 2020 as two-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva has agreed to a two-year deal with the Ravens after spending seven years protecting Ben Roethlisberger.
The Steelers typically had a good run-pass combination for most of those years with Le’Veon Bell leading the backfield. This past season, they got nothing going on the ground and were carried by their defense with some heroics by Big Ben.
Many claimed they were the worst team to be 11-0 which proved to be true with their first-round playoff loss.
But, their 11 straight wins weren’t necessarily why they were in the news. With JuJu Smith-Schuster, the team’s star receiver, dancing on logos and getting TikTok famous for it, the Steelers quickly created a target.
It might not have just been other teams that hated them as Villanueva also made a comment on the TikToks that the Steelers receiving corps would make and how he’ll prefer the run-heavy offense.

"I’m assuming it’s not as much fun for the receivers because they’re not getting all of the catches, they’re making the Tik Toks and and they’re having fun on their social media."
Let’s just say the Cincinnati Bengals and Villanueva have an equal distaste for them. We saw the Bengals hatred for the dancing on logos come out when Vonn Bell absolutely obliterated (legal hit) Smith-Schuster.
While the logo dancing may not come back, it seems as the TikToks are here to stay as Smith-Schuster has maintained his following on the app. Then again, if JuJu does dare dance on the Bengals logo again, he can expect another message from the defense.
