The Pittsburgh Steelers are gearing up for another season and there will be changes on the field.
Aside from their home turf bearing a new name, the biggest change will be Ben Roethlisberger‘s absence after retiring from the game.
But even though the two-time Super Bowl winner is gone, the team’s die-hard fans continue to show their support for the squad.
The level of which is so profound that new linebacker Myles Jack had some culture shock.

The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly said, “Myles Jack about camp: This is not normal around here. I don’t think anybody works.”
Fans come in droves to see their favorite players in action.
At the end of that day’s session, the team’s stars proceed with some autograph signing.
That level of support is a significant reason for the team’s sustained success.
Then and now, the support for the team remains strong, especially because they have handed down their allegiance to the next generation.
Sports is their bonding activity and watching together brings back several memories.
Steelers Fans Remain Through Thick and Thin
Win or lose, Steelers fans will cheer and trade barbs for their favorite team.
Now that they have several talented players in place, they will have more reasons to make noise for their team.
Jack should also get used to the deafening sound of the crowd during their home games.
It’s a boost of energy that has helped the Steelers perform better especially when they are coming from behind.
When he hears the crowd roar, Jack should be on cue to deliver a game-changing tackle on defense.
