The Coronavirus pandemic has still left the question unanswered — will fans be in NFL stadiums during the 2020 season? If fans are allowed in the stadiums, it will mostly likely be at a limited capacity with masks required upon entry.

But, there is the possibility of the NFL season returning without fans filling the seats and the Pittsburgh Steelers on the field without the roars of Renegade filling the stadium.

Steelers linebacker, T.J. Watt doesn’t think it’ll change Pittsburgh’s game. After being interviewed on 93.7 The Fan, he said it’ll be adjustment.

“It’ll be ridiculous but it doesn’t matter the circumstances, man. If football is being played, we’re going to be out there and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be flying around, I guarantee you that,” Watt said.

The circumstances make sense if it’s for the health and safety for players and fans – and everyone else involved. But Watt says they’re prepared to adapt.

“I’ve briefly thought about it, but not too much. Me? I’m just getting prepared to play football. It doesn’t matter if there are fans in the stands or if they’re not, obviously, it’s going to be an adjustment period for all of us. I would love to have fans there, but if they’re not there because of safety, safety always comes first when it comes to the players and to the fans so, we’re just going to have to adjust and adapt and play as best as we possibly can with the circumstances that we’re dealt,” Watt said.


What do you think, SteelerNation? Do you think it’s a good idea to have some fans in the stadiums? Do you think the Steelers will perform the same without fans there? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
