Other than the obvious of winning the SuperBowl what would you like to see this year that would make you happy?

I'd be happy to see Big Ben rebound and have a great season. 25+ TD's & single digit Int's. He is the key for the next 10 years.

I would REALLY love to see the defense to have a PPG under 17, as well as maintain our under 100 RuYd/G stat that us fans take a lot of pride in.

I know that Ben will be back, so I'd like to see him do that and also beat the Ravens twice this season

Well, I guess it depends...one system depends on another. For example, the running game depends on the performance of the O-line. Matter of fact, lots of things surround the o-line, so I'd like to see improvements there. It's pretty bad when another team I won't mention almost totals a NFL record for most sacks in a game against the B&G...

I would love the O-line to step up and protect Ben which will lead to Ben having a better year and hopefullly having bout 30TD and 15 or less INT!

ESPN does need to shut its mouth. It really is a joke. Fans here don't like it.

1. The offensive line playing well.A line that plays well will affect many aspects of the offense.It will make the passing game more effective,it will let Willie Parker get more yards and touchdowns,it will let Ben stay upright,and it will leave the defense more rested because there are less turonvers and thee-and-outs.

2. I really want Ben to come back.I want him to pass for 3,500+ yards,25+ touchdowns,single-didgit INT's,a passer rating above 100,and a completion percentage better than whatever Carson Palmer puts up.

3. I want the recievers to play well,this includes the tight ends.I want Ward to re-establish himself as a top WR.I want Santonio Holmes to establish himself as one of the bright young starts at WR.I want Heath Miller to actually be an option in the passing game.I want Washington to use his size to his advantage and stop dropping touchdowns (and stop celebrations).I want Wilson,if he makes the team,to stop letting balls bounce off of his hands and into a defenders for an INT.

5. I want QB pressure.I want sacks from our d-line and linebackers.I want the QB to be so confused he doesn't know where to throw the ball.

6. I want our defense to be ranked #1 overall.I know this is possible.I want the defense to have an average of 17 PPG,and for the other team to average no more than 200 YPG.

7. I want our defense to be top 3 against the pass.This is very possible.

8. I want us to be #1 against the run.I take great pride in stopping the run.I want the defense to average no more than 75 yards a game against us,and I want us to give up a maximum of 4 rushing touchdowns this season.

9. I want our special teams to play spetacular.No dropped punts,if Coclough didn't drop that punt in the first Cincy game we would been in the playoffs.I want our new punter to average 50+ yards a punt,to pin the other team inside the 10 from the 50 yard line and in,and inside the 20 from the 50 yard line to our 35.I want kickoffs to end in touchbacks,and downs inside the 20/10...and when they do get returned,for the returner to be stopped before he hits the 25 yard line.

10. I WANT TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL.

For me it is simple.

A strong defense... much improved secondary.

A good, balanced offense.... Willie in the top five for yards, Ben solid, in the top ten for fewest interceptions.

The Steeler way preserved...

And a good deep run into the playoffs.

Better special teams.

Ben throw to the guys wearing the B&G uniforms.

Ike Taylor step up.

O-line play better.

Better pass rush.

Team stay healthy.

Cedrick Wilson to stop crying.

I would love to see Ben bounce back, 1st in rushing offense and defense again, and overall O and D in the top five, and a USDA certified smack down on the Bronc-Hoes when I see them on Sunday night in Denver. That is all!!

8. I want us to be #1 against the run.

This was a large part of why the pass defense seemed to suck so bad last year. Very rarely could we take away the run, which meant the secondary had a harder time making a situational read. Any time you eliminate one dimension of an offense, protecting against the other dimension becomes infinitely easier.

1. Offensive line playing better and everyone picking up blitzes.
2. Getting Keisel and Polamalu both working together in defensive schemes that confuse offenses.
3. Give each opponent long fields on kickoffs and punts (inside their 25).

If they can do these three things, I believe they will do the one thing that will REALLY make me happy. Wanna guess what that is?????

At least 11 wins and a divisional title.

Undefeated at home.

Take out both Indy and NE in the playoffs.

Jack Lambert calls "edge" for the Superbowl coin toss, and it does land and stand on its edge. The Steelers win the Superbowl to ruin another magical New Orleans season. Black and Gold over black and gold 31-10.

LC Greenwood in the HOF.

Chuck Noll gets mentioned frequently as one of the great coaches in NFL history.

I would love to have the #1 D in the NFL again....

also -- would love to beat the Ravens in Baltimore Dec 30th to either
a. win the division
b. keep them from winning the division

I'd love to beat the Cardinals as well - badly - like 35-0....Would be huge for Tomlin and would shut up the Whiz lovers

Not necessarily true...

last year, we were top 3 against the run, but again, 20th against the pass... (2006)

2005. we were 16th against pass, 3rd again against the run.

Year before, we were 1, 4 respectively.. not bad at all in either..

before that, we actually ranked higher (10th) in pass defense then we did run (12)th.

So what we find, is that while we have kept strong against the run since 2003, we have dropped off horribly against the pass since 2004.

On offense: Blocks on passing plays being held longer than 1/2 a second and a significant reduction in red zone turnovers.

On defense: CONSISTENT pressure put on opposing QBs and opposing WRs being jammed at the LOS instead of constantly being given 10-yard cushions.

I here you!

Who was the Steeler CB years ago on MNF who lined up 8 yrds deep in the end zone and Mark Brunell pointed to the WR to cut across, the whole country knew what was coming and it was an easy TD?

What would make me happy would be our new coach having a GREAT first season.....also, if our special teams stepped their play up......I have HIGH hopes that Ben will be back to par and the O and D lines will live up to expectations......


All I want in January is.........:helmet: an extended season!
