This is a very positive outlook from a national mag. Its good to see some don't have the Steelers finishing in the basement.

From Sporting News.com

BOTTOM LINE

Roethlisberger is sure to perform better now that his body and mind have healed. The offense should be more varied this season, with more spread formations on running downs and with more effective use of tight end Heath Miller. The Steelers will make the playoffs and contend for the AFC North title.

Sounds like a very fair assessment.

I kind of like when they don't give us any positve comments. It feels better when the Steelers prove them wrong.

McFadden to beat Townsend by midseason? I think that's going to happen during pre season, hopefully

That line from the article makes no sense. I think FWP runs just fine without the FB.

Yeah I say McFadden is a starter by the fourth preseason game against the Eagles.

Question, with no fullback in some formations anybody think Kreider will be around after this season? I hope so, he is one of the most underrated fullbacks in the business!

I'm pretty sure that TSN uses Gary Dulac for their Steelers reports.

yes, I do. I think they will still use and need him in the second half. Actually, this may extend his career more, as he will get less use per season.
