View Full Version : back to the basics

I know we all have our theories,on how our team should perform.Looking back on our past history,i seem to remember a brutal run defense,glove tight reciever coverage,and a smothering pass rush.
Granted,it all starts, with your starting offensive line.However,the predictability of your offense,how you set,can set up the defense,for what it is you are trying to accomplish.
The quarterback,has a big part in this.And let me tell you brother steeler fans,Ben is as good at prolonging a play as anyone,since Terry Bradshaw.The biggest difference between the two,that i see is that Ben scrambles out of the coverage,of the offensive line,where as Terry would go behind them for shelter.A simple step up,rather than run out of the pocket. Eyes down the field at all times.
I can remember the times,when it was third and 2,and this is before the Bettis days,we would line up,and the defense knew,we were going to run,and we did it anyway.Defenses have seen that for years,so thier preparation has progressed. You would need an offensive line of super heroes to negate that aspect of the game.
I have grown so weary of everyone slashing our offensive lineman up.I believe that they are well suited to handle the task at hand.The truth is,that we need to become less predictable with our offensive play calling.
We no longer,force our will on the defenses of today.It worked for so long,i guess we became accustom to it.well "news flash",it ain't flyin no more.
Rashard may be a preclusion of what needs to occur. Once you lose the respect of the defense you are facing,they will begin to prey upon you.In some cases you need a four pronged attack,not just a two pronged one.
I am sure that my idol,"Chuck",would agree to that approach. He had a high regard for special teams also! No excuses accepted. From what i have heard,you would not want to be in Chucks dog house either! Referring to Terry's comments,i'm sure i am correct about that. If you have seen my avitar,you will be assured,that Chuck knows what he was preaching about.His four boys in front of him are proof enough for me.
Our biggest obstacle has been special teams blunders,not our offensive line. Granted,we have no more Chuck,and we do not have the "Cower Power",that we use to have,but we have a very innovated coach with "Mike Tomlin",and i don't know about you guy's,but i am a believer.We will be back at the top of the heap in a short time.

Thankyou for reading my opinion.

:hatsoff:Nice Post Billybob

I really miss the days of line it up and smashtheirmouthfootbal!!!
With Mendenhall and Parker running the ball this upcoming season, I look forward to seeing some of that again myself. But we have alot of talent at WR and TE that needs to be taken advantage of as well. Holmes is gonna be a great reciever for the steelers and maybe Sweed will be our replacement for Hines. But the guy that I am looking forward to seeing is WR Dallas Baker and seeing if he has improved as much as Ben and Tomlin has said in the past weeks

[I]I love all of the response that my thread started.We happen to be fans of one of the greatest football teams in history. I guess i just expected more response,on this Memorial Day.
Just tryin to get geared up for the start of the season.I happen to like our "aquisitions;and i can not wait for the offensive line to quiet a few nay-sayers.
Respect must be earned,[and our offensive/I] line expectants,know what they have to do.Once they are complimented;bye thier new found..unpredictability,We could possibly have one awsome team.I &hit you not.
Man i love the STEELERS !:tt03:

You guys are sooo right........

....it is really just a waste of time for the other teams to even show up at your games, isn't it ??

Unfortunately for you folks, this notion hasn't been suitably impressed upon those other 13 different teams on your schedule, so they are definitely going to show up anyway !!

.....and some of them are even going to have the unmitigated GALL to kick your butts !!!

It doesn't get any more basic than that !!

You cleveland guys are an interesting clump.You visit our website,and still talk the trash of our most hated rival.After,i might add,you have already been trashed,and escourted to the dump!   The only way we messed up, is we forgot to weigh you before we dumped you off for scap.    Scrap prices are pretty lucrative now,so i am guessing that we missed out.   But you have something to look forward to,you still get recognition on our site,"cause" we love someone to thrust into the blast-furnace.

Ugh...You Again?

No, it isn't a waste of time for other teams to show up, if they didn't, we wouldn't have anyone that we could break on the field of battle. There would be no one for us to rip the spines out of or skulls for us to smash in. So we need those other teams to show up. Once in a while, it would be nice to be thrown a pathetic team that we could crush 9 or so times in a row, but I prefer it when my prey fights back a little, it makes it more exciting.

Now don't you have some poop to play with or something? How is the therapy going anyway?

I kind of thought he was in dire need of some kind of help.At least he is getting the help that he needs.Maybe it will make him a better person and a productive member of the Cleveland society,if there is a productive Cleveland society!(LOL)If there is,it is certainly not on the playing field!:drink:
