Team:
22 for 105, 4.8 yards per carry

4 guys carried the ball, take out their longest runs (WP 13, RM 39, MM 15, BR 5):
18 for 37, 2 ypc

Oh but wait, you don't take out the longest runs, cuz those count. The point? Probably another long week of complaining about the running game, but I think there were some flashes this week, and, considering the weather conditions, I would've liked to see us try the ground game a little more in some key situations ...obviously Holmes would attest to the slippery conditions and there were numerous occasions where, according to Mr. Simms, the ball was coming out of BR's hand wrong.

agreed to all above.....except mr. simms is a tool and all he says should be taken with a grain of salt

the steelers' running game is an F until they can show some consistency on 3rd and short.
