I think the direction with the 1st Pick will equal the direction with the pass/rush ratio... IF a skill position player is taken.

If we take a RB or a WR with the first pick, based on what direction you would like the Steelers to go in 2006, what would be your choice?

Go with what is working. Running the ball. I rememember what happened the last time we tried airing it out and what happened.

As much as I love watching the passing game, especially now that Ben is really starting to find his passing groove, I would still have to give stronger support to finding a tough, mudder-type running back. That is when we perform the best. When we wear them down with the run, keep their defense on the field and tire them out....THEN air ir out a little to back them off, then start running some more........then comes the gadget play.

I LOVE THAT!

Forget being pass happy. How about just being closer to 50/50?

I opt for C: Move up and get the best WR in the draft.

I will be happy as long as we win. I enjoy seeing Ben throw, but i like that power running game and Willie's break away speed as well. I would like it if we stayed with what we do ... where we can beat someone by the run or the pass and being able to mix it up at will and have success.

Our O line injury's had alot to do with the season we threw alot as well. I know they wanted to see the possiblity of changing the offensive scheme prior to some, but Maddox had such a good year the year before and there were questions about Bettis's ability to play a full season and trying to take some of the load off of him for the end of season.

I didnt like it, didnt seem like ( Steelers Football) ... Following Cowher all these years, i just cant see him straying too far away from what he loves to do which is bury a team with the run and being in control of the game after trying it once and it failing so badly even though there were other circumstances that may have helped contribute to why it failed.

(much like this past year)
