We have too many power backs right now. The Steelers looking at Isaiah Pead, and Ronnie Hillman tell me they realize the importance of speed at the position for a change of pace. Just look at some highlights of the guys with 4.4 speed in this year's draft and you will see what the Steelers are sorely missing in the ground game. We have a stable of backs right now where you can't even run outside because they all are too slow to beat defenders to the edge. Why limit are running game and play calling?
