mike logan cited the leadership in 2005 when the steelers were slumping after their 15-1 season in 2004.
they rode the inspiration of jerome to the SB and delivered a win in his hometown as they sent him off into the sunset.
we then lost players like jerome, von oelhoffen, stc, and there was a void in 2006 as the team started out 2-6 and lost many games similar to the ones lost this season.
i agree there is a leadership void.
as great as players like troy, clark, harrison, are, they are foot soldiers. ben leads as much as he can, but ultimately he has a job to do other than cheerlead and motivate.
we really got nobody to take up the torch players like porter and farrior left behind.
