Possess the ball more?? The Steelers are #2 in the NFL in TOP, just behind Houston. Avg per game is 32:14, Houston is 33:09.
They are completely ineffective on offense, and a longer TOP won't change that.

The solution is not to possess the ball more, it's to do something with it, and a good start would be to reduce the # of giveaways. The Steelers are #2 in total fumbles with 33 for the season, behind ........... Philadelphia. Oh and they're also 3rd in fumbles lost, with 16.

The Offense was putrid, period.
