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.
GoFor7 was being sarcastic about the importance of time of possession. Making fun of fans/the Rooneys who want to run the ball and win the TOP battle, or "Yinzers" as he calls them, is sort of GoFor7's thing.
