Maybe it's time for a philosophy change - more points faster. This team killed itself grinding out long drives to only settle for three or see Ben get sacked out of FG range when they easily have capabilities to score quickly. 7 points in 1 minute is better than no points in 8 minutes. And since the Steelers will be forced to get younger on defense this season, there is really no excuse for them to hold the offense back from more quick strikes.
I agree they need to put points up earlier but I'm sure they also want to. Brady throws short passes all game and scores a lot. He's doing the same thing we tried, he'll New England even ran more times then us. They just executed better. It's not like the Steelers went trying to score
