They have to stop trying to be like the old Steelers or worrying about who could get hurt and take over games.
Sandlot style doesn't equate to scoring more points. There's a reason why the highest scoring offenses don't rely on it. They don't give Ben the keys because he isn't capable. He's already lost enough in key situations as much as he's won. I love Ben, I'm happy for what he did - but he won't do more until he buys into something a little bigger than his wonderful skill set that doesn't cut it for an aging QB. The end.
