Default Re: 2013 Draft: Maybe it needs to be about offense instead of defense

For a team that needs more from its offense, that unit won't exactly be put into a position to succeed next season if this upcoming draft is mostly about defense.

I won't be disappointed if the Steelers draft a pass-rushing OLB in one of the higher rounds, but this team will desperately need at least a TE, RB, a tall WR, and maybe even another OG above any other defensive position. Resigning Plax also needs to be an option for depth.
Defense has never been the winner in football. Great defense allows to be competitive but great offense indeed always wins. The Steelers issue now is not defense or offense but inability to execute on offense and inability to allow defense to do its thing. It all goes back to Tomlin and Haley, Haley should be fired now, and Tomlin cannot manage a game. So either get a game manager for Tomlin or boot en both
