I hope you're right, but I see the RB position as the most important issue on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. Can Dwyer and Redman pull it together? Were they the problem to begin with or was it all the injuries on the O-line?

The Steelers are forced to address the issue one way or another, and I have faith that they will give Ben a chance to run a top notch NFL offense.
If I ever get mad and leave the forum I'm going to make the best meltdown thread ever. there's gonna be beavers, and tyrannosaurus's and donuts and the cookie monster and everything
