The Steelers offense ranked #21 in offense last season. 27 passing TDs. Mike Wallace had 8 of those and Heath Miller also had 8. Wallace is gone and who knows when Heath will be back.

Who is going to make up for the TDs that are not going to be scored by Wallace and Miller? Sanders had 1 last season and Brown had 5. Brown, although he had over 1,000 yards in 2011, only had 2 TD catches. Also, our receivers are not going to have the benefit of Wallace being doubled on occasion.

So where does that leave the Steelers in terms of TDs from the passing game this coming season? And what do the Steelers do about it?
Well for starters keeping Ben off the ground in the red zone would help, and JC has the best hands on the team but is underused major. Hopefully someone wakes the hell up and use our talent correctly
