Default Re: Steelers Running the Ball on 3rd Down

I believe Tomlin's approach will be, open it up, score points, allow the defense to dominate the other team and get them off the field as quick as possible. Build a lead by whatever means possible, then punish the other team into submission. Case in point, 18 straight running plays to Punish the Browns defense. That was awesome. I just sat back and watched with a grin, if that's what the future, I'm all about it.

Plus, the deep shot down field after a turnover is a an old Chuck Noll Terry Bradshaw tactic. Cowher never took that deep shot for fear of turning it right back over to the other team. I'm all about taking that chance and going for a knock out punch right away.
