It's a huge, DEFINATE Improvement over last years performances against the Rats' blitz. I wouldn't lose sleep over the running game. You and know damn well that the Steelers were not going to get any running room last night. The Rats are still a stout running D, just like the Steelers. The Rats were sending the house on every down to stop Ben, and he made them pay. A complete difference from last year.
