Default Re: Are the Steelers better or worse than last year?

If we can manage too stay healthy we'll be better than last year.

As it stands Ben appears to have turned the corner. He's making faster decisions/getting rid of the ball and hitting receivers in stride.

Combine the above with Wallace entering a contract year and Brown and Sanders as 2nd year players and your DB's have more than they can handle. Hines will always be Hines and Cotchery is a significant upgrade over ARE.

Because of 1 and 2 defensive coordinators can no longer stack 7-8 men in the box to stop the run. Which opens up lanes for a solid 1-2 punch of Mendy and Redman coming out of the backfield.

Assuming that our defense can stay healthy they should be towards the top of the league yet once again.
