Our offense is stuffed with young talent. Tomlin needs to do what he has to do to get this team playing to it's full potential.
Huge talent? Like who?
We have one good o-lineman and that is Pouncey. He can't block everyone.
We have good receivers, but they can't catch passes if Ben is on his @ass or being hit all the time.
We have to plug the line. We didn't do that in the offseason. The Ravens front 4 on D exploited it as well as the D of Packers in the superbowl. If any teams watches tape of those 2 games they will shift some of their best D line around to take advantage of it too. Which spells a looong season of losing.
Once a weakness is exposed, good teams will take advantage of it. Bad teams won't and we will beat them. But good teams will. Teams like the Ravens, and the Patriots, and the Packers. Thats why we keep losing to the same teams all the time. They exploit our o-line and take shots on us down the field on defense.
Now that more teams are talented than last year, we can expect more and more teams to beat us.
