Default Re: Steelers have nowhere to run

I spent last night watching a game and seeing a Steeler team that cannot run the football. The Chief is probably mortified, when have the Steelers not had a decent running game. I think Mendenhall is gun shy, after Ray-Ray hit him and put him out for the season his rookie year he seems afraid to run with aggression. If you take a look when Nata (SP?) blew through the line and hit him the first game of the season, Mendenhall's eyes said it all. I truly believe your line plays to quality, what I mean by that is you want to block for someone that is going to run with 100% percent passion, like their hair is on fire. If you think about it, the Steelers of old NEVER abandoned the run, the Steelers of today abandon the run in a heartbeat, IMO it is time to get back to basics, its time to get back to Steeler football, use the run to open up the pass, not vice versa!
