Every team will tee off on Big Ben knowing that we don't have that big threat behind the line. Willie is fast, but he doesn't always fit into Pittsburgh's offense. Just a thought.
Must respectfully disagree with you there. A 1200 yard home run threat coupled with a decent "between the tackles" runner in Staley (when he's healthy) should be enough for the running game this year. Besides, after last year, teams have to respect the pass from Roethlisberger more. That means no more stacking 8 in the box on every first and second down.
The Steelers realize this and is why they placed first round importance in the passing game. Ben needs weapons. I liked Randel El but he just wasn't the greatest reciever. Understandable as he was a QB for most of his career. Holmes is a pure reciever who finds the end zone and is fast.
The offense will be changed to reflect the maturity of the passing game...watch.
