Default Lack of running game////

Shocked to see the Steelers not run the ball more often tonight. I think it's a fair observation that givin' our recent troubles heading into 9'er stadium with a very gimpy QB, that the run game needed to show up. Disappointed to see absolutely no sense of urgency with what was at stake when it came to bigtime situations.

Ben throwing it for almost 50 times on a shattered ankle just doesn't sit right with me. It's not like we were down by 30 to abandon the run at any point. I actually thought Mendenhall has a decent game. Should have fed the backs more to atleast keep the defense honest. Mendy averaged 4.3 yards on only 15 carries with a gimp QB.
