Offensive line needs to be revamped.
Misdirection or rather the counter has always been a staple of the Steelers O. Draws, or gadget runs as you put it, are effective when playing a stout D. Running the football is attitude and rhythm, Something we are not going to have with this OC.
Our OL is a work in progress but with Bruce as the OC we will never have even a little balance.
Our offensive firepower is at WR, but we still need to run the ball better, but I'm not ready to put all the blame on the OL. Our OC with his ridiculous game planning and his inability to adjust to the other team is more of the cause to our lousy offensive showing. With the talent we have on O we should be putting up 28-30 points every game.
