Default Re: Rooney wants old Steelers offense

No - that does not mean 3 yards and a cloud of dust - but in the right situations - the running game is in order so that the defense respects it enough to set up some huge plays to the WRs. That offense that day (along with the offense against the Pats this season) looked like a team that could beat anyone, anywhere, on the biggest of stages.

More of that, and this team will steamroll anyone. Go back and watch highlights from that game. THAT Steelers team on THAT day beats the XLVI SB contenders like a bad habit

I did watch the game we ran all over them, THE FIRST HALF. The second half the Jets made adjustments and stopped the run and Arians kept running on first and second down and then had Ben try to complete 3rd and long against a very good Jets secondary. We went turtle and in the end nearly let the Jets win the game. If not for a clutch catch by I believe Brown of a roll out pass by Ben we give the ball up and anything could of happened.
