Re: Rooney wants old Steelers offense
BTW the year Foster lead the Steelers in rushing. The most yards by a Steeler ever 92 we avg 18.7 ppg and the defense gave up 14 ppg. We had an 11-5 record and did not win a SuperBowl. This year we avg 20.3 ppg and the defense gave up 15.9 ppg and had a 12-4 record and the only thing in common is we did not go to the Superbowl.
In 2000 bettis lead us in Rushing either the second or third highest total ever, we scored 20ppg and the defense gave up 16 ppg and our record was 9-7. Running for running sake will not yield more points or wins.
The only constant with the Steelers has been great defense. And I will disagree with anyone who does not see the importance of not having turnovers and the importance of a defense that creates turnovers. They are the game changing plays that can not be planned for.
