Yes, but even Cowher would recognize and adjust to use the pass on FIRST DOWN to open up the run.

The Steelers are trying to go back in time with the offense. They are mostly concerned with TOP rather than scoring. This is why they don't use the no-huddle often, and when they do, they wait until the play clock goes down to snap the ball, allowing the other team's defense to change personnel.

Outdated philosophies. The Steelers need to come into the 21st century.

Looks like the standard is #20-25th in the league, after the last two years there's no evidence to the contrary.

The Standard on offense is running two back to back slow developing draw plays to your slowest running back on the team and then getting sacked on third down. Can we scrap this draw play from the playbook? It is worse than the bubble screen.

My god, and its also telegraphed when they do it because Dwyer stands inside of Bens jock whenever they run the draw. They are so close to each other they should just start holding hands so they remember the play call

I never ever guantee any victories but I bet we would win convincingly. (

I really hope we don't try to play this one for pride and we just use the game to try new things and play our young players. Yes I know it sounds stupid to get swept by the Browns, but the only thing we gain by beating them is lower draft pick. Let our young guys play, run some new plays on offense (since ours aren't working) and rest the vets that barely made it through the season, if we win we win if we don't we don't. It's more beneficial to the team to do that then to play all our starters and act like this game is one we have to win, let's just see what some guys can do.

I heard someone on the radio suggest that maybe Haley should go upstairs and call the plays.

Your stupid unsubstantiated fantasy has been debunked time and time again. Who on the Steelers staff has ever said that TOP is the only thing they are concerned with? Please link to the quote. You can't do it, because it isn't true and you know it isn't.

TOP is useful, but no one with any understanding of the game believes it to be the only important facet to an offense, any more than anyone with any understanding of the game would think it irrelevant.

We'd have more turnovers than points, just like every other time we let BR loose. Which is why the Rooney's had to take control of the OC situation, and get someone who would reign him in and try to force him to get better no matter how much he doesn't like the idea.
