I guess we'll see what kind of football speed he has. There's a big difference between track speed and football speed. Dwyer has never shown that type of burst on the field. I think Bell is a better back by a mile, but we'll see.

Rex Ryan called Santonio the player which his defense found the most difficult to face. Ergo, once Rex became a head coach, he got Santonio.

So... yeah... he was kind of good.

Too bad he has a poor head on his shoulders and poor to average NFL hands

Speaking of WRs, I just saw some film on JD Woods FA from WVa. The kid has great hands. Scuttlebutt says he slow, but he looked fast enough to me, for what ever that's worth. He also blocks, will go over the middle, and fight for the ball with a vengence. This is a great PS prospect.

Default Re: Has The Steelers Offense Improved Enough?

As I see it, this is their overall chart for offense:

QBs 2012:
1. Roethlisberger
2. Leftwich
3. Batch

QBs 2013:
1. Roethlisberger
2. Gradkowski
3. Jones

Ruling: Improvement
Reason: The talent level hasn't changed much, but the durability and youth in the backups makes a significant difference here.

RBs 2012:
1. Dwyer
2. Redman
3. Mendenhall
4. Rainey
5. Batch

RBs 2013:
1. Dwyer
2. Redman
3. Bell
4. Stevens-Howling
5. Batch

Ruling: Improvement
Reason: No change in average age necessarily, but Mendenhall had essentially reached his peak and begun his decline. Bell is a fresh set of legs with lots of upside. Stevens-Howling will provide for a nice 3rd down back that has been missing in recent years.

FB 2012:
1. Will Johnson

FB 2012:
1. Will Johnson

Ruling: Improvement
Reason: A year of experience will certainly help. He seemed to really step into this role last year.

TEs 2012:
1. Miller
2. Pope
3. Paulson

TEs 2013:
1. Miller
2. Spaeth
3. Paulson

Ruling: Improvement
Reason: Spaeth is a much better player than Pope, and has stepped in for Miller nicely in the past.

WRs 2012:
1. Wallace
2. Brown
3. Sanders
4. Cotchery
5. Burress

WRs 2013:
1. Brown
2. Sanders
3. Cotchery
4. Burress
5. Wheaton

Ruling: Minor Downgrade
Reason: It will take some time for Wheaton to step into Wallace's role. When that does happen however, there can be lots of promise. For now though, we are still missing a big-time play-making WR.

OL 2012:
LT: Starks
LG: Colon
C: Pouncey
RG: Foster
RT: Gilbert/Adams/Beachum

Depth: Legursky, Malecki

OL 2013:
LT: Gilbert
LG: Foster
C: Pouncey
RG: DeCastro
RT: Adams

Depth: Beachum, Malecki, Golic, Whimper

Ruling: Improvement
Reason: Added experience plus healthiness. For once, there is plenty of depth on the O-Line and legitimate starters at each position. Can't complain.

So, with that, I think the offense will be much improved.
