I THINK THE DIFFERENCE IS THEY CAN BLOCK ....At least better than we have been the last few years. Hopefully we aren't smitten by injuries once again and our line has time to gel .

how exactly is bell a finesse player? and why do we need a pure running back to signify we're committed to a running game?

the steelers don't want to run the ball, or pass it, or play defense. The entire organization would rather be out golfing this sunday. Our e opponents are who we thought they were

I hear Tomlin keeps a practice putting green, and a practice net to hit balls into in the locker room. They don't make adjustments at halftime, they all practice their swing and their putting strokes.

i don't know a single linebacker in the league that can cover ray rice in the open field, that's why it works.
