Good post! That's pretty much sums it up (in bold).

This team can win the superbowl!

...SteelrFreak....I beg to differ....with all due respect
Our O put up over 150 yards of rushing...I was at the game....
What I saw was an offensive line that was blowing open some great holes for FWP and Mewelde...and doing a good job protecting our QB. My seats were near the endzone where Berger threw both TD's....those throws were perfectly placed in very poor weather.
Overall if you look at what our O has been doing the last 3 weeks you have to be happy....they're begining to gel...especially the O-line...very good news.....and very good timing... Filthyfan

Exactly the point, why after a 5yd gain on 1st down (running the ball), do you go 5wide in crappy weather.

I'm extremely happy the O is beginning to gel. I'm looking forward to a good effort this week also. The Cowboys secondary is weak and the D-line, while desruptive, is on the small side. And as Gonzo has pointed out, the line has played well against 3-4s.

I'll tell you why: Because it makes the offense unpredictable. If we had an offensive line that was superior at both run and pass blocking we may not need to resort to sleight of hand, but as things stand, not so much.

How do you get the run game going without a dominant line? Pass a little more. How do you get the pass game going if you're having trouble buying time for the QB? Run a little more. How do you do either without a great line? Obfuscate what your intentions are by passing out of run formations and running out of pass formations.

I, for one, am not a big fan of just selling out by lining up our fat guys versus theirs and running right into the teeth of their defense, especially while lacking a monster power back like Bettis...

I actually don't mind passing in crappy weather...Ben seems to handle it okay and I think it gives the receivers a slight edge being that they know where they're going.

They shouldn't make a living off of it, but I think they can have success throwing in bad weather...heck it's Pittsburgh, they better be able to throw in crappy weather!

That's when you play-action pass! I'm not saying to let weather dictate, I believe my thoughts on that are practical and understood.

That's the point revs, you can't do that 5wide.

Agreed revs, That's why I like the 3WR sets. That let's us have more threats on the field. The threat of the run, the TE, and the D is more spread out also having to defend deep.

I have pointed this out before, but it bears repeating: We should have a QB option in rotation for the 5 wide set. If we spread the D, let Ben take off where the pass rush ain't. I'd much rather have him in control and able to slide than taking blinsided shots. If he runs that a couple times a game, it forces the D to adjust and compenstae, and should create either 1 less pass rusher or a hole downfield.

When I watched the Replay of this game on the NFL network (which in itself amazed me that they showed this game) I caught Farrior on the sidelines after we went up 23-10 saying "Is that enough points to win, yes it is, that's enough points"

Our Defense is so confident that all they want is 23 points and they believe they can stop anyone else from scoring more. Sure, the Colts and Giants did about that and we lost but there were lots of mistakes made in both those games on both sides of the ball that really could have been wins. They were very close games. No one can "beat us down" and the Eagles game, shiver...play that game 10 times and we win it 9, I'm confident of that.

anyway, Our D believes that we only need 23 to win against the Pats. That's freaking Confidence.
