"Mucho Stinko" isn't all that, IMHO.

More aggressive play from the defensive front and more consistent play from the offensive line.

Of course team chemistry is important and it will be critical for Tomlin to bring that together (like Payton has done in New Orleans) and for the time being, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt in that regard.

What is needed:

1. Solid special teams.
2. Minimal QB turn-overs
3. A return to more of aa "pound the ball" running game.
4. a solid o-line.
5. Rise of the "Steel Curtain?!" (I think we can do it!)

The team has the talent, the ability, and the experience. They just need the leadership and the hunger. Looks like that could come to past.

Watch out NFL, the Steelers are returning from their slumber!

Nope, not based on one season. He was simply another underachiever on a team that essentially took the year off.

I think the O-Line needs the most work with protecting Ben and giving him time to throw!! When Ben has all day to throw~he is AMAZING!!

Also the best thing that Mike Tomlin can do is to impress the Steeler Nation with his philosophies of football and I think he is off to a great start!!

I think the O-Line is our biggest problem. we can run the ball with Willie P(verron coming back will help), the DEF is solid with some minor tweaking( mark my words, IKE will return to SHUTDOWN status), we just need to give Ben more time.
