Default What I wanna see out of the Steelers/Wish List

Out of the team:

To play like a team,have each other's backs out there.

Don't rest on your 2005 seasons and Super Bowl rings.

Out of players:

Ben Roethlisberger- Play consistantly good football.Don't try to fit it in triple coverage,it'll jsut get picked.Take the 5-yard completions instead of always taking a chance at a long-gainer in close coverage.Stay off the damn motorcycle and stay healthy.

Willie Parker- Hit the holes with conviction,don't *****-foot into them.Hit them hard and fast,stop the hesitation.Stop trying to bounce EVERYTHING to the outside,you can get a nice run up the middle.Let the holes develop,be patient isntead of trying to get to the outside so quickly.Take the 3-4 yard gainers when they are there...a 3 yard gain is better than a three yard loss when your dancing around in the backfield.

Hines Ward- Just stay healthy and be a mentor to Santonio.

Joey Porter- Back up your talk.You want the huge contract after this year,then show something.You backed it up against the Dolphins...then you kinda dissapeared for the rest of the year.

Troy Polamallu- Just keep doing what you do,you're the most dynamic player in the NFL.

Charlie Batch- Keep playing well in relief of Ben,you're a lifesaver.

Anthony Smith- Keep the hard hits a comin'...but stop showboating.It makes you look like a fool.

Ike Taylor- Reform to the 2005 Ike who earned himself the contract.Be that lock-down Top 5 CB again.Don't rest on your 2005 laurels.

Santonio Holmes- Keep working on your skills at reciever,you'll probally be the #2 guy this year,prove me right when I said that you were the best in the draft.

The coaches:

Mike Tomlin- Prove that you were the real deal.Bring the AFC North crown back home to Pittsburgh.Be decisive in your desicions,don't second-guess yourself.

Ken Anderson- Bring Ben back to being consistant.

Bruce Arians- Get us back to the running game,I don't like this pass-happy crap.Ben will get his yards and TD's...but we gotta run the damn ball!

I think Tomlin can make the secondary better seeing how his background is in the secondary.

I gotta agree there.

Seems like your asking for both things here... Here is how I see it. Willie is learning how to run at half speed in the backfield, 3/4 speed through the line, and full speed past the DB's. He needs to do this to allow the blocking schemes to develop. I saw him go NUMEROUS times through the hole in the line... even times when I thought he SHOULD try to bounce it outside. However, most of the time, the big problem was that the O line couldn't block if thier laugh depended on it.

NOPE... show me the last run-first, run-over all football team to win the SB. It doesn't and won't happen. Run first teams destroy most of the teams in the NFL... but they have no ability to come from behind and win playoff/SB games. Last year, we won because we had a very good PASS GAME. We drove, got up, and won the game. Go back and look at all the AFCCG's. Why did we lose those? Because we were a one dimensional team. When necessary, we couldn't come back and win. In this league today, we need a balanced offense. Strong pass....Strong run. Do you REALLY want to go back to 8 and 9 people in a box against us? Wanna make the run better? Develop a strong pass game. Safety's have to stay out of the box. Now, Willie only has to beat 7 people in the box. Once they cheat up a safety, through the bomb to that side, 30 yards downfield. It won't happen if we only focus on the run.

I agree with everything else... except that you have nothing to the O-line.

O-line: Please. actually block. Follow your schemes. Don't give up when you are beginning to get burned... put in the extra effort to FREE WILLY!

Solid requests. With a new HC coming in, I can see those things coming to fruition!

Ok where is the OLine? For all the what those players can do better that you mentioned. How about the Oline? They were average at best this year. The pass protection was terrible and that fact Ben was sacked over 45 times proves that. Even the run blocking wasn't there at times like in years past.

As for getting back to the run game? Kind of hard to run the ball when you're down like the Steelers were alot of times this year thanks to the turnovers.

I'd like to see them carry on the Steeler tradition of being a classy football team always playing with pride even if you are losing like they did this past season!!

A painful example: '97 AFCCG - 2nd and goal at Broncos 5 yard line, trailing by 10. The Bus in his prime, hitting on all cylinders, Broncos couldn't stop him - Korkie throws a pick into triple coverage in the end zone. 'Nuff said.

God what a terrible throw by Kordell. Itsn't that when Romo taunted Kordell afterward.
