Default Run Game Is a Must!

We all have to admit here getting the run game going to of the top priority. You have to run the ball when Parker has stats like 17-1 when he runs over 100 yards. Not only because of that reason, but good runs equals play action one on one with DB.

That means you o-line must step up and have your best 2 games of the season right here! Make every block count and i tell you now if you do your job Ben and Parker will do the rest!

Go Steelers!

Agreed. We run more against Denver and we might've won that game.

Don't be surprised if you see the ratbirds stack the line against us (ala the broncos). Ben will definitely have to manage the offense this game - take the lead early and score often.

If the defense had showed up at the game in the 1st half, they would have won the game in Denver. I'm STILL mad about that game.

That stat is a false correlation. (as is the stat that says we win when Ben throws less that 30 passes) These stats occur in games where we get the lead . . . which means we have a balanced attack early, and we run the clock out in the second half (hence less throws, more runs)
The games where we're down are the ones where we need to throw and can't afford to run as much due to the clock.

I think our running game and our offense in general is doing just fine.

The Steelers O's backbone has long been its running game - it's been the Steelers' trademark since the 70's. This season, the O seems to be becoming more balanced in its attack and I especially loved the combination of the running and passing plays in both the Hawks and Bungles game. Throw the combo at the Rats, totally confuse Stabbit Ray & Co., give Ben some time to make those throws and for God's sake - put Danny Kreider back there to open up a few craters for FWP, and the Steelers will find the EZ multiple times on Monday night.
