Well, Ben's stats at Miami were:

342 of 495, 37 TDs, 10 Int, averaging 320 yards/game.

So, he can pass more if he needs to ;)

For now we have to stick to the run.
I think once we get to the playoffs, our success is going to depend on the pass.
I hope Washington can work into the offense more
And before we "open" the offense up were gonna need to get a big receiver.
It would be hard to do in FA, because any receiver knows we are a run first football team
However, if we could get another PLAX, or someone who can streatch the field. I think our passing game is going to open up next year...remember, once Bettis is gone, we dont have a back that can pound it and run the clock down, and staley is going to be hurt until 2007, I think the the first position taken in the draft this year, RB, or WR, and that will tell us if the steelers are going to have ben open it up next year.....

I can't believe I am saying this, but stick with what works......Do you honestly think you would have beat us trying to pass?
The running game is what will get the Steelers the division.

Yes...perhaps by an even larger margin.

Looks like to me they tried to open it up against the Ravens and it nearly cost us the game. Granted, Ben was gimpy, but I think everyone on that team understands that the best way to win in Pittsburgh is to grind it out and play stout defense.

Also, I was just re-watching the Bengals game and the reason they lost that game is because they ditched the run.

The Bengals first two drives, Rudi Johnson was a beast. He had three runs for over ten yards that got first downs. Then they got behind and relied on the pass and that was it for 'em.

It's all about the balance.

the bengals achilles heal and their eventual drop this year will be the lack of ability to stop the run...

but yeah, I do think we could beat ya in the air, but it most likely wont happen.. we stick w/ what works 9-10 times.. maybe even 9.5 outta 10

Ben can beat teams with the pass.... He did earlier in the season... Chucking bombs all game, throwing 14 passes for over 220 yards.
