Spread the field, throw it all around and occasionally hand off while the defense is spread out.

Great to put up numbers, but cant control the clock and run the ball down anybody's throat. The formula for getting to the playoffs.....but not winning in the playoffs!!
but all those players sucked and tim couch/holcomb was the qb. only northcut has shown the staying power of nate washington, let alone holmes, or ward.

were there any te's worthy of mention on that roster?

green, jackson, and white, cant even hold the jock of mewelde moore, let alone any of our other rb's.

im definitely NOT worried about what arians is trying to do based on the bare cupboard he had to cook with in cleveland.

Sounds good - was hoping they would do that a lot sooner, but better late than never.

Ben is downright deadly when he rolls out, which he proved his first two years. I don't think his natural mobility is being fully utilized, except when the pocket begins to collapse and he has to move to avoid a sack.

holmes cant say enough good things about hines or sweed. says sweed is learning to calm down. he came into camp way to jacked.
Funny, but can't say I blame him any!

Thanks for the updates Tony! Good to hear some Steelers football. We're stuck with Sooner football here.

there will just be a bit more scheming and technician aspects as opposed to just mauling.

in closing, pat and ryan say ben looked terrific today. (hes looked perfect all camp).

these EXPERTS are giving the AFCNorth edge to the steelers.

Can't wait to see Ben on the field. The west coast offense is for "pussies" like Farve or Joe Montana?

That is my concern as well. I do not like Arians at ALL.

I think she was going for sarcasm, which doesn't always show up well in message boards.

To the comment about spreading the field getting you to the playoffs but not winning, I do recall that Peyton won a Superbowl a few years ago.
