Default What is it that we need???

What is it that we need to get over the hump? Coaching, RB's, WR's, O/D Line, DB's ? What is it? We have been a good team for a while. Good is getting old. I think we need to open up the O more. Running all the time is not the answer. Ben is a capable passer. Get him better WR's. Use the TE more. (I will say we have used our TE more than in the past)
Dump it to the Parker out in the flats. I think one thing we need to do is have more ballance on O, we are too predictable. I could ramble on and on right now. I'm just FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We need to figure out why our O line is getting man handled. If we fix that everything else will come together.

Replace the turn styles with offensive linemen? That is our WHOLE problem. If they could open some holes our RB's are good enough to run through them, and Ben is good enough to find receivers if he had a pocket.

It's impossible to run the ball as a RB when a defender is standing in your backfield almost every play.

The first and most important thing is to FIX this O line.

Second thing would be to draft/sign a true deep threat to take some coverage off Hines Ward and stretch the other teams defense.

Very bad coaching in my opinion and the offensive line was horrid.

I agree... our O-line sucks, they are not as good as they used to be. I watch the line a lot, and I think Max Starks is playing the best. We need to go O-line early in the draft this year. I don't know if it is age or what... but they are playing like crap.

Your line's not that bad, it just depends on the matchup. If they have small quick guys to pass block they are gonna get beat.
If they have slower guys and just need to run the ball then they are pretty good. They fit into your system. You are a running team. Being a running team is not that bad, especially not in our division. Wouldn't you rather play down and dirty with the Browns and Ravens twice a year than be able to beat the finesse pretty boys like the Rams and Colts that you see once every 4 years?

Just remember who you are, and enjoy it. That's what makes you the Steelers. Do you guys honestly think Ben could be as effective throwing the ball 35 times per game? No chance!

Our Oline is not playing well. And the penalties on them was way to unexcusable.

But we need to pressure the qb more.

We need help with our offensive line.
And the steelers are suppose to be a POWER RUNNING TEAM.....This is most likely Bettis' last year so who is our power back.......Staley is injury prone, and Parker...as much as i love him, is not a power back.
We have a QB we need to be more balanced,,,,,,,,
