Lightbulb El and Cedric.. "Dont blame us"

http://steelersfever.com/forums/show...4954#post34954

You can read the article but this really jumped out at me...

Quote:
"You're talking about 15 to 20 times a game that we throw the ball," Wilson said.

The Steelers actually attempt a league-low 24.1 passes per game.

"Most of those passes are on third down -- when the defense is ready for the pass," Wilson said. "That's asking us to be exceptional."

In last Monday's 26-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, the Steelers ran the ball on first down on six of their first seven possessions. They managed just nine yards. Wilson would like to see more first-down passes.

"I feel like we've made the plays that have been called to us, which is very rare - very rare," Wilson said.

I was planning to link to this article until BlitzburghRockCity beat me to it.

Not surprised to hear Wilson griping again - this guy is a cancer in terms of team unity - would be interested if he had the same rep with the 49ers, in which case I wonder why the Steelers signed him.

This quote is particularly interesting -

"I signed here because I thought, with Ben, sooner or later, they would start throwing the ball," Wilson said. "Hopefully, he's going to want to make the Pro Bowl one day and he's going to want to become one of the best quarterbacks in the league. So, there's going to be a demand to throw the ball around here."

Always good to have someone encourage the QB to complain about how the offense operates.

The greater significance of this article for me is that it appears the Steelers are getting into finger pointing as the season unravels. This could turn into a repeat of the 1998 and 1999 collapses if the Steelers lose on Sunday.

I never liked Cedric Wilson he was a one hit wonder it SF and he really didnt do much for them. He is a smaller slower Burress. Bring in Quincy!! Cedric has go to go.

To be fair to Wilson, he is smaller, but he's much, much faster than Burress will ever be.

This is not that big of a deal...nothing like Meshawn's "Throw Me the Damn Ball" nonsense...

I think Ben and the WR's all have a legitimate gripe. We do need to be more balanced. I don't see it as whining, i see it as them wanting to help make us a much better O.

Wilson needs to keep his mouth shut. He obviously doesn't understand what the Steelers as an organization are all about. First of all, don't complain to the media about not getting the ball --- take it to the coach. Second, the Steelers are never going to start slinging the ball around so that Ben can get into the Pro Bowl, and I don't believe that Ben will ever expect that. Pass more? Sure. But hopefully not to Cedrik Wilson. He doesn't fight for the ball much and most of the INT's this year have been thrown his way. Move on up Quincy Morgan.

Here we go.

I agree they may have a gripe, but seeing this type of stuff go to the press indicates dissension and a coaching staff losing control of its team.

When Burress popped off about this he got ripped and the Steelers did not try to keep him-unlike Burress, Wilson has not even produced. Unless Wilson received some assurances prior to signing that the offense would open up this year, he should zip it with the press and limit his complints to the players and coaches.
