Default Steelers Offense is slow

Nobody in the National Football League does less with more. I've been watching Steelers football since 91' and it is just painful to watch our slow lethargic offense move down the football field. God damn it takes them a long @ss to line up and call a play. No audibles to relinquish the pressure? How about when the defense calls a jailbreak that we throw to our RB'? Just a thought! This offense is so predictable, it is pathetic. Sorry, I am just so frustrated that we lay an egg when we play a quality opponent. It seemed as though most of these big games are always within our grasp but we always seem to come up short. By the way, I am still not sold on Ben Roth in the big games. I will give him credit where credit is due (i.e., 05' playoff run to the Super Bowl).

It seems as though if our offense does get into a rhythm early, the coaches shut it down. Our offense is definitely a timing offense and must run on high octane fuel for 60 minutes. I disagree with the coaches shutting down the passing game. I do miss having a power back that can knock LB's on their @ss.

the offense seems to lull themselves to sleep at times they look great between the 20's then mental breakdowns happen. It kills me i normally yell at the TV! You are not sold on ben wtf better get used to him he will be our QB for the next decade or more! ben gave us one for the thumb bah I'd take ben over ANY other QB out there right now!

Enough said. You weren't around in the eighties, I see.

You ain't seen nothing (literally) until you have seen the likes of Cliff Stout, Bloody Blister, Mark Malone (although he had two great receivers to throw too in Stallworth and Lipps), Scott Cambell, ect, ect ect, - throwing to the likes of Dwight Stone (hands) and Weedgie Thompson.

Edit to add: I can't believe I forgot David Woodley.

Also, for the record, we had to walk up hill both ways to get to and from the games at Three Rivers, in out barefeet in three foot og snow. So there.
