Default is it time?

sorry if already talked about, but after wathcing last week's replay is it me or is it time for melwelde to take parker's spot as the starter? i have been a supporter of willie since the beginning but something is missing with him. cant pin it down . IMO RIGHT NOW, melwede is doing a better job of pass blocking, catch passes, and running up the gut and getting the yards what count the most. after watching the replay of last weeks game it seems parker 1 yard runs could be 4-5 yard runs just from his style and substance. it will hurt his feelings, but feature melwede sunday, and watch him show what steeler football is all about. best offseason signing since farrior. god bless

I'd kinda like to see Willie come in after the second half for the 1-2 punch and hammer it home on fresh legs and against a tiring defense.

I think Willie is still botherd with his injury a little bit he is not back to 100% I like the idea of bringing him in toward the middle of the game with fresh legs like Steelman said.

Last week, it was run once, pass, pass. Or should I say run once, pass once., Ben gets nailed once. Can we be a little less predictable?

Yeah, but there are people who think he causes problems even when he does rush for 1,000 yards. It's all right here in this pamphlet.

No

Its time to run the Ball Effectively on 1st down and stop with the -1 yard plays.

Its time to get back to smashing the ball ahead and making the cut at the 2nd level instead of in the backfield.

Its time for every single player on offense to be more efficient from the first play to the last. Everyone of them.

4 drives a game. That's all we need. 3 Tds, 1 Field goal. And we will beat anyone we face.

That's 1 drive a quarter. Thats it. Just get me 1 scoring drive a qrt, finish the drives in the redzone and our D will do the rest.

Time to manage the offense, take care of the ball, not make stupid plays, and get the job done. No more excuses, or "we need to do this more" crap. Simply run the plays effectively and get the job done.

Now.
