Default Fix the Run offense. How do you think...

...the Steelers can be more productive running the ball?

Sure, some are going to say start Moore, but really. Is Willie Parker starting REALLY the problem? Even if Moore is better, IMHO the run offense has a much deeper problem and it's one that's making Ben have to do more than he should.

Stop running Willie Parker.

Mewelde Moore and Gary Russell are our running game. Moore is versitile and makes nothing but plays in his hands and Russell can get the tough yards.

I wish Mendenhall didn't get hurt.

Makeshift O line, Weak Linemen, and Coach I send a lot of Porn instead of gameplan Zierlein. The reason I like Moore right now rather than Parker is that as crappy is the Rushing game is , Moore makes the best out of nothing, and thats what we need. Its clearly shown that Parker cannot run effectively without a solid blocking line and thats something that we do not have right now. Obviously our blocking schemes are horrible and have been exposed from last year so they need to start drawing up some new plays on the board.

our o-line and run blocking is the problem, although i dont think parker has really been up to his usual since getting hurt. i don't know if there's much to do to fix it at this point in the season, but i would start moore.

And I forgot that Bruce Arians is an imbecile. We've won games IN SPITE of him.

The sooner he gets fired, the less control he has, the better the offense gets. Like I said before, it seems when BEN has control he gets the ball rolling. Under Arians' brilliant playcalling, Ben gets skittish and messes up. As he did plenty today. Sure enough, we lost.

Arians is an bonafide idiot who is out of his league in the NFL.

You fix the run offense by getting a better running back, that's how. Not by trying the same tired shit over and over and acting like it's surprising when you have a miserable performance like today.

What's too bad is, even though Moore is playing better than Parker, you can see he's not the long-term answer to all our problems. Unfortunately, I don't see this getting truly fixed until next season, because we're stuck with the guys we've got. I only hope it'll be good enough to carry us through the playoffs this way.

They drafted Mendenhall with the hope that he would eventually take over the starting role. But unfortunately his season got cut short thanks to a Killah Ray hit and we'll have to wait until next year to see if he is the real deal. If he's not...we're in trouble.

At this point we can only patch things up. In the off-season, after SB #6, Steelers will need to start the fix by firing Bruce, the focusing on building that O-line. (Yes, I'm an Arans hater, even when we pull of #6). So for now we'll have to patch up that line and get our backs to pound the ball more.

Onward to our scrimmage game against the Stains!
