Yea... VERY frustrating to watch the entire offense tonight.... I would have been laughing my head off at the O if I were not a Steeler fan.... The good news is that its just the first game and the cob-webs are still there.... Hopefully they move quick and solve this problem. Therefore, I expect to see "at minimum" gradual improvement... Maybe they should put Redman and Logan back there ?? But one things for sure... you can either shout down the run, or shut down the pass.... its VERY difficult to do both.... Ben tore their secondary apart.... wish there were not so many wasted downs attempting the run....

All I gotta say is that it was game one. We just out toughed a strong defense and we knew their defense would come out this strong. The OL was there on the pass plays and will work on the run plays during this long week of practice.

Bingo. The Titans focused on taking away our running game first and foremost, daring Ben to try and beat a secondary with 2 Pro Bowlers in it. Ben wound up winning that battle.

The Steelers were using the pass early to set up the run, making Tennessee think twice about being too aggresive but obviously it didn't work. Loved the quick outside pass's with Heath Miller leading the way as a lead block. Unfortunately, expecting the running game at that point failed miserably. It was like watching a bomb explode in an orphanage. This obviously needs to be fixed ASAP or we are in deep trouble.

Ben is a STUD.
