Default We're a passing team now

And I like it.

Sure I wish we could run the ball, but in today's NFL, you need to be able to get the ball downfield and we can. This may be our best receiving corps since the 70's SB teams. Santonio is turning into a star and Ward is solid as ever. I think Sweed and Williams are gonna be good as well. And Heath is one of the best TE's in the game.

I remember when we could move it on the ground and weren't explosive with the pass at all. If a team got up 10 points we were done. Now we have a QB who can come back in almost any situation and weapons to help him do it.

They used the WR screens and short passing game as a running game against the Titans. Most teams don't have the Titans run D. If we can pass like this against other teams, we'll be able to gash them for some runs because they have to drop back.

ya we can pass but i sure wish we could run too, it would make our offense almost as good as our defense, which would make us nearly unbeatable

Our run game sucked ass and we won the Superbowl last year. I don't care, I'll have the worst defense, worst offense, crappiest players, dumbest coaches and win the superbowl any year... i'm good with that.

Do you think that running game we saw on Thursday night will beat anybody in rain or snow????

Balance, people. We need balance.

I really wish we had a running game.... If we had a good passing game, a good defense, and good running game we would be unstoppable! There needs to be a balance.

And I dont like it.... To be honest I really wish we went back to the run first mentality. When Big Ben won his first superbowl couldnt have asked for a better formula.

At least back in the day when we were a run first team we could pass everynoe and then. Now that we are a pass first team we cant run to save our lives. Its not just the line to blame even though they get the fair share

We weren't a run first team then either. We were actually a pass first team. Then, when we were up... we ran the ball.

You were a bit too quick with the red ink pen if you ask me.

He said "back in the day" so how do you even know what years he was speaking of?
I can recall a few seasons when the Steelers were DEFINITELY a "RUN FIRST TEAM"!
