Default Official thread to discuss our offense options

im seeing all these posts about how it would be better to go to our passing attack, while other are strongly supporting our run game.

so i ask you guys, which would you prefer?

IMO i like our air game, we have a great corp of receivers, Ward who'll catch any ball coming his way, and will take hits as well as deliver them, santonio who is a fast rising star in the NFL, Sweed our tallest WR(i think) who can hopefully focus enough to start catching balls and get open, and rookie speedster mike wallace. Mcdonald is also a very solid backup . I dont think i have to say anything about how great big ben is either

Ya because I guess after ONE GAME against a top 10 defense our run game should just never be used again this season?

If we are to repeat as champs, an exclusive pass-only offense will NOT get it done. We need to establish the run in order to make another run at a title. This means better run blocking and our backs and hitting the hole, not dancing. *cough* *cough* Willie Parker *cough*

Until you try it in December on a frozen, snow covered, windy field. If we are go to be a passing first team we'd better build a dome in the burgh.

It's essential to have a balanced attack.
We become one dimensional, the good teams will adjust and it could be lights out for Ben.
It amazes me watching us and other teams in the shotgun formation on 3rd and 1 or 2.
Just punch the damn thing through. Hell, Ben falls forward he gains a yard, even without The Bus in the backfield to give him a push.
