Question Our passing game in trouble?

Wow, our divisional opponents sought to boost their passing games. How will this impact on us?

Thoughts?

My thoughts? Our Dbs will be tested. We won a Super Bowl in 05 with minimal passing game and can again.

They key for us this season will be Defense and also the run game on short yardage plays. If these 2 elements of the game succeed then the Steelers will come out with Wins in most situations.

We just need to be able to pass the ball effective when we do pass and not turn the ball over and Dixon needs to understand throwing the ball away is not a bad thing.

yep - Turn up the heat. Our defense will crush Palmer and flatten Flacco the Choker into the dirt.

WR's don't matter if the Qb has no time to get them the ball.

Besides, most of the additions in the passing game in our division were made by adding a bunch of has-been WRs. I'm not worried at all. There's a reason TJ was dumped from Seattle. Boldin might be o.k., but he's still not the receiver he was before he had his face crushed. T.O.? He sucked with the Bills and he sucked with the Cowboys before that ... so are we really worried about him? And last but not least ... Cleveland sucks.

Did I miss anything?

Look at T.O. stats with the Cowboys and you will be hard pressed to find a more productive receiver. Its one thing to not like the guy but to tell an out and out lie is just ridiculous
