Default 2009 Points per Game (22.3) vs. 2010 (23)

pretty much exactly the same.

what does this stat tell you?

in 2009 we supposedly had one of the greatest steelers offenses of all time- 4000 yd passer/ two 1000 yd receivers/ 1000 yd rusher/ te having the best year of his career.

this year we dont have all that. we will have a 1000 yd rusher and 1000 wr and thats about it.

our o-line supposedly sucks and cant advance us in the playoffs (but arent we a better rushing team that is allowing fewer sacks).

lots of changes in the 2 years. yet the PPG remains the same. what is the constant?

again, what does that tell you?

The offense this year is about as good as the offense on a team that lost 5 in a row, many to bad teams, and missed the playoffs?

The defense is scoring more this year?

tells me we're only going to get so far and its surprising that we're not around the "8-win" mark right now.

So how do you explain the collapse last year?

It's obvious the key is a healthy Troy Polamalu.

Our time of possession seems better (thus better rushing) which may lead to a rested defense. Translating into a defense that can win games for them?

I think Arians might be on a hot seat and I'm curious to how he responds Sunday. Go back to no huddle?

Do you think we will go back to a soft defense without Polamalu?
