From 200-2005 an aging Jerome Bettis ran for 5199 averaging, 866 yards per season and had 50 touchdowns averaging 8 touchdowns per season *including 2 1000 yard seasons, 2000 + 2001*

From 2004 to 2007, Willie Parker ran for 4198 yards averaging 1049 yards per season and had 19 touchdows averaging 4 per season *didn't start in 2004 by the way; still had 3 1000 yard seasons in his 3 years as a starter*

Duece Staley added another 978 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2004 and 2005.

A lead blocker like Kreider and great tight ends (like Heath) can really make up for a poor offensive line. Those rushing offenses were amazing with a lead blocker and we will never know how good we could be now...because ARIANS AND TOMLIN don't like that bruising lead blockers anymore.

They think that Carey Davis and a poor run blocking David Johnson are better than a Jon Witman, Tim Lester or Dan Kreider.
I said our offense has never really good. Did you watch football? Yeah the team could run, as they always have, but the passing game was polar opposite until Ben came to this team. The Steelers offense has never been really good. Average at best. We've always relied on our defense.

In 2007 Willie Parker was terrible despite leading blah blah. He was stuffed at the line more than anyone in the league that year. He was great in 2006, but our quarterback was horrendous coming off of his head trauma. Our team has always been defensive oriented.

Looks like he's worth about 4 from that Titans game

With all of that ass whopping they pulled on us, we were only down by 1 touchdown. Smashmouth football is obsolete. The Colts/Dolphins MNF game a couple of years back really showed this. The Dolphins had the ball for 45+ minutes yet still lost because Peyton was scoring on them in 2 minute drives. It was nuts.

I'm not sure what to make of this. If you're scoring TDs, then running time off the clock and keeping your defense rested is always a very good thing, no matter what the trends happen to be. If Miami was just marching up and down and then punting or turning the ball over, well... I hope that's not how you define "smashmouth". That's called "Penningtonball".
