Steelers show adaptability to a range of challenges
BY WILL GRAVES Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Mewelde Moore has no plans on being the guy who replaces Hines Ward.

That doesn’t mean the Pittsburgh Steelers running back can’t fake it for a play or two.

Moore did his best Ward impersonation during the team’s first drive last week against New England, lining up split wide left then going in motion as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger barked out signals. At the snap Moore slanted toward the middle of the field and Roethlisberger hit him for a 5-yard touchdown pass that served as the springboard for a 25-17 victory.

Ward ran the exact same route for a touchdown three weeks earlier in a win over Tennessee, though Ward threw in an acrobatic leap into the end zone for effect. Moore stayed grounded, mostly because teammate Mike Wallace did such an excellent job picking off two New England defenders Moore could just stroll to paydirt.

Moore just laughed when asked if he felt his future was at wide receiver, adding “I’m just enjoying whatever I’m asked to do.”

These days, if you want to play in Pittsburgh’s offense, that’s a little bit of everything. One of the main reasons the Steelers (6-2) are surging heading into Sunday’s rematch with rival Baltimore (5-2).
