GB leading rusher 464 yards - 27 pts/G
NO leading rusher 602 yards - 29 pts/G
DEN leading rusher 731 yards - 30 pts/G

2011
NE rusher 667 yards - 32 pts/G. (their rb now is a luxury)

Why have all these offenses been putting up big points year after year without a feature back and the Steelers can't?

RB should be drafted late- they have short careers and they are busts often. I'd rather have an OL or DL 1st that plays 13 years than a RB who plays 4.


I completely agree with you. Unless it is a once in a lifetime pick (ie: Adrian Peterson) then it is a wasted pick. Trent Richardson did not do much for all the hype around him. Either did Mark Ingram on the Saints We don't have a qb that makes the quick read (ie: Marsha, Manning, or Brees) so we do need a RB to complement Ben, but it doesn't have to be first round pick.

I agree that it doesn't need to be a 1st round pick, but I thought Richardson played as well as expected as a rookie on a weak offensive team.

Plus he played part of the season with broken ribs, which he admitted affected him down the stretch.

true. to be honest giving mendenhall another shot might be the most viable option.

I think the Steelers problem w/ Mendenhall was his head this year. Being suspended for conduct detrimental to the team is not a good sign, especially on the Steelers. He is by far the best back we have.

Also, above I am not saying Richardson had a bad season or is a bad back. But was a first rd draft pick worth it for 950 yds rushing? Maybe if you have no other needs. I think RB can be found in the later rounds. Just my opinion.

I agree with you and I have read several scouting services that have said the RB class is especially deep in the middle rounds of the draft this year.
