That being said, we won't. It's a dumb article that these guys have to write for offseason purposes. Not enough attention is being paid to the Steelers right now, so why not write an article that puts the most successful franchise back on the front page?

Anyone else ready for April 25?
i would love to see an offensive line built around Pouncey and DeCastro and get back to using the run to set up play actions with ben. Something like that could actually help us "retool" or rebuild the defense, whatever you want to call it, by keeping the pressure off of them to win games

I think that Ben to Brown in this style of offense would be really effective. I think the pieces are there on the offensive line and WR corp, we just need a RB. If we were to draft someone like Marcus Lattimore or Mike Gillislee, then this offensive scheme would be hard to stop with our speedy possession receivers we have.

I like it.
I haven't seen to much of Houston over the last couple of years. But having seen Kubiak's offense from his Denver days I get your point.

One thing I do know about them is their OL is outstanding and cosidered by many to be the best in the league. Having a back like Foster, which we don't have at the moment, would certainly help a lot. At this point in life, this would be a wrinlke I'd actually enjoy getting......
