The Steelers for years have sunk money into their defense and now with a franchise quarterback in his prime, itís time to show the offense some love. Look at this breakdown of how much money is contractually spent on defensive players versus offensive for the Steelers. Itís a little mind-numbing, but not surprising.

League-wide, the Steelers rank 4th in terms of amount spent on defense and they rank 29th in the amount spent on offense. If you think in terms of money, the defense takes up $64.9 million while the offense takes up $45.2 million.

pretty crappy editorial if you ask me.

ben is the highest paid player on the team and one of the highest paid qb's in the league. no player who has received one, has ever played out the entirety of their $100,000,000 contract. ben will likely become the 1st player to do so.

its impossible to call players such as miller, brown, wallace, pouncey (all pro bowlers) 2nd tier talent.

the defense is mostly made up of veterans on their 2nd nfl contract. most of the offense are are on their 1st rookie contracts as we field one of the youngest in the league.

this editorial basically says the younger you are the less talented you are which certainly isnt the case.

pouncey, decastro, gilbert, adams are all 1st and 2nd round draft picks. 2nd tier talent is rarely drafted that high.

max starks, while far from the most talented LT in the league has taken a hometown discount and played on the vet minimum after EARNING the franchise tag 2 years in a row which paid him as a top 5 LT in the league.

i call horse pucky...
