The Steeler transition
If you haven't noticed it started already and it will continue for 2013 when we see new faces and some popular Steelers released.
When a team is in transition it takes time for new players to develope, some growing pains in the process too.
We have a good core of players to accelerate that transition but it won't come without patience, something we as fans don't have.
I look for the Steelers to be better next season, but will it be enough to make the playoffs?
I realize we need several positions filled, but for me it all [U]starts up front in the trenches.[/U] We must improve both lines first, then the other positions. Example, you could have an average back look good when he has a great line, and when you have a QB like Ben a good line will bring out the best in him. Same with the D-line, we haven't seen the production needed their. A dominate NT will make our ends better and our LB's as well.
Our Steelers experienced a boat load of injuries, maybe a healthy Steeler team could make a real difference, but still, players we draft or bring in have to be productive in order to accelerate that transition.
