    I can certainly see this. So much will depend on injuries (fingers crossed). Even when Ben comes back, who will he throw to? Hines is having more difficulty staying healthy, Battle and El don't scare anybody and Wallace is going to be getting all kinds of "love" from DB's that he never saw last year.

    Strong running game and good D will get us so far, but we need to be able to pass the ball to get over the hump, IMO.

    I think that Harrison's lack of production was as much due to the two key injuries as it was him hitting the wall.

    When healthy, the Steelers D brings a myriad of concerns to an OC.

    * Always have to keep an eye on #43
    * Smith and Woodley on the left side of the D coming at you
    * Can't run up the middle because that is where Big Snack lives
    * DMVP coming off the edge
    * Solid secondary with Troy, Clark who hits like a truck, Ike who provides solid coverage, and now BMAC to compliment


    Without Smith, Troy, and with Gay in coverage the gameplan is:

    *Stop Harrison and we can torch this D.

    yea, all I know is that these "experts" who put these together are ALWAYS wrong, I dont get the point of why we follow them or why they are even on every sports web page, look at last years training camp #19...what a bunch of geniuses
